Robocalls are Like a Box of Chocolates

Ok, so I got a call from a number I didn’t recognize, and decided to let the answering machine get it. (Yes, I still own a land line because cell phone reception at my house on the mountain is spotty at best).

Forrest Dunbar is the latest candidate to go up against the Congressman for All Alaskans Who Voted for Him, since 1973 – the walrus penis bone gaveling, beanie propeller wearing, fed hating, EPA waffle stomper nemesis, Don Young.

After the robocall was over, I wasn’t quite sure what had just happened.

 

“Hello this is Forrest Dunbar, and I’m a candidate for United States Congress.

I’m sorry about the robocall, but I’m a little tied up right now wrestling this Kodiak… BEAR! (bear growl)

I’ts good practice for fighting on Alaska’s behalf  in DC.  (bear growl)

Of course first (inaudible) to our current congressman. (cougar noise?)

Please learn more about our campaign at ForrestForAlaska.com

That’s Forrest like my first name with two R’s.

Thank you so much.

Sorry again about the robocall, and God bless.”

There was one spot in the message that was inaudible, and I don’t know why there is a cougar noise, if that’s what it is. Whatever the creature, the head of one of its brethren is probably mounted on the wall in Don Young’s DC office. But if the goal of the campaign was to make people pay attention to a robocall, then congratulations.

And it did make me go to his website where I learned that Dunbar is from Eagle, commercial fished out of Cordova, went to The Kennedy School at Harvard, and Yale Law, and that caribou is his favorite kind of meat.

Run Forrest, run.

    I hadn’t heard about him, and no robocall. He should try to get on NPR coffee table so we’ll hear about him.
    Glad I read your blog.

    There comes a time when all good men and women stand up to let their voices be heard! Ck out Irishgirl, we will overcome or shoot the feckers!

    I enjoyed the robocall (!), and checked out the first of Elsie’s links. Remember, it’s not just Republican voters who elect rightwing nutjobs (like Don Young) to Congress, nor is it their best pal, Gerry Mandering. It happens because far too many Independents and Democrats STAY HOME on Election Day. Register and VOTE.

    As one of the people responsible for the robo call, I’ll help clear up the distorted parts: the dog yapping is a chihuahua (Don Chihuahua), and the third line is, “But first I’ll have to get through our current congressman.” Roar!

    That audio link didn’t work for me, so I went to YouTube to see if I could find the robocall there but failed. However he has five videos now on YouTube.

    I was surprised to learn he came up with a musical video entreating people to vote for him:

    Interesting young man. I hope the AK Dems and other smart Alaskans turn out for him.

  6. Really? says:

    What I learned from his web site is how upset he was that Don Young voted FOR the Ryan Budget. Forrest Dunbar referred to it as The Ryan /Young Budget. He was personally offended because it cut funds for various groups like veterans and seniors-citizens, Medicaid..
