I knew this Palin prank was going to be devastating. But I could never have imagined how humungous it was going to be.
It's gone global. It's exploding on the inter tubes. It's the story EVERYONE is talking and laughing about.
For many Americans it's the last straw.
This does it. This is the last straw. If there were still a scintilla of a possibility that Sarah Palin is qualified to be Vice-President or, should the need arise, President of the United States, it’s now vanished.
Others have been comparing its impact to the Kathy Couric interview.
Sarah Palin got punked by the Canadian comedy duo known as the Les Justiciers Masques (the Masked Avengers) and, given the way the McCain campaign has controlled access to Palin, the prank feels like just plain good journalism -- almost as good as the real thing delivered by Katie Couric last month.
And then there are the comments:
Canada, this was PRICELESS...thank you....God bless you all !!! Let the real vetting continue.
I love Canada.
I welcome our new Canadian overlords.
OMG. We haven't been recognized like that FOREVER. What an unexpected boost to our low self esteem. I can't quite believe it. Despite having voted in a third-rate neocon government at a time of economic crisis, the whole grateful world thinks we're BRILLIANT !!!
So let's not blow it now. Eh?
They MUST not know we are not worthy. I'm counting on you English Canada....especially you Alberta.
When they call up to congratulate us, and start asking embarrassing questions.
Tell them we're ALL Québécois....
