Typical Florida political story of the day: an answering machine captured a call from a volunteer with the Republican Party of Clay County, FL, who was reaching out to potential voters with several important lies about the upcoming presidential election.
"Yall sound like yall are senior citizens, right? Yeah. You don't want Obama. You really don' want Obama. Because he'll get rid of your Medicare. You might as well say goodbye to it."
"I don't know if you've done any research on Obama or not, but he is a Muslim... if he had his way, we'd be a socialistic country."
"Pay attention to Fox News."
"Pay attention to Fox News." Of course how ELSE can you be dumbed down enough to vote for Mitt Romney?
Apparently the Clay County GOP told the St. Augustine Record that the worker has "gone off script completely."
Yeah, does anybody buy that?
In fact I would really like to get a look at this "script." Something tells me we would see references to Fox News and lies about Obama all over the damn thing.
