Sarah Still Unclear on Role of Vice President

October 23, 2008 · 2 Comments

Oh Sarah.  You’ve got to stop giving me so much material.

Stumped by a third grader?  Lying to a third grader?  Unclear on the concept?  You take your pick.

Palin famously stated on camera prior to her announcement as McCain’s VP pick:  “Someone has to tell me what, exactly, the Vice President does.”

Apparently in the whirl of shopping, being sequestered from the press, and memorizing the outrageous claim of the day (Obama pals around with terrorists, Cities are un-American, Obama would raise your taxes) she hasn’t had the time to learn what the role of the Vice President is.

In response to a question from a third-grader on the job of the Vice President, she claimed that she would be “in charge of” the Senate.  Um, no, Sarah, no.

Here is her response more fully:

A vice president has a really great job because not only are they there to support the president’s agenda, they’re there like the team member, the teammate to the president.  But also, they’re in charge of the United States Senate, so if they want to they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom. And it’s a great job and I look forward to having that job.

Oh Sarah, even “the base” is starting to be embarrassed by you and your raw ambition.  I hear Alaska is mighty cold after November 4th.

    Now that we’ve point out the mistakes of Sarah Palin (which i admit are very stupid) why can’t we point out the mistakes of the other candidates like Joe Biden or Obama….I’d like to actually get some non-partisan views of the candidates and be able to have every option of stupidity and flip flops of both candidates, to make an actual informed decision.

    It’s true, Markleo, that I sometimes regret not getting a site that allowed me to more freedom to branch out and comment on the multitude of flip-flops, inconsistencies and other wrong-headedness on display by all candidates of both parties.

    I started this site because one day I was Googling Palin, and wondered who’d started sites to make sure that the truth about Palin was getting out there, and I frankly couldn’t believe the URL was still available – so I bought it.

    For now I’ll stay true to the mission of the site and the URL and focus on Palin – in the future I may branch out.
