Sarah Palin's Cue Cards

Since jacflash noted the governor continually referring to her notes, I thought I'd link to this. Funny. And yet also not.

it's funny because it's true.

I wonder if exercising authority over the legislative and judicial branches was on those cards:

In an interview with Fox News' Carl Cameron this morning, Palin attempted to explain what she meant about "the flexibility of the vice presidency." "The vice president, of course, is not a member - or a part of the legislative branch, except to oversee the Senate," said Palin. "That alone provides a tremendous amount of flexibility and authority if that vice president so chose to use it."

She then claimed that she intended on "bleeding" her "authority over to the Legislative or Judicial branch" in order to push McCain's agenda:

CAMERON: Would you change any of that, (INAUDIBLE) than the Bush/Cheney administration in terms of the power of the executive?

PALIN: Well, again, as I tried to explain last night, our executive branch will know what our job is. We have the three very distinct branches of government. You know, we might be bleeding our authority over to the Legislative or Judicial branch to do our job in the Executive branch as administers.

A question for McCain in next week's debate: What's scarier, "bleeding" executive authority or "penumbral" constitutional rights? (Setting aside, for the moment, that Palin's response to Couric on the question of a constitutional right to privacy signals her belief in the latter.)
