Sarah Palin on the Vice Presidency

Posted: August 30, 2008 in sarah palin

This is what Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin recently had to say about the office she may (or may not) hold next year:

“As for that VP talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day? I’m used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question.”

For God’s sake, woman, didn’t you study the Constitution when you were in high school?  For the record, here’s what the Vice President does:

  1. Act as tiebreaker in the Senate
  2. Stand in for the President when he’s unable to perform his duties of office
  3. Wait for the President to die or otherwise become incapacitated
  4. Start illegal wars in Asia
  5. Shoot old men in the face

Is that clear?  WTF is this, amateur hour?

  1. Latest poll numbers:
    Palin ready for the VP spot?

    Yes 39% No 33% Unsure 29%

    Looks like that cigar blew up in the McCains face!

    NEW YORK The first national polls on John McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin yesterday came out today from Rasmussen and Gallup — and contrary to what the GOP probably hoped, she scored less well with women than men.

    Here’s a finding from Gallup: Among Democratic women — including those who may be disappointed that Hillary Clinton did not win the Democratic nomination — 9% say Palin makes them more likely to support McCain, 15% less likely.

    From Rasmussen: Some 38% of men said they were more likely to vote for McCain now, but only 32% of women. By a narrow 41% to 35% margin, men said she was not ready to be president — but women soundly rejected her, 48% to 25%.

    Brilliant post, christianliberal. I am a pro-life Democrat and this choice does NOT make me more likely to vote for McCain. He lost my vote a long time ago and would have to make several drastic changes to win it back. This blatant attempt to curry favor will not work.
