The Claws Come Out! Aaron Sorkin Tears Sarah Palin To Shreds!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsPolitikSarah PalinReality TV

aaron-sorkin-attacks-sarah-palin-for-killing-caribou

This is literally AMAZING.

While channel-surfing this weekend, you may have stumbled across a little reality series known as Sarah Palin's Alaska, which features the Vice-Presidential candidate sashaying all over the state with various weapons, a whole lot of thinly-veiled right wing bullshit, but not even a fragment of self-awareness.

Sunday's episode involved Palin hunting and killing wild Alaskan Caribou, because as she explains, they were running low on their reserves, and since in Alaska there's not one grocery store for - and we quote - "200 or 300 miles," the only option they have up there is to kill their own food!

Well, it seems acclaimed writer Aaron Sorkin didn't take too kindly to the aforementioned episode, and wrote the following SCATHING response entitled In Her Defense, I'm Sure the Moose Had It Coming!

Please enjoy! It's pretty much work of art!

"Unless you've never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather chair or eaten meat, save your condemnation."

You're right, Sarah, we'll all just go fuck ourselves now.

The snotty quote was posted by Sarah Palin on (like all the great frontier women who've come before her) her Facebook page to respond to the criticism she knew and hoped would be coming after she hunted, killed and carved up a Caribou during a segment of her truly awful reality show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, broadcast on The-Now-Hilariously-Titled Learning Channel.

I eat meat, chicken and fish, have shoes and furniture made of leather, and PETA is not ever going to put me on the cover of their brochure and for these reasons Palin thinks it's hypocritical of me to find what she did heart-stoppingly disgusting. I don't think it is, and here's why.

Like 95% of the people I know, I don't have a visceral (look it up) problem eating meat or wearing a belt. But like absolutely everybody I know, I don't relish the idea of torturing animals. I don't enjoy the fact that they're dead and I certainly don't want to volunteer to be the one to kill them and if I were picked to be the one to kill them in some kind of Lottery-from-Hell, I wouldn't do a little dance of joy while I was slicing the animal apart.

I'm able to make a distinction between you and me without feeling the least bit hypocritical. I don't watch snuff films and you make them. You weren't killing that animal for food or shelter or even fashion, you were killing it for fun. You enjoy killing animals. I can make the distinction between the two of us but I've tried and tried and for the life of me, I can't make a distinction between what you get paid to do and what Michael Vick went to prison for doing. I'm able to make the distinction with no pangs of hypocrisy even though I get happy every time one of you faux-macho shitheads accidentally shoots another one of you in the face.

So I don't think I will save my condemnation, you phony pioneer girl. (I'm in film and television, Cruella, and there was an insert close-up of your manicure while you were roughing it in God's country. I know exactly how many feet off camera your hair and make-up trailer was.)

And you didn't just do it for fun and you didn't just do it for money. That was the first moose ever murdered for political gain. You knew there'd be a protest from PETA and you knew that would be an opportunity to hate on some people, you witless bully. What a uniter you'd be — bringing the right together with the far right.

(Let me be the first to say that I abused cocaine and was arrested for it in April 2001. I want to be the first to say it so that when Palin's Army of Arrogant Assholes, bereft of any reasonable rebuttal, write it all over the internet tomorrow they will at best be the second.)

I eat meat, there are leather chairs in my office, Sarah Palin is deranged and The Learning Channel should be ashamed of itself.

We believe that's called getting served! And holy shit, did he ever!

Agree with him or not, you have to admit - boy knows how to argue his case!

We can't even begin to imagine what Sarah is going to have to say in response to THAT! Dare she even try?!

Who are we kidding?! Of course she - or Bristol - will!

What do U think?? Team Sarah or Team Sorkin??

    There is an ENTIRE channel on television for hunters. Should you be so inclined, you can watch people kill animals. It's not my cup of tea but Aaron Sorkin needs to get his head out of his ass and stop pretending this shit doesn't exist already. People HUNT! Maybe homeboy needs to get out of his posh house in LA and get a grip on reality.



  2. 2

    I absolutely agree and love this man…



  3. 3

    I can't bring myself to watch this show or even the previews along with it. It's a huge leap backwards for humanity.



