It would seem so after the former Alaska governor rushed to defend talk radio antagonist Dr. Laura, who announced she’s leaving her long-running radio show, presumably so she can insult an entire race of people with impunity whenever she feels like it.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger stirred up controversy when she repeatedly uttered the N-word to a black caller during her radio show on August 10. She later apologized, but Palin stoked the fires of controversy once again when she took to her Twitter page and tweeted:

“Dr. Laura: don’t retreat: reload! (Steps aside because her first amendment rights ceased to exist thanks to activists trying to silence. Isn’t American, not fair)”

It’s obvious that Palin’s cloudy judgment confuses ignorance and racial insensitivity with Dr. Laura’s inalienable rights to freedom of expression.

“Does anyone seriously believe that Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a racist?” Palin asked in a post on her Facebook page. “Anyone, I mean, who isn’t already accusing all conservatives, Republicans, Tea Party Americans, etc., etc., etc. of being racists?”

Dr. Laura and Sarah Palin prove that even high profile rednecks often blur the boundaries of human decency.
