Hey Dr. Raj Sherman....Stop Calling My House!

  Do you know what annoys this blogger more than telemarketers?  Unsolicited phone calls from Alberta Liberal Party leadership candidates.  I have received three automated calls from Dr. Raj Sherman in the past few weeks, and it is really starting to get on my nerves.

  The call is awkward at best, with Dr. Sherman stuttering about being your leadership choice, yadda yadda yadda.  He then prompts you to push button 3 to register as a supporter ( which I wonder if the ALP is using towards their inflated "supporter" numbers.) and goes on and on about how you don't have to really support the party or buy a membership ( to paraphrase) in the party.  The only thing missing is a promise that your support will be kept strictly confidential and hey, "no one will ever know." ( Promise the doctor! ) It is simply disgusting.  The call is poorly done at best and very annoying.

 What makes me laugh is the fact he really is barking up the wrong tree.  Either he is using poor PCAA membership lists or a piss poor predictive dialer.  I would never vote Liberal, so his computer simply has it all wrong! 

If random calls from controversial doctors are your thing, then you will likely enjoy the call.  I think Raj is probably a nice enough guy and all, but from now on, this cowboy will be watching the call display from now on.
