Sarah Palin: My current arch-nemesis

Even if I agreed with Sarah Palin on more social issues, the knowledge that she supports aerial hunting of wolves and bears in Alaska would make me sick. (Sources: http://www.hsus.org/wildlife_abuse/news/aerial_hunting_alaska_082108.html, http://www.defendersactionfund.org/newsroom/sarah_palin.html, and http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/09/09/usnews/whispers/main4431199.shtml) I am in no way opposed to ethical, humane hunting methods. In fact, if I could hunt for my own meat, I would do it.

But aerial hunting is needlessly cruel. It's not sport, it's slaughter. Don't believe me? Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGPFPBmzRrQ

If you can't bear to watch it all the way through, then you shouldn't be voting for a person who endorses this practice. Collapse )
