Meaning of Palin “retweet” of Bruce remark still unclear
As of this morning, Amy Gardner in the Washington Post is speculating as to what Sarah Palin meant to convey by “retweeting” Tammy Bruce’s thuggish remark that anyone who forcefully opposes homosexuality in the military is really a secret homosexual and should be exposed as such (see my post yesterday on this). Which means that Palin herself has not yet issued any clarification regarding her apparently approving quotation of Bruce. But now that I think about it, who would pressure her to do so? Liberals would welcome any sign that Palin is on their side, and so wouldn’t question it, while Palin’s supporters would be loath to press her on an issue that could damage her supposedly conservative credentials. The only people who might actually care are conservatives who staunchly and vocally oppose the homosexualization of the military, and, as we have seen since December 18, such conservatives are in a small minority. So it’s possible that Palin may never have to answer for this odd posting.
