He then sends it in a tweet.
Ann Coulter, sarcastically replies
And now Twitter is all a flutter and the media is in deathcon five Palin Derangement Syndrome mode.
Why? Because they found this under her *favorites* on Twitter.
You've gotta love this one:
However, there may be one click that she may live to regret when she apparently endorsed a tweet containing a picture of a sign calling President Obama a "Taliban Muslim Illegally Elected President".She *endorsed* the tweet...? Good gawd.
Sarah Palin recently "favorited" an Ann Coulter tweet that linked to a picture of a sign about "The blood of Jesus against Obama," our "Taliban Muslim illegally elected President USA: Hussein." This might be awkward if she runs for president!Or this completely dishonest post, by the #1 deranged Palin hater:
A Sarah Palin ‘Favored’ Tweet…May Be Racist Against Obama?And no where, in any of those "news stories" or blog posts did they mention that the tweet originated from Mark Lamont Hill, who is African American. Or that the photo is from Pastor Manning, who is an African American pastor of a Black church.
Sarah Palin’s Twitter is getting her in trouble again. Palin recently favorited a Tweet from Ann Coulter that included a questionable picture.
So, your typical Birther stuff. Also your typical Ann Coulter stuff, but generally speaking probably the sort of line of opposition Sarah Palin, er, wants to stay away from. Far way. In all begrudging fairness, a) Sarah Palin may not actually run her Twitter account (though her refudiating suggests she does) and b) Favoriting can happen by accident (she did not RT). Either way! Probably a good time to unfavorite! What is funny for Ann Coulter is not funny for someone who enjoys leading people to believe she might be running for President. Actually, it’s mostly just stupid.
Nope, just that "Sarah Palin's 'Favorite' Tweet Is About Our 'Taliban Muslim Illegally Elected President'"
This apparently created such a firestorm that Palin had to *refudiate* tweet-gate.
Exclusive: Palin Emails ABC News to Push Back on 'Taliban Muslim' Twitter Controversy
“Jake, I've never purposefully ‘favorited’ any Tweet. I had to go back to my BlackBerry to even see if such a function was possible. I was traveling to Alaska that day...it was an obvious accidental ‘favoriting,’ but no one can mistake that Ann Coulter was obviously being tongue in cheek with that Tweet. Shall I correct this with whichever wonderful media outlet ran with this (an obviously bored reporter...since there must be nothing going on in the world today, like, um, ramifications of a shake up of power in the U.S. House of Representatives?).”Meanwhile, I'd like to know where the media outrage is over this:
Nothing? Central American Dictator or bad Cuban stereotypes? How about this? CBS and AP Photoshop Racist Picture of Obama No?
How about this?
Top socialist-democrat Raul Grijalva knew he’d be in a close race with rocket scientist Republican Ruth McClung. Since he didn’t have anything on McClung, like a true democrat, he resorted to lies and smears.
To secure his votes with Hispanics he sent out this racist “white bread” mailer to constituents just days before the election.
Apparently it's only outrageously racist when Sarah Palin *favorites* a tweet sent by a black dude.
