Pranktastic: RNC redirects angry liberal phone calls to DNC headquarters

How intolerant of them not to listen patiently while the Democrats’ own mob of irate liberal zombies calls in to tell them what Nazis they are.
National Republicans turned the tables on their political counterparts Wednesday by redirecting angry telephone calls coming into their switchboard to the Democratic National Committee.
The DNC released a Web video early in the morning accusing the GOP of inciting mob activity at town hall meetings.
At the end of the video, the DNC instructs people to call the Republican National Committee to express outrage. Callers who dial the RNC’s main number to voice their concern about the DNC’s charges are told to press 1, which sends them to the DNC’s main switchboard.
“We are encouraging people to visit their congressman or their senator,” he said. “As citizens they have a right to express their points of view.”
Steele, sounding angry, then said, “don’t sit there and think that you’re going to direct a bunch of angry liberals to call the RNC when I know full well what that’s all about.” He added that he gets “the joke.”
Steele went on to complain about the “arrogance” of an Obama administration that he said was looking down its nose at his mother, sister, family members and coworkers.
“To sit back and say that this is some Republican cabal is a bunch of baloney,” he said. “And you can substitute that B for something else if you want.”
Steele added that callers should “talk to your own party because they’re the ones that are ginning this nonsense up.”
He concluded his comments by saying, “and besides, I thought it was a good idea.”
Works for me. For dessert, a little something extra in the prank genre from How the World Works.
