Pff.  That caller must not have been listening long, like many of the 
callers who got on the air and repeated jokes heard just five minutes 
previous.   What was the producer doing letting them through?

Carr declared that he'd been wanting to do that segment for a while,
and he had been waiting for someone else in the media to raise the
topic.   He was playing his naughty-boy act, _openly_ pretending to
hide behind USA Today's article.

Was that a lady?  It reminded me of Bernard Shaw talking to Dukakis.
