Does Palin Support DADT Repeal?

In a retweet last night, Sarah Palin suggested that she supports repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Palin retweeted this message from gay conservative Tammy Bruce: “But this hypocrisy is just truly too much. Enuf already–the more someone complains about the homos the more we should look under their bed.” Before tweeting that, Bruce was tweeting about the video made a Navy officer that included gay slurs and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Following Palin’s retweet, Bruce tweeted, “So, @SarahPalinUSA RT’s something that stands w gays re DADT and is supportive in general, what r the odds the LSM will try to ignore?” That tweet was retweeted, without additional comment, by Palin aide Rebecca Mansour.
