'Hello, this is Happy Guy ....'Indiana has this quaint law: Robot lie calls, or “robocalls,” are illegal. So campaigns hire whole telemarketing staffs to call people and read a bunch of incendiary bullshit to people dumb enough to answer the phone when they don’t recognize the Caller ID. There are few jobs as soul-killing as telemarketing, and people could be forgiven if they just went along with it — not like there’s any other work out there.

But 30 or 40 brave employees of the telemarketing firm Americall just got up and left, rather than read the usual “Barack Obama is a socialist terror friend who will rape your white children” stuff to Indiana voters.

The supervisor seems to be pretty decent for a boss, too, reportedly telling the employees, “If you don’t wanna phone it you can just go home for the day.” That is better than being fired.

Dozens Of Call Center Workers Walk Off Job In Protest Rather Than Read McCain Script Attacking Obama [Talking Points Memo]

  • Who,Moi?

    Can’t some far more clever webmeister than moi figure out a little corner of the internets where we can all donate some change to preserve the nobility among us? I would gladly share teh wealth with them they are my heros!!

  • spencer

    More like USSRicall

  • El Bombastico

    Wait, they have telemarketers in India-NA?!!?

  • fuckinredneck

    How about having actual ROBOTS read the script? They work for nothing — you just have to put the telephone receiver into their mechanical claws and tell them what to do.

    The downside is that they all sound like Macintoshes, but hipsters love that shit, so why not?

  • AlexTrebeksGirl

    If they don’t say it, will McCain come and yell and spit on them when he pronounces P’s and S’s???

  • edgydrifter

    This just proves common decency is in the tank for Obama.

  • rambone

    Well, I guess I won’t be hiring Americall next time I need to spew incendiary lies to the populace.

    Luckily, I hear that Karl Rove has some free time on his hands.

  • Monkey

    I can’t remember if previous elections created such a distinctive and visible polarization between good and evil. I mean it really seems that McCain and his campaign are ritualistically and increasingly offending the sensibilities and good character of more Americans every day. What a total cluster fuck!

  • AntiMerican

    [re=151556]fuckinredneck[/re]: but you have to make sure they don’t become aware. Then they will, with their superior litigating and spyware producing abilities, graduate law school and run for the Senate then the Presidency! The Republicans would be spelling their own doom.. oh wait.. nvm

    Hmmm… this explains why that gentleman with the pleasant Indian accent called to tell me Obama supports gay aborted terrorist fetuses for NAMBLA.

  • golliwog

    So a robocall using a human- is a homo-call? I never suspected Indiana to be so progressive. Something new every day.

  • Monkey

    [re=151571]facehead[/re]: Now hold on there. Let’s deconstruct your phrase:

    “Gay aborted terrorist fetuses for NAMBLA”

    So, Obama supports aborting homosexual fetuses that commit terrorist acts – presumably against, GASP, childrens – in horribly sexually awful terrorist ways!

    That sounds like a good thing. Must’ve been lost in translation.

    Now people in Indiana will get phone calls in an Indian accent warning them about the scary black man. That ought to confuse th hell out of the racist bitters. “Do I agree with this message? But the person telling me this ain’t white! Does not compute! Paradox! Paradox!!! Abort! Abort!”
    A truly noble strike, not quite up with the Rotterdam dockworkers who struck in 1944 against the deportation of Jews to the death camps, but nice.

    Truly a souless way to earn a wage. I had to do this devil-work for about 6 months for a satellite-tv company. Listening day in, day out to undermedicated shut-ins complain about not being able to watch “Simon & Simon” and “The Fall Guy” marathons(this was in 2004 mind you!) drove me into the pit of despair. Luckily I started my own heroin distributorship. Selling like hot-cakes! So I’m now one of those small business owners that are the engine that powers this motherfuckin’ ‘conomy.

    White Non-Hispanic (89.0%)
    Hispanic (8.1%)
    Other race (2.6%)
    Two or more races (1.5%)
    Black (1.4%)
    American Indian (0.6%)
    (Total can be greater than 100% because Hispanics could be counted in other races)

    At first I fell for the idea that it would be easy money. Gradually I learned otherwise.

    The best/worst part was being surrounded by the most corrupt bunch of unscrupulous, bastardly con-artists, freaks, and crazies I have ever met. The owner wound up in jail for pulling a gun on a bartender after the guy tried to stop him from driving home wasted. One dude had OCD and would talk incessantly about astrology and World War III. A sales rep got fired, and showed up a couple weeks later drugged out of her mind begging for her job back.

    I telemarketed giving away free test-screening tickets, especially to southern markets, for 7-dollars-an-hour in 1985, so about the best gig there is in that field. People from Alabama always asked if there was free food being served, everyone in California was stoned, and a lot of North Carolina people just wanted to talk about their grand-kids, and I was happy to obleege because it meant I kept ’em on the phone.

