What's the Word for This?

I know I'm not supposed to call people retarded.

Sarah Palin was crank called by a Canadian radio station, the caller pretending to be Nicolas Sarkozy. But the fact that Palin NEVER figured out that she wasn't talking to French President Sarkozy after about 10 seconds is pretty amazing. Clueless? Hopeless? Incredibly naive/stupid?

I'm sure this story won't be found anywhere on the MSM, but it's all over the European news. Quel surprise.


A few gems excerpted:

Sarkozy: "I just love killing those animals. Mmm, mmm, take away life, that is so fun." He proposes they go hunting together by helicopter, something he says he has never done.

Palin: "Well, I think we could have a lot of fun together while we're getting work done. We can kill two birds with one stone that way."

Sarkozy: "You know we have a lot in common also, because ... from my house (he pronounces it ass) I can see Belgium."

Palin: "Well, see, we're right next door to different countries that we all need to be working with, yes."

The Sarkozy impersonator tells Palin his wife is "so hot in bed" and then informs her that Bruni has written a song for her about Joe the Plumber entitled "Du rouge a levres sur une cochonne," which translates as "Lipstick on a Pig."

The caller asks Palin if Joe the Plumber is her husband and adds: "We have the equivalent of Joe the Plumber in France. It's called Marcel, the guy with bread under his armpit."

He also tells the Alaska governor that he loved the "documentary" made about her and referred to a pornographic film with a Palin look-alike made by Hustler founder Larry Flynt.

She answers tentatively, "Ohh, good, thank you, yes."


Here's a BBC page that has the actual call and an interview with the pranksters, the Canadian version of the Jerky Boys. That brought back memories. Ahhhh, the Jerky Boys. Where are they now? This was my sister's and mine ALL-TIME favorite Jerky Boys routine. We almost peed our pants laughing. I told you I am immature.

ps. If you listen to the entire call on HuffPo, I don't know about you, but I get the distinct impression that Palin's aide is in some serious shit.

Honestly? Tell me you are joking. I think that is funny as hell and sad at the same time. : ) WOW!

that is so hilarious and at the same time I feel exactly how i did after the katie couric interview...completely embarrassed for her.

She's arrogant, ignorant and stupid. I can't watch or listen to the woman as I think she's a walking disaster but I read about the "interview." What's sad and frightening is that this will make some people "feel sorry for her." Goddess help us if they translate that pity into votes.

We listened to the whole thing - all seven precious minutes of it - on Saturday evening. MSNBC? Not sure. I was hoping that SNL would use it as inspiration for a last-minute sketch - complete with John McCain's unrehearsed reaction. No such luck.

That aide? She's out on her ass.

Hi christina,

It's no joke. And that crazy, "Well helloooo..." sounded like she was auditioning for her own porno.

I couldn't help bursting out in laughter. It was so ridiculous what was being said in that call, and I kept waiting for her to figure it out.

Hi sarah,

It's bad enough that we have the Terminator as governor (but somehow I've gotten used to it) but yeah, that was incredibly embarrassing.

I'm sorry you guys have to deal with her when she gets back home.

Hi namastenancy,

If anyone at this late date would change their vote because of this and "feeling sorry for her," then they weren't voting for Obama anyway. And odds are that anyone who feels badly for her probably didn't get the joke either.

Hi d i a n a m u s e,

If she had more time, she could just have her own show and it would be funnier than SNL. She should keep the outfits for her reality tv show, because that's where she'd really shine.

I nearly feel bad for her, because at the end when she backs away from the phone it sounds like she might be on the verge of tears.

And then I think about slaughtered wolves, and I think that this woman ought to cry forever, because she has caused so much suffering.
