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?
