Phone Call from Deval Patrick

Okay, not really, but that's what the Caller ID said. It looks like the Patrick campaign is robo-calling the delegates from last week's convention. For the record, here's his message:

Hi, this is Deval Patrick with another one of those confounded recorded messages. I hope you enjoyed the Democratic convention in Lowell last week as much as I did. I want to thank you for your very warm welcome. It was great to be with so many strong Massachusetts Democrats. We have a lot of work to do, as you well know, but I am convinced that if we work together we can win back the corner office and then revive our government and our commonwealth. I hope I can count on you to help in any way you can. If you'd like to talk with a member of my staff about how you can help, or to address any questions you may have about the campaign, give us a call at 617 210-7998 or send us an email at info@devalpatrick.com, that's info@devalpatrick.com, and someone will get right back to you. I look forward to working with you. All the best to you and your family.
I thought it was kind of nice; after all Tom Reilly's never called us and he lives about a mile away from the .08 Acre Homestead (though, in fairness, he's got better things to do). My wife, however, is not as easily impressed. She told me that she would have been annoyed had she been the one to pick up the phone.
