MONTREAL â€” A Quebec comedy duo notorious for prank calls to celebrities and heads of state has reached Sarah Palin, convincing the Republican vice-presidential nominee she was speaking with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
From The Telegraph:
In a six-minute call with Marc-Antoine Audette, part of a comedy duo notorious for prank calls to celebrities and heads of state, Mrs Palin said that “maybe in eight years” she will be president.
Campaign aides offered no explanation of how the hoax call was accepted with a spokesman simply said: “C’est la vie.”
Though Mrs Palin did not drop a real clanger, there were several clues that her caller might be bogus.
Playing off Mr Palin’s much-mocked comment in an early television interview that she had insights into foreign policy because “you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska,” the caller tells her: “You know we have a lot in common also, because except from my house I can see Belgium.”
She replies: “Well, see, we’re right next door to different countries that we all need to be working with, yes.”
