    I have a very hard time thinking this is real

    I am sure if the president of another country were going to be calling Sarah Palin, they would have called someone above her to get the number to what ever hotel room she would be in and in that case someone would have been calling her to let her know to expect a call.

    its cute and funny but it doesnt seem realistic it was really her on the phone

    Who knows? Here's the full transcript of the prank call made to Palin

    BTW, I'm not saying this makes her unfit to serve as VP or anything...that's already obvious. And she's not the only celebrity to be made a victim by these guys..supposedly they've pranked Mick Jagger and Bill Gates among others.

    Well I supose if they can find a way to get in touch with Mich and Bill they could have found a way to get in touch with Palin too.

    Those guys are in the wrong business, they should investigate things if they are that good :)

    A petty point but I would have been able to tell this is a Canadian French accent :)
