Yesterday, Gov. Sarah Palin 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.

Duhhhhhhh. Yeah, she's qualified to hold high office. Imagine if Al Gore had said something like this back in 2000! Apparently, it's only acceptable for Republicans to be ill-informed morons.

You Betcha!

Indeed, while Palin suggests that questions about what the vice president does is something only her daughter Piper would ask, Palin herself asked this very question on national television in July. Apparently, she still hasn’t learned the correct answer.

Article I of the Constitution establishes an exceptionally limited role for the Vice President — giving the office holder a vote only when the Senate is “equally divided”:

The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided.

And the VP has no constitutional role whatsoever when it comes to formulating policy.

Note also the hooker special red leather suit she's wearing.... classy, eh?

She was more honest in July when she said she didn't even know what a VP does.
