Makes You Long For The Constitutional Respect Of A Dick Cheney
Sarah Palin, proving that even local interviewers can make her look bad:
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.
Yeah, um, I'm going to go ahead and say "No" on that one. The Vice President is not "in charge" of the Senate. They don't set policy or decide what comes up for a vote. They are the presiding officer if they so choose, and can only vote in the event of a tie.
Let's hope we never have to find out what she means by this.
