MSNBC'S Joe Scarborough may have just come up with the worst possible backhanded compliment to Sarah Palin.

Discussing her trip to Iowa with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC today, he lauded her as “the one political star in the Republican Party right now” and for her “questionable ability to govern” and status as a “political superstar,” crowned her “the Republican Party’s Barack Obama.

”“She’s got star quality,” Mitchell noted as she observed the massive crowds following her in Iowa. Scarborough agreed enthusiastically, arguing that “of all the candidates in this race, there’s no doubt

This moron is another who should have the "R" stripped from his credentials. Mourning Joke is almost as bad as Keith Olbermann or E.D. Schultz in saying outrageous things to try and get an audience.

Joe Scarborough is MSNBC's Howdy Doody.

No comparison moron Scarborough. Palin has run a business, been mayor of her town, in charge of energy in her state, governor of her state and vice presidential candidate. Obama still hasn't learned to be an effective administrator. And, let us not forget that Palin left office to a person she trusted with a solvent state to run. Bravo Sarah Palin.

Is Joe trying to get in good with the lame media and thus the stupid anti-Rep and anti-Conservative comments?
Did he get smacked for calling the libs idiots when they criticized the tea party during the debt debate? Did he meekly agree to get back on the reservation to save his job?
Joe, either grow a spine or go home.

Now hold on there, Joe. Attacking her handicapped son, and the rest of her family, is one thing, but saying she's like Zippy the Dunce is just going too far.

No need to duck. We Palin-ites are nothing like Obama-ites. We are not vindictive or violent. We just respect someone with values that are not poll driven, and who will not trade those values to get along with their "good friend across the aisle." The Palin haters on this board often support the candidates who do not display those qualities.

The biggest difference between Palin and Obama is that Palin is not a Marxist, and does not want to see the US destroyed. I'd call that pretty significant.
