Moose-gutter Redux

Making fun of Sarah Palin is too easy. It's like breathing or finding Dave Barry funny. Nonetheless, I must share with you this little snippet I encountered a few minutes ago on my daily scan of The Huffington Post. In the course of a piece that blasts the habitual idiocy of Mark Halperin, Bob Cesca segues neatly into remarks about the stupidest political quotations of the year that didn't get the notice they deserved. I herewith present this one from the Alaskan Bimbo that you might have missed. Cesca nominates it for Most Ridiculous Political Quote of the Year. It needs no further comment. I leave it to you to contemplate the meaning of this woman running for vice president of the United States. And yes, what's below are her exact words.
Q: One of the things you talked about last night was the flexibility the vice president has--
PALIN: Yeah.

Q: --Uh. What did you mean by that?

PALIN: Uh. That thankfully our founders were wise enough to say we have this position and it's constitutional -- vice president will be able to be not only the position flexible, but it's gonna be those other duties as assigned by the president. A simple thing.
