The Republican Senate primary in North Carolina

Earlier today, I received a telephone call from someone working the phones for the Elizabeth Dole campaign for the North Carolina Senate seat being vacated by Jesse Helms.

Greg: Hello.
Ashley: Hello. My name is Ashley and I'm calling on behalf of the Elizabeth Dole campaign.
Greg: I'm voting for Jim Snyder.
Ashley: Oh, really?
Greg: Yes. I think the way Dole is running right now, she should really just call herself a Democrat. I'm going to vote for someone who's actually conservative.
Ashley: [attempts, and fails, to suppress chuckle] OK. Thanks.

I think we both realized at that point that there was absolutely no point in continuing the conversation and we both hung up.
