The story about Sarah Palin being duped by the Quebec comedians, The Masked Avengers, is old news. It's worth looking at again, though, because it reveals just what a lightweight Ms. Palin really is.
Her responses to Marc-Antoine Audette reveal her to have the mentality of a high school cheerleader.
She thought she was talking to Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France.
Item: "We have such great respect for you, John McCain and I, we love you," Palin "gushed." "We love you"? This is not the way leaders of countries talk to one another, unless, of course, they're involved in an three-way affair!
Item: In response to a remark by Audette that she might end up in the Oval Office, Palin said, "Maybe in eight years," chuckling nervously. That, too, is not something a world leader would confess over the phone to a peer.
Item: When Audette refers to Johnny Hallyday, a French singer/actor as his special adviser to the U.S., and singer Stef Carse as Canada's prime minister, and the comedian, Richard Z. Sirois as the provincial premier, Palin has no clue. She is totally oblivious. Evidently, she does not know the name of the Canadian prime minister!
Item: Audette tells Palin he loves killing animals. Palin suggests, "We should go hunting together. We can have a lot of fun together while we're getting work done. We could kill two birds with one stone.
Item: Palin consistently fawns over who she thinks is Sarkozy. "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 beautiful family of yours." Spoken like a cheerleader!
Item: Audette then tells Palin that his [Sarkozy's] wife, Bruni, is "hot in bed" and has written a song for Palin, the title of which is [translated into English] "Lipstick on a Pig." Audette says the song is about Joe the Plumber. Palin remains clueless.
Item: At the end of the call, Audette refers to the Hustler porn video, "Nailin' Paylin," and says it is "the documentary they made on your life." Palin says, "Oh, good, thank you, yes."
Perhaps Audette summed the whole thing up later, when he said: "You can see that she's, well, not really brilliant."
I'd say if a bulb burned any dimmer, there would be no light at all.
