@SarahPalinUSA’s DADT Retweet Sends Shockwaves Through Grizzlytown

Does Sarah Palin’s retweeting of conservative lesbian pundit Tammy Bruce’s criticism of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell count as agreeing with her position? Or merely highlighting it? Twitter etiquette can be hard! “But this hypocrisy is just truly too much,” tweeted Bruce, which Palin (or whoever is manhandling her Twitter account) pressed a button to shoot out verbatim to her 350,000 followers. “Enuf already–the more someone complains about the homos the more we should look under their bed.” Maybe she was just retweeting it because she liked the word “enuf.” But Bruce certainly thinks the retweet is the same thing as an endorsement: “I think @SarahPalinUSA RT my tweet is her first comment on DADT, treatment of gays & attempts to marginalize us–thank you Governor.” Um, it’s pronounced “thank you President.”

    “I think @SarahPalinUSA RT my tweet is her first comment on DADT, treatment of gays & attempts to marginalize us–thank you Governor.”

    That’s EX-governor. Since she quit in mid term, she shouldn’t even be given the title of governor.

    “I think @SarahPalinUSA RT my tweet is her first comment on DADT, treatment of gays & attempts to marginalize us–thank you Governor.”

    That’s EX-governor. Since she quit in mid term, she shouldn’t ever be referred to as governor.

    Mama Grifter is a stupid cunt. Everyone knows it. Her tweets, Facebook rants and opinions on politics have as much weight as stepping off a curb, singular.

    @christopher di spirito: Never underestimate the power of a beautiful woman with absolutely no brains to mislead a nation of sex crazed men.

    Sarah, while mostly brainless, sure the hell does know how to control the masses, and she uses that to her advantage time and time again. With the current love of Palin and the current hatred of Obama, I can honestly see Sarah as President Palin in 2012.

    Oops – I pressed the ‘launch nukes’ button by mistake. I thought it was my twitter account. Yikes!

  • RomanHans

    Sigh. Queerty, I poke fun at your occasionally. At your misspellings, your focus on braindead fame whores, your crazy grammar. But when you actually CHANGE the news, you pose a real problem to journalism, and you need to stop.

    Where do you get the information Sarah Palin “accidentally retweeted” this message? She hasn’t said anything of the kind.

    Please, don’t make up news. I’ll stick by you through a lot, but not that.

    The idea that a RE-Tweet counts as Sarah Palin’s ringing endorsement of everything the gay community has been fighting for is a joke!

    Especially sad is that Gay Republicans cling to this a major LGBT policy victory in their party! Snap out of it! The GOP hates you!

  • tjr101

    If this is indeed genuine support by Palin for gay rights it could be a potential boon for her chances of getting elected given that there are a lot of gays just itching to find a reason to support her. Thank goodness I’m not one of them!

  • christopher di spirito

    @tjr101: “a lot of gays just itching to find a reason to support her?” FOFLMAO! That’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever read on Queerty.

  • tjr101

    @christopher di spirito: LOL sounds funny, but its true. GOProud, Log Cabiners, and just the average Obama haters come to mind.

  • Matthew Rettenmund

    @Christopher: Love of Palin and hatred of Obama = imaginary. Obama’s at 50% now and Sarah Palin has steadily LOST popularity since her first introduction on the national stage. Gays, by and large, support the job the president is doing. It’s only in certain circles that gays seem to hold the president accountable for everything they’d never dare to pin on the Clintons and other let-downs. The president is not a perfect ally, but he’s an ally, and even pre-DADT repeal, his standing among gay voters (according to a poll leaked over the weekend) has remained strong. Doesn’t mean we should ease up on holding him to his promises, but that’s reality.

    @tjr101: Liberals do/did more to foist Sarah Palin upon the world than anyone. Keeping her name alive at every possible turn. I don’t know why that is as she never seemed interesting to me.

  • tjr101

    @Kev C: You are correct in your assessment, it’s mainly those on the left that keeps harping about her and makes her seem “relevant,” but this doesn’t take away from the fact that there are a lot of gays who would vote for her in the general of it means more tax cuts.

  • Kev C

    @tjr101: Yeah because pop whores like popular shit, whether it be Lady Gaga or Sarah Palin. Iz popular? Si, iz pop. Okaydoke, I’m down.

  • Meowzer

    I sure Sarah Palin didn’t “accidentally” do anything… except get caught.

  • justiceontherocks

    @TJR – show us one piece of evidence that lots of gay people are itching for a reason to vote for Palin. [gopROUD has three members, so they don’t count]

  • RomanHans

    If the many-aliased commenter from GetEQUAL could actually point to some concrete results they’ve achieved, maybe they wouldn’t have to troll every post on every gay website and speciously claim that donations to them will buy us equality.

  • mikeincleveland

    Palin isn’t going to be able to be pro-gay squat if she actually does run for President because she’ll have to pivot Right enough to push Huckabee out of the spotlight (much less Gingrich and/or maybe Pence- who now looks to want to run for Governor of Indiana instead.)

    So whatever kudos she’ll get from GOProud for a half-second will quickly go away once the GOP primaries start getting closer.

    We’re looking at one more major national election cycle before the GOP will be able to shake off enough of the faith-based, conservative neck-hold they’ve allowed themselves to get into and be able to appeal to a more moderate-lite base of voters (i.e. those LGBT’ers who think their tax rate is more important than their ability to get married or discriminated against.)

  • christopher di spirito

    @tjr101: OK, the .089% of one percent of LGBT voters. Shutter! Palin really has a chance!

  • steveMD2

    Palinism is a mental disorder characterized by delusions of grandeur and thinking that diplomacy is seeing one island from another.

    Did it take her 4 or was it 5 different colleges to get a degree in journalism.

    The only thing she did for AmeriKKKa is to help protect us from McCain. Our moral values repub who dumped the wife who waited 7 years for him to return. To take a trophy wife worth 200 mil $

    As a 2 star general said at the SLDN rally a week before DADT got its 50 cal in the head – McCains like a milk carton om the store shelf, the date saying “expired”

    They should put him in a nursing home with one of those transponder wristbands – go near a door and it locks.

    No one from GetEQUAL is posting those donate links. It’s AndrewW, just pulling his usual stunts. Queerty, won’t you ban him already? 5 other blogs have due to his childish antics.

  • Mack Robertson

    Poor, poor Sarah. I’ve never decided if she if just dumb or stupid. I’ll cast my vote for both.
