Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has the pundits wondering what's her angle in re-tweeting Tammy Bruce's pro-gay message.

On Monday, Palin passed along to her more than 350,000 followers Bruce's original tweet: “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.”

Bruce immediately praised the development as a signal that the former Alaska governor is gay friendly.

“I think @SarahPalinUSA RT my tweet is her first comment on DADT, treatment of gays & attempts to marginalize us – thank you Governor,” Bruce tweeted.

“She's a decent woman & friend to the community,” she added. “I think we homos may have to get an additional honorary disco ball – unless @SarahPalinUSA & @AnnCoulter are willing to fight over it.”

Bruce is a gay Republican who serves in a leadership position in the gay GOP group GOProud.

Last year, conservative celebrity Ann Coulter agreed to speak at the group's annual gathering of gay conservatives, but she rankled some in the crowd when she said gay folks are not entitled to marry.

Palin also enjoys a similar rocky relationship with gay Republicans, who insist she's gay friendly.

But Palin has supported many anti-gay candidates, spoken at gatherings sponsored by anti-gay groups and tweeted support for rabidly homophobic pastor James David Manning, who insists gays should be called “fags.”
