Palin Twitter Photo: Her Email to ABC News

No one really noticed when Ann Coulter sent a photo to her Twitter followers of a church with a sign in front of it that read, “The blood of Jesus against Obama history made 4 Nov 2008 a Taliban Muslim illegally elected president USA: Hussein.” But The Washington Post, ABC News, and New York magazine reported when Sarah Palin chose to “favorite” Coulter’s post. Asked for comment, Palin emailed ABC’s Jake Tapper: “Jake, I've never purposefully ‘favorited’ any Tweet. I had to go back to my BlackBerry to even see if such a function was possible. I was traveling to Alaska that day...it was an obvious accidental ‘favoriting.’” She said Coulter was “obviously being tongue in cheek” and added: “Shall I correct this with whichever wonderful media outlet ran with this (an obviously bored reporter...since there must be nothing going on in the world today, like, um, ramifications of a shakeup of power in the U.S. House of Representatives?).”
