Poor Ileana Ros-Lehtinen. The senior Republican Congresswoman from Florida (Miami!) received a call from President-elect Barack Obama yesterday and hung up on him. Twice!

Ros-Lehtinen thought it was a prank call. She told Barack on the phone the first time, “I’m sorry. But I think this is a joke.”

Obama then told what happened to his Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, who then called Ileana and said, “Ileana, I cannot believe that you hung up on the President-elect.”

So what did she do? She hung up on him as well!

As for her reasoning behind the phone hang-ups she said, "I thought it was one of the radio stations in South Florida playing an incredible, elaborate, terrific prank on me. They got Fidel Castro to go along. They've gotten Hugo Chavez and others to fall for their tricks. I said, 'Oh, no, I won't be punked.'"

Listen, we have nothing against Ros-Lehtinen, but seriously, she thinks she's as big as Castro, Hugo, or even Sarah Palin?

As for Obama, he was simply calling Ileana to congratulate her on her re-election and to mention he was looking forward to working with her as the ranking Republican member of the House Foreign Affairs committee. It wasn't until after the third call which came from Howard Berman, the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, that she believed the calls were real.

So reazling the mistake, she had her office release a statement explaining the misunderstanding. Unfortunately for her, the press release contained some mispellings. Such as Obama spelled "Barak Obama" and Rahm spelled "Rahm Emmanuel."

After finally talking to Obama, she said the conversation went well and added that "He laughed a lot, saying in Chicago they do it all the time. He said, 'I don't blame you for being skeptical.'"

    Hey… if you guys need a new spell check person let me know! It's mildly weird to be making fun of someone for falling for prank calls and releasing statements with typos when they're made in your own article… ex. "reazling"… love you guys so seriously, let me know :)

    She is a politician. Why would she expect another politician to be calling her? Dumb fucking bitch. Anyway, as a member of Congress, she should not be hanging up on anyone. If she thought it was a joke, she should have waited until she knew for sure, or offered to call him back as a means of confirmation. Americans are primarily stupid.

    Prof. Minerva McGonagle [17] says to jimmyjazz: What are you a fucking IDIOT?? Why are you shouting?

    He can call me and I would be happy to hang up on him with no excuses. See Truth According To T o m. Let see more Shenia and Spears and less Barack junk in the future.

    So you actually think that Castro and Chavez are "big"??? If so why did you leave Cuba??? Go back to your Castro and try to live there as a gay blogger and see how that goes… you really lose sense of reality calling them big!
