French President Nicolas Sarkozy's Facebook account was hacked yesterday. The perpetrator wrote, "I have decided in my spirit and conscience not to run for office again," then invited people for going away drinks next year. Eh, this one was better.
I don't see how this is a squandered opportunity. It's much more realistic than the typical curse laden hack and thus will have a much larger effect in the long run. People will actually believe it and it will live on for far longer.
If anything, this is one of the better such hacks I've ever seen.
