The political buzz is a stirrin’over John McCain’s vice presidential running mate, Sarah Palin. While the country is pretty much caught up on her lack of government experience, scandalous teenage daughter and oily intentions, one topic that hasn’t been covered so efficiently is her love for hunting. And this isn’t just like a once in a while kind of hunting — no, this is like serious business, shoot em up, go frigin wild kind of hunting.
Newsweek reported that Palin is “a lifelong hunter and strong proponent of Second Amendment rights.” As a member of the NRA, she has been quoted saying, “We hunt as much as we can, and I’m proud to say our freezer is full of wild game we harvested here in Alaska.” And the serial-killing intentions run in the family too! It turns out her own parents had just returned from hunting caribou when they discovered that she had been tapped as Sen. John McCain’s running mate. WOW!
Sounds to me like Mrs. Palin is about 3 seconds away from getting herself a total PETA smackdown. What do you think? Will Palin’s gun fetish turn you into an Obama supporter? Chime in and tell us what you think!
