Sarah Palin continued her tour of the Fox News shows to wax ignorant about the Duck Dynasty douchebag’s bigoted comments, appearing on Sean Hannity’s show to invoke an unnamed and, I’m guessing, imaginary friend “who happens to be gay” and supports her position:
In an interview last week with Fox News, Palin pointed a finger at the network for suspending Robertson and described an email conversation she had with a friend of hers “who happens to be gay.”
“She emailed me to say she is outraged at A&E for the hypocrisy here, for the things that they air on their program that she finds offensive, yet A&E doesn’t fire a star or somebody involved in their programming based on what they said but they would when it comes to Phil on Duck Dynasty and this friend, she said that she would boycott A&E and that network, and uh, um, she’s not the only one,” Palin said.
Funny how that anonymous, allegedly gay friend doesn’t seem to recognize the blatant hypocrisy of Palin’s position. When it was Martin Bashir a couple weeks earlier saying something mean about her, she demanded his head and, when he was fired, said nary a word about the First Amendment.
