Canadian comedians called Sarah Palin pretending to be Sarkozy. I’ve seen this a few places, and I wasn’t going to listen to this because radio pranks are usually stupid set-ups and the punchline is somebody saying a dirty word to a celebrity, which really isn’t my sense of humor. But I read a bit of the transcript — the conversation is long enough for exerpts from a transcript — and had to hear the whole thing. They have her on the phone for a long time, starting with a good French accent and some vanilla chat about the campaign, and then saying he can see Belgium from his house…and then just saying ridiculous things in a Pepe Le Pew voice.
It’s ok if you can’t listen to the whole thing, I just started to cringe and feel so badly for her.
There’s a terrifying Stepford Wife quality here because as “President Sarkozy” goes further and further off the deep end, talking about Hustler’s Nailin’ Palin documentary, she continues to respond with campaign slogans:
Masked Avengers: You know my wife is a popular singer and a former top model and she’s so hot in bed. She even wrote a song for you.
Sarah Palin: Oh my goodness, I didn’t know that.
A: Yes, in French it’s called de rouge a levre sur un cochon, or if you prefer in English, Joe the Plumber…it’s his life, Joe the Plumber.
P: Maybe she understands some of the unfair criticism but I bet you she is such a hard worker, too, and she realizes you just plow through that criticism.
A: I just want to be sure. That phenomenon Joe the Plumber. That’s not your husband, right?
P: That’s not my husband but he’s a normal American who just works hard and doesn’t want government to take his money.
This could be our next vice president. Please vote.
