You can only "murder" people, and perhaps dogs. Killing wildlife is considered "hunting".

"So why did....?"

Because she's a big fake.

She tells you what she wants you to know about her. She wants to control your perception of her. Why do you think she only interviews with the converted? Her books, her show, her appearances at rallies - all what Sarah Palin wants you to know about her. A big, fake, projected image.

I look forward to her blaming the liberal media when TLC refuses to air her show during the next pre-election period.

there's a billboard around here for the local talk radio channel simply says "liberals hate us!" that is their slogan apparently. not "we give interesting insights on today's events" or "we bringing you news you can use." "liberals hate us!" is what they would prefer to be known for.

At this point I just have to shake my head and sigh. I can't muster up the outrage for something so painfully common and ridiculous.

But as with most Palin fantasies only gingerly related to planet earth, there are some discrepancies that even Palin's control of the editing cannot quite remove. We are obviously supposed in the latest episode, for example, to imagine Sarah heading out with daddy Chuck every season for some huntin', bein' an expert at shootin' a gun, revealin' her years of expertise and training in the wild north as an all-round MILFy mama grizzly from the wilderness.

So why did her dad rather touchingly finish the trip by saying, "It's been great to meet you again"? Why did she not know if the gun her dad gave her would kick back? Why did she then seem unable to shoot even close to the caribou when dutifully set up by her dad and his hunting side-kick? Who can say?


ZOMG you caught on to her ruse! palin's political career is surely over after this revelation - fantastic work, the atlantic!

This is why people laugh when someone says Sarah Palin is a strong leader. She's a flash in the pan hack whose entire shtick is pissing off liberals, and that's a winning hand - if you're a pundit. Being an actual leader is quite a bit different. You have to serve out your elected term, for instance. And know something about current events. You let your lackeys handle the confrontational stuff. Lackeys like... Sarah Palin.

Having watched this show, she is either a really good actress, or certifiably insane.

Both are qualifications for leadership in this world. You have to be crazy to want that job, and be able to act well.

I didn't know other people use it as a lead-in to TWD too. Awesome.

I was particularly impressed last night by how she can draw parallels between her old man's work ethic and her own without ruining the take.

I love watching SPA because it's just like Swamp People with differnt accents. When you watch it with that attitude its hilarious and tragic all at the same time. Damn I miss Swmp People

Two points:

1. From what I've heard, any sportsman who watches this show can clearly see that Sarah Palin doesn't know a damn thing about hunting or the outdoors.

2. If you hunt for food, that is not "murder." You cannot argue that a suburbanite who drives right up to a grocery store to buy meat pre-killed and packaged for them is more ethical than a hunter who hikes into the wilderness for a week, stalks and kills an animal, quarters it, packs it out and feeds his family with it for the rest of the winter. If you are a meat eater, there is no more ethical way to get your meat than to head into the backcountry to (legally) get it yourself.

Considering that Vanity Fair piece a few months back, seems she's a bit of both. The interviewer was clear in the fact that she is an absolute witch when the camera is off.

not even close.

an unborn child isn't born and therefore not alive so there's no way a child who isn't alive can be murdered. it's a fact.

Nice to see Andrew Sullivan is still hating on Sarah Palin. Is he still pushing the Trig pregnancy stupidity? I pretty much quit reading him when he wouldn't give that bullshiat a rest, and I can't stand Palin.

Really? Pretty sure there are quite a few states where if a pregnant woman gets murdered, her killer can be charged with multiple homicides - ergo, the "unborn child" must be alive; how can you kill something that isn't alive?

Laws don't have to be constitutional to be passed by simple majorities. Your "ergo" is fatally flawed.

I haven't seen the show, but watched the video in TFA. Not surprisingly, the first statement in the video is a false premise. Sarah doesn't live "four or five hundred miles away" from the nearest grocery store. I have nothing against hunting, and I hunt elk almost every year. But I don't pretend that it's because I have no other source of food.

/d@mn, that biatch is annoying

McManus_brothers: Is he still pushing the Trig pregnancy stupidity?



You mean is he still questioning her absurd and completely unbelievable story about Trig's birth, which she refused to verify through her medical records?

Sullivan isn't claiming the child isn't hers, but if you believe the whole "my water broke, then I gave a speech, then I flew across the country back to my shiat-kicker town to give birth to my special-needs child" story, you are a f*cking idiot. And the fact that she refused to release her medical records, as Obama, Biden and McCain all did, is further proof that she made the story up.

Since she has a reality TV show and her daughter was on Dancing With the Stars, I vote all Palin threads should have to be under the Showbix tab and off the Politics tab.

As soon as I saw her pop that caribou last night I knew this would make for some great liberal WHARGARBL. So far, not disappointed.
 
2010-12-06 06:16:11 PM  
Flying a chartered plane umpteen hundreds of miles in order to shoot an elk is not subsistence hunting. Or, that's not how it seems to me. I'm a lie-btard, after all.

Aside from anything said in this thread by folks with limited followings, could you provide a legitimate example? Palin's Twitter feed seems to reference an outrage directed at hunting that I have yet to see.

You mean when she quit as Governor?
Or when people elected a black man to keep her out of office?
Or the time she said we will defend our ally, North Korea?

Sarah Palin makes George Bush look smooooooth :)

Actually, under Alaska law, there is a crime called "Murder of an unborn child."

Of course, it can't be enforced if the mother consents to the murder. That's because the Supreme Court found penumbras and emanations in the constitution that give mothers the constitutional right to murder their unborn children.

Great , I was getting into this threat and here comes: More Deep Thoughts from Skinnyhead. And of course he's off-topic as usual.
