Perhaps a better question would be what doesn’t make Sarah Palin a diva? She meets all the necessary criteria. She’s good-looking, she’s ambitious, and she used to be in pageants. She also gives great speech. And let’s not forget that she burned up the McCain campaign coffers with her taste for designer clothes while simultaneously undermining it with a long string of stupid quotes, which is exactly what we would do if we were nominated on the GOP ticket.
Palin prides herself on being a down-home kinda girl, so we’d imagine she’s probably a beer drinker. We’d love to meet her at a corner bar for a local microbrew in Wisilla and flip through Levi Johnston’s Playgirl spread while giggling like schoolgirls. We bet it would be a lot of fun, don’t cha’know.
During her infamous 2008 interview with Katie Couric, Palin somehow managed to proclaim her support of LGBT people while simultaneously insulting them at the same time by saying that homosexuality was a choice. (No one ever accused her of being a logical thinker.)
As for homosexuality, I am not going to judge Americans and the decisions that they make in their adult personal relationships. I have one of my absolute best friends for the last 30 years who happens to be gay, and I love her dearly, and she is not my ‘gay friend,’ she is one of my best friends, who happens to have made a choice that isn’t a choice that I have made. But I’m not going to judge people.
Palin would not have chosen to be a lesbian because she’s not a lesbian. Aren’t you glad she’s not a VP with those thinking skills?
Anyway, since then, Palin’s support of the LGBT community, much like her popularity, seems to have taken a nose dive.
She’s gone on record opposing same-sex marriage, offering same-sex couples employee benefits, or expanding hate crimes laws. She has also stated that she supports a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage nationwide, and let’s not forget that she defended her daughter Willow’s use of homophobic slurs in 2010.
The icing on the cake came last year, when she and her gun-totin’, snow mobile-ridin’ husband, Todd, held an impromptu photo shoot at Chick-fil-A then posted it to her Twitter account.
