Oh Good Lord. Someone Get This Woman A Civics Textbook

Palin has now gone from having no idea what a Vice President does to having the wrong idea. You would think that they would at least have briefed on her on what the hell her job might be if she wins. Get her some index cards or something, ferchrissakes.

Yesterday, Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) sat for an interview with KUSA, an NBC affiliate in Colorado. In response to a question sent to the network by a third grader at a local elementary school about what the Vice President does, Palin erroneously argued that the Vice President is "in charge of the United States Senate":

Q: Brandon Garcia wants to know, "What does the Vice President do?"

PALIN: That's something that Piper would ask me! ... [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.

"I just watched a little of a Sarah Palin speech. I get the feeling this woman has given up running for Dick Cheney's job and is now after Ann Coulter's."-Mark Evanier
