The conversation, posted on the Internet, ranges from American politics to the perils of hunting with Vice President Dick Cheney, who accidentally shot and injured a hunting companion in 2006.
Comedian Marc-Antoine Audette, masquerading as Sarkozy, suggested he and Palin go hunting together, perhaps by helicopter. Palin said she would be ``a careful shot.''
The McCain campaign confirmed the telephone call. ``C'est la vie,'' said Palin spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt.
Palin was ``mildly amused to learn that she had joined the ranks of heads of state, including President Sarkozy, and other celebrities in being targeted by these pranksters,'' said Schmitt.
Audette asked Palin if Joe the Plumber was her husband, and she replied that, no, her husband was a ``normal American who works hard and doesn't want the government to take his money,'' according to the audio.
