    Good thing those guys didn't pretend to be Putin. I'm sure his voice floats right across to Alaska...

    Oh my God, she sounds like an idiot right from the get go. :eek:

    Edit: OMG, you don't even hear her pause when he throws out made up names. You would think she would stop and THINK for a second?

    And I thought this woman had Conservative credentials. She loves a French guy?

    If that was fake, she does a better Palin than Palin.

    "You know, Governor Palin, I must say I loved the documentary they made on your life. You know, Hustler's 'Nailin Palin?'"

    Palin: "Ohh, good, thank you, yes."

    Of course it's fake... it's a prank call. If you mean it wasn't really Palin, her people have already issued a statement:

    ""Gov. Palin received a phone call on Saturday from a French Canadian talk show host claiming to be French President Nicholas Sarkozy," emailed spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt. "Gov. Palin was mildly amused to learn that she had joined the ranks of heads of state, including President Sarkozy, and other celebrities in being targeted by these pranksters. C'est la vie.""

    I guess the blatantly obvious Quebecois accents wouldn't be a giveaway. :D

    Anyway, cute. Anyone can get pranked.

    This is even funnier if you pick up the little french jokes...he drops in little ones about killing baby seals and lipstick on a pig. :D

    FNS: Like we say in France, "on pourrait tuer des bébés phoques aussi" [Translation: We could also kill some baby seals.]
    SP: [Giggle] Well I think we could have a lot of fun together as we’re getting work done, we can kill two birds with one stone that way.

    I'm sure Palin couldn't even find Quebec on a map, let alone identify the Quebecois accent.

    But at least she seemed to take it well when they told her.

    You two cracked me up.

    The call is interesting. How she was reacting to who she thought was the French President is very telling. She is not even close to being ready.

    Good thing Obama will be elected. :D

    You'd think she'd be an expert of some kind on the matter. I mean, you can see Canada from Alaska even easier than you can see Russia from Alaska.

    it sounds like sound bites pasted together. she was probably pranked somehow but I dont think the radio hosts actually said all that stuff to her.

    edit: of course if they did it would just prove even moreso what I was saying in the other thread about her being the worst vp candidate in history:p

    I especially liked the bit about the baby seals, which in French sounds remarkably like "babyf*ck". How she stifled a gasp at that point I do not know.

    I was just about to post this. It is amazing how little this woman knows about anything politics.
    Please don't let her near any office anymore. :eek:

    If the Republicans are elected, the government is still going to take your money ;)

    Conspiracy Theory Alert

    Was Palin sabotaged by her campaign staff? How did these guys get past her handlers? If a head of state wanted to call her (and what a friggin' stretch that is), wouldn't they go through McCain?

    I dont think that is necessarily so, but it does show you the people she is surrounding herself with...

    Since they have already got through all the Secret Service barriers to reach both Chirac and Sarkozy before now, I would imagine they have the necessary protocols sussed out. I would also imagine that Palin is enough of a delusional dingbat to believe that someone like Sarkozy would call her direct rather than go through McCain. You know what those French are like.
