Admit It… Sarah Palin is a ‘Whack Job’

Joe Scarborough On Palin: Her Biography Makes Obama’s Look Like Winston Churchill’s

 A top McCain adviser one-ups the priceless “diva” description, calling her “a whack job.”

Former Republican Congressman and current MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is out with a vicious new post encouraging Republicans to “man up” and take Sarah Palin down a peg. As if trying to get the ball rolling, he precedes this suggestion with a few choice volleys of his own.

“Republicans have a problem,” Scarborough writes at Politico. “The most-talked-about figure in the GOP is a reality show star who cannot be elected.”

Scarborough’s main beef with Palin seems to be that, in his view, she just is not serious enough to be considered a viable GOP candidate for president in 2012, and despite the supposed general acceptance of this as fact, Republicans sit idly, afraid to speak out, while Palin basks in the pre-campaign limelight.

Republican strategist Karl Rove questioned Palin’s presidential “gravitas” in October and wondered how helpful her new reality TV show on TLC would be at proving her value as a potential head-of-state.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, still embroiled in a frigid recount battle, took a moment away from her campaign recently to publicly question Palin’s “leadership qualities” and “intellectual curiosity” for becoming president.

It’s all part of a larger trend that Politico reported in October, a supposed understanding that Republicans cannot allow Sarah Palin to win the GOP presidential nomination. Reporters Mike Allen and Jim VaneHei later characterized the basis of their piece as the worst kept GOP secret, a commonly accepted mission that Republicans were afraid to publicly admit for fear of backlash amongst Palin’s adamant and enthusiastic following.

Scarborough, however, apparently believes that the GOP’s “stop Palin” assignment should be clear, and he, for one, is seemingly willing to announce himself as one of its proud champions. Read his whole piece here.

    Every time the Tundra Turd tweets, she admits that she is a whack-job. How can I argue with that level of intellectual power?

    OMG! I love the last line in Gryphen’s post by the gal who made the enemies list. Truer words have never been spoken:
    “I’ve watched enough nature shows to know that if a real Mama Grizzly fought this much of the time — we’d have to assume the beast was rabid.”

    Joe is not a person that I look up too. He too walked away from his elected position under more than dubious circumstances. I for one will not give support to him now that he has decided to speak out against Palin. An enemy of my enemy won’t always be a friend. If Palin should decide to use Joe’s own poor track record against him he has no leg to stand upon.

      I appreciate your disapproval of his resignation in his 5 term. If you’re speaking of the death of his constituent services coordinator, there was no evidence of foul play on that. Joe Scarborough’s political record when he was representing Florida.. between 1996 and 2000, was pretty conservative………consistently. He definitely is independent thinking. Plus, he’s just a ‘talking head’ who doesnt want to be president. Sarah is a ‘bobble head’ who wants to be president
