Sarah Palin: Let's Pretend. . .

In a recent response to a third grader's question about what is the role of the Vice President, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said that the VP is in charge of the Senate. Unfortunately, for the good Governor, her answer is in conflict with the United States Constitution. The VP is President of the Senate, whose only official function is to break tie votes. It doesn't empower the VP with any authority over chamber deliberations.

Palin had to clarify her statement, saying she answered in a way a third grader would understand. Oh now its clear, it appears Sarah was playing let's pretend.

But don't worry Governor, after the Obama/Biden ticket wins this November you can always go back to Alaska and pretend to be VP.
