Sarah Palin gets pranked by Canadian comedians.

This is both funny and scary as hell:

The Canadian Press: Quebec comedy duo talks porn and politics with oblivious Sarah Palin

MONTREAL — In an over-the-top accent, one half of a notorious Quebec comedy duo claims to be the president of France as he describes sex with his famous wife, the joy of killing animals and Hustler magazine’s latest Sarah Palin porno spoof.

At the other end of the line? An oblivious Sarah Palin.

The Masked Avengers, a radio pairing notorious for prank calls to celebrities and heads of state, notched its latest victory Saturday when it released a recording of a six-minute call with Palin, who thought she was talking with Nicolas Sarkozy.

Throughout the call, which was making the rounds in U.S. political circles by day’s end Saturday, Palin and the pranksters discuss politics, pundits, and the perils of going hunting with Vice-President Dick Cheney.

“We have such great respect for you, John McCain and I, we love you,” Palin gushes, evidently unaware she’s speaking to an infamous Quebec comedian named Marc-Antoine Audette.

At one point, Palin even comes close to confirming her intention to one day run for president, when Audette slyly remarks he can see her taking over the big desk in the Oval office.

“Maybe in eight years,” she replies with a nervous chuckle.

Over the course of the interview, Palin doesn’t seem to realize she’s being tricked until Audette comes clean near the end of the call.

“Ohhhh . . . have we been pranked?” she says, in her inimitable style. Seconds later, Palin’s aide can be heard taking the phone before the line goes dead.

The thing is there are all sorts of clues dropped during the call that should have been huge red flags that this wasn’t real. You can listen to it yourself here:

Asked for their response, a representative of the Obama campaign said: “I’m glad we check out our calls before we hand the phone to Barack Obama.”

  1. I’ll give Palin a bit of a pass on this, because even with the “clean” version from the pranksters side of the phone, it’s hard to understand the prankster, throw in having to hear it at the other end of the line and I’m betting Palin didn’t understand 1/3 of what the guy said, which seems to be the case since it seemed like she gave him a verbal “smile and nod” a lot of the time.

    Though I could be wrong since I listened to it while at work so I wasn’t focused on it 100%.

  2. It is incredible that this video is real. Saturday Night Live, the Daily Show and Bill Maher combined would probably never be able to make her look as stupid as she comes off in that video. I remember during the primaries Mitt Romney’s own son did something to this effect using sound bites from Arnold Schwarzenegger. Romney didn’t look great either, but he caught on much sooner than Palin did; it took more than five minutes, and the prank caller had to be the one to let her know what was going on, who knows how long it would have taken her to realize it was a prank.

    Potentially the oldest president in history, with a history of skin cancer, has her as his VP pick. Is voting for McCain even an option?

  3. It’s hard to not feel a bit embarrassed for Palin for having swallowed the prank so enthusiastically, and if it had really been Sarkozy on the line, her responses would not have seemed unreasonable.  And she took it in good humor; not until the aide intervened did she become curt and hang up.

    On the other hand, the possibility of Sarah Palin as President, or even Veep, scares the bejeezus out of me, so my sympathy for her having been had is a bit strained.

  4. Oh, so Mr. nObama isn’t man enough to answer the phones himself?

    He gets more calls than you, Moloch. Hard to believe, but true.

  5. Odd…  It almost sounded like Palin said “Did we get pranked AGAIN?”

    or maybe she said “and” but that doesn’t make much sense….
