Joe Scarborough, the token “conservative” on MSNBC, published a column on the Politico that called on Ronald Reagan, Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio conservatives to see Palin as he sees her. It was an attempt to make himself relevant in a party that he feels has up and left him.
If it has, that’s a good thing. Mornin’ Joe has never been too big a conservative, and compromising conservative values is how America got in the state it is today.
But don’t let that stop Joe. He’s one of the few MSNBC hosts yet to fill their anti-Palin diatribe quota for the year:
Why did he add the “mother of five” part in there? Is that supposed to be included in the things for which she should be looked down upon? Or is Joe suggesting that she should just stay home where she belongs and fix lunch for the kids?
And having a reality show is supposed to damage one’s credibility? The current president bragged about scoring blow when he had enough money, but being on TLC is a bridge too far?
Gimme a break.
The fact Joe thinks there is anyone on the planet who could make Obama look like Churchill shows how detached from reality Scarborough actually is.
As for his claim that Palin was disrespectful to Reagan, it’s a complete mischaracterization of what she was saying. She was saying that Reagan’s background was also attacked as being thin and vapid, but he was an excellent president.
Are there concerns about Palin? Show me a candidate you don’t have concerns about. When you find a candidate you don’t disagree with, you’ll find yourself voting for yourself.
But Joe wasn’t to worried about citing his concerns with professionalism. He was snide and condescending. He was very liberal-esque.
This is a Republican that is so left wing he couldn’t even defend McCain on his own talk show:
In the same show, Scarborough—who formerly campaigned for Bush, even serving as a point man in Florida during the 2000 recount—says the McCain campaign’s problem is “they’re strapped to the Bush administration.”
In fact, the only time Scarborough musters a defense of the current Republican nominee comes when another guest mocks McCain’s alleged love of Abba.
“‘Waterloo,’” he says. “Great song.”
Yeah, the Republican party needs to be taking advice from this guy.
However, he’s right about one thing…Waterloo is a great song:
