Palin kept a jar with the names of Wasilla residents. Once a week she pulled a name from it and picked up the phone. How’s the city doing? she’d ask.

Link to rest.

I really hate those unsolicited calls I get around dinner time. I hope she's not one of those!

If it was my mayor in person sincerely asking my opinion I'd be thrilled.

If it's some telemarketer bugging me to buy a rainbow carpet cleaner forget it.

I wish our mayor actually cared what the people think. But the reality in Scranton is that Mayor Chris Doherty is an elitist scum who's too busy making his political cronies rich and driving the city into a financial abyss to care about the people.

Will she do this if she is the VP?

It would be nice if my mayor called me, too, but he's probably to busy upholding his already corrupt city government.

It is amazing to me how many people are sure they have elected corrupt politicians in these small towns. Don't you know each other?

Names in a jar, what are we in 1940?

We have computers now, does she not know how to use one?
