Tweet of the day: McCain congratulates Palin

(CNN) – Sen. John McCain of Arizona, something of a prolific user of Twitter compared to other senators, took to the site Tuesday to recognize his one-time running mate's guest hosting of a morning television show.

"Great job by @SarahPalinUSA on @TODAYShow this morning!" he tweeted of Sarah Palin's morning television appearance.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska, guest co-hosted the NBC morning program as Katie Couric guest co-hosted ABC's "Good Morning America." In an interview with Couric in the 2008 election, Palin was unable to name any newspapers which she read.

    Great job, indeed. I saw one segment only–Tori Spelling was giving tips on throwing a party and Mrs. Palin pointed to a food item and asked "Is that moose?"

    She did a great job of not making a fool of herself. Practice makes perfect.

    If she continues to be a regular QUEST host I am switching channels and will not watch NBC morning show. It is to early to listen to that voice that makes no sense she belongs back on fox news.

    I had a sandwich for lunch, and McCain congratulated the plague he released upon us on his failed 2008 Presidential bid. Neither one are news worthy nor do they belong on the ticker. Come on, CNN!

    Only Palin can go for from scaling rock formations on Sarah Palin's Alaska to morning tv with such ease. If she was a man, she would be labeled a renaissance man.

    This article is truly puke-worthy. It's bad enough that NBC decided to have the airhead on the Today Show! I mean, seriously, CNN!

    Sarah Palin: still stupid after all these years. How did McCain congradulate her with a straight face?

    Palin hasn't learned to make one coherant sentence, foreigners come into this country and speak better English than her. Palin should never say English should be the first language.
