Conservative reaction to Sarah Palin's weird and incoherent speech at Rep. Steve King's joint was swift and brutal.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough lamented Palin’s decline from the candidate who once wowed a national audience with her speech at the Republican nominating convention in 2008.
“I think it’s a tragedy, too. We all remember that night she spoke in 2008 at the convention,” Scarborough said. “I will say, it remains one of the most electrifying performances I’ve seen in the last four or five conventions I’ve been to. Nobody expected her to do well. She delivered the lines well; she hit it out of the park.”
Washington Examiner columnist Byron York — described by former Palin adviser Nicolle Wallace as one of her “staunchest supporters” — spoke with conservative activists who attended the speech, few of whom had anything good to say about the one-time GOP star or her speech.
I haven't seen conservatives desert one of their own like this except when there's some seedy corruption case involved.
Clovis said. “Palin was a sad story Saturday. With every speech she gives, she gets worse and worse. If one were playing a political cliche drinking game, no one would have been sober after the first 15 minutes of an interminable ramble. It was really painful.
Poor Joe Scarborough, he's so sad. Sarah Palin has become a national tragedy in his eyes. Too bad conservatives don't feel as bad for the working class as they do for poor multimillionaire Sarah Palin.
