    The “horror movie call” aspect was somewhat amusing, but depicting it coming from the Obama campaign was a little too partisan (especially the final graphic). I’d advocate for equal time for Romney’s robots, I’ll bet they are just as annoying.

    I think it works better with the Democrats because Bill Clinton is so likeable. If it were Dick Cheney calling, the call would have been horrifying at “hello.”

    I happen to know this definitely wasn’t produced with any partisan intent.

    They would just have to use a different movie genre for the Republicans, like a comedy. A call from Clint Eastwood could be just as terrifying, but it could be funny too. I certain a call from Sarah Palin would be quite humorous.

    I live in Ohio and I was off yesterday. My house phone rang almost non-stop all day long. After the first couple I didn’t answer anymore. I never had to deal with being assaulted like this when I lived in California, although I did get at least one weird, almost funny, robo-call from Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    That was really funny! Definitely an LOL!

    The advantage of living in a non-swing state: The only robocalls I’ve received in the past eight weeks have been from people (”people”) wanting to sell me electricity and lower my credit card interest rate.

    I’m in a swing state and am getting bombarded. Fortunately they only have my land line, which I’m thinking about cutting off. (I only keep it for 911 mostly.) FWIW, every pro-Romney call I’ve gotten has been a robo-call whereas about 1/2 the Obama calls have been actual human beings. Read into that what you will…

    Oklahoma is definitely NOT a swing state, but I actually DID get one call yesterday. It was from the Cherokee Nation, urging me to vote today. It was the first political call I had had in years.

    At the beginning this reminded me a lot of the Firesign Theatre’s “I Think We’re All Bozos on this Bus”. I wouldn’t be surprised if the creator(s) of this clip were familiar with that record.
