In an interview yesterday discussing the military's USO line up for Iraq this year, Sarah Palin commented that she was "proud to be an American and a heterosexual," but that if she "ever were to, say, find myself stranded on a desert island with only female companionship, I'd have to say it'd be a toss up between k.d. lang and Joan Jett. But I think I'd have to choose America first and Ms. Jett has done a lot for our countries brave soldiers." Rachel Maddow and Melissa Etheridge eat your hearts out.
Fox news correspondent Bill O'Reilly stated, "I'd sure like to be a part of that ma'amwich," while Glenn Beck was outraged that Palin violated the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
HRC's, executive director, Joe Solmonese released a press release inviting Palin to be the keynote speaker at their newly announced "Gays, God, and Guns" gala fundraiser taking place on July 4th, in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia.
