Jesus this Sarah Palin woman is dumb.
Not just politically dumb: Nah, the Republican choice for Vice President is just plain dumb and stupid. As my granddaddy used to say, what she doesn’t know would fill an encyclopedia.
Her stupidity surpasses even the inane reasoning of GOP Presidential candidate John McCain for picking the obscure and flaky Alaska governor as his running mate.
In the past, Palin has told the nation the President has the power to expand the role of the Vice President – something the President doesn’t have. She’s claimed she has foreign policy experience because, after all, Alaska is the state that’s closest to Russia.
But nothing in her growing volume of stupidity on display tops her answer to a third grader who wanted to know what a Vice President does.
From a television interview with KUSA in Colorado:
Q: Brandon Garcia wants to know, "What does the Vice President do?"
PALIN: That’s something that Piper would ask me! … 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.
Say what? The Vice President presides over sessions of the Senate and serves as the tie-breaking vote in case of a tie. That’s the only role the Constitution gives to the Vice President when it comes to the Senate.
In charge of the Senate? This no doubt comes as a surprise to Harry Reid, the majority leader of the Senate and the guy who’s really in charge.
Get in there with Senators and "make a lot of good policy changes?" They would laugh her out of the room.
In record time, Sarah Palin fell from darling of the McCain campaign to the goat who is now viewed by Americans as a bigger liability than George Bush. The Republican National Committee shelled out 150 grand to dress Palin up with shopping sprees to Saks and Neiman-Marcus but they couldn’t cover her inadequate brain with an expensive smock. She’s not just unqualified to be next in line to be President. She’s an illiterate political hack who will go down in history as the trademark of McCain’s failure as a Presidential candidate.
Palin is an idiot, but John McCain is a bigger idiot for picking her as his running mate.
