Betsy: This is Betsy. Masked Avenger: Hello Betsy. Betsy: Hi. Masked Avenger: Hi, this is uh, Frank l'ouvrier [Frank the Worker], uh, I'm with, uh, President Sarkozy, on the line for, uh Governor Palin. Betsy: Yes, one second please. Can you hold on one second please? Masked Avenger: Yeah, no problem. Betsy: All right, thanks. Hi, I'm going to hand the phone over to her. Masked Avenger: Okay, thank you very much. I'm going to put the president on the line. Betsy to Palin: Okay, he's coming to the line. Palin: This is Sarah. Masked Avenger: Uh, yeah. Governor Palin? Palin: Hellooo! Masked Avenger: Just, just hold on for President Sarkozy for one moment. Palin to Betsy: Oh, it's not him yet Betsy. I always do that. Masked Avenger: Yes, yes, hello, Governor Palin? Palin to Betsy: I'll just have people hand it to me right when it's them. Sarkozy: Yes, hello, Mrs. Governor? Palin: Hello, this is Sarah. How are you? Masked Avenger: Fine, and you? This is, uh, Nicolas Sarkozy speaking. How are you? Palin: Oh, so good. It's so good to hear you. Thank you for calling us. Masked Avenger: Oh, it's a pleasure. Palin: Thank you sir. We have such great respect for you, John McCain and I. We love you. And thank you for spending a few minutes to talk to... me. Masked Avenger: I followed your campaigns closely with my special American advisor Johnny Hallyday (famous French singer), you know? Palin: Yes, good. Masked Avenger: Excellent. Are, are you confident? Palin: Very confident and we're thankful the polls are showing that the race is tightening, and... Masked Avenger: Well, I know very well that the campaign can be exhausting. How do you feel right now my dear? Palin: I feel so good. I feel like we are in, uh, a marathon, and at the very end of the marathon you get your second wind, and you plow through the finish line... Masked Avenger: Say, I got elected in France because I'm real, and you seem to be someone who's real as well. Palin: Yes, yeah. Nicolas, we so appreciate this opportunity... Masked Avenger: You know, I see you as a president. One day, you too. Palin: [Giggles] Maybe in eight years. Masked Avenger: Well, I uh, hope for you. You know, we have a lot in common, because personally one of my favorite activities is to hunt, too. Palin: Oh! Very good. We should go hunting together. Masked Avenger: Exactly. We could go try hunting by helicopter like uh, you did. I never did that. [Palin giggles]. Like we say in France "on pourrait tuer des bébés phoques aussi" [Translation: We could also kill some baby seals.] Palin: Well, I think we could have a lot of fun together as we're gettin' work done. We can, we can kill two birds with one stone that way. Masked Avenger: I just love killing those animals. Mm, mm. Take away a life - that is so fun! [Palin laughs] I'd really love to go, as long as we don't bring Vice President Cheney [Masked Avenger laughs]. Palin: No, I'll be a careful shot. Yes. Masked Avenger: Yes. You know, we have a lot in common also because, except that from my house I can see Belgium. That's kind of less interesting than you. Palin: Well, see, we're right next door to other countries that we all need to be working with, yes. Masked Avenger: Some people said in the last days, and I uh, thought that was mean, that you weren't experienced enough in foreign relations. And you know, that's completely false. That's the, uh, thing I said to my great friend, the Prime Minister of Canada, Stef Carse. [Stephen Harper is the PM and Stef Carse is famous Canadian singer]. Palin: Well, he's doin' fine too. And yeah, when you come into a position underestimated it gives you an opportunity to prove the pundits and the critics wrong. You work that much harder — Masked Avenger: I, I was wondering, because you are also next to him, one of my good friends also, the Prime Minister of Quebec, Mr. Richard Z. Sirois [a famous Quebec radio host], have you met him, um, recently? Uh, did he come to one of your rallies? Palin: Uh, I haven't seen him at one of the rallies, but it's been great working with the Canadian officials in my role as governor. We have a great cooperative, uh, effort there, as we work on all of our resource development projects. You know I look forward to working with you and getting to meet you personally, and your beautiful wife. Oh my goodness! You added a lot of energy to your country, then, with um, with that beautiful family of yours. Masked Avenger: Thank you very much. You know my wife Carla would love to meet you. Uh, you know, even though she was a bit jealous that I was supposed to speak to you today [Masked Avenger laughs]. Palin: [Laughs] Well give her a big hug for me. Masked Avenger: You know my wife is a popular singer and a former hot top model. And she's so hot in bed. She even wrote a song for you. Palin: Oh my goodness! I didn't know that. Masked Avenger: Yes, in French it's called "
