Personal Robocaller!

DCist directed me to an interesting and entertaining article at one of their contributors’ blogs this morning. It’s called part man. part machine. all disenfranchising. and this paragraph (step four in the plan) made me laugh:

4. Record a disenfranchising message. Maybe you warn that back taxes or delinquent parking tickets will be collected at the polling place. Or maybe you direct voters to a new, nonexistent polling place. It’s not hard — it just takes a little bit of imagination and a computer with a microphone.

I don’t know the guy that wrote this, but I tend to agree with him that “the big boys are already misbehaving — I don’t particularly mind if the process gets democratized.” Go us!
