PETA Objects to "Sarah Palin's Alaska"

Palin Eating Tasty Animals:
It was only a matter of time before People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) responded to the fourth installment of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” that aired Sunday night.

In the episode, Palin went hunting in the Alaskan tundra and shot, killed and skinned a caribou with her father and family friend.

On Monday, PopEater printed a statement released by PETA Vice President Dan Mathews, who said, "Sarah seems to think that resorting to violence and blood and guts may lure people into watching her boring show. But the ratings remain as dead as the poor animals she shoots.” The show’s ratings have indeed fallen since its premiere, but with 3.5 million viewers last week, the program is hardly “dead.”

Of course, both the network and Palin knew that an episode about hunting would stir controversy. They had Ted Nugent talking about the merits of hunting on SPAlaska.com before the show aired, and Palin posted a message about her intolerance of the anti-hunting brigade on her Facebook wall. “Tonight’s hunting episode ‘controversial’?” Palin asked on Sunday. “Really? Unless you’ve never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather couch or eaten a piece of meat, save your condemnation of tonight’s episode. I remain proudly intolerant of anti-hunting hypocrisy.”

I was just thinking yesterday of an anecdote involving my dad and his involvement with these animal rights whackos.

He had been hunting with friends in the Catskill Mountains of New York. They had shot a deer, and did what all good hunters do: strapped the deer to the hood of the car. They were driving back to New York City, when they came to a rest stop. My dad stayed behind with the car.

Two women pulled up next to my dad. They get out, one woman sneers at him and says "You Bambi killer."

My dad, no doubt puffing away at a cigarette, responds, "So what are your views on abortion?"

Needless to say her response is not fit for a family blog.

I always loved that story - it showed that my dad was simply awesome, and it just demonstrates the whacked out priorities of these people.
