lights are on, but nobody's home
It seems there are a number of Democrats who are very miffed about House Speaker Boehner and Senate Minority Leader McConnell both refusing to take the preznit's phone call to each of them on election night.
Dkos (Atrios calls it "The Great Orange Satan") has a write-up on this mini-tempest, which will soon be forgotten, so we better have some fun with it while we can.
The calls came after midnight, a late hour for anyone, so when McConnell's phone (pictured) rang, the old statesman was incommunicado at that hour, of course.
However, the POTUS and the SOTHOROTUS actually did connect, not by telephone, but on internet chat.
Anyway, this hacker friend of mine supplied me with a transcript of that super-secret and highly-classified conversation between the preznit and the speak, as follows:
POTUS: Hey, stud.
JBNR: Hey wazzup? LOL
POTUS: What's goin on?
JBNR: Not much. How's it hangin wid chu?
POTUS: Ah U kno, just hangin out ... oops. BRB
