Sarah Palin

I Never Read Phil Robertson's GQ Article

Even Though I'm Defending Him!

So much for reading " all of em,' any of em" ...

Sarah Palin -- one of Phil Robertson's strongest supporters -- admitted SHE HASN'T READ THE GQ ARTICLE that ignited the firestorm!!!!

Palin appeared on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren" the other night ... when Greta asked if Phil's explanation about why he disapproved homosexuality was too graphic in the magazine article.

Palin's response -- "I haven't read the article ... I don't know exactly how he said it."

Funny, Palin was one of the first people to defend Robertson after the story broke earlier this month -- on Dec. 18 she took to Facebook to write, "Free speech is an endangered species. Those 'intolerants' hatin and taking on the 'Duck Dynasty' patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us."

Somewhere, Kate Couric is probably chuckling ..

Kinda like the idiots who think she said she could see Russia from her backyard.
Why does she need to read the article to defend his right of religious freedom or his right to free speech? That's in the Constitution, not GQ.

Lame TMZ... #1 this story isn't TMZ worthy and is nothing more than a blatant hack attack on plain. #2 please don't mention her so she will disappear don't put her name out there.

She may be a terrific spokesperson for the far right, semi-literate faction of the Republican party.
Those who embrace the killing of helpless creatures and the despoiling of the planet in order to line their pockets with money.

I'm not offended by what Phil Roberson Said, I'm just sad that we have people in this country that listen and follow Sarah Palin. That's what's really Sad

She's such a moron. I bet that she didn't value freedom of speech when people were talking about her and her family. Hypocrite, big time. Come out of the cave people! Come into this decade, that is what God would want.

How many times must this woman embarrass herself with her ignorance. Why does the media even give her air time?

You don't have to read exactly what someone said to defend their right to free speech, geniuses. And still whining about Palin in 2013? Know how we know you are gay? Only gays are that hateful.

I don't see how this changes anything. Free speech is free speech. I can only defend the stuff I read? I don't think so.

She has to read the article before deciding that free speech is a good thing? Why?
