But of course, Greta Van Susteren of Fox News gives her a pass...

NewsHounds:

During another FOX News softball interview with Sarah Palin, Greta Van Susteren asked Palin how she envisions her role as Vice President. Palin wrongly stated, "Well, they've got to be exclusively, of course, concentrating on the administrative side of governance and there again, that's where my executive experience will be put to good use."

Actually, just about the only role for the VP set out by the Constitution is to act as the tie-breaking officer of the Senate.

Oh for crying out loud...now this is just plain obstinacy. When you've been criticized for not knowing the job description of the position for which you've been campaigning not once but at least twice in a short two month period, don't you think this is an answer you'd take pains to get right?

No wonder why there's a show on the air "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader"...we're consistently dumbing down the population so that they don't know what a Vice President is for...or what their Constitutional rights are...

We are in the beginning stages of Idiocracy, make no mistake. And Sarah Palin is the posterchild for it.

Can you help us out?
