Take your McCain robocall and shove it! I quit!

Call center workers in Indiana walk off the job rather than spread smears about Obama:

Some three dozen workers at a telemarketing call center in Indiana walked off the job rather than read an incendiary McCain campaign script attacking Barack Obama, according to two workers at the center and one of their parents.

Nina Williams, a stay-at-home mom in Lake County, Indiana, tells us that her daughter recently called her from her job at the center, upset that she had been asked to read a script attacking Obama for being "dangerously weak on crime," "coddling criminals," and for voting against "protecting children from danger."

Williams' daughter told her that up to 40 of her co-workers had refused to read the script, and had left the call center after supervisors told them that they would have to either read the call or leave, Williams says. The call center is called Americall, and it's located in Hobart, IN.

Awesome. I hope that the disruptions to their work and pay are not too severe. These people obviously need the money, otherwise they wouldn't work there. Nonetheless, they made the sacrifice and went home rather than participate. Makes me wonder how much I've really done to help usher in the kind of politics I think this country needs. Not as much as these folks.
