More on Palin and DADT

More speculation on Sarah Palin’s position on DADT:

Sometimes a rose is just a rose – but that doesn’t tell us anything about what Sarah Palin’s tweets mean.

The former Alaska governor is famous for using Twitter to muse and zing and occasionally make news in 140 characters or less. This week, she did it by sending out a post from an openly gay talk radio host criticizing opponents of the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

But what does it mean? Does Palin, who has spent the better part of two years cultivating her popularity with conservative Republicans, support allowing openly gay men and women to serve in the armed forces? And if so, what is she playing at?

Yes, she’s an idiot. But she’s also a powerful leader in the GOP. This is important.
