During Governor Tim Kaine’s last radio show, he had a caller, ‘Barry from D. C. ’ The Virginia governor had quite a suprise from this ‘Barry from D. C.’
As it turns out, ‘Barry from D. C. ‘ was none other than the President of the United States, who had called to play a trick on the governor who is also Chairman of the DNC and to wish him well. These 2 along with Senators Warner and Webb had quite a whirl wind trip through Virginia in 2008.
According to Politico:
“Barry from D.C.” was on the line Tuesday morning for the last edition of Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine’s “Ask the Governor” radio program.
“Well, Governor Kaine,” said “Barry” when he was patched through, “this is actually the president of the United States calling.”
“No,” Kaine said, cracking up. “Oh, my gosh.”
President Obama said he’d been planning to complain about the traffic in Northern Virginia, but decided to thank Kaine for his service instead.
“I just wanted to say how proud we are of your service as governor of the commonwealth of Virginia and just wish you and your family all the best this Christmas season after a terrific round of service,” Obama said. “We are just very proud of you.”
Governor Tim Kaine leaves office next month.
Obama! You prankster. Imagine being cranked by the President of the United States.