  4. 4

    I was sick when I saw that video of Palin. I have no problem with people who have no other means of eating or caring for themsleves hunting to survive. However this is not the case with Palin. She is a vulgar animal and I find her no better than someone like Michael Vick.



  5. 5

    Team Sorkin!



  6. 6

    Okay, I have NEVER posted a comment before, but I really feel that I need to defend the thousands of people who love to hunt. What Sarah did is nothing different than what a bunch of people do come hunting season. My family and I enjoy hunting and have been doing it for many years together. My son who is 9 has also started hunting, at the age of 7 enjoys it too. Just because you kill an animal does not mean that you do the happy dance, that you enjoy killing.
    What you people don't realize is that hunting is necessary, I don't know if you have ever seen an animal suffer from starvation, or be hunted an killed slowly by a wolf or coyote. I really wish that you people would shut the hell up and give people a break. You may not agree with Sarah but to be honest I would much rather see her hunting any day than listen to Aaron Sorkin..



  7. 7

    6team sorkin and that was amazing!



  8. 8

    Right on Aaron Sorkin!
    Sarah Palin is so full of it - probably the phoniest person in Alaska.
    It has now been reported that the majority of Alaskans dont like her either.
    Go away Sarah Palin & take your loud & disgusting offspring with you.



  9. 9

    Team SORKIN! Bitch needs to sit the fuck down

  10. zooby says – reply to this


    10

    How can the republicans even DEFEND her?! I laugh at the republicans on a gay man's site.



  11. 11

    Well I'm going against this guy. People hunt for fun - I don't agree. BUT I don't eat animals, I don't wear leather (just faux), and I try to use natural products (make up etc). So while Sarah Palin was hunting for fun and didn't need the animal to survive - YOU DON'T EAT MEAT FOR SURVIVAL EITHER. You eat it to enjoy it. Until you don't eat meat please stop pretending to care for animal rights you arse.



  12. 12

    Perez, you should keep your political views to yourself. Its annoying. Responsible "reporters" report the news, not add their every opinion to the stories. Everyone knows your a Sarah Palin hating liberal and people don't care. If you want to be a reporter then just report the news. Honestly I am no Sarah Palin fan but that woman could use the toilet and you'd criticize her or her kids for it. Pretty Pathetic!



  13. 13

    I agree with Sorkin. My husband and I both hunt but we don't film it and put it on tv to promote some stupid ass tv show. She's such an airhead, have a little dignity.



  14. 14

    P.S. the animals you do eat WERE tortured. That hamburger cow you shovel down your throat didn't die of old age or natural causes. Most likely it died from blood being drained or electrocuted. Veal is a baby cow that is tied to a post for its whole life so he is extra tender. F O Q U



  15. 15

    I've not seen this show since we, thankfully, have little-to-no interest in Palin in England (other than "please don't let this wing-nut win the election"). I would much rather see Sorkin strip pieces off Palin than see Palin strip pieces off a moose.
    In England we refer to stupid women as "moose". I'm shocked Palin would kill one of her own.



  16. 16

    Your preoccupation with all things Palin is pitiful. Sorkins tirade sounds like a bratty little boy. Who in the hell cares what he thinks. Leftist hollywood twit . Some folks will never understand hunting. I don't but don't impose my view on others. For someone who preaches tolerance regarding your own personal beliefs you are decidedly intolerant of folks who don't share your political views



  17. 17

    His argument doesn't even make sense! Let others kill the animals for me, but I won't be the one to do it, because I'm not crazy and violent like you, Sarah! Oh, and I'm not a hypocrite, even though I eat meat and use leather!
    In what way is this a "work of art"?



  18. 18

    where are my comments?



  19. 19

    By the way millions of people hunt everyday, whether it be for fun or survival. If you don't agree or like it then don't do it yourself.



  20. 20

    Re: Liketohunt – You have a valid point where hunting is concerned but like he said, this bitch did it for publicity, not for need. She's a low life attention whore who killed that animal for her amusement.



  21. 21

    Wow! It is so eloquently written, that it is hard to make a comment after that! My husband was watching this episode and I had to leave the room when she killed, then cut up the poor animal. I like seeing Sarah with her family and in her natural habitat (lol), but killing an animal for any other reason than for sustenance is revolting to me.



