Would You Hang Up on President-Elect Obama?

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) did.


No joke, no snark. It really happened.

It appears that she was afraid of getting tricked a la Sarah Palin and Nicholas Sarkozy. She therefore hung up on President-elect Obama, directly, and then on Rahm Emanuel when he called back to say that it was Obama calling.

She finally agreed to speak with the President-elect after a conversation with Howard Berman (D-CA) who she believed.

When Ros-Lehtinen finally spoke with President-elect Obama, she said:

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.
