Sarah Palin Strikes Out Again! “VP In Charge of Senate”?!

On Monday Palin granted an interview to an NBC affiliate in Colorado. 3rdgrader (9 year old) Brandon Garcia from a local elementary school sent in a question asking Palin, “What does the Vice President do?”

Sarah Palin AGAIN wrongly answered that the Vice President is ‘in charge of the United States Senate’.  Sorry Sarah, while the Vice President presides over the Senate, he or she is not in charge of it. The VP is not a senator and does not have any legislative authority. This is the third time Palin got this SAME question wrong – obviously Sarah Palin is NOT a quick learner!

Palin’s answer: “That’s something that Piper would ask me also! They’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.

Palin herself asked this very question in July – she still hasn’t learned the correct answer.

Article I of the United States 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.

In addition the U.S. Senate website explains that the modern role of Vice Presidents has been to preside over the Senate only on ceremonial occasions.”

My question is, ‘What has Sarah Palin learned while on the campaign trail for 7 weeks.

My answer, absolutely nothing! Betcha she thinks she can still see Russia from her front yard.

Lord help us all!

  1. Shes actually made this statement several times including during the debate, Im surprised its being picked up by the media now.
    I am not surprised though, I expected since she admitted she doesn’t know what the VP does that she wouldn’t know what the VP does.
    Down with McFailin UP with Obama/Biden

  2. You can dress her up in $150,000 worth of clothes from Saks and Neimann-Marcus, but she’s still as stupid as a rock. She is NOT as smart as a 3rd grader!
