Palin Takes Prank Call From Fake French President

Sarah Palin unwittingly took a prank call Saturday from a Canadian comedian posing as French President Nicolas Sarkozy. That's understandable, I don't think I'd recognize Sarkozy's voice if he called me. During the call, "Sarkozy" told her she would make a good president someday ... which should have been her first sign that the call was a prank.

Of course, Palin has claimed extensive experience as a Russia and Canada specialist, given her proximity to those countries. Thankfully, she was able to flex her foreign policy knowledge of Canada. During the call, the prankster refers to Canadian singer Steph Carse as Canada's prime minister, Palin replies: "Well, he's doing fine and yeah, when you come into a position underestimated it gives you an opportunity to prove the pundits and the critics wrong. You work that much harder." Canada's prime minister is Stephen Harper.

You can listen to the clip on YouTube HERE - it's kind of scary how long it took someone running for vice president to figure out she was getting punked.
