Sarah Palin. Late Night Jokes. The VP in the Senate.
"Sarah Palin made three campaign stops today: Saks, Nieman Marcus and Bloomingdales." --Jay Leno
Palin has become the new Dan Quayle, and nobody is responsible for that than the animal killer herself. If I were Palin, I would bury my face in my pillow and curse the day I thought America would believe in me. 2012? You won't make it beyond the primaries, Sarah. Here is the link :
And what about the Vice-President and the Senate? Evidently, Sarah Palin doesn't know what the Vice-President does in the U.S. Senate. And she's committed this gaffe twice during the campaign, and probably hasn't checked the constituion to this day. Here is one of those moments:
For the record, the Vice President presides over the Senate, but that doesn't mean that the VP in charge of it. Article 1 of the constitution stipulates that the Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no vote, unless they be equally divided. The VP can vote and break a tie, but he is not required to. So, the role of the VP in the Senate is very limited. The VP's role in the Senate, otherwise, is ceremonial.
