MONTREAL â€” A Quebec comedy duo notorious for pulling prank calls on celebrities have struck again. This time, comedian Marc Antoine Audette and Sebastian Trudel Audette, known as the Masked Avengers, tricked Republican Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin into believing that she was speaking to French President Nicolas Sarkozy. The duo kept Palin on the line for several minutes and discussed politics and hunting, even making a jab at the current Vice-President's infamous 2006 incident where he shot a friend in the face. Throughout the interview Audette drops hints that he's not who he claims to be. He names popular French singer Johnny Hallyday as his advisor on U.S. affairs and Quebec singer Stef Carse was named as Canada's Prime Minister. "We have such great respect for you [Sarkozy], John and I," she gushed. Later in the interview, Audette, jokes that he and Palin shared an interest in common, hunting. "We should try hunting by helicopter like you did, I never did that," Audette said. "We could have a lot of fun together while we're getting work done. Kill two birds with one stone," Palin replied. Palin also went on to praise Sarkozy and his wife Carla Bruni. "I look forward to working with you and getting to meet you personally, and your beautiful wife, oh my goodness," she says. "You've added a lot of energy to your country with that beautiful family of yours." Audette responded by joking that Sarkozy's wife, singer and model Carla Bruni, wrote a song about her. When Audette said that he saw Palin as President one day, Palin's response was a diplomatic, "maybe in eight years." At the end of the interview, Audette tips his hand and tells Palin that the call is a hoax. "Oh, have we been pranked," Palin says as she hands the phone to an aide who quickly ended the call. The call will be airing on Montreal radio station CKOI on Monday, the day before Americans go to the polls. The Palin campaign has also responded to the prank (from Politico): "Gov. Palin was mildly amused to learn that she had joined the ranks of heads of state, including President Sarkozy, and other celebrities in being targeted by these pranksters. C'est la vie."

Full Video of the Third and Final 2008 Presidential Debate with Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain.Hempstead, NYHofstra UniversityModerator:Bob SchiefferCBS News
With no major gaffes, stumbles or snafus made by Sen. Barack Obama or Sen. John McCain during the second presidential debate, neither candidate won hands down.There were no fireworks, no major water cooler moments. Even though the debaters traded testy jabs over the economy, the Drudge Report went so far as to label the debate "boring." At first glance, it might seem this duel was a draw.Nevertheless, there is a growing consensus among the pundits that McCain lost the debate, not because of what he did but because of what he didn't do: He didn't create the game-changing moment his campaign needed to alter the trajectory of the race.With McCain lagging in the polls, Politico's Alexander Burns sums up why Obama gets the "W" next to his name:Obama didn't deliver a knockout punch tonight. But he denied his opponent the chance to rescramble the campaign, and that was enough. The day goes to him.The Associated Press, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post all concur, in their own way. This snoozefest created a winner because no one won at all.There were a few in the media who focused more on the apparent tie. Mark Halperin at Time gave McCain a B and Obama a B+. Of McCain, he wrote:The Republican nominee was by turns aggressive, sensitive, conservative and conversational. Successfully presented a negative case against Obama with an upbeat, optimistic smile.Ultimately though, Halperin echoed the general consensus:[Obama] played it typically cautious and safe, and thus avoided major blunders, knowing if he commits no errors for the next 30 days, he will be the next president of the United States.Even if you don't put much stock in the talking heads, consider what non-media types said. Each candidate stood his ground, looking comfortable in the town-hall setting, yet the insta-polls showed the same opinion: Obama won. In the CBS poll, 40 percent of uncommitted voters said Obama won. Twenty-six percent said John McCain won, while 34 percent said it was a tie.Over at CNN, Obama fared even better in the poll: 54 percent said he did a better job, 30 percent gave it to McCain.Despite those numbers, this isn't all bad news for McCain. The CBS poll did have a silver lining -- respondents still see McCain as more prepared for the job (83 percent to 58 percent).The other good news for the Arizona senator: there is about a month left in the campaign. That's enough time for him to find the game-changer he is looking for. (from yahoo.com)

House Republicans on Monday blamed a partisan speech from Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the failure of a massive Wall Street bailout measure. â€œI do believe that we could have gotten there today had it not been for this partisan speech that the speaker gave on the floor of the House,â€ House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said, adding that Pelosi â€œpoisonedâ€ the GOP conference.Deputy Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) held up a copy of Pelosiâ€™s floor speech at a press conference and said she had â€œfailed to listen and to leadâ€ on the issue.The Speaker had blasted the Bush administration in her speech and Minority Whip Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) asserted that some GOP lawmakers, who had reluctantly agreed to support the bill, might have changed their minds following Pelosiâ€™s remarks.Pelosi had said that the $700 billion price tag of the measure â€œis a number that is staggering, but tells us only the costs of the Bush Administrationâ€™s failed economic policies â€” policies built on budgetary recklessness, on an anything goes mentality, with no regulation, no supervision, and no discipline in the system.â€Democrats noted that a majority of Republicans had opposed the bill, while a majority of Democrats supported it.
During Morgan State's 21-7 win over Winston-Salem State, the Bears' Baptiste made one of the greatest pass catches ever caught on tape.With the Bears' offense backed up into its own end zone, quarterback Carlton Jackson tosses the ball down the middle of the field. Baptiste leaps, extends one arm and manages to tuck the ball to his chest before landing on his back and doing a flip before coming to rest near the 38-yard line.For the whole story, go to www.myfoxwghp.com.

David Blaine lives to pretend to almost kill himself another day.The 35-year-old illusionist/stuntmeister/attention-junkie has survived his latest feat of fortitude, a 44-foot "jump" after hanging 50 feet above the skating rink in New York City's Central Park, upside down, for 60 hours.The mystery, supposedly, was whether Blaine's head would pop off, his lungs would explode or some other dastardly fate would befall him (pardon the pun) after spending all that time inverted, which in and of itself could cause breathing trouble, blindness, a stroke and a host of other organ difficulties, according to a vascular surgeon at the scene.But not only did Blaine look pretty damn good, albeit a little bleary eyed, once he was turned upright, he evaded sharp scrutiny altogether. When it came time to "dive," he sort of fluttered down to Earth before the hoister of his harness whisked him away. Mystifyingly into the ether, he'd have us believe.The dishy magician was inevitably a little worse for wear after going since Monday morning without sleep, food or a proper place to peeâ€”and, according to the host of the two-hour ABC special David Blaine: Dive of Death (what, you thought Blaine was doing this for his own amusement?), the magician's eyes started to swell shut by hour four."What was really quite remarkable was that his eyes, in the first hour or two, were incredibly swollen and red, and as the time went on, his eyes returned to normal," Blaine's personal physician, Dr. Ronald Ruden said upon observing how practically normal his patient looked."His ability to adapt is really almost superhuman."
