Washington DC, USA - It has been revealed that the controversial British TV presenter Jonathan Ross has been recruited by the Republican Party in an attempt to boost the flailing presidential campaign of US Senator John McCain.
"My agent called me and said that the US Wepublcian Party wanted me to join the pwesidential campaign of Senator John McCain. They needed expewienced people with good telephone communication skills. I had an opening in my schedule, so I thought why not? I have been assigned to the telephone polling team and been given a list of high pwofile wepublicans. My job is call them up and ensure that they vote for John McCain and Sarah Palin on Election Day."
Asked if he was enjoying his new career path, Ross replied:
"I'm in heaven! So far, I've been put thwough to 46 voicemail boxes including those of Secwetawy of State Condoleeza Wice, Defence Secwetawy Wobert M. Gates as well as the Secwetawies of Twansport and the Tweasuwey. It's gweat!"
The well known TV and radio presenter has had extensive media coverage over the last week. He and fellow radio presenter Russell Brand left lurid messages on the voicemail of Fawlty Towers actor Andrew Sachs as part of their Radio 2 programme. The prank phone calls caused a major row at the BBC which resulted in the resignation of Brand along with the Controller of Radio 2. Ross was suspended from the BBC earlier this week for 12 months for his part in the affair.
