Odd moment

I was listening to Hannity yesterday afternoon, and he had Condi Rice on the show doing spin control duty…which is neither here nor there; the thing that struck me as truly odd was that she came on the show using her speaker phone. Of course she sounded terrible, and as politely and supportively as he could manage, Hannity had to urge her to pick up the damn phone. Now, I’m confident that (a) this was not the first time Rice has ever been on the radio, and (b) she knows that speaker phones always sound terrible on the receiving end. So I guess the question is, how completely clueless and self-absorbed do you have to be to go on a national radio program using your speaker phone?