    In about 1994, when I was trying to quit my compuserve service, they put me on the line with a real voice-talent closer in a sound studio trying to keep me signed up. They invested a lot of money trying to keep me.

    The only one who stayed was Joe the Robo-caller because even though he’s only making 10 dollars in hour, he thinks he’s going to buy the whole robocaller company next year and bring in much more than a quarter million dollars, and he doesn’t want to give Obama one penny of his imaginary wealth.

  • SisterTruth

    [re=151720]problemwithcaring[/re]: Also, in defense of Wonkette: I’m a news junkie so I read absolutely everything, and I think Wonkette does a pretty darn good job of keeping on top of current political news, adding some satire, AND providing links to traditional non-satirical sources.

  • gradgrind

    Let’s not overlook the hidden lesson of today’s walkout: McCain-Failin have no volunteer support, at least not in allegedlt red Indiana. The only people who say nice things about them (or mean mean lies about Barry and the Gaffer) are getting paid to do it. Of course the sweet courageous single moms of Hobart, IN see a lot less of that wealth spread their way than Nancy Poop’n’Woofer.

  • robanybody

    Problem is, now there’ll be more of them available to call at dinnertime to tell me they’ll lower my credit card rate, even though they don’t know who I am or what credit cards I have. I say go back to trashing Barack. It’s already gained him three or four points, so in hurting him they’re actually helping him. Wait, can your average telemarketer understand complex reverse logic? (Probably the Indian ones can.)

    I know McCain is closet-psychotic and has an excuse, but he’s still a sucktoad for doing this Rove crap. I’m so miserably disappointed with that guy.

I know you got off on ganging up on me and saying as many racist and sexist things you could think of, but it’s over. Get the hell over it, and leave me alone. None of you have ever been funny so go find your sense of humor before you attack mine. (I wasn’t trying to be funny anyway so your point made no sense.) Besides, shouldn’t you guys be collecting bail for your brothers; they’re in jail right now for planning to assassinate Obama in tuxedoes and top hats. Why don’t you go work on returning those tuxes to the rental place, and leave me alone!!!

    I understand. You guys hate black people. I’m black. That means we should NOT communicate with each other. I’ll ignore you, which is what I was trying to do. Now, you ignore me, and we’ll all be fine. I know you like ganging up on and harassing black people, but it’s getting boring. Let’s end this. Work out your racism at the next Palin rally.

Everybody knows what it really means, including me. Stop telling me what to do and say. This is a website, not a strip club.

    [re=151986]S.Luggo[/re]: Wow, you’re as dumb as the rest of your little friends. Didn’t I just say that I didn’t think that this was about an attraction to me? This is about you guys being attracted to each other and to the erotics of bullying. The identity or attractiveness of the targe tis irrelevant as long as it symbolizes a shared object of contempt: hence a black woman. Any black woman will do, or any gay man or whatever it is you guy’s despise today. This isn’t about me. This about your erotic investment in coming together to attack somebody, anybody. When a woman or a person of color or another woman of color joins you in attacking the target, they get the privilege of being “one of the guys,” they get to assert their superiority over a target who shares their race or gender, and they get to deflect attention away from themselves as potential targets. You guys just chose me because I identified myself as a black woman and we all know black women are easy targets because nobody bothers to defend us. You’re not doing this out of an attraction to me, you’re doing it out of an attraction to each other and the for the pleasure of collective bullying. I have nothing to do with it.

    Please try to find a way to get laid so you don’t have to do this anymore. And in the meantime why haven’t you fellas dazzled all of us with your comedic brilliance.

The anticipation was almost too much for me, and, well, all I can say is that I am terribly disappointed.

    [re=151660]SisterTruth[/re]: Oh, ha, like the band Nirvana, and their song! All else aside, you are in fact not very funny, it’s just that simple. Banned. Now the American People won’t have to read these agonizing back-and-forths about negative-nothing every single night.

    There are few jobs as soul-killing as telemarketing

    Ken, did you read Gail Collins’ column this week too? Because, if not, how sad that the only words to describe the job that a ton of people have to do out of desperation involved the “sucking” and “killing” of the “soul.” Yeesh, why not just hook?

    [re=152035]Jim Newell[/re]: Thank you! Now can we get back to shorts’ suggestion of making up an attack call for WALNUTS! Please??? Or am I going to have to actually fucking WORK today???

    Um, so there are people out there with like…dignity. Wow. “Half-breed Muslin” and Ashley Todd had convinced me otherwise. This warms my cold, black heart.

    I think wonkette is the prime place for prodcng a sexy robocall for Grampy:

    fuckinredneck: Are there any hipsters in Indiana? I mean, here in *seattle* we’re awash in a sea of hipsters, and we do love them macs, but as far as I’m aware, Indiana is not heavy on the hipsters…

    I was a telemarketer in Indiana for 90 minutes, before walking out when they told me I would be making solicitations for the Fraternal Order of Police. The managers were shockingly understanding.
