WASHINGTON (FMLiveWire) -- Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin was fooled by a prank call Saturday from a Canadian comedian impersonating French President Nicolas Sarkozy who told her she "would make a good president someday," and asked her if she wanted the job.
"Maybe in eight years," replied Palin, revealing her desire to replace McCain as president.
A recording of the six-minute call was released Saturday and aired Monday on a Quebec radio station.
The call was made by a well-known Montreal comedian Marc-Antoine Audette, one of the "Masked Avengers" duo who are famous for duping celebrities and heads of state with prank calls.
Audette, posing as Sarkozy, speaks in an exaggerated French accent and drops numerous hints that the conversation is a joke.
But Palin does not pick up on them.
He tells Palin one of his favorite pastimes is hunting, also enjoyed by the Alaskan governor.
"I just love killing those animals, that is so fun," the fake Sarkozy says.
He proposes they go hunting baby seals together by helicopter. An oblivious Palin said she thought that would be a good idea.
"Well, I think we could have a lot of fun together while we're getting work done," Palin counters. "We can kill two birds with one stone that way."
Palin also reassured the fake Sarkozy when he said he would not want to bring Vice President Dick Cheney on a hunting trip. Cheney shot and wounded a hunting partner in 2006.
"I'll be a careful shot," she promised.
Ridiculing Palin's much-mocked comment that she had insights into foreign policy because "you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska," the caller tells her, "You know we have a lot in common also, because from my house I can see Belgium."
When Audette refers to Canadian singer Stephen Carse as Canada's prime minister, Palin replies, "Well, he's doing fine 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."
Canada's prime minister is actually Stephen Harper.
Palin praises Sarkozy throughout the call and also mentions his wife Carla Bruni, a model-turned-songwriter.
"You know, I look forward to working with you and getting to meet you personally and your beautiful wife," Palin says. "Give her a big hug for me."
The Sarkozy impersonator tells Palin his wife is "so hot in bed" and then informs her that Bruni has written a song for her entitled "Du rouge a levres sur une cochonne," which translates as "Lipstick on a Pig."
Barack Obama had dismissed John McCain's call for change in Washington as "lipstick on a pig" after Palin made a lipstick joke at the Republican convention. The McCain-Palin campaign then released an ad saying Obama was calling Palin a pig with the remark.
The prank caller asks Palin if Joe the Plumber is her husband and states, "We have the equivalent of Joe the Plumber in France. He's called Marcel, the guy with bread under his armpit."
He also tells Palin that he loved the documentary made about her life and referred to a notorious pornographic film made with a Palin look-alike made by Hustler founder Larry Flynt.
"Oh good, thank you, yes" Palin said.
