Apparently Sarah Palin is not totally convinced that she is viewed by the majority of Americans as a blithering idiot. Perceiving that as a problem she has once again set to the task of immitating that loveable stooge, Moe Howard, and demonstrating her limited intellect. During an interview with a Colorado NBC News affiliate Governor Palin had the opportunity to respond to a question submitted by a third grade student who wanted to know what the Vice President does. Having apparently forgotten significant portions of the constitution Governor Palin responded
"[T]hey’re in charge of the U.S. 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. "
A casual glance at the constitution would reveal to Governor Palin that the Vice President's duties are limited to becoming President if the President is unable to serve, casting a vote in the event of a Senate Deadlock, and to preside over and certify the official vote count of the U.S. Electoral College.
Governor Palin represents all that is wrong with her Party. She is a simple minded ideologue who garners support from the base because of her image rather than her competence. She reminds us how George Bush became President and why we must never again elect the "guy (or gal) you would like to have a beer with."