  22. 22

    As someone who used to hate the thought of deer being shot, I then started driving and realizing how necessary hunting is in many states. I don't cherish the thought of having one of them run right in front of my car, or another car who then swerves and causes us to get into an accident. It's about population control for many states, b/c deer accidents kill/injure so many people each year. Also, if he enjoys eating meet, how exactly do you think that meat got on his table…someone has to do it. He should just be thankful that it's not him who has to.



  23. 23

    Team Sorkin! Behind everything Palin does there is a motive.



  24. 24

    I love this piece, and I despise Palin. Thanks for posting, Perez!



  25. 25

    She's disgusting and hateful. I can't say the meat industry is any better though. I agree with his view of her but it is hypocritical if he buys and eats meat. Meat industry is every bit as barbaric as those horrible Palins!



  26. 26

    What a bunch of left wing nuts!!! She killed a moose- SO WHAT!!! People hunt. This dumbshit Sorkin is a hypocrtical fucking moron. If he eats meat in any way shape or form than he is just as bad as the ones who 'kill' the animal. Hunting is EXTREMELY humane. A bullet is a much better death than being chased down, tortured and slowly ripped limb by limb and eaten alive by another predator, i.e. a bear or wolf. People are so stupid. I'm glad this episode aired if for nothing else than to piss off and put all those left extremist's panties in a bunch!! Haha, what a freakin' hoot.



  27. 27

    Oh DONT'CHA KNOW!



  28. 28

    I just login from argentina to comment about this. Congrats to Mr. Sorkin, it is the best thing i´ve read in days. Really smart guy. Sarah Palin is a cruel beast and deserves the same fate that the poor animal did.
    Dear Ms. Palin, do not come to Argentina, you are not welcome here. We have enough idiots to deal with.



  29. 29

    Re: zooby – Most of them DON'T. At least most do not take her seriously as a Presidential candidate. And those who do are utterly clueless!
    And yeah…some of the hillbillies that post on here-too funny!



  30. 30

    I'm glad some people are not afraid to speak out against this silly bitch and her white trash family.



  31. 31

    Re: phineinphilly – Right! she's a phoney and a fraud just like the rest of the tea party!

  32. Dxxx says – reply to this


    32

    I'm guessing this article garners over 500 comments. Wagers?



  33. 33

    To start off…I am no Sarah fan. But I'm wondering if Sorkin has ever looked into the ways that his "meat" makes it to the grocery store? Having come from a family of hunters I can tell you that I have NEVER seen this "torture" he speaks of. On the other hand I HAVE seen how cattle throughout this country are treated before & during slaughter…I think that qualifies as torture thank you very much! We don't electrocute, beat, hang or abuse the deer we are hunting…so his comparison to Michael Vick was irrelevant & totally incorrect.

    I eat meat, I have leather chairs and I think you are a moron. Every comment he makes is hypocritical and based on his dislike for Sarah and NOT the truth.



  34. 34

    You people are fucking idiots. What a douche Sorkin is. And a hypocrit. I don't care what you say, if you eat meat and wear leather, as I do, shut the fuck up. Besides, did anyone point out, or is anyone bright enough to understand that all you bullshit artists like Sorkin who do eat meat, but hate hunting, are fucking fools. Tell me this, what is more cruel, shooting an animal from the wild and eating it, or eating meat from a slaughter house, which abuses the animals terribly, or wear leather that came from skinning animals alive, which is done everywhere. What a blowhard, and you lemmings are just as bad. I hate Palin, but I hate these pompous assholes even more. Hunting for your meat is a million times more merciful than raising them for slaughter and buying the meat at a store. Educate yourselves for fuck sakes, and Sorkin can go do another line of blow instead of lecturing the world on morality. Fucktard!



  35. 35

    That show is a piece of crap, they are showcasing what very few Alaskans get to do. It is very expensive to Halibut fish, and climb glaciers on Mt McKinley and hunt Caribou on the north slope. Sarah Palin gets to do these things because she is a privileged Alaskan and she is Sarah Palin and the people that are doing these things for her want to advertise their business on national television. There are hundreds of hunters in Alaska and they hunt to sustain their family thru the winter and not for sport. I lived in Alaska for a long time and was not able to enjoy the Alaska that Sarah Palin gets to because I had to work so I could afford to live in Sarah Palin's Alaska!!!



