Palin: What the Vice President Does

How does she not have a better answer for this question yet?!

Q: Brandon Garcia wants to know, “What does the Vice President do?”
PALIN: That’s something that Piper would ask me! … they’re in charge of the U.S. Senate so if they want to they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom.

Come again? I think Palin needs to read the constitution again (or for the first time). As I understand it the VP only has power in the senate when it is an evenly divided house (and a tie breaking vote is necessary). Otherwise her duties are largely ceremonial. Vice Presidents are in the EXECUTIVE branch, not the LEGISLATIVE branch.

Jesus, she can't even answer this question sufficiently at a third grade level. There is no question why they are hiding her from the press: she is as unintellectual, untested, unknowing, and unintelligible as she is physically attractive.
