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 ..

Now seriously, HTF do you comment and publicly voice support for an article you have not bothered to read? And then be dumb enough to admit it?? Wow.

Well you don't have to follow Duck Dynasty or GQ to know that when people rage at someone for quoting the Bible, that that is against free speech, freedom of religion and freedom of expression. Why would she have to be an expert on the article? Greta could have read her the part that she thought was offensive and then had Sarah comment. Instead, people always are out to make Sarah look like a dummy.

She is in fact quite honest and intelligent. She knows how to speak from the heart instead of a script or a paradigm. Even if Paul said what he did in a crude manner, no one is taking away his privileges for that. They are mad that he called something sin, which is 100% in accordance with his religious beliefs.

I don't think Sarah would speak as crudely as he did, but she would most likely agree with his Biblical reference.

From Steve Benen on The Rachel Maddow Show blog:

"Here’s the follow-up question: if Palin didn’t read the interview, and has no idea what Robertson specifically said, how does she know he was “quoting the Gospel”?

Indeed, has she ever read the Bible to know whether or not the Good Book was being “quoted” properly?

If Palin doesn’t know what Scripture says, and doesn’t know what Robertson said, then why is she so eager to stoke the fires of this odd culture-war skirmish? "

Palin = I'll don't have to know jack about jack before I share my antedeluvian beliefs in front of a camera foolish enough to care what I babble out. PALIN IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE FAILURE OF US SCHOOLS - AND THE BEST GIFT COMEDIANS HAVE HAD IN YEARS.

Geez a meez. She spoke in support of freedom of speech, which is THE point. I don't have to agree with what you say but your right to say it is THE point. Don't be a numb-skull. Sadly funny that tiny troll sheeple brains still don't read anything she writes but call her names indicating lack of intelligence. Sarah Palin is more intelligent, gifted and ethical than anyone currently in the desecrated white house that are mooching off your paycheck. Hate is always partnered by ignorance and in modern time is too frequently associated with those that get their news talking points from comedy hour skits. Wake up folks, does your spent bumper sticker make you feel as stupid as you look? If it doesn't, you may not have the intellectual capacity considering the blatant tool you are being used as. Good luck with that.

I think Sarah Palin would be a good advocate for HETEROSEXUALITY on talk shows and at protest rallies if they ever had one.

She could talk like she's a sex therapist like Dr. Ruth and be a cheerleader for vagina for men and penis for women. "Man ass" and "girl on girl" would be frowned upon.

I bet Sarah has (or had) a very nice looking vagina so she's got that as a qualifier. I'm sure guys all over America would go apesheut if she gave everyone a peek every now and then ... just as a sexual teaching aid of course. Maybe her good looking daughter Bristol could join her. I'm sure she inherited a nice looking muffin. :)

Since she quit her post in Alaska, Palin hasn’t run for public office but still plays the part of politician who calls her constituents “fans.” What exactly does she do other than essentially proposition her self and image to the highest bidder? Sounds like Sarah is America’s highest paid escort! See how down and dirty she’ll get for the money at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/06/ecstasy-of-sarah-palin_15.html

""I haven't read the article .....". She proves once again how truly stupid she is. Fox News loves her and many Americans tried to elect her as Vice President of the US.
How scary is that!

this shows what a retard you are. Idiots like you who call her an idiot... but perpetuate the lies about what she said about Russia. Unlike Tina Fey... she did NOT say she could see Russia from her house. She said there are certain places of land in Alaska where you can see Russia... and guess what tard... it's fvcking TRUE. educate yourselves a little. You want so bad to knock down a woman cause you so tough and tolerant and all about diversity you know... that you feed into ridiculous liberal lies without even thinking for yourselves... and you go on to perpetuate those lies making yourselves look like a$$holes.

And again... considering how many news outlets, tabloids, and just water cooler talk there was about what Phil said... what the fvck would she have to have read the article to have an opinion?
