At This Point, It’s Hard to Believe Phone Call Metaphors Are Accidental

Oh, man. Jen Rubin spots Hillary at it again:

“I know a little bit about how the White House works,” Clinton said. “And, you know, if the president isn’t exactly on our side — call the first lady, and with Michelle Obama, we are going to have somebody who answers that phone.”

Apparently that call will be coming at “3 a.m., when your children are asleep.”
Think she’s still smarting over the text message being sent at 3 a.m.? Think she’s got mixed feelings about McCain offering a remix of her “3 a.m.” ad?
UPDATE: In a seven-minute speech to women supporters, Hillary did not mention Barack Obama. But hey, they’re united here. You can go about your business. Move along. Move along.
