Sarah Palin Gets Pranked! Chats With Faux President Sarkozy

Yesterday Sarah Palin happily took a call from French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Only problem: two Canadian comedians merely pretending to be the French president were on the line. Despite the tres bad French accent, the Alaska governor carried on the conversation about how Sarkozy could see Belgium from his house. And it got even better — Palin listened politely as the man she thought was the French president discussed his love for the pornography starring Palin's look-a-like. Oh la la.

Palin even chatted policy, saying Sarkozy's help for the French middle class was a great example. Perhaps she's not as afraid of socialists as she lets on.

Don't worry — she isn't the first leader the duo has embarrassed. She now joins Jacques Chirac and Nicolas Sarkozy as victims of the same comedians. Keeping her good humor, Palin's camp released a statement following the prank: "C'est la vie." Take a listen, and then let GiggleSugar know if the joke was funny, or too mean.

I saw no Palins, Obamas or McCains. I did however see a Nixon, A Lincoln and a zombie reagan.

I'm not a Palin fan, but I thought this was a bit much. There were moments when I cracked a smile, but given her experience, I don't blame her for responding the way she did (with a lot of nervous laughter). I appreciate that she realizes all the criticism/backlash she has faced/continues ot face and brushes it aside and moves on forward. btw, I was surprised I didn't see any Sarah Palins Fri night! I think everyone expected everyone else to dress up and no one actually did :) ha!

Spin it however you want it, but Palin is about 4 crayons short of a whole box. I would accept this level of intelligence from someone working at McDonalds, not gearing up to help run a country.I really wish I could vote in the USA, but I am Canadian. We definitely do not want to see a George Bush wannabe come into power, we already have one of our own running our country.

Well, her being "polite" made her look like a fool. If she had asked for clarification, she would have looked a hell of a lot marter and more respected. I think it's actually rude to just giggle and go along with what people say because you can't understand their (blatantly fake) accent.

I dont think it was funny, and i have a healthy sense of humor. She was trying to be polite, and they took advantage of her good nature. Prank calling is so middle school and immature(and anyone who thinks its funny is on that ticket). and if it was Obama or Biden I would be saying the same thing.

This just begs the question....who is running this campaign? That they don't verify identities of callers etc? That assistant was probably fired and rightfully so. Also, I am an Obama supporter and I don't think it's funny. These pranksters don't realize that the more you dog someone, the more people are going to rally for them. The endless making fun of Sarah Palin has gotten so tiresome.

I thought this prank was hilarious - but then again, I'm a liberal, left elitist and proud of it too, so ... there you go.

Ugh, ending on a preposition just looks so wrong! (Grammar elitist.)

UnDave, actually I WOULD laugh at this, had it happened to the Democratic politicians. I think taking anyone too seriously to the point of being unable to laugh at it sets a dangerous precedent. If you aren't amused by it, its your right, but the reality is, it was funny and if they didn't want it to happen, perhaps next time they should be more careful about whom they hand the phone to....

TS, I agree. More of the incompetence of whomever is on her staff, although these guys have to be *really* good to have gotten through to so many people.
