Sarah Palin: 18,000 Tiny Cracks in her Credibility

Rudolph Guiliani just declared on MSNBC that Sarah Palin last night gave one of the best debate performances in U.S. history.

Perhaps he is hopped up on goofballs.


Two quick reactions about her debate performance:

* She ripped the mainstream media in her closing remarks, but it should be pointed out that it wasn't the mainstream media who gave incoherent answers during the Katie Couric interviews, it was she herself. And she still hasn't had a press conference, because she knows it will expose her serious lack of depth.

* Her answer about expanding the powers of the vice presidency "with a bit more authority" based on the constition was baffling, incoherent and a little scary.
"I'm thankful the Constitution would allow a bit more authority given to the vice president also if that vice president so chose to exert it in working with the Senate and making sure that we are supportive of the president's policies and making sure too that our president understands what our strengths are."

That's an exact quote. Decoder wheel not included.

The Constitution comment was bizarre. For some one that professes to support "strict interpretation" of the Constitution it is even more confusing. I'm not sure what "powers" she was referring to... The only reference that I can find in the Constituion regarding duties or powers of the Vice President is contained in Article II. There it mentions the Vice President shall preside over the Senate and vote to break a tie, and "In case of the removal of the President from office, or of his death, resignation, or inability to discharge the powers and duties of the said office, the same shall devolve on the Vice President..." and finally that the Vice President "shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors."

The last point should seriously be considered regarding Dick Cheney for his interpretation that the Constituion allow for "a bit more authority" and for "exerting" it.

So, what is it for Palin...a strict interpretation, or a bizarre, loose interpretation?
