Half-term governor of Alaska Sarah Palin spoke with an MSNBC reporter about sexual harassment in the workplace and she explained that she has never personally experienced it because everyone knows she carries a gun.
Palin spoke with the reporter when she was on her way to meet with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky).
“I think a whole lot of people know I’m probably packing so I don’t think there’s a whole lot of people who would necessarily mess with me,” Palin said.

“I don’t mean to be lighthearted, this is a serious issue,” Palin continued. “It really stinks for women in the workplace that for too long, men have thought they can get away with that old-school thinking that it’s okay to belittle and harass women.”
“It’s not a partisan issue,” Palin said Thursday. “When we see this happening today, I think it leads to a lot of questions about what standards are going to be applied to whom.”
Sen. Al Franken, for his part, did call for an investigation and apologized to his accuser, who then, in turn, accepted his apology. Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has only lashed out at his accusers and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell for saying he believes the women. Moore’s accusers explained that the sexual misconduct happened when they were teenagers, one as young as 14-years-old.
To be clear, any form of sexual harassment is wrong but perving on teenagers is beyond the pale. We agree with Palin that it should not be a ‘partisan’ issue, but it is in Alabama right now. And it is with her pal Sean Hannity. As for her gun, shooting someone who sexually harasses you without feeling your life is being threatened will get you a prison sentence and you’ll never be able to own a firearm again. We’ll just take that as Sarah giving a shout out to the NRA.
