It took only two brief tweets for Sarah Palin to become the most militant defender of embattled radio-show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger. In light of the backlash to the host's recent, bizarrely incendiary show in which she dispensed N-word-heavy relationship advice to a caller, Palin quickly decided to tweet, "Dr. Laura: don't retreat...reload!" She then followed it up with a longer tweet saying that Dr. Laura would be "even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out Constitutional obstructionists..."
Wednesday was a busy day on twitter for Palin, who also mused about the "hijacking" of the word "feminist" by using the words "cackles of rads" to make her point.
Dr.Laura:don't retreat...reload! (Steps aside bc her 1st Amend.rights ceased 2exist thx 2activists trying 2silence"isn't American,not fair")
Dr.Laura=even more powerful & effective w/out the shackles, so watch out Constitutional obstructionists. And b thankful 4 her voice,America!
