Tales from the Campaign Trail

I ran into a friend of mine Thursday night and he relayed this conversation he had recently with a paid worker for the Eric Oeming (D) campaign.

Campaign Worker: Hello, my name Karen* is I'm calling to remind you to vote for Eric Oeming. He has the endorsement of NARAL, Planned Parenthood, etc.

Voter: Hi Karen. You sound like a nice lady. Maybe even a mom. Do you have kids?

Campaign Worker: Uh, yes I do. I have some babies at home.

Voter: Well, I think that's great. I have have 6 of my own. You know I just can't bring myself to vote for someone who supports the killing of little babies.

Campaign Worker: Uhhh...I never really thought about it that way before....well...You're right. I'm just doing this for the job. I need the money to take care of my family. God bless you. God bless you and your family.

Voter: God bless you.

Campaign Worker: Goodbye

*Not her real name.

Nobody likes abortion. They're just doing it for the money.

Mary, where does this friend live? I'm fascinated/sickened by the fact that they would be using their bona fides with the abortion industry as their opening gambit in trying to appeal to "cold-call" voters.

Wow.

That's why we call it AbortionState, I guess.
