I’m Barack Obama. Is Your Refrigerator Running?

When Florida congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen received a phone call from a man who said he was Barack Obama congratulating her on her re-election and saying he was looking forward to working with her as a member of the House Foreign Affairs committee, she let it go on for about a minute before telling him he was a better impersonator than the guy on Saturday Night Live and hanging up. A little while later a man who claimed to be Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s chief of staff, called to say it really had been the President-elect. She hung up on him, too. After a call from the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, she realized it really had been Obama and Emanuel so she took the next call. Maybe it would have gone smoother had Obama not started his conversation by asking if she had Prince Albert in a can.
