"Doh" Of The Day

When asked what the vice president does by a third grader Sarah Palin responded by saying that the vice president is the president's "team mate" but also "runs the Senate" and "can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes." Once again, although the VP is the president of the senate, the only power the position has is to cast a tie breaking vote if necessary. The VP does not run the senate.

A Palin spokesperson that she was merely trying to explain the role of the VP in a way that a third grader could understand it. Now if we could only get a third grader to explain it in a way that Sarah Palin could understand it.

The gaffes aren't only coming from the republican side but from the democrats as well. Recently, Joe Biden was quoted as saying "Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack ." Oh, Joe. You got two weeks till E-Day and you resurface the whole inexperience issue. With VPs like these two who needs attack ads?
