Sarah Palin fell all over herself to defend Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson, of the homosexuals-are-the-same-as-terrorists and the-blacks-were-better-off-when-they-were-picking-cotton fame, as soon as the palpable outrage of this racist, homophobic patriarch's comments hit the airwaves. Suddenly, the first amendment were applicable to private employers in her book, even after she herself pushed for Martin Bashir to get fired for offering his personal opinion.
But hey, you can't expect consistency from Sarah Palin or any of the other right wing teabaggers. Here's another thing you can't expect from Sarah Palin: reading. Turns out, more than five years after Katie Couric's "gotcha" question of what-do-you-read, Palin still hasn't picked up the habit.
When pressed by Fox News host Greta Van Susteren whether the language Robertson used when talking about his opposition to homosexuality was graphic and offensive, Palin admitted she didn’t know what Robertson had said.Of course, had she read Robertson's comments (assuming that she can read above the kindergarten level), I am sure her position wouldn't have changed. Because any other position would hurt her book sales.
“I haven’t read the article. I don’t know exactly how he said it,” Palin said Monday on Fox News’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”
Sarah Palin doesn't read, folks. She facebooks.
