Palin punk'd

I saw it first at Eschaton and I wasn't sure if it was real or not, but The Caucus confirms this is really Sarah Palin on this prank call made by some disk jockeys at a Canadian radio station. Hilarious.

To be fair, I've never heard of the singer the fake Sarkozy cited as his American advisor but one might have thought Palin would have caught the joke at the point where the caller wrongly identified the Canadian President. Even I know it's Stephen Harper and he was in the papers a lot a couple of weeks ago during the Canadian elections. I mean, Sarah does claim to read all the papers.

It's amazing the the VP candidate for the republicans doesn't know the name of the Prime Minister of the country that is the US's biggest trading partner, Canada?

There's only 2 countries that border the US and she doesn't know the name of the Prime Minister of one of them?

Alaska is next door to Canada, so how hard can it be to not know the name of the Canadian Prime Minister? After all, she can probably see Canada from her front door too:)

Mrs energy expert doesn't even know the name of the prime minister of the country that is the biggest supplier of energy to the US?

Let alone as a her not knowing the name of the Premier of Quebec, the 2nd largest Canadian province. Or that there is no Prime Minister of Quebec, or any Canadian province they're all called Premiers. She's a Governor, she should at least know the title of her Canadian counterparts.

It would be like a Canadian politician thinking there is a president of the state of Florida.

All politicians get pranked, no big shame in that. The big shame is that she's so clueless about the country next door to her. And she's want's to be one heart attack away from the presidency.

That's the thing. Everybody gets punk'd. God know I have, but it's her utter cluelessness on not picking on the obvious cues. I also don't know the Premier of Quebec, but not knowing Harper is really bad.

Hum, Anonymous, there is indeed a Prime Minister of Qu├ębec as there is no difference between Premier and Premier Ministre in french...Furthermore, if English Canada usually keep the title of Prime Minister for the federal leader, you can still refer to Premiers as provincial Prime Ministers.

As for Palin, her ignorance goes beyond not knowing names...
