Amusing. What’s got me curious is how easily one can call up Palin’s assistant. And surely there must’ve been some disbelief that French President Nicolas Sarkozy would call up Palin, but then again the repercussions of dismissing the real McCoy would’ve been worse. So Palin takes the call, warms up to his compliments, and then the bomb is dropped on her.
But there’s no major damage done; what’s discussed is the trademark themes of Joe the Plumber (who isn’t Joe and isn’t planning to be the average plumber), seeing Alaska and Belgium from their respective houses (c’est impossible!), the travails of campaigning, and a fake Carla Bruni song penned for Palin. It was all in good fun.
But I still like Tina Fey more.
