“Well, Do You Feel Like Getting Nasty?”

Taking the White House’s relationship with the press to an entirely new level, reporters were treated to an…interesting greeting when they attempted to dial into a conference call with senior administration officials Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Security Advisor James Jones.

To the AFP wire story:

“‘Do you have any hidden desires?’ a sultry voiced woman asked.

“‘Well, do you feel like getting nasty? Then you came to the right place – brough to you by the girls of Swank magazine,’ she said. …

“The White House did not offer an explanation when asked how it sent the wrong number in an email listing both numbers – one for journalists in the United States and the other for those overseas. …

“When pressed further about the number, [White House spokesman] Vietor replied: ‘I haven’t dialed whatever number you’re referencing. Please call such numbers on your free time!’”

A joke meant to deflect or a veiled suggestion? You decide.
