From Countdown Oct. 24's Oddball segment:

Keith: To northern Virginia where another frivolous 911 call had been placed. We've played them for you before. I was just kidding about that. Someone called police complaining that their pizza didn't get there in 30 minutes or less, there-by tying up resources that should be used for real emergencies. Tonight's call is a celebrity edition.

Operator: Alexandria 911, state your emergency.

Caller: It's not an emergency but do you know why on one side at the damn drawbridge of 95 traffic is stopped for 15 minutes and yet traffic's coming the other way?

Operator: Sir, are you calling 911 to complain about traffic?

(Pause.)

Caller: (Expletive) you.

(Caller hands up.)

Keith: That voice that sounds so familiar telling the police officer FU, Joe McCain, brother of Presidential candidate John McCain everybody. Who can blame him though he was probably caught up in Obama early voting traffic. Brother McCain has apologized for his rude remark and says he will not be doing any more campaigning, not even about what he previously called the communist part of Virginia.
