Palin Gets Punked

The image of the humorless Canadian just got whacked apart like a piñata.

A pair of Montreal radio comedians, one of whom pretended to be Nicholas Sarkozy, managed to get Palin to believe she was speaking with the French president for nearly five minutes yesterday. Among other things, she laughs and agrees to go helicopter hunting with Sarkozy when he said he likes to kill “small animals.” Palin also gushes over Carla Bruni, Sarkozy’s model-singer wife.

When the radio comic tells her they have a lot in common because he can see Belgium from his house, Palin agrees noting the analogy between the American relationship with Russia and the French relationship with Belgium.

While I think that Palin was a foolish if not dangerous choice for VP, prank calls are quite mean. The person called tries to be polite and friendly and ends up getting screwed. I watched Michael Moore on stage in London do it to a policeman on phone duty somewhere in Ireland. It was the low point of the show.

I have no sympathy for Palin's over-reaching ambition, but this kind of thing makes me feel sorry for her.

Methinks Ms. Palin deserved it.

I feel sorry for her too. And with the world watching, this is not good.
