This is so funny I just had to share.
According to Ben Smith on Politico, Joe McCain called 911 – why?
Because Palin had spent all the campaign funds on shoes?
Because his brother had suffered another attack of extreme Maverickiness?
Because a damned librul was threatening to steal the White House?
No. He was calling to complain about a traffic jam! Straight up. No snark. You’ve got to listen to sound files below to get the joke – arrogant entitlement meeting bemused but polite police officers.
Joe McCain: It’s not an emergency but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic’s coming the other way?
Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic? (pause)
Joe McCain: “Fuck you.” (caller hangs up)
The operator then called back, and received this message:
“Hi this is Joe McCain I can’t take this message now because I’m involved in a very … important political project… I hope on Nov. 4th we have elected John.”
Wrong wrong and wrong again
You can’t make this stuff up.
