So I saw THIS post on Joe.My.God.

It’s in regards to Sarah Palin’s response to a Vanity Fair article on her. I don’t know what the Vanity Fair article said, and personally, I couldn’t care less.

Sarah Palin [& tall] said this:

“I don’t read some of it because I know that those who are impotent and limp and gutless, and then they go on, they’re anonymous, they’re sources that are anonymous, and impotent, limp, and gutless reporters take anonymous sources and cite them as being factual references.”

Then The Advocate, a renowned gay magazine, said this:

“Is Sarah Palin using code words to slam gay journalist Michael Joseph Gross, a frequent Advocatecontributor who wrote the much-buzzed-about profile of the former vice presidential nominee in this month’s Vanity Fair?

Palin didn’t mention Gross by name while talking Thursday on Sean Hannity’s WABC radio show, but she seemed to be referring to the article — and pointedly used emasculating words that have long been used as euphemisms for homosexuality — when she called reporters who publish “rumors” about her “impotent,” “limp,” and ‘gutless.'”

Now I say this:

1) What the hell is going on with Sarah Palin’s statement? Are any grammar rules followed there? It’s like a horrible stream of consciousness with random placed words and repetition. I actually find it somewhat painful to read…nonetheless, I digress…

2) When the hell did “impotent,” “limp,” and “gutless” become “euphemisms for homosexuality?! I mean…Urban Dictionary, where I just happen to get all of my definitions, says NOTHING about “impotent,” “limp,” and “gutless” meaning anything related to homosexuality. Actually, when you type in “gutless +gay” on google – guess what comes up?! THAT Advocate article! Gosh…It’s just…Here are the gays making a big deal out of EVERYTHING! I mean, “everything they do is so dramatic and flamboyant…It just makes me want to set myself on fire!” LISTEN

3) But seriously people – you know how some people (a large portion of people) feel every time Rev. Al Sharpton shows up demanding the resignation of someone or a feel-good payment for some remark that COULD possibly MAYBE be perceived as racist? Well, most people have learned to just ignore him, but it’s still just so RIDICULOUS…AS IS THIS!!! If Advocate hadn’t brought this up, it would be a NON-ISSUE, but instead it’s turning into a huge debate! When there’s a group of people fighting for equal rights, as we are doing and the blacks successfully did before us, the last thing we need is to receive negative publicity. The absolute last thing we need is the fabrication of such a story about someone beloved by so many of our opponents! Did it not occur to you that the people who love Sarah Palin so much are also the ones who are holding us back – can we please just not piss them off?

4) I’m sorry for saying this, but thinking that Sarah Palin came up with those 3 words that are relatively ambiguous but also happen to (apparently) be ancient euphemisms for homosexuality is giving her WAAAAAYYYYYYY too much credit….or have you just not seen THIS?

The fact is…I think The Advocate’s reaction to Palin’s sound-bite was a BIT off. Their response would’ve been warranted had she said something like: “I don’t read that diva shit, because I know that those faggot fairies are so gay with their limp wrists and gutless waistlines, and then they go on with their anonymous glitters, they’re sources that are fagilously anonymous and just SOOOoooOOOOoooo gay, and those, cream puffs – limp-wristed, and lavender reporters take anonymous sources from those homos and cite them as being factual references.”

But alas…she didn’t.

So stop your whiney-ass bitchin’ and definitely, please, I beg of you – stop giving her so much credit.

Post Script – Rev Al Sharpton, I will admit, has made some worthy fights and it is necessary to keep up to date on their continued progress. I am also aware that he has brought to light many instances of not only ambiguous racist phrases but also blatantly racist phrases which are absolutely unacceptable to say about our fellow citizens, and these instances most certainly needed to be dealt with. I may not agree with the way he goes about it in ways that, I believe, actually separate the races and often widen the gap even more, but nonetheless…everyone has their idea of the best way to do things.
