How to lose a voter in 10 days

annoyingpoliticalcalls.pngA movie came out in 2003 called How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days. Never saw it. Never had much interest.

But it's almost certain that whomever is running Rudy Giuliani's campaign in Iowa saw it and decided to apply whatever lessons came from it to the political sphere.

Most cell-phone users have caller ID, and use that to screen calls they don't political calls. But imagine seeing 319-000-0000 pop up on your caller ID screen over and over and over again -- with nary a voice mail left behind:

Tuesday, 8:08 pm
Wednesday, 6:19 pm
Wednesday, 8:05 pm
Wednesday, 8:24 pm
Wednesday, 8:42 pm
Wednesday, 8:54 pm
Thursday, 5:55 pm
Thursday, 7:50 pm
Thursday, 8:00 pm
Thursday, 8:09 pm
Thursday, 8:16 pm
This is no exaggeration: The same campaign office was calling me every ten minutes on Thursday night.

When I finally answered at 8:16 -- after ten calls in 48 hours -- what do you think they wanted to know?

"Will you caucus for Rudy Giuliani?"

Short of a personal apology? Not likely.
