Somebody please tell Sarah Palin what a vice president does

by twit

because this is getting ridiculous.

From the Anchorage Daily News on August 31, 2008:

Q. Are you ready to be President Palin if necessary?

A. I am … I am up to the task of course. Of focusing on the challenges that face America and I am very pleased with the situation that I am in, when, when you consider the situation now that Alaska will be in.

And that is Alaska, and Alaskans will be allowed to contribute more to our great country and they’ll be allowed to do that because I — if we’re elected — will be in a position of opening the eyes of the country to what it is that Alaska is all about and what Alaska has to offer.

hey Governor, here’s a hint: the answer is not “Alaska.”

    Did any of that make sense at all?

  2. deaconloadz says:

    Do you think she’s (alaska) subliminally trying to (alaska) keep reminding us (alaska) where she is from (eskimo)?
    I’m not sure why.

  3. According to Cindy McCain, “Alaska” is the basis of the idea that Governor Palin has national security experience:

    From McCain’s wife, Cindy, came a geographic assessment of qualification: “Alaska is the closest part of our continent to Russia. So, it’s not as if she doesn’t understand what’s at stake here.

    Although in her role as Governor, Palin does not get briefed about national defense issues and plays “no role” in national defense activities:

    Maj. Gen. Craig Campbell, adjutant general of the Alaska National Guard, considers Palin “extremely responsive and smart” and says she is in charge when it comes to in-state services, such as emergencies and natural disasters where the National Guard is the first responder.

    But, in an interview with The Associated Press on Sunday, he said he and Palin play no role in national defense activities, even when they involve the Alaska National Guard. The entire operation is under federal control, and the governor is not briefed on situations.

    Alaska. Isn’t that a U.S. territory or something?

  5. According to ABC News, Sarah Palin’s old political party, the AIP, thinks something like that, too:

    The AIP has “a plank that challenges the legality of the Alaskan statehood vote as illegal and in violation of United Nations charter and international law.”

    and!

    Officials of the Alaskan Independence Party say that Palin was once so independent, she was once a member of their party, which, since the 1970s, has been pushing for a legal vote for Alaskans to decide whether or not residents of the 49th state can secede from the United States.

    And while McCain’s motto — as seen in a new TV ad — is “Country First,” the AIP’s motto is the exact opposite — “Alaska First — Alaska Always.”

    Lynette Clark, the chairman of the AIP, tells ABC News that Palin and her husband Todd were members in 1994, even attending the 1994 statewide convention in Wasilla.
