Kaine Zings Palin

Rosalind Helderman

Democrats can do two jobs at once, Republicans can't even handle one.

That seemed to be the message from Gov. Tim Kaine, speaking on the monthly Ask the Governor program on WTOP today. Queried by reporter Mark Plotkin about whether he would resign as governor or resign as chairman of the Democratic National Committee, as demanded by the chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, Kaine shot back.

"Heck no!" he said. "People elected me to be governor and I'm doing it every day."

Then, he added a little dig at former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.

"Now, I know Republicans seem to like this governor resigning thing. I think a prominent Republican governor resigned the other day. I'm keeping my four-year commitment to the Virginia voters who put me in office."

But he's not keeping his commitment at all...

VABlogger's answer is about as sophisticated as the familiar "is too", "is not", "is too," "is not" from the playground.

Kaine is keeping his commitment by serving actively and effectively as governor, while also taking on the job of DNC chair.

Remember that Virginia governor Jim Gilmore served as head of the Republican National Committee in his final year in office, so wearing these two hats in the final year isn't even something new.
