Walsh Phones It In

Here is a report from a reader on a recent phone town hall by Walsh:

I got a phone call tonight from an unknown caller. It was Walsh conducting a Town Hall meeting by phone. It appeared that you could dial *3 to get in line to ask a question. It was impossible to tell how many people were on the line. He also appeared to have the ability to ask polling-type questions during the meeting and have people respondby pressing numbers on the phone.

The only polling question I heard was (paraphrasing)"Are you in favor of Governor Spitzer's new proposal to make it easier for illegal aliens to get a legal driver's license in NY? For example, you used to haveto provide a social security number to get a license.Under the new law you would not. Now there is nothing we in the Federal Government can do about this law since it is a state law, we just want to know how if you support it. Press 1 for yes and 2 for no."

Then, by some freak chance I am sure, the next personon the line was a woman to pitch him a softball question about how "he feels about illegal aliens".

Anyway, I didn't have time to stay on the line to listen to all his nonsense.

Interesting stuff, if anyone else has been on one recently feel free to let me know about it.
