    I can't believe she fell for this.
    Worse than that, as far as national security goes, anyone could fool this broad.
    How in the hell can anyone with half a brain vote for the McCain/ Palin ticket after this?
    The story just broke on msnbc.
    If this doesn't sink McCain, nothing will, and we're in more trouble than I thought

    Sad, but I wasn't expecting more than this from her.

    Well, as an undecided...McCain wasn't even an option. Looks like Obama or Write in. Leaning more towards Write in.

    The McCain Campaign has shown that they like to point the finger and re-direct the focus of issues away from their campaign.

    So who is everybody going to write in?
    Mickey Mouse?
    Betty Boop?
    Woody Woodpecker?

    Sadly, I was disappointed.

    Not because she got pranked... but because she handled it so poorly. I had hoped she would laugh it off and make light of the situation. Instead, she passes the phone off.

    I think the worst part was, how she went along with the conversation, not really having a clue who he was or what he stood for. It made her seem rather dumb.

    I posted about this earlier today. I'm guessing (in her partial defense) that her staff was pranked first, and that they had been convinced to expect a phone call from President Sarkozy. They had Palin nearby and ready, and I don't blame her for trusting her staff on matters like this. They were, presumably, more carefully vetted than she had been.

    But there were some serious problems she should have picked up on: besides the obviously inappropriate lines, someone who had actual foreign policy experience might have known that's not Sarkozy's voice, and he doesn't speak English. When he addressed Congress last year, he addressed them in French and used a translator.

    I'm not voting for her or Mccain but she tried her best. She might have been better at the banter with the bozo; but her staff let her down too, don't forget.

    hmmm Sexist remarks here. hmmm Bigotry exhibiting itself.

    Anybody who pulls a stunt like that is dumb as hell. That call may very well have been traced, and somebody is going to be answering for fraud and other charges. Peeps don't be playing stupid with the government. The government already has the ability to look into your yard by satelite. A man here went to protest the property valuation on a run down empty mall he owns. The appraisal board tried to claim it was operating. They immediately pulled it up by satelite on their computer. It showed two cars sitting on the property. The appraisers claimed it showed customers. The cars belonged to his security guards.

    She sounded starstruck, went along with everything he said and frankly, missed a LOT of clues that this was a gag! UUUGGHH! I almost choked on my "Freedom Fries"!:wink:
    (I thought Republicans hated France anyway? Why are they trying to kiss up now? OHHH that old "any port in a storm thing" - sorry)

    Doesn't need to be traced: It came from CKOI-FM in Montreal, and the callers identified themselves. I'm not sure that this is any more 'fraud' than, say, Candid Camera or any of its imitators.

    That's what Sarah Palin gets for agreeing to speak to them without any preconditions. :wink:

    The call came from CKY - Montreal. A Canadian radio station! Unless you're prepared for ANOTHER international incident - cool it Hootie!

    Personally - I'd be ALL FOR invading Canada if our military wasn't tied up in two other stupid wars in Iraq and Afghanistan! They have delicious candy like CoffeeCrisp, Smarties (BETTER than M&M's!) and of course MacIntosh's Toffee. You can also get vinegar with your fries up there instead on just ketchup...

    Your reply is stupid. I was making a general statement as a warning. I work for the government, and we are constantly used to locate people all over the country.

    If that's all it takes...the next call in line would be from Osama Bin Laden....

    Palin Staff: "hello?"
    Radio douchebags: "YES YES Mr. Osama Bin Laden wishes to surrender himself to the maverick McClain - we loved those DieHard movies by the way - and Governor Moose Shooter Palin!"

    Palin Staff: "....ok..."
    Radio Douchebags: "All mighty ALLAH requires is that she shows her tits and Osama will thrust his sword of surrender between the mountains of American Justice - over and over again, if need be"

    Palin Staff: "but he'll surrender right? That would really help us out because we're sucking wind here and W hasn't done sh*t in 8 YEARS!"

    Radio Douchebags: "Oh yes....eventually you will see the drippy white trail of muslim disgrace COVERING your mountains of American Justice - you can SKI down it to victory in your crazy free election process."

    Palin Staff: "But then Osama will surrender right?"

    Radio Douchebags: HAHAHAHHA!!! (click!)

    You know, so many of you make light of it but most of you don't have a clue as to how widely you are watched. The current congress giving the executive branch such sweeping powers to spy on us is beyond what I can ever logically reason out. Not a day goes by that I am not asked by the government for someone's location.

A bunch of little nerds like you peeking into everyones lives in the name of "security?" Find a new job man - you'll need one soon...
