Joe Scarborough rips Sarah Palin

Bewitched_edited-1 You just know this is gonna be ugly.

Former Florida congressman Joe Scarborough, host of the MSNBC show Morning Joe, wrote an opinion piece for Politico today telling Republicans it is time for the GOP "to man up" and tell it like it is about Sarah Palin.

Scarborough clearly does not think much of the half-term former Alaska governor.

Scarborough says GOP leaders know Palin cannot win in 2012 but they are "too scared" to take on the "reality show star."

He says it is time to speak the truth about Palin. Scarborough seems particularly offended by Palin's trash-talk about Ronald Reagan who she dismissed as merely an actor. She also makes unpleasant comments about George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

This is all too much for Scarborough.

He does credit her with knowing "how to make millions of dollars, even if she embarrasses herself while doing it." 

Beyond Palin's ability to make money, it is clear Scarborough thinks little Palin and even less of GOP who grumble in private but are too afraid to challenge her publicly.

Humm so Jow wants the truth?
First he refers to Palin as a "quarter termer". Governors serve four year terms, a quarter term is 1 year! I haven't heard Joe blaze Obama for being "half term" U.S Senator. Nor has anyone yet mentioned the fact that Joe himself resigned from Congress prematurel­y and unexpected­ly yourself after a scandal!
And someone tell Joe... Palin endorsed Marco Rubio in the Florida primaries. Marco is a Tea Party chosen. Joe doesn't like the Tea Party.


I predict a lot more rank and file Republicans are going to get more vocal about her.
She's over-exposed and jumping the shark.
The reality show will create more fans but shrink her political support.


Several weeks ago Peggy Noonan wrote that Palin is a "nincompoop." Don't hold back, Peggy.
