Don’t ask Congresscritter Ros-Lehtinen (R-They’re Out To Get Me), she’ll freak out and start screaming threats down the phone:
When Obama introduced himself, Ros-Lehtinen cut him off and said, “I’m sorry but I think this is a joke from one of the South Florida radio stations known for these pranks.” Then she hung up.
Moments later, Obama tried again, this time through his soon-to-be chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel.
“Ileana, I cannot believe you hung up on the President-Elect,” Emanuel said. And then-yes, you know what’s coming-she hung up on Emanuel saying she “didn’t believe the call was legitimate.”
Finally, by crossing his heart and hoping to die, ERL spoke to him. But she still had her doubts:
“You are either very gracious to reach out in such a bipartisan manner or had run out of folks to call if you are truly calling me and Saturday Night Live could use a good Obama impersonator like you,” Ros-Lehtinen joked with the president-elect.
Paranoid and Palinesque.
Christ these people are fucking stupid.
Yeah, yeah. I’ll get back to ripping on the soon-to-be-ex president and his pals once the meds kick in.
