Does Sarah Palin have any gay friends?
She claimed she had gay friends back when she running for governor of Alaska in 2006. But no one has been able to find any of Sarah Palin’s gay friends. Did Sarah Palin lie about having gay friends? Looks that way. But why would this darling of the religious right lie about having gay friends? Palin probably figured that having gay friendsóor claiming to have gay friendsówould help her appeal to the kind of moderate voters turned off by gay-bashing religious batshits. So while Palin supports every last hateful position taken by the likes of James Dobson and Fred Phelps, she was able to point to her imaginary gay friends to prove to moderate voters that she doesn’t actually, you know, hate gay people herself. Hey, she can’t! She’s got gay friends! (It’s kind of like how John McCain has a gay chief of staff proves that he’s not anti-gay. He may take every anti-gay position imaginable, throw his lot in with the haters, and cast anti-gay votes at nearly every opportunity. But he’s not anti-gay, no sir!)
But you know what? I think Sarah Palin could probably use some gay friends about now. (Right now a gay friend would be telling Palin that Katie Couric is a total bitch.) And, hey, maybe if Sarah Palin had some real gay friends she might realize that she’s wrong about gay rights and gay marriage and gay adoption. So I made this video offering my friendship to Sarah Palin…
Do you want to be Sarah Palin’s gay friend too? Make a video explaining why you should be Sarah Palin’s gay friend, upload it to YouTube, send me the link, and I’ll post it on Slog. Sarah Palin may have been lying when she claimed to have gay friends back in 2006 but this is America, my friends, where we can make the lies come true! And Sarah “Thanks But No Thanks!” Palin has enough lies to keep track of without having to worry about that whopper she told Alaskans about having gay friends back in 2006.
So let’s help Sarah out! Let’s get her some gay friends! I’m in! Who else wants to be Sarah Palin’s gay friend?
