Decisions

Posted by Jer / November 4, 2008


Here's a little election day humour for you (other than the fact that it seems like most of our nation cares more about today's American election than our own). The above video, a prank call by a pair of local comedians known as Les Justiciers Masqués, made its way around the blogosphere on the weekend and was picked up by most mainstream outlets yesterday.

While it's hardly news now, I wanted to post it in conjunction with a couple other Palin videos.

The bits below are equally funny, but in a much more frightening way. They weren't the result of phony phone calls. They were on high profile, pre-planned, mass-mediated interviews. Sure, the Justiciés Masqués stunt is funny, and Palin says some weird things. But the comedians are so busy trying to egg her on, they don't get to mine anywhere near the comedic gold that Katie Couric managed to get out of her.

Humour is in the eye of the beholder. So while America, along with plenty of other concerned countries around the world waits, I'll leave it to you to decide whether or not to laugh at these clips, or worry about what the next four years could hold.

Needless to say, if you can vote, do.

Ah that Palin, she cracks me up.
What a joke, that woman!

Moi je trouve particulièrement drôle que deux québécois aient eus un aussi grand poid sur la dégringole de Palin!
