We received the infamous out-of-town-PAC-funded campaign mailing a couple weeks ago.

And I think we also received a follow-up robocall, though we immediately hung up upon hearing those first few seconds of silence and returned to our supper.

The mailing and call were so helpful as we weighed the issues: We instantly eliminated that candidate from consideration.

So, candidates, do you also want to lose my vote? It’s easy! Just follow these three simple steps.

1. CALL ME AT HOME.

I’m on the National Do Not Call Registry. If I wanted you, your robocalls, your political action committees, Matt Gaetz’s PACs and your pollsters to interrupt dinner, movies, naps or reading time, I wouldn’t have bothered to register.

I know politicos have exempted themselves from laws they expect everyone else to follow, but abuse of the Do Not Call registry is subject to something even stronger than the law: manners.
