We have all heard and written about some of the pranks that radio stations tend to play on our politicians, which have over the years caused a bit of embarrassment.
Word is that Barack Obama called Republican Congresswoman, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and believing it was no more than a prank from some station, she hung up on him... then proceeded to hang up on his newly chosen Chief of Staff pick, Rahm Emanuel.
It wasn't until another politician, once I suppose she was familiar with, Democratic Representative Howard Berman, called and told her she had indeed hung up on the real Obama, that she actually took his next call.
So, Obama tried again and this time he was successful. (Phew!)
At least they both seem to have a sense of humor about the whole thing.
