    @Rifleman, Well does that mean you're not voting for Hatch or Love either? I'll bet they've called you. They both have called me and shown up on my TV and in my mail.

    Yes fellow Conservatives lighten up for crying out loud. I swear there's Hatch surrogates on these comment boards...which is sad. People that support Hatch are a joke to me, especially coming from someone that proudly voted for every Republican except Hatch. He needs to be gone. I voted against every incumbent regardless of robo calls.

    Anyways I just want some pancakes.

    You're right of course. When we Republicans see the results of state and national elections next week a lot of us will lighten up. I'm predicting that Scott Howell won't do as well against Sen. Hatch as Corroon did against Gov. Herbert in 2010.

    As I said, some Republicans really need to lighten up... You give us a bad name!

    "The pancake idea is a great way to apologize for an accident."

    There is a reason why we place our phone numbers an the "Do Not Call" list. We detest these kinds of calls, especially when the come from robots.

    And yes, we understand that political calls are legal. We just note who made them and who not to vote for.

    Some readers need to lighten up... big time!

    The pancake idea is a great way to apologize for an accident.

    Howell has some class. It won't win my vote, but at least I'm not as wacky uptight as some Republicans on here.

    Frankly, the calls should have never been setup in the first place. Mr Pugmire should trace everyone of the calls and personlly knock on the door and beg for forgiveness.

    Robo phones, millions of dollars of trash mail and other advertising. Elections gone bad!!

    Why is a Utah candidate for the US Senate using a New York company to place robocalls? Why doesn't he use his "grassroots" effort to get out the vote in his state? Why can't his campaign spend his money here in Utah instead of outsourcing it to another economy? Thanks for the pancake offer, Ho"We"ll, but we're not interested.

    (Also, what's with his slogan, "End the political gridlock in Washington"? How is adding another liberal to an already liberal majority in the Senate going to end the gridlock that the liberals have put in place? They haven't even passed a budget in over 3 years. And not a single liberal in the Senate has voted for any of Obama's budgets! His slogan makes no sense whatsoever.)
