This is serious business. Anyone that thought this prank was funny is un-patriotic and anti-American. You should be ashamed of yourselves, and if you're not, well, in the name of everything Holy and Decent, plenty of posters here on ATS will be quick to tell you what a bad and despicable person you are. WE SHOULD THROW YOU IN GUANTANAMO WITH THE TERR'RISTS!

Ahem.

I'd recommend to the insulted that they at least consider lightening up, but obviously that would fall on deaf and dumb ears.

And the affiliation between Obama and the Montreal radio terror network is alarming. I can drive fifteen minutes and look at Canada. So I know what those people are capable of.

Stop laughing. You, you...you socialist...

...or should I say "sore loser?"

Those crazy Quebec Canadians.

www.huffingtonpost.com...

Scroll down to play the call.

a little sample:

"FNS: 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.
SP: Oh my goodness! I didn’t know that.

FNS: Yes, in French, it’s called Du rouge à lèvres sur un cochonne [Translate: Lipstick for a sow] or if you prefer in English Joe the Plumber, [sings] It’s his life, Joe the Plumber..."
SP: 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.

FNS: I just want to be sure, I don’t’ quite understand the phenomenon "Joe the Plumber," that’s not your husband, right?
SP: Mmhmm, that’s not my husband but he’s a normal American who just works hard and doesn’t want government to take his money.

FNS: 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, oui."
SP: Right. That’s what it’s all about, is the middle class, and government needing to work for them. You’re a very good example for us here."

Just sad.

All ridicule, I mean kidding aside, it is quite sad.

Quite sad that such a clearly under-qualified and uneducated woman, chosen more for sex appeal than for any possible strategic benefit [unless the strategy is to drive the intelligence of Americans underground...oh...wait a minute...never mind], would be a standard-bearer of sorts for a large swath of the US population.

And just wait 'til 2012, my fellow Americans. The suburban mom takes on the black guy. It's going to piss a LOT of people off. "Mission Accomplished"

In the Governor's defense, I am totally sure that she is a good Christian lady who loves America and hates the terr'rists and Muslims.

I find myself hoping you're right.

Prank or not, I'm left feeling a little sickened that a US Vice Presidential candidate would gush and fawn all over a foreign politician like a schoolgirl. That's just wrong.

Think again, this has been reported on the major media as well. Check it out..

Since Palin has responded to the call with a brief comment, it means it was her, she never denied it.

XD.

Palin couldn't figure out that it wasn't Sarkozy?

Man, another day I saw a video of Giuliani's son prank calling him as Schwarzenegger. Giuliani hung up on the 2nd sentence or something.

I'm all for a good prank call but this one was just stupid. The least they could have done was make it funny.

You're forgetting that these are French-Canadians that we're talking about here.

That was so funny. Even after he said he could see Belgium from his butt and that he enjoyed watching her biography "Nailin Pailin" she still did not even have a clue. Priceless.

She is trying to do her best. Anyone could have been pranked like that... Who is the leader of the Nauru right now? What if that leader supposedly called you? You don't have time to fact check so what would you do? Hang up? And then take the critism for being an elitist?

Personally I am not voting for her, and to be truthfull she scares me. But there's two sides to every story and we must "Deny Ignorance".

And by the way... Nauru???

8.5 square miles - The 13,000 residents of the Pacific island Nauru rely on diminishing phosphate deposits. The state became independent in 1968 and was formerly known as Pleasant Island.

Suppose I jokingly call up the white house, impersonating Putin? would that be different?




The difference is that you would not even get past the screener. And I think they would have Putin's voice print on file to compare you to.

That is an interesting piece of information. I had to look up Nauru:

en.wikipedia.org...
www.un.int...
news.bbc.co.uk...

Pretty cool looking place. Phone number country code 647, Internet country suffix ".nr"

www.google.nr...

I doubt Sarah Palin would have taken the call if Marcus Stephen, President and Chief of State of Nauru, had called. I probably wouldn't.

I notice the country doesn't even have a home page on the internet.

Classic!

I wanted so bad for the Republicans to come thru the Bush era and somehow retool an image, bring some of that old school, true conservatism back to the party. It's a sad time for some of us.
The fact that she is talking about "continuing a leadership role" after the election befuddles me.

She must not even be listening to what he's saying! What's the deal? Has she no alarm bells?

Oh, I know...she KNEW it was a prank, and was "Keepin' him on the line long enuffta'...trace 'em, and... ID 'em, so we can go bust 'em, and get true justice for the American people, Like Joe the Plumber, all under the umbrella of job creation"

Thaaaat's it......mmmmkay

I thought it was kind of funny to say the least. In fact I think Gov. Palin shouldn't be taking herself so seriously, what with the elections coming up and all, a little humor here and there is harmless

Although impersonating a foreign official, while funny, might have been a little too much.


Take a step back, realize it was a joke and I seriously doubt there was any thoughts of making this a mean spirited joke. Hell if I was running for VP and someone pranked called me I'd laugh and tell my friends about it all day.


Guess that's why I'm not a politician...leave that to my mom and every politician out there.

Moderators - What is the point of leaving this thread up? Do we really want to be associated with the KOS crowd.
