SARAH PALIN SUPPORTS GAY MARRIAGE!?
One well-dressed man in his thirties, looking very much like a Republican delegate and later identifying himself as an Alaskan, walked up and stood beside me, leaned forward to look at the sign and said, "Palin supports that. I know, I'm from Alaska." I guffawed, "She doesn't' even support domestic partner benefits." He said, "Yes she does." I said, "She stopped domestic partner benefits for state workers." He said, "Only three people signed up for that program." I said, "It's the principle." He reiterated that he is absolutely sure Palin supports gay marriage. I expressed more disbelief and he said, "I'll go ask her." He crossed the street, went passed the police and into the Hilton. I stayed for another five minutes or so but my meter was running out so I had to go.
I think it would be pretty funny if she actually supports marriage equality. My, wouldn't that convention feel screwed by McCain?
Still, we have a lesbian friend, Amy, who used to live in Wasilla, AK and likes Palin. She told us of Palin, "She loves the gays." Hmmmmm.
