Now you can annoy everyone–even if they don’t read dotCommonweal! Get a political ringtone!
Why beat around the bush? Let everyone know how you feel without the mediation of a blog. (So Catholic anyway.) The evil geniuses at Slate have come up with a series of cellphone rings that will leave those around you with no doubt about your political views. They include Hillary’s laugh (I’d use other descriptors), John McCain calling a young questioner a “little jerk,” and of course Jeremiah Wright’s ringing “God damn America!” There is also Obama’s “Yes we can!” slogan and for balance, Hillary’s “Shame on you, Barack Obama!”
The ultimate in sound-bite campaigning. Of course, whether this will hurt or help your candidate of choice is the real question.
