Joe Scarborough loves the GOP. He loves it so much, he is asking its leaders to man up and touch the third rail of conservative politics: Sarah Palin. Stop pretending she has a shot at the Oval Office. Of course, if your really base loves this Alaskan ninny as much as they seem to, you could always make a different move: change your party name from the G.O.P. to the D.O.P.E.

In a particularly caustic passage, Scarborough seeks to draw a comparison between the accolades of H.W. Bush and Palin.

I suppose Palin’s harsh dismissal of this great man is more understandable after one reads her biography and realizes that, like Bush, she accomplished a great deal in her early 20s. Who wouldn’t agree that finishing third in the Miss Alaska beauty contest is every bit as treacherous as risking your life in military combat? Maybe the beauty contestant who would one day be a reality star and former governor didn’t win the Distinguished Flying Cross, but the half-termer was selected as Miss Congeniality by her fellow contestants.
