Supply your own punchline

The country's in the very best of hands:

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.

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."

Must have been an old entry in the phone directory that was left over from the Clinton Administration.

Then it's "Ms. Jackson, if you're nasty."

I think it fits; a trillion dollars sounds pretty obscene to me.
