Dan Savage, who writes the syndicated sex advice column "Savage Love," is reaching out to Sarah Palin to say: "I'd like to be your gay friend!"

Savage's offer: He'll teach the GOP vice-presidential nominee's kids about birth control, as their "cool gay uncle." In exchange, he's hoping that the governor of Alaska and Todd Palin, the "First Dude," can talk to his own son about God, and show the boy how to skin a moose. (Thanks to Feministing for the tip.) Here's Savage's YouTube invitation to Palin:
