GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: First, the sizzling political controversy over a fast food chain. Chick-Fil-A is at the center of a political storm. Why? Well, the company's president openly opposes gay marriage, Dan Cathy saying gay marriage invites God's judgment on our nation.
And then came the responses, mayors of several cities recently banning Chick-fil-A. There's also an on-line petition to boycott the chain. But now the counter-protest begins, some conservative political_leaders urging people to support the restaurant chain, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin even tweeting photos of herself and her husband, Todd, at a Texas Chick-fil-A.
Governor Palin joins us. Good evening, Governor.
SARAH PALIN, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR/FORMER ALASKA GOVERNOR: How are you, Greta? Welcome home.
VAN SUSTEREN: Thank you. It's nice to be home. I'm a little sleep- deprived, but I'm always delighted to be home.
Let me start with this Chick-Fil-A and the picture of you and Todd. I'm curious, are you jumping into this because of the cause or because of the response by some, and most notably some mayors calling for a boycott?
PALIN: Well, that calling for the boycott is a real -- has a chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights. And the owner of the Chick-fil-A business had merely voiced his personal opinion about supporting traditional definition of marriage, one boy, one girl, falling in love, getting married. And having voiced support for kind of that cornerstone of all civilization and all religions since the beginning of time, he then basically getting crucified.
I'm speaking up for him and his 1st Amendment rights and anybody else who would wish to express their not anti-gay people sentiment, but their support of traditional_marriage, which President Obama and Joe Biden, they both supported the exact same thing until just a few months ago...

ahhh ... good
I feel that Cheney is living in a daydream world.
Yes, Palin is right! She was listening and answered the call of her time...did it work for what some expected? ha, It worked for destiny! She has a calling and listened...Who can claim that in these days of callings...Dick Cheney...Na, don’t think so!
He did get a new physical heart out of it...hopefully, he will recieve a new spiritual heart!
>>I feel that Cheney is living in a daydream world.
Perhaps that heart donor was a liberal? ;-)
Cheney really screwed the pooch on this one...people keep underestimating palins support base
Either these statements are contradictory, or I'm once again having a difficult time understanding Palinese...?
She’s just smoking hot.
I could watch her talk all day and never get bored.
The fix was in for McCain.
I know JFK made his brother attorney general, but would Dubya actually have picked Jeb for VP in 2004?
It’s not like she shot anyone on accident /s
We DVR “Greta”, so I got to see this. Palin was brilliant in her response to Cheney. Loved it.
Either these statements are contradictory....
How is it contradictory? She is saying that she would like to see a national dialogue, which means discussion not legislation. The definition of marriage, she maintains, is solely in the hands of each state.
Let me start with this Chick-Fil-A and the picture of you and Todd. I'm curious, are you jumping into this because of the cause or because of the response by some, and most notably some mayors calling for a boycott?Um...no. Wrong. In "mumbles" Menino's case, the scumbag mayor hreatend to subvert the permitting process to deny CFA access to the Boston market. Violation of rights under color of authority.
