DJ Punks Sarah Palin
"Sarah Palin has been hoodwinked by a French Canadian radio host posing as French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
In a six-minute call with Marc-Antoine Audette, part of a comedy duo notorious for prank calls to celebrities and heads of state, Mrs Palin said that `maybe in eight years` she will be president.
When the Sarkozy impersonator, speaking with an over-the-top French accent, said his wife was `hot in bed`, Mrs Palin still continued on with the call, if tentatively at times."
This is another in a string of embarrassing incidents for Palin, but this time it`s not entirely her fault. Palin`s handlers should have done a better job of vetting the call, but then again why bother when Palin herself wasn`t properly vetted.
I heard the entire six minute call and it was obvious it was a prank, the shock jock wasn`t striving for authenticity so much as he was playing for laughs. As I was listening to the audio, I was thinking: Dude, you`ve proved Palin is an idiot. Please have some mercy and end it.
The world may not end because the competing economic and military interests of the superpowers came to a boil, but because Sarah Palin got punk`d by a radio shock jock.
DJ: (Impersonating Putin with a phoney Russian accent) Comrade Palin, my condolences on the death of McCain, and congratulations you are now leader of a bankrupt capitalist state.
Palin: Thanks Putin. Ya know I could see Russia from the porch of the governor`s mansion in Alaska. One time I saw you shoot a bear. I remember you weren`t wearing a shirt, you are so muscular. You put that scrawny loser Obama to shame.
DJ: Ha, Ha. I invite you to my summer house in the Black Sea. Leave your Ken doll husband at home, and I show you how we do it Moscow style.
Palin: Excuse me?
DJ: I saw your fantastic performance in "Nailin` Palin", I want to tap your...
Palin: Excuse me? How dare you? You sexist Russian pig. Let`s see how you like a nuclear tipped Cruise Missile up your...
