Palin Not Qualified to Teach Third Graders

Palin, when asked by a second grader, "What does the Vice President do?" tells him that the Vice President is in charge of the Senate. Ironically, this is the very same question Palin was seeking an answer to earlier this year. Apparently, no one gave her an answer. Hint to Palin: Google may help you out on this one. Try searching, "Powers of Vice President."

I hope Brandon Garcia has adults at home that can correct the potential next Vice President of the United States. Someone should tell her what a Vice President does before she shows up to work and starts ordering Harry Reid around.


Harry Reid apparently felt the same way. His spokesman gives the following statement to Think Progress:
This comment is all the more puzzling because this is at least the 2nd time she has said this. Gov Palin needs to re-read or perhaps read for the first time the Constitution. While the Vice President presides over the Senate, he or she is not in charge of it. Article 1 says The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided.

The Senate is part of a co-equal branch of the federal government.