  36. 36

    Re: Liketohunt – Seriously - all people who hunt do enjoy killing the animals. It's pretty repulsive to other people who don't. Throw all the other reasons out there you like (over population, natural death) but the fact is if you hunt, you enjoy the killing or you wouldn't do it.



  37. 37

    "Throw all the other reasons out there you like (over population, natural death) but the fact is if you hunt, you enjoy the killing or you wouldn't do it."

    That being said, a hunter killing an animal out in the wild is better than the slaughterhouses.



  38. 38

    Team Sorkin!!
    Has anyone seen the documentary called "Alone in the Wilderness" in PBS? That man had no electricity, built his own log cabin by hand with mostly only the materials that surrounded him and made his own refrigerator by digging a hole in the ground covered with moss… THAT MAN had the right to hunt and kill his own food. Sarah Palin is an enormous asshole and I too was sick to my stomach for seeing the video (thanks Perez for even posting it!) I think that Aaron Sorkin was completely dead-on accurate and I dont think anyone could have said it better. No one is perfect, agreed, but she is waaaaaay over the line.



  39. 39

    Re: mlm09 – and on NONE of the shows on that channel do they field dress their kills. She did that for the shock value.



  40. 40

    Epic.

    I made it 20 minutes into Sarah Palin's Alaska and was horrified by images of her beating fish in the head with a club with the kind of glee that should be reserved for Christmas morning. I don't know what's happening in this country but I am seriously becoming concerned for the future of not only what passes as entertainment in this country but genuine panic for the political gap that has seemingly created a black hole in reality.



  41. 41

    I voted for McCain not Palin. She was his downfall.



  42. 42

    Re: Liketohunt – and again, there was no need to field dress the animal on national t.v.
    .
    You're naive if you don't think she did this to generate controversy, AND she has set back the cause of hunters in a big way. People don't want to see the ickier part of hunting on T.V.
    .
    My husband is a hunter, my 17 year old daughter has harvest a deer every year since she was 13, my 10 year old son just passed his hunter safety class and my youngest looks forward to the day when he can join them all.
    .
    People like Palin do a major disservice to families like ours.



  43. 43

    There is nothing wrong with hunting if you do it responsibly and respectfully, what Palin did (as she usually does) was neither. It was yet another lame attempt for attention grabbing. Proving nothing but her pure grossness, lack of humility, and money grubbing ways.



  44. 44

    Re: birdlegs – The woman has put HERSELF OUT THERE!!! She LOVES it when people like Perez speak against her. It generates more attention, more controversy. She would shrivel up and DIE if everyone stopped talking about her vapid ass.



  45. 45

    This is odd-so Hollywood types like Aaron Sorkin doesn't mind gratuitous sex and violence against human beings which can be seen on television on a daily basis but is deeply offended when someone shoots a deer. Give me a Break.



  46. 46

    too bad she wasn't shot…………..



  47. 47

    Re: TaylorTea – People do eat meat because they like it. Fair point. But also because it is not a part of our culture to not eat it, because people are unaware of vegetarian food options and unsure of how to incorporate it into their income bracket or lifestyle. HUNTING has nothing to do with these factors. HUNTING is 99% for sport. You're not comparing apples and oranges. You're comparing apples to dead animals.



  48. 48

    My brother only eats all natural, free range, unprocessed, and free of additives meat. HE IS A HUNTER!!! You left wing morons sound like little brats crying in the sandbox. BOOWOO! Hunting has been around since man first got hungry, go eat a salad and quit complaining about it!



  49. 49

    Both idiots.



  50. 50

    I grew up as one of the youngest kids in a family with five kids. In our region steel was king and a whole lot of people worked steel made a very nice living. Then one day it was gone. My dad was always a hunter but he bagged food in every season to feed us. He took nothing that wasn't going to be food on someone's table, and our family ate it or he gave it to other families who were out of work and appreciated the meat. We had venison, pheasants, turkey, anything that had a season. He did not relish the kill, but was thankful that he could feed his family.
    *
    Having said that … he was not a millionare, he did not have cameras following him around, nor would there have been a woman in full hair and make up with a perfect manicure hunting with them.
    *
    What my dad did was for sustenance and existence. What Ms Palin did on that show was blood-sport posturing. Hopefully the meat from that animal went to a less fortunate family. You can be damn sure it isn't in her freezer, hell, she's never even at home!



