First, a great prank call on Mrs. Sarah Palin, who was in Raleigh this weekend.
From Boing Boing:
The popular Montreal comedy duo Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel, aka "The Masked Avengers" ( Les Justiciers Masqués ) are notorious for prank-calling heads of state and celebrities who take themselves a little too seriously. Surely none take themselves so seriously as Sarah Palin. She was pranked by the pair today when they social-hacked their way past security and convinced her she was speaking to Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France.
Oh those crazy Canadians...
Now a couple of fun things from the local News and Observer. I loved this opening line from an article called "Parties marshal troops for E-day" about presidential campaign volunteers in N.C.
At their national convention, Republicans scoffed at an early line on Barack Obama's resume.Oh, buuuurrnn. Then they also had a great article about the Cary High School alumni band that marched in the Cary Band Day parade this weekend. I wanted to go, Halloween and a busy Saturday kept me from joining. I love that all those alumni came out and marched again. Maybe next year...
"He worked as a community organizer," former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani told the crowd, to rising laughter. "What?"
Now the GOP is discovering the value of that experience. In the closing hours of a national election, Republican nominee John McCain faces an Obama get-out-the-vote push that is exceptionally well organized at the community level. The Democrat's campaign is culminating in an enormous door-by-door effort. North Carolina is one of its key targets.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
