You just can't make up such tales of incompetence.
Journalists seeking to talk a little foreign policy with high-profile Obama administration officials live from the G20 meetings in London this week were solicited for phone sex instead after ringing up the toll-free number given by the White House.Let's reverse roles. Just imagine the horror if you actually called a sex line and Hillary answered.
In a press release, the White House accidentally listed a sex line number for journalists seeking an "on-the-record briefing call with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Advisor Jim Jones to discuss the NATO summit."
But after dialing, a soft-voiced female recording that was clearly not Clinton asked for a credit card number if you "feel like getting nasty."
My question is, how did they get this number, and who on the White House staff is busy calling it on our dime?
After several efforts to make sure that the phone number was correctly dialed, a call to the White House resulted in a corrected press release. "If you are having trouble dialing into the call, please try this number as an alternative," and listed the international line included for reporters abroad to dial.And this is supposed to be the best and brightest, the most tech savvy administration ever.
A bunch of bumbling idiots who can't get out of their own way.
Good grief, imagine some hack in the Bush administration did this.
We'd never hear the end of it.