  51. 51

    Re: Lissa180 – Perez Hilton is a Gossip website…agreed, not a cerebral one…but it's hardly The New York Times. He's a loud mouth flaming queen…not a journalist.



  52. 52

    Aaron Sorkin For president !!!

  53. saray says – reply to this


    53

    SORKIN!!!!! absolutely brilliant response.

  54. Ryno says – reply to this


    54

    Sorkin Rocks!



  55. 55

    Ummm Sarah? I come from a family of hunters. Never once did I wear leather that came from the cows that they shot. I didn't realize that there even was an open season on cows. If I would have known that I would have taken up a rifle years ago. I really believe the GOP is doing what is called "giving her enough rope so she'll hang herself" so they don't have to get rid of her and alienate all the Palinites and teabaggers, but her famewhoring will be her own downfall, and maybe they'll get to offer someone worth consideration.



  56. 56

    Hunting is tradition in Northern communities. I have no doubt that the Palins will be eating and/or utilizing almost every part of this creature (who is NOT a moose, by the way). Caribou are plentiful and a source of extremely healthy meat. I'd love to have a chunk of that in my freezer for the winter! I don't even like this woman, but it is her right to hunt if she wishes. As I recall, God put animals on this earth for our use. For all you holier-than-thou-ers out there: get a life. She has one and you are all jealous!



  57. 57

    There is nothing wrong with hunting. People are people and animals are animals. A good hunter knows where the shoot so that the animal does not suffer. I know about Moose hunting not deer or anything but there are rules and regulations as well as strict laws that enforce who gets to hunt (It's a lottery they run to determine who will be eligible for a hunting license for that season and if you don’t get a license that year then you cannot hunt), where they get to hunt and also how many male and female are allowed to be hunted in order to regulate (and not endanger) the animal. Many factors are taking into consideration. For most hunters it's not all about KILLING an animal. It’s about spending time outdoors, tracking, camping… Same with Fisherman. If they get an animal then that’s a bonus. They can feed their families for little money. I grew up in a hunting family (Northern Ontario) and my parent’s hunted moose. They usually hunted and killed one moose a year (if they had a license that year). We had a freezer full of meat every winter and we used all of the meat we possibly could from the animal - Moose roast is what we had for Sunday dinners… Does it make us bad people because we ate Moose and not Beef? Being a Hunter and enjoying torturing an animal are two very different things.



  58. 58

    she's a lunatic !!! Team Sorkin all the way



  59. 59

    That piece was FUCKEN BRILLIANT.

    I wish you'd stop writing about her and her family of retarded swamp monkeys, though. None of them would matter if people would stop feeding their incessant and desperate attempts to get attention. Yawn.



  60. 60

    Arron Sorkin, you have a new fan. Way to call Palin and her low-IQ bullshit to the mat. Thank you. You just gotta wonder what the McCain camp was thinking when they chose her for his VP running mate?



  61. 61

    Brilliant!



  62. 62

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – She did NOT field dress the CARIBOU on TV. They did show the shot, they showed part of the skinning and part of the quartering process. Do I believe that she did it to make a point you bet your sweet A** she did. But I would much rather watch that, then see the little veal boxes with the calf tied to it so it can't move. What gets me, is that there is so much more going on right now in out world WHY on gods green earth is this news worthy??? What about the men and women who are over seas risking their lives? Why are we not hearing more about those people? Why is a hunting episode on TLC this important??
    BTW it was a friggen Caribou, if you are going to piss and moan about it at least get your animal right..



  63. 63

    I didn't realize poor Mr. Sorkin had been forced to watch a show that offends him. Asshole.



  64. 64

    O.k., I am NOT a big Sarah Palin fan BUT Mr. Sorkin is a libtard hypocrite.

    1. Sarah Palin specifically said, her family EATS the meat she gets. The price of meat at Alaska's grocery stores is extremely high and MOST families there hunt for their own meat.
    2. The same libtard freaks that scream about the sick "joy of killing animals" are the same ones that stand up and demand abortion to be extended to the 3rd trimester. Mr. Sorkin is fine if an unborn baby is torn from a mother's womb and mutilated under the terminology of "choice" yet has a problem with an ANIMAL being killed under the terminology of "hunting".
    Whatever!



