Somebody, please give Sarah Palin a copy of the U.S. Constitution

Chris Matthews understands the problem.  The Vice-President is not “in charge” of the Senate.

Even McCain’s own policy advisers know that Palin’s abject ignorance of the VP’s job duties and her recently disclosed extravagance are, finally, putting the McCain campaign where it should have been many months ago:  in the cellar.

Some might think that Matthews was overly-aggressive.  Not me.  McCain and Palin are dangerous fools and it’s time to hold their feet (along with their fancy shoes) to the fire.

How fancy?  Consider this line by Swampland:

What’s the difference between a Pit Bull and a Hockey Mom? You can feed a pit-bull for 483 years with 150 grand.

  1. I have to admit, watching this, that I find Chris Matthews' approach a bit ridiculous. Besides, like Bill O'Reilly, he's a rhetorical bully, I don't care if he is speaking for the Left.

    The role of the vice president as prescribed by the Constitution, is what he says it is—but the reality has been that the vice president does whatever the president tasks him (or her, now) to do within legal limits. The difference has been Cheney, which is obviously the model Sarah Palin is using, and in that context her "take" is understandable, as she's basing it on the reality of her (perhaps) predecessor.

    But I dislike steamroller tactics like Matthews employs, no matter what the point of view. He's "right" to a fault.

    Mark: I think that Matthews should have simply pulled out a copy of the Constitution and had McCain's spokesperson read along with him. He should have used far fewer words. But I also enjoyed hearing someone finally aggressively interrupt and challenge McCain's spokesperson when she spouted pure BS. She could have made the interview short by saying "The VP is not in charge of the Senate. Sarah Palin was incorrect."

  3. Thank GOD (sarcasm intended) for people like Matthews who refuse to be quiet in the face of this BS!!
