Palpatine stronger? No...Vader was keeping him alive for two reasons, Palps vastly superior Dark Side knowledge, and he needed a partner to run the galaxy (big place).

As far as Vader being injured by Palps lightning attack, remember both he and Luke were totally exhausted after a major fight. Luke had just beaten him within an inch of his mechanical life...Vader's tank was empty, but he still shrugged Palpatine off and threw him to his death.
I like this joke!
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."
