Why does Palin think this makes her look good?

And why does CNN think this puts an "unfavorable light" on Schmidt? I think it makes him seem like a reasonable, rational political operative.

Excerpts obtained by The Huffington Post characterize Schmidt in an unfavorable light, particularly in reference to the prank phone call Palin received from someone pretending to be French President Nicolas Sarkozy. "Right away, the phones started ringing," Palin writes. "One of the first calls was Schmidt, and the force of his screaming blew my hair back. 'How can anyone be so stupid?! Why would the president of France call a vice presidential candidate a few days out?!'" /

I mean, if this happened, Schmidt's reaction seems pretty understandable.

This prank phone call made Palin look like an abject fool, simply because why would the French president have tracked her down? This episode revealed her for the hubris-filled, nicompoop that she is. In the words of Schmidt, indeed...."How can anyone be so stupid?"
