Sorkin Lashes Out at Palin

Sarah Palin and Michael Vick are two of a kind, writes screenwriter Aaron Sorkin in a mean-spirited screed on Huffington Post.

“You weren’t killing that animal for food or shelter or even fashion, you were killing it for fun,” Sorkin informs Palin. “You enjoy killing animals. … I can’t make a distinction between what you get paid to do and what Michael Vick went to prison for doing.”

He continues on to mock Palin for being “a phony pioneer girl,” (Sorkin’s ‘gotcha’: Palin writes Facebook notes — even though, aha!, Facebook wasn’t around when pioneering was trendy) for having make-up on while being filmed in the wilderness, and for murdering a moose for “political gain.”

According to Sorkin, all this makes Palin the “witless bully.”
