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 didnt see any Palin's around here either. I did see a few kids dressed as Obama though! It was pretty funny!

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.

It was funny, but if the Sarkozy said some crazy stuff to me, I'd probably just smile and nod, too. I don't think it is evidence of her incompetence. There's plenty of it, but this is not an example.

Oh, also, another thing--my bf (who some might call an elitist, but he is highly educated and from a smaller town--AKA where "real" Americans live) mentioned that he can't stand elitism, and also cannot stand the "folksy" elitism that also exists--e.g., "We're from smaller towns, with better people who aren't crackheads, and somehow have different wants for our families since we have morals, and therefore we know what is best for you". Just saying--"elitism" or whatever you want to call it exists in different forms.
em1282 em1282 8 years
Sheesh. Chill on the "elitist" comments. :oy: We're all elitists in our own little way, and whatever, I'm already a "fake" American who lives in a big city, so I might as well be an elitist as well. :oy: Oh, and some people can think for themselves, too. We don't just go voting for handsome men all willy-nilly. I too wonder what her staff is doing--can't believe there aren't more people checking to see who is legit. And hell yeah, if it were Obama or Biden being "Punk'd" it would still be funny as me, at least. Or maybe I'm just an elitist zombie who thinks everything is funny because I have no brain, right?

I'd have to disagree. I'll just say that it depends on what party affiliation you have as to what you think of Obama. IMO, Obama has done a lot to convince people it is "his" time, but he doesn't do a lot of explaining on his policies. For example, we are in a recession, yet he wants to spend more money than every before. Where is he going to get that money? The answer is taxes. Now, which group of people hires others? The answer is the group who are small business owners who make over 250k. So if you tax the people who hire, they can't hire as many people. Doesn't that slow down the ecconomy?

i will admit i was skeptical of Obama i was a Hilary supporter, but this man has brought so much unity amongst different people its unbelievable, he is what America stands for i sincerely mean that, you know by looking at his interviews or after rallies and speeches that he is for the people, not just to get a vote i have not seen this at all in Palin or McCain its more of a chore

But which election do you think was hijacked? Since I don't believe either election was hijacked or stolen, I'm curious to how you get that reasoning?
