What you least expect to hear upon calling your Senator to tell him to vote for #cutcapandbalance

This as the hold music. So much irony from which to choose, so little time.

I called Mark Udall and Michael Bennet of Colorado. Will call the rest, too. Here’s a list via Red State:

Here are the Democrats who need to hear from you as soon as possible. Each of these senators voted in favor of a non-binding resolution earlier this year supporting the Balanced Budget Amendment. We will find out today if they were serious.

Mark Begich (D-AK) — (202) 224-3004
Michael Bennet (D-CO) — (202) 224-5852
Sherrod Brown (D-OH) — (202) 224-2315
Tom Carper (D-DE) — (202) 224-2441
Joe Manchin (D-WV) — (202) 224-3954
Claire McCaskill (D-MO) — (202) 224-6154
Bill Nelson (D-FL) — (202) 224-5274
Ben Nelson (D-NE) — (202) 224-6551
Mark Udall (D-CO) — (202) 224-5941

Bennet’s office immediately answered and placed me on hold. I waited less than a minute. Udall’s line provided the serenade for a slightly longer wait. Both staffers were polite. Udall’s sported a heavy British accent, not something I expected to accompany Alan Jackson.
