Joe Scarborough Compares a Heavily Made-Up Lindsey Graham To Ziggy Stardust (VIDEO)

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham was on 'Meet the Press' Sunday to talk about the fiscal issues facing the new congress. However, after viewing a clip of Graham's appearance, all 'Morning Joe' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on MSNBC), host Joe Scarborough wanted to do was discuss how much foundation Graham was wearing, comparing him to Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie's kabuki-make-up-faced character from the '70s.

"Willie, did you follow David Bowie through the Ziggy Stardust period?" Scarborough asked Willie Geist.

"I think I know where you're going with this," Geist responded, motioning toward his own face.

"(Graham) had more makeup on there than Bowie did during Ziggy," Scarborough concluded.

Mika Brzezinski then admonished the two of them for focusing on Graham's appearance, rather than what he had said. So they dropped it. However, Mika wasn't able to prevent 'Morning Joe's' producers from playing the song 'Ziggy Stardust' in Graham's honor.

As if Graham himself had anything to do with the makeup - what kind, how much, how applied.
How stupidly adolescent for Scarborough to even mention it!!
