The conservative pundit retweets a statement in support of gay rights  — is the radical republican actually supporting the cause or just making amends for daughter Willow’s homophobic slur?

Willow Palin made headlines with her now infamous homophobic slur, labeling someone who criticized Sarah Palin’s Alaska as a f**got, and it appears mom Sarah Palin may be trying to make amends with a surprisingly pro-gay tweet! The republican talking head, who has never really weighed in on most gay issues, retweeted on Jan. 3: “But this hypocrisy is just truly too much. Enuf already–the more someone complains about the homos the more we should look under their bed.”

The original tweet came from Tammy Bruce, a well known lesbian conservative talk show host. Given her daughter’s situation, it certainly helps that Sarah, who most would assume is perhaps not the most gay friendly of politicians, is criticizing those who attack homosexuals — especially to her over 350,000 followers.

The tweet has gained major traction, with some believing this could be Sarah throwing her support behind President Obama’s recent repeal of “don’t ask don’t Tell!”

What do you think about Sarah’s retweet — casting her support for gay rights or trying to apologize for Willow’s insensitive remark?

She is definitely not supporting gay rights. She’s being wise and knows that criticizing homosexuals ain’t good.

It’s all about her political run.
Her ‘so called’ reality show, Bristols DWTS, and her books are all to convince the public like she is just like them. Bristol setting up a home base in the lower 48 and in a tea party friendly state. It’s all about the political ambition.
This is just another ploy to win votes.

I doubt very seriously that she meant this as a pro Gay tweet. The Sarah that I have heard so much about partially read the tweet and was thinking selfishly about her own situation and how people critic her and failed to consider the implication of the message she was sending.
