I had a very interesting experience the other night.
I was making calls directed only to women, as part of the Bobbie Rose for Congress campaign. Naturally, I wanted to speak with women, but at times a man answered the phone, so I asked to speak with the woman of the house.
Well, I have to tell you that I thought I lived in a time warp.
I heard things like, "She is not coming to the phone, she is getting our clothes ready for tomorrow ... is Bobbie a Democrat? ... she is not going to vote for her ..."

"But, sir, can she (wife) speak for herself?"
"No, and don't bother her anymore."
Welcome to the 21st century, folks.
