Palin’s Defenseless Caribou Snuff Film

In Palinography, Sarah Palin on 09/12/2010 at 01:40

Editor’s note: My latest articles are up on Yahoo Contributor Network. I have published several new ones in the last few days.  Thanks for checking them out.

I arose bright and early Monday morning expecting to find the blogosphere ablaze with anti-Palinites, aghast with her hunting expedition Sunday night on Sarah Palin’s Alaska. After the “snuff film” article in the Washington Post, about Palin’s Halibut fishing trip, I didn’t know quite what to expect.

But it took a couple of days for the whackjobs to come out of the woodwork.

That first day, I found one snide comment on CNN, something about the Governor shooting a freestanding caribou. I thought about commenting that only gangbangers have to be shot on the run, but decided to let it go.

Now The Daily Caller is reporting that Hollywood hack Aaron Sorkin (Charlie Wilson’s War) has compared Palin’s hunt above the Arctic Circle to Michael Vick’s killing of pit bulls by bashing their brains in. DC refers us to—yes, once again—the Washington Post, via the Huffington Post, for a report on Sorkin’s commentary.

Despite the fact that this light-in-the-loafers writer/producer doesn’t know the difference between a moose and a caribou, he obviously can’t distinguish between a man’s deranged cruelty to domestic pets and the hunting of wild game either. Or the fact that Plain’s caribou had five shots with which to make its escape.

“I’m in film and television, Cruella, and there was an insert close-up of your manicure while you were roughing it in God’s country,” gloats Sorkin, as if this gives him particular insight into the rugged outdoors. “I know exactly how many feet off camera your hair and make-up trailer was.”


Of course there was no makeup trailer. Which would be a disaster for this snitty little man who wouldn’t know how to use an outdoor potty at a rest stop. No, I’m not talking about the men’s room in Elysian Park; that he would probably know what to do with.

It’s hard to believe these nutcakes are actually being taken seriously in the mainstream press, but, once again, the Washington Post shows itself solidly in the running with the New York Times for Option B toilet paper.

If Palin does run for president, count on several “defenseless animals” questions to arise in the debates. Tom Brokaw: Some would say that clubbing a Halibut is in humane. Palin: Only if it’s done with a two-by-four, Tom. I use a Louisville Slugger.

  1. Hilarious and right on…these people are nuts….what do they think the Eskimos do? They don’t have a fancy market within blocks from them as i’m sure this nutcake does…..what is happening to us? By the way it’s nice organic meat….no additives or hormones :>)

  2. We’re men, we hunt, and if we’re real lucky, our women do too.
