A couple of Canadian comedians radio DJs managed to make a prank call to Alaskan Governor and Republican candidate John McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin. Listen as Palin is taken on a ride throughout an obviously ridiculous conversation without once suspecting the phone caller’s legitamacy. A bit too naive shall we say? You be the judge.

A full transcript is available on Daily Kos for those of you who can’t bring yourselves to listen to the whole thing, which is impossible to do without palms on face. Here’s a portion of it: (FNS is fake Nicholas Sarkozy and SP is Sarah Palin)
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.
FNS: I seen a bit about NBC even Fox News wasn’t an ally, an ally, sorry, about as much as usual.
SP: Yeah that’s what we’re up against.
FNS: I must say, Governor Palin, I love the documentary they made on your life, you know, Hustler’s “Nailin Palin.”
SP: Oh, good, thank you. Yes.
FNS: That was really edgy.
SP: [Laughs] Well good.
