Sarah Palin admits she never read the Phil Robertson interview she defended

Well, this should come as no surprise.

Sarah Palin, the former half-term governor of Alaska, made an appearance on Greta Van Susteren’s show last night to talk about the endangered species that is “free speech,” and the Duck Dynasty debacle.

It turns out Ms. Palin, who jumped at the chance to stand up for Phil Robertson and his comments comparing homosexuality and bestiality, had never even read the interview.

When pressed by Fox News host Greta Van Susteren whether the language Robertson used when talking about his opposition to homosexuality was graphic and offensive, Palin admitted she didn’t know what Robertson had said.

“I haven’t read the article. I don’t know exactly how he said it,” Palin said Monday on Fox News’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

After the GQ interview was published, Palin immediately came to Robertson’s defense by posting a statement on Facebook saying it was an issue of free speech and defended his comments in a TV appearance with Sean Hannity.

“I defend what he said! What did he say?”

Priceless.
