Even J. Danforth Quayle knew his place

Speaking of the Constitution, AK Gov. Sarah Palin believes the vice president of the United States "is in charge of the U.S. Senate."

Even worse, she told that to a third grader who had asked, "What does the vice president do?" And once she's "in charge of the U.S. Senate," AK Gov. Palin thinks she "can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes."

Much like John Nance Garner, vice president under Franklin Delano Roosevelt for eight years, who during that time cast a grand total of three tie breaking votes.

Unfortunately for AK Gov. Palin, she isn't running for high office in Italy but actually hopes to be elected vice president of the United States in two weeks, which may or may not be enough time to figure out what the job entails.

Not that that matters terribly, since it appears AK Gov. Palin's current ceremonial role is one of preventing John McCain from becoming president of anything.
