Reviewing potential GOP presidential contenders at the Iowa Freedom Summit on Monday, Jon Stewart would have had enough material from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Donald Trump and Texas Gov. Rick Perry—but as usual, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was the star.

Viewing footage of what conservative MSNBC host Joe Scarborough called a “tragedy” of a speech, the host of “The Daily Show” couldn’t tear his eyes away from Palin’s incoherent address to her audience of adoring fans.

“It was all going fine until tragically her subjects stopped talking to her verbs,” Stewart, later adding that the speech “wasn’t just regular-person incoherent, it was Palin incoherent.”

“Now we know what it’s like to get cornered by Mrs. Palin at an open bar wedding,” he said.

A choice excerpt from Palin’s speech closed the segment: “To finally stop this overreaching bureaucracy, we get on offense and drive in solutions—and we be bold,” she said on the footage.

“Sarah Palin doesn’t believe in your liberal elitist ‘grammar’ and ‘syntax,'” Stewart concluded. “She be bold.”
