caller: hi, I'm calling from Acme Poll, and I have a couple of questions for you about this year's gubernatorial election.
caller: first, do you consider yourself to be a republican or a democrat?
caller: okay, by that do you mean you're an independent, or...?
me: no, I just don't affiliate myself with any one political party
[at this, I can practically hear him panic over the fact that there's nothing in the script for this answer]
me: Christine Gregoire
me: (laughs) correct?!?
caller: oh, right...uh, thanks for your time!
