Do progressives think meat grows on trees?
A "trigger-happy" Sarah Palin "gunned down" a caribou, according to the Left, on her eponymous TLC show about her adventures in Alaska. Her critics must think that it's possible to get meat from an animal without killing it.
There's no difference between killing food in a slaughterhouse or shooting it on the tundra. It's just more upfront Sarah Palin's way, where you can see the moment the furry animal dies. Oddly, the Left is mute about 42 million aborted infants--maybe because they die behind closed doors just like the cattle that end up in our refrigerators, so the messy process can be ignored.
Only the demise of cute, furry animals gets the Left's dander up
Aaron Sorkin of The Social Network fame responded to Palin's defense of her carnivorous appetites.
"Unless you've never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather chair or eaten meat, save your condemnation."
You're right, Sarah, we'll all just go f**k ourselves now.
The snotty quote was posted by Sarah Palin on (like all the great frontier women who've come before her) her Facebook page to respond to the criticism she knew and hoped would be coming after she hunted, killed and carved up a Caribou during a segment of her truly awful reality show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, broadcast on The-Now-Hilariously-Titled Learning Channel.
So angry...Sorkin went on to say that Palin's show is a "snuff film" where she relished "torturing animals."
Does it sound like Sorkin is a bit out of touch with the real world?
Of the progressives that were offended by Palin's hunting display, Maureen Down stands out as one of the more hysterical commentators.
The poor caribou in the Arctic Circle, a cousin to Santa's reindeer, had to die so Palin could show off her toughness to voters and try to boost ratings on her show that have slipped since its premiere.
Sarah Palin killed Rudolph. Nice.
I have a feeling Dowd would be upset at Palin if she picked vegetables in her garden for a salad. In the same screed about Palin's show, Dowd writes:
The female caribou could easily have escaped, since it took the Wasilla huntress six shots, two rifles and some help from her dad to bag her prey.
So Dowd is critical that Palin is a bad shot, yet she complains when Palin hits her mark and kills the animal. Can Palin do nothing right?
Yes, and Obama can do nothing wrong. Dowd ties Rudolph's fate to the tax cut deal Obama reached with Republicans.
The caribou that waited too pliantly in the cross hairs is doomed to become stew for Palin and an allegory for politics. The elegant animal standing above the fray, dithering rather than charging at his foes or outmaneuvering them, is Obambi. Even with a rifle aimed at him, he's trying to be the most reasonable mammal in the scene, mammalian bipartisan, and rise above what he sees as empty distinctions between the species so that we can all unite at a higher level of being.
OK...so Palin kills Rudolph and Bambi but Obama is Jesus Christ reincarnate? Is anyone influenced by Dowd?
The Left would gladly ritually sacrifice a caribou--or a hundred--if that could get rid of Sarah Palin. They don't care about the animals--they just hate Palin and everything she does.
