We've all been sitting here with bated breath waiting to hear what reality star Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, has to say about the whole “Duck Dynasty” debate, and now our patience has finally paid off.

“Everyone needs to leave Phil Robertson alone for expressing his beliefs,” she wrote in her blog. “I think it's so hypocritical how the LGBT community expects every single flippen person to agree with their life style… I hate how the LGBT community says it's all about 'love' and 'equality.' However, if you don't agree with their lifestyle, they spread the most hate. It's so hypocritical it makes my stomach turn.”

Sorry to hear that. Why don't you take a Rolaids?

QUICK TAKES

Despite an A&E suspension, “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson will in fact be appearing in episodes next season.

Kanye West tried to smooth over accusations that he's anti-Semitic by saying, “I don't know how being told you have money is like an insult.” Glad he cleared that up.

Casey Kasem's family reached an agreement in their contentious conservatorship case about the ailing DJ, though details have not been released.

Tom Cruise won his libel suit against Life & Style magazine. Though the settlement was sealed, the star had sued for $50 million after being accused of “abandoning” his child after his divorce from Katie Holmes.

49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is 50.

Actress Susan Lucci (“All My Children”) is 67.

Actor Harry Shearer (“The Simpsons”) is 70.

Guitarist Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane is 73.
