I’m glad I wasn’t playing a drinking game last night. If I’d had a shot of Patron for every time Sarah Palin said “maverick,” I’d be getting treated for alcohol poisoning this morning.
It was fascinating watching her rework the debate, blatantly ignoring questions she wouldn’t (or couldn’t) answer, and answering questions that hadn’t been asked. One thing is clear: she’s slipperier than moose shit in the spring thaw.
It’s definitely cringe-worthy to hear her (and McCain in his written interview) referring to the gay “friends” they know. Gov. Palin talking about her “very diverse” family. Let’s organize a queer search party! She might be keeping a gay aunt locked in the closet!
But seriously folks… take a moment this morning and watch this video from the Human Rights Campaign about Sarah Palin’s gay “friends”
And, a big shout-out to the HRC: I appreciate ya’ll going to Wasilla, so I’ll never have to. You took the bullet on that one.
