Embattled Miss California Carrie Prejean certainly has her share of critics, but rest assured, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is firmly in her camp.
The 2008 GOP Vice Presidential nominee released a statement last night slamming "the liberal onslaught of malicious attacks" against Prejean, who first ignited controversy for coming out against same-sex marriage at last month's Miss USA pageant.
"I can relate, as a liberal target myself," Sarah Palin said.
"What I find so remarkable is that these politically-motivated attacks fail to show that what Carrie and I believe is also what President Obama and Secretary Clinton believe - marriage is between a man and a woman."
"I applaud Donald Trump for standing with Carrie during this time. And I respect Carrie for standing strong and staying true to herself, and not letting those who disagree with her deny her protection under the nation's First Amendment Rights."
DUMB AND DUMBER: Carrie Prejean has a new, high-profile political backer.
"Our Constitution protects us all - not just those who agree with the far left," the mother of Bristol Palin went on.
Amazingly, the governor of a U.S. state apparently does not realize that:
- She was only a "liberal target" because she was running for Vice President of the United States, and representing the other party.
- The First Amendment has nothing to do with being criticized for speaking one's mind; it simply protects one from being imprisoned for it.
- Prejean nearly lost her crown not for her gay marriage stance, but for violating the terms of her contract with a private organization.
- Prejean did not lose her crown! Rather, she received national acclaim, even becoming a hero to the National Marriage ... whatever it is.
Last week, Prejean's father, Will, told E! Online that Palin personally called him to voice support for his daughter, but didn't reveal any more details.
On Tuesday, Trump announced at a news conference that Prejean will keep her crown despite the release of semi-nude and topless photos that she blamed on the wind ... or Satan ... or liberals, or ... whatever, who the hell cares.
Miss California pageant director Shanna Moakler resigned her position a day later, saying she "no longer believes" in the Miss Universe organization. When Shanna Moakler is your new moral compass, you've got issues, Miss Universe.
