Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin often bypasses traditional media in favor of social media when she wants to send a message to her supporters, but every once in a while, she still has to correct the record.
Coulter's tweet read, "MY NEW CHURCH!" and linked to a photo of "The Blood of Jesus ATLAH World Missionary Church." A sign in the image read, "The blood of Jesus against Obama History made 4 Nov 2008 a Taliban Muslim illegally elected president USA: Hussein."
However, Palin told ABC News that she did not purposefully "favorite" Coulter's tweet.
"I had to go back to my BlackBerry to even see if such a function was possible," she said. "I was traveling to Alaska that day...it was an obvious accidental 'favoriting,' but no one can mistake that Ann Coulter was obviously being tongue in cheek with that Tweet. 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 shake up of power in the U.S. House of Representatives?)."
