I put this in a button script:
on mouseUp
   put any item of "random,Silly,Phrase" into field 1
end mouseUp

And this in the cardscript:
on keydown theKey
   if theKey is "`" then
      send "mouseup" to button 1
      pass KeyDown
   end if
end keydown

It works for me, so not sure whats up on your end.
