''One of the reasons I'm strongly for Palin is because the Democrats in Alaska are assholes. And half of the stuff that the media has reported about Palin that's negative was perpetrated by that small group of assholes.... Palin keeps her politics separate from her beliefs--her personal values, her religion, all of that.... I blame [her endorsement for a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage] on the Mormons. They drove that campaign up here. That was one of the most [divisive] battles I've ever seen. But the amendment was very popular, you know, with voters up here.... I don't expect Sarah Palin to be the vanguard of the liberal elite on that issue. She's practical. She's not going to take on battles that she can't win.''
Sex columnist and writer Dan Savage speaking with an ''SPGF,'' an unnamed male who claims he has been Sarah Paliln's Gay Friend since 2006. It's not entirely clear who this person is because Palin did not appear to mention this particular 36-year-old man, but instead, did mention a female best friend of 30 years who made the choice to be gay. In the Savage interview, SPGF defends Palin at every turn including the prayer video with the witch-hunting pastor, and says John McCain is pro-gay or gay-tolerant because he went on 'Ellen.' Savage, however, seems to indicate a sense of delusion during his interview with SPGF by writing that ''our conversation jumped the rest of the way through the looking glass.''
