Disk Jockeys from Canadian radio station CKY/Montreal phone prank and pwn Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin:
Listen to the call. It's amazing how gullible Palin is -- she giggles like a school girl when she thinks she's receiving a phone call from Nicolas Sarkozy, President of France -- but it is so obvious that this is a prank call and she just doesn't get it. She's oblivious... clueless.
The call goes on for almost 5 minutes and she never figures it out - the prankster finally has to tell her it's a prank!
What a joke -- what a sad, pathetic joke to put someone so dim-witted on the national ticket. Can you imagine Sarah Palin in a national crisis? Good grief that's a scary thought.
In an over-the-top accent, one half of a notorious Quebec comedy duo claims to be the president of France as he describes sex with his famous wife, the joy of killing animals and Hustler magazine's latest Sarah Palin porno spoof.
At the other end of the line? An oblivious Sarah Palin.
The Masked Avengers, a radio pairing notorious for prank calls to celebrities and heads of state, notched its latest victory Saturday when it released a recording of a six-minute call with Palin, who thought she was talking with Nicolas Sarkozy.[...]
"We have such great respect for you, John McCain and I, we love you," Palin gushes, evidently unaware she's speaking to an infamous Quebec comedian named Marc-Antoine Audette.
At one point, Palin even comes close to confirming her intention to one day run for president, when Audette slyly remarks he can see her taking over the big desk in the Oval office.
"Maybe in eight years," she replies with a nervous chuckle.
Over the course of the interview, Palin doesn't seem to realize she's being tricked until Audette comes clean near the end of the call.
"Ohhhh . . . have we been pranked?" she says, in her inimitable style. Seconds later, Palin's aide can be heard taking the phone before the line goes dead.
Throughout the conversation, Audette drops plenty of clues that something's amiss.
He identifies French singer and actor Johnny Hallyday as his special adviser to the U.S., singer Stef Carse as Canada's prime minister and Quebec comedian and radio host Richard Z. Sirois as the provincial premier.
"We should go hunting together," Palin offers when Audette professes a love of hunting - or, more precisely, killing animals. "We can have a lot of fun together while we're getting work done. We could kill two birds with one stone."
Audette then jokes that they shouldn't bring Cheney on the hunt, referring to the 2006 incident in which the vice-president shot and injured a friend while hunting quail.
"I'll be a careful shot," responds Palin, who praises Sarkozy throughout the call.
"I look forward to working with you and getting to meet you personally - and your beautiful wife, oh my goodness," she says.
"You've added a lot of energy to your country with that beautiful family of yours."
Audette then tells her his wife, Carla Bruni, a singer and former model, was jealous to hear Sarkozy would be speaking to Palin. "Give her a big hug for me," Palin responds.
Audette goes on to describe Bruni as "hot in bed" and claims she's written a song for Palin, the French title of which translates as "Lipstick on a Pig." In English, Audette says the song is about Joe the Plumber.
Finally, he mentions a notorious Hustler video titled "Nailin' Paylin," describing it as "the documentary they made on your life."
"Oh, good, thank you, yes," Palin replies.
"That was really edgy," Audette says.
In an interview Saturday, Audette told The Canadian Press it wasn't easy setting up the interview with Republican presidential candidate John McCain's running mate, and described the accomplishment as the pair's biggest triumph to date.
"It really took a lot of work," he said.
"We had to go through the Secret Service, the people in her entourage. It's the biggest coup so far. We're proud to add (this prank) to our top hits."
It took the pair, known for securing surreptitious interviews with celebrities, politicians and heads of state, five days to set up the call, Audette said. The secret to getting powerful people on the line? Time and persistence.
"I wanted to see how (Palin) was on an intellectual level," Audette said, comparing the latest prank to the duo's crank call with pop idol Britney Spears.
"You can see that she's, well, not really brilliant."
Geez, is that an understatement. Sarah Palin is not the sharpest tool in the shed. If she's elected Vice-President she'd need 24 hour security to make sure she didn't make a major blunder.
And she is clearly -- CLEARLY -- not smart enough to be President. And with 72 year-old melanoma survivor John McCain as President, Sarah "Cuckoo Bird" Palin - would be one heartbeat away from the Presidency.
Or one anti-immigration, anti-abortion whack job assassin's bullet away from the Presidency.
Republicans used to be concerned about national security -- their choice of V.P. proves that's no longer the case.
