How dim can a dimbo get?
Here's how dim a dimbo can get. Just imagine how effective this woman would be in important negotiations with more practiced international political manipulators and liars if she can be duped so obviously by a pair of radio comedians name-dropping popular singers and comedy stars.

Published Date: 03 November 2008
The full transcript of the prank call in which Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin was tricked into believing she was talking to French President Nicolas Sarkozy. It was in fact Canadian radio comedians Masked Avengers.
Palin: This is Sarah.

Avengers: Ah, yeah, Gov. Palin.

Palin: Hello.

Avengers: Just hold on for President Sarkozy, one moment.

Palin: Oh, it's not him yet, they're saying. I always do that.

Avengers: Yes, hello, Gov. Palin.

Palin: Hello, this is Sarah, how are you?

Avengers: Fine, and you? This is Nicolas Sarkozy speaking, how are you?

Palin: Oh, it's so good to hear you. Thank you for calling us.

Avengers: Oh, it's a pleasure.

Palin: Thank you sir, we have such great respect for you, John McCain and I. We love you and thank you for taking a few minutes to talk to me.

Avengers: I follow your campaigns closely with my special American adviser Johnny Hallyday, you know? (actually a French singer likened to Cliff Richard].

Palin: Yes, good.

Avengers: Excellent. Are you confident?

Palin: Very confident and we're thankful that polls are showing that the race is tightening and...

Avengers: Well I know very well that the campaign can be exhausting. How do you feel right now, my dear?

Palin: I feel so good. I feel like we're in a marathon and at the very end of the marathon you get your second wind and you plough to the finish.

Avengers: You see, I got elected in France because I'm real and you seem to be someone who's real, as well.

Palin: Yes, yeah. Nico, we so appreciate this opportunity.

Avengers: You know I see you as a president one day, too.

Palin: Maybe in eight years.

Avengers: Well, I hope for you. You know, we have a lot in common because personally one of my favourite activities is to hunt, too.

Palin: Oh, very good. We should go hunting together.

Avengers: Exactly, we could try go hunting by helicopter like you did. I never did that.

Like we say in French, on pourrait tuer des bebe phoques, aussi ("We could kill a few baby seals, too"].

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.

Avengers: I just love killing those animals. Mmm, mmm, take away life, that is so fun.

I'd really love to go, so long as we don't bring along Vice-President Cheney.

Palin: No, I'll be a careful shot, yes.

Avengers: Yes, you know we have a lot in common also, because except from my house I can see Belgium. That's kind of less interesting than you.

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

Avengers: Some people said in the last days and I thought that was mean that you weren't experienced enough in foreign relations and you know that's completely false. That's the thing that I said to my great friend, the prime minister of Canada Stef Carse (actually a country & western singer].

Palin: Well, he's doing fine, too, and yeah, when you come into a position underestimated it gives you an opportunity to prove the pundits and the critics wrong. You work that much harder.

Avengers: I was wondering because you are so next to him, one of my good friends, the prime minister of Quebec, Mr. Richard Z. Sirois (actually a comedian], have you met him recently? Did he come to one of your rallies?

Palin: I haven't seen him at one of the rallies but it's been great working with the Canadian officials. I know as governor we have a great co-operative effort there as we work on all of our resource-development projects. You know, I look forward to working with you and getting to meet you personally and your beautiful wife.

Oh my goodness, you've added a lot of energy to your country with that beautiful family of yours.

Avengers: Thank you very much. You know my wife Carla would love to meet you, even though you know she was a bit jealous that I was supposed to speak to you today.

Palin: Well, give her a big hug for me.

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.

Palin: Oh my goodness, I didn't know that.

Avengers: Yes, in French it's called de rouge a levre sur un cochon, or if you prefer in English, Joe the's his life, Joe the Plumber.

Palin: Maybe she understands some of the unfair criticism but I bet you she is such a hard worker, too, and she realizes you just plough through that criticism.

Avengers: I just want to be sure. That phenomenon Joe the Plumber. That's not your husband, right?

Palin: That's not my husband but he's a normal American who just works hard and doesn't want government to take his money.

Avengers: Yes, yes, I understand we have the equivalent of Joe the Plumber in France. It's called Marcel, the guy with bread under his armpit.

Palin: Right, that's what it's all about, the middle class and government needing to work for them. You're a very good example for us here.

Avengers: I see a bit about NBC, even Fox News wasn't an ally as much as usual.

Palin: Yeah, that's what we're up against.

Avengers: Gov. Palin, I love the documentary they made on your life. You know Hustler's Nailin' Paylin?

Palin: Ohh, good, thank you, yes.

Avengers: That was really edgy.

Palin: Well, good.

Avengers: I really loved you and I must say something also, governor, you've been pranked by the Masked Avengers. We are two comedians from Montreal.

Palin: Ohhh, have we been pranked? And what radio station is this?

Avengers: CKOI in Montreal.

Palin: In Montreal? Tell me the radio station call letters.

Avengers: CK...hello?

Bloody unbelievable, eh, GP?

By the way, folks, what's going to happen to this big Election '08 section of the forums after tomorrow when it'll become redundant? A single 'politics' thread, perhaps?

Cheers. Neil
Hilariously unbelievable. I was on tours earlier today and eveyone knew about it on the tours. It was quite funny, and just a few days before the election!

Tomorrow will be very interesting. I find this particular election more riveting and interesting than the last British election, but that's just because we knew it'd be more of the same, but this is something else!
Hello everyone, once again I am too ignorant to actually participate in any meaningful way and am just posting unnecessarily

OMG that is hysterical and kind of sad too. I can't believe she didn't know it was a prank. I also can't believe she didn't do what every politician, CEO, etc does which would be take a message and call them back. This is done for proper screening of incoming calls and to make sure of the phone number the call is coming from. Had she had caller ID she would have known it was a prank phone call and could have avoided being made out as the dimwit she is.

Hey Neil we could use this for future elections or future Palin screwups and whatever happens with President Obama's term. Yes I'm being optimistic with Obama Wink

Um, could you guys keep your posts down to three and four letter words and sentences that don't exceed more than five words. And please limit them to paragraphs of less that twenty five words. I fear that brother Ishmael's attention span can only compare favorably to that of a Hummingbirds.

I'll drink to that. Or anything else for that matter.
My favorite part is when he refers to the documentary 'Nailin Palin' (a porn film starring a Sarah Palin look alike)
This is tragically hilarious.

I suspect that regardless of who wins the presidency we'll still be able to make good use of this forum, somehow or other.
