Staff failure

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin found herself on the receiving end of a prank phone call

Two Montreal comedians posed as French president Nicholas Sarkozy.  They had her going for five minutes before they let her off the hook.  Her office issued a statement admitting she'd been fooled.

Well, actually she wasn't fooled.  Her staff was.  They failed their job of protecting her from this sort of fun. ordinarily staff should have screened the call and confirmed the identity before putting it through.

Yet more evidence Palin and her people aren't ready for the job she's running for.
