Silly Voicemail Transcriptions

I received a robo-call from Romney for President today. Actually I’ve gotten the same message again and again over the past few days. This message though, doesn’t say anything about why I should vote FOR Romney. It only purports to tell me why I SHOULDN’T vote for Santorum.

It-is(?) only stayed-didn’t(?) trust Rick Santoro. Why should Illinois. Thank you for your time. This call was paid for by Ronnie for President In…”
