Palin Takes on PETA

Up tonight on TLC’s Sarah Palin’s Alaska: the former governor is waging war on “anti-hunting hypocrisy.”

“See how we fill our freezers and feed our families with home-grown tundra-roaming Alaskan wild game,” wrote Palin on Facebook.  “And, PETA, please remember: Alaskans eat, therefore we hunt.”

She also indicated that the episode would showcase the potential for oil drilling in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.  “You’ll also see us hunting at the edge of ANWR,” Palin promised,  “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.”

And for anyone who considers hunting “controversial,” Palin had this message: “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.”
