In the days leading up to the election, tension is high, stress everywhere, diverse contradictions and of course tons of fans cheering on their favorite candidate. But as always, where you find the happy enigmatic cheers for one, you’ll come across just as many critics trying to humiliate them. The U.S. presidential election is even more vibrant and exciting this year as the race is between the controversial opportunity that either way, some thing will and must change.
A couple of critics of the possible vice president, the governor of Alaska – Sarah Palin, come from Montreal, Canada. They spent time coming up with prank material and then fighting to get in touch with Sarah Palin on the phone to show off their jokes, all of which happened to be aired on a public radio station in Montreal.
One person who uploaded this video, wrote in the margin:
Sarkozy: Yes, hello, Governor Palin. Yes hello, Mrs Governor?
Palin: Hello, this is Sarah, how are you?
S: Fine, and you? This is Nicolas Sarkozy speaking, how are you?
P: Oooooh, it’s so good, its so good to hear you. Thank you for calling us.
S: Oh, it’s a pleasure.
P: 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.
S: I follow your campaigns closely with my special American adviser Johnny Hallyday (NOTE: Hallyday is a French singer and actor), you know?
P: Yes! Good.
S: You see, I got elected in France because I’m real and you seem to be someone who’s real as well.
P: Yes. Yeah. Nicolas, we so appreciate this opportunity
S: You know I see you as a president one day, you too.
P: (Giggle) Maybe in eight years! (Giggle)
S: Well, I hope for you. You know, we have a lot in common because personally one of my favourite activities is to hunt, too.
P: Oh, very good! We should go hunting together!
S: Exactly, we could go try 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 all the baby seals).
P: Well, I think we could have a lot of fun together, as we’re getting work done. We can kill two birds with one stone that way.
S: I just love killing those animals. Mmm, mmm, take away life, that is so fun!
S: I’d really love to go, so long as we don’t bring Vice President Cheney.
P: Noooo, I’ll be a careful shot, yes.
S: Yes, you know we have a lot in common also, because except that from my house I can see Belgium. That’s kind of less interesting than you.
P: Well, see, we’re right next door to different countries that we all need to be working with, yes.
S: 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 I said to my great friend, the prime minister of Canada, Stef Carse (NOTE: Stef Carse is a Canadian singer).
P: Well, he’s doing fine, too, and yeah, when you come into a position underestimated it gives you an opportunity to prove the pundints (NOTE: she calls pundits pundints) and the critics wrong. You work that much harder.
S: I was wondering because you are so next to him, one of my good friends, the prime minister of Quebec, Mr Richard Z Sirois (NOTE: hes a Canadian comedian), have you met him recently? Did he come to one of your rallies?
P: I haven’t seen him at one of the rallies but it’s been great working with the Canadian officials in my role 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, ha, beautiful family of yours.
S: 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.
P: (Giggle) Well, give her a big hug for me.
S: You know my wife is a popular singer and a former hot top model and she’s so hot in bed. She even wrote a song for you.
P: Oh my goodness! I didn’t know that!
S: Yes, in French it’s called Le Rouge A Levres Sur Un Cochon (NOTE: it means Lipstick on a Pig), 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 plough through that criticism.
S: I just want to be sure. I dont quite understand the 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.
S: 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.
P: Right, that’s what it’s all about, its the middle class and government needing to work for them. You’re a very good example for us here.
S: I must say Governor Palin, I love the documentary they made on your life. You know, Hustler’s Nailin’ Palin?
P: Ohh, good, thank you! Yes.
S: That was really edgy.
P: (Giggle) Well, good. …”
