The always press hungry Sarah Palin took to her facebook page to promote her reality show ‘Sarah Palin’s Oil Depot.’ Okay, that’s just what I call the show. The real name is ‘Sarah Palin’s Alaska.’

In last night’s episode Palin went caribou hunting with her father. Sarah said on her facebook page about the untouched beauty of her home state:

“You’ll also see us hunting at the edge of ANWR, where you can see the uninhabited lands that warehouse billions of barrels of American energy supplies underground just waiting for the political will to allow responsible resource development.”

On the actual episode, she defends herself as a hunter by saying, “We don’t have the advantage. The animals have the advantage.” Really? The animals have the advantage? Because we thought you were the one with the gun. Perhaps that caribou has a .45 strapped to his antlers.

Palin also calls out PETA on her facebook page. Perhaps trying to start a war of words?

“We’ll show you how Alaskans hunt. As my friend Sue says, “the tundra is the type of landscape that will make a man out of anybody.” And, PETA…”

We wonder if PETA will respond.

    Sarah Palin will be glad to know then that a lot of deer and US Elk are becoming infected with Mad Cow disease and since no one inspect that… well what goes around comes around…

  • crumpets are yummy

    I think Alaska has been infected with mad cow…her name is Sarah Palin.

    Who do you blame for something like this, God?

  • Chris

    This woman makes me sick!!!!!

    • Rachelle

      Ditto. And here’s hoping that one day the caribou/animals DO have the advantage. LOL!

    Palin might be suprised but PETA doesnt have any campaign against hunting, and actually i never did hear of any campaign against hunt-and-eat-what-you-killed kind of hunter. The only campaigns against hunts are against canned hunts (animals, often half tame, in an exclosure, waiting to be killed by a trophy hunter),against hunting endangered animals, and cruel hunting methods like hunting with packs of hounds and aerial hunting.
    Palin just wants to score with a tough attitude agianst Peta. Hope they are smart enough not to give her that pleasure of a media fight.

      Well they might not have a ‘campaign’ against hunting, but they do oppose hunting and encourage people to post their land “No Hunting”, not no sport hunting or only hunt-and-eat-what-you-kill hunting but NO HUNTING.”

      “To combat hunting in your area, post “no hunting” signs on your land, join or form an anti-hunting organization, protest organized hunts, and spread deer repellent or human hair (from barber shops) near hunting areas.”

      And they contrast themselves against other organizations.

      “Before you support a “wildlife” or “conservation” group, ask about its position on hunting. Groups such as the National Wildlife Federation, the National Audubon Society, the Sierra Club, the Izaak Walton League, the Wilderness Society, and the World Wildlife Fund are pro–sport-hunting, or at the very least, they do not oppose it.”

      “Encourage your legislators to enact or enforce wildlife-protection laws, and insist that nonhunters be equally represented on the staffs of wildlife agencies.”

      Not non-sport-hunters but nonhunters.

      I think that makes it pretty clear that PETA is against all hunting whether they have a ‘Campaign’ or not.

    Well, sorry about the caribou, but too bad. I’m actually glad she’s got a TV show. As someone who wants every conservative politician in America to be sent to the unemployment line, Sarah Palin is pure gold. She is such an obvious and relentless tool that every time she does anything for public consumption, the donations have to be rolling in to the Democratic Party and the more liberal candidates. At some point the Neo-Cons and Teabaggers will realize that she is doing much more harm than good. Until then, roll Sarah, roll.

  • Lars Svensen

    Super Sarah Palin is quickly becoming a social & cultural icon, a legend in her time. Fakers who visit Olive Garden & Red Lobster, who carry Gucci handbags & wear Jimmy Choo shoes, should really sit down & shut up.

    • herwin

      Lars, i couldnt agree with you more, Palin is a cultural icon just like Mickey Mouse, Paris Hilton, and the McDonalds logo ! Her latest cry for the assasination of Wikileaks founder Assange is totally in line with her tougher-than-tough-american-gal cartoon image, good for her ! Her future will be like all those other icons ; in the tabloids, printed on T-shirts and coffeemugs, presenting documentaries and infomercials, etc. But her changes for running for president are just zero, because she is just too controversial, too dumb and too loud.

  • Vote_for_Pedro

    and this is the woman who could possible be our pres in 2012. I will give up my american citizenship if she ever gets in to office. This is a dispicable human being. Trashy!

    • Rachelle

      I think you’re safe–cuz even top Republicans don’t want her in the oval office–and I bet they’ll start to sabotage her as soon as 2011.

      • georgina

        I’ll move back to my country of origin if Palin wins it in 2012!

  • BenCat1000

    This man-hag Palin: toting a gun to hunt down vegetarian animals trying to survive against the natural predators, actually uses the sentence: responsible resource development? Does he/she even listen to what is coming out of the pie-hole? Is he/she for real? That is some form of crazy, unknown to the human race.

  • crumpets are yummy

    “You’ll also see us hunting at the edge of ANWR, where you can see the uninhabited lands that warehouse billions of barrels of American energy supplies underground just waiting for the political will to allow responsible resource development.”

    Show me *responsible resource development* of oil reserves and ill show you the gulf of Mexico.

    You obviously wanted to write a hate Palin piece, and by the way it was a Caribou and not a Moose. The fact that you’re ok with someone else; killing your meat source to make you feel better about eating it, shows you to be a hypocrite. The episode showed the harvesting of an animal that was also butchered and wrapped for their freezer. Eating wild game that you, harvest for your family is better protein than the juiced meat in your local grocery store. By the way that steak you eat from your local grocery store had no chance to escape its fate; hunting is not for the majority of hunters, a high success activity. This is why it’s called hunting and not killing, and also why when successful most are happy and thankful as well.

    Palin is using this opportunity to show America all she has to offer. And it’s every bit as little as we expected.
