It’s Hard Work!

Sarah Palin isn’t exactly sure what the vice president does every day. I wouldn’t expect her to be familiar with the job description, seeing as how it’s found in a document that isn’t too popular in Republican circles, the U.S. Constitution.

So let’s help her out. Article one, Section 2: The Vice-President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.

Article II, Section 1: In case of 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…

That pretty much sums it up. And here’s a little trivia for Madame Vice-President. Whoops. I mean Madame Also-Ran. Back in the old days the job came with a warning. Article II, Section 4: The President, Vice-President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. But that one doesn’t apply anymore.
