There's a report out on the Reuters wire that Vice-Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, got "punked" pretty badly by the Montreal comedy team duo, the Masked Avengers. The Avengers called Palin impersonating French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Here is the audio of the interview . The audio is carried on the MSNBC website, so if the whole thing is some kind of incredible hoax, some big players have been taken in.
During the seven minute telephone call Palin:
- Agrees to take "Sarkozy" on a helicopter hunting trip to kill baby seals.
- Tells "Sarkozy" that "Joe the plumber" is not her husband.
- Thanks "Sarkozy" for complimenting her on the new Hustler porn flick "Nailin' Paylin", which he tells her is a new documentary on her life story.
- Agrees that taking current Vice President, Dick Cheney, on the hunting trip would not be a good idea.
The degree of absolute obliviousness comes though clearly on the recording, despite increasingly outrageous comments from "Sarkozy" during the telephone call. "Sarkozy" tells Palin that thay have a lot in common since "I can see Belgium from my house". After Sarah explains who "Joe the Plumber" is, "Sarkozy" likens him to "Marcel, the guy with bread under his armpit". Sarkozy names the Prime Minister of Canada as "PM Deaf Cars" and Palin discusses her cooperative efforts with that Prime Minister. You can't make this stuff up.
