Sarah Palin: What is it exactly that the V.P. does

erku's picture

Take a look at this video, where Palin has no idea what a V.P. does.

Fast forward to 2.50 minute segment where John McCain's running mate Sarah Palin says the following:

Palin: "[A]s for that V.P. talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the V.P. does every day? I’m used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that V.P .slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question."

update: wow, to the rec list. Sorry for such a scant post. I suck at teh write. My favorite part of the video is when Kudlow has to explain that the OVP is indeed, important.

update2x: Don't want to overlook the first part of this video, where Kudlow's question about her ongoing ethics investigation is answered with "it's cool." Like totally, Sara!

update3x h/t to nailbender:

the most damaging part of the quote, imo,

is this:

We want to make sure that that V.P .slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question."

She needs to read the Constitution. The Vice President is a national position. Telegraphing her intention to use the position to advance the interests of one state is a huge gift, not to the GOP, but to the Dems.

Editor's note: HULIQ does respect VP candidate Sarah Palin and commends her for her reforms while done as the governor of Alaska, but we thought the above post is important to share with our readers.
