Palin: Where are my gays?
That will cost her in the primaries


Sarah Palin stirred the Twittersphere Monday evening when she retweeted a pro-gay message by lesbian
conservative commentator Tammy Bruce concerning the "hypocrisy" of homophobic and anti-gay actions.

"But this hypocrisy is just truly too much. Enuf already--the more someone complains about the homos
the more we should look under their bed," Bruce wrote Monday, reportedly about the dismissal of U.S.
Navy Captain Owen Honors, following the release of a series of controversial videos made aboard the
USS Enterprise that featured gay slurs, cross-dressing, and simulated same-sex encounters.

Later that day, Palin retweeted the message, first caught by Gawker.

Max Read at Gawker suggests that her decision to delve into such a politically charged post could have
been driven by a number of motives. Though he doesn't discount potential confusion or a simple mistake
as a catalyst, Read also believes that it's possible that Palin believed it to be the proper forum to outline
her stance on gay rights, a social issue that she has kept mostly quiet about during her rise to political stardom.

What's Palin up to?

Did she intend to write, "Screw those gays," but forget which side of the issue she was on?
Maybe she didn't have room to write "I hate gays" on her hand and got confused.

Or... is she going to run against Obama in 2012 with the tag line,
"I'm pro-gay rights and Obama is not?"