  65. 65

    I'm not a palin fan but i don't think his point was that great. i eat meat, and no I wouldn't be able to kill an animal (unless it was a life or death situation i guess), but Sarah said repeatedly on that episode that she hunts every year and freezes it and that's what her family lives off of. I don't like the thought of people hunting just for amusement, but if their family is living off of the meat they slaughter, I think that's different. I imagine if you were raised hunting or on a farm, you wouldn't have the "visceral" reaction Mr. Sorkin mentioned and maybe it would be an enjoyable sport-type experience (it wouldn't be for me, but I've just been raised to be too much of a city girl).



  66. 66

    Perez you are SUCH a typical media outlet… just reporting on what YOU think should be reported… this guy, whoever the hell he is, is so freaking wrong I cant even count the ways… why the hell is he ripping in sarah when there are hundreds of THOUSANDS of hours of tv dedicated to hunting, fishing, outdoors, etc. Just because she is a politican does NOT mean she she quit doing things she loves to do like hunt… it is HER life and HER choice and just because she is in the public eye doesnt mean she should shy away from who she is… she is pretty damn popular and loved by millions for a reason and just because one a**hole wants to slam on her, does NOT make it news… it makes the other person self-righteous and a hypocrite. Im sorry if I rather listen and respect a women who hunts rather than a loud mouth with a coke problem.



  67. 67

    Re: phineinphilly – And you, like most other dipshit liberal assholes on this site, just believe evrything other liberal shitheads spew, without having ever actually watched the show, or know anything about what went on. The animal in question, was not "Shot for fun", then left out to rot, it was butchered and eaten just like any other legally hunted animal is. She did nothing wrong, and all of you can kiss her ass. I may not like her, but the rabid liberal f@cks who dog her and her family relentlessly make your the entire Democrat party look like the hypocrites they are. Preach one thing, do the opposite. Freedom??? Democrats don't know the meaning of the word. And Sorkin can say "I'm not being a hypocrite" as many times as he wants in this senseless and completely inaccurate rant, but he pretty much proved over and over in his own words that he is the poster child. Standing right next to you Perez. Owned??? He owned himself and proved what a moron he is, that's about it.



  68. 68

    Aaron Sorkin is my hero!



  69. 69

    I think I am pretty left wing, but I also own guns and have hunted before. I mean I am not a vegetarian. My one daughter is, but I do care about animals and don't kill them for the fun of it. I don't like how Sarah makes it look so fun to kill them. Team Sorkin all the way, and I think his piece really made sense too.



  70. 70

    Regardless of the content of the argument or rebuttal. Sorkin sounds like a bitter elitist wannabe European (oh-so-bad) JEW who will grab onto ANYTHING to jab at Christians. Just come out of the closet already Hollywood!! You don't frighten anyone!!! Get over yourselves or the owners of the Federal Reserve will be revealed and your gig will be up! Being A-Political I don't like Palin either but for different reasons. She is bought and paid for to keep the two party paradigm alive and to avoid REAL revolution through the coming depression. Fuck you Sorkin. Ass hat. I have some double cut angel dust Id like to sell ya with Ajax spinkled in it. We can party together with Chong.



  71. 71

    Re: zooby – We laugh at you too. Why, you ask? For being a stereotypical liberal who stands for not stereotyping anybody but does it just as bad as anybody! What's wrong with a Republican (as I am) reading this site? Oh nothing, you say! But I bet if it were a gay man reading a Republican website and someone made a comment about laughing that he was reading it, you people would jump all over the website's ass for not being accepting of him and for stereotyping. You would contact the ACLU and every major gay group out there to publicly admonish the website, just for one comment someone made.

    But it's ok for you to do it since this is a GAY man's website, right? Just saying… ;-)



  72. 72

    Re: supersongbird – there you go again with all your hate… please just to yourself and all of us a gift by just move to another country and die… you are the worst of the worst. Why we let you live in a great country like american is beyond me… you are scum



  73. 73

    Seemed to really have something going there but like most rants, he got a little excited. Comparing it to Vick? Really?



  74. 74

    Re: zooby – you my friend have just made a very ignorant comment. To laugh at a republican on a gay mans site who only be discriminating and not only that but ostracizing the gay community more. I am a Republican and I have NO problem with reading a gay man site. I have zero problem with gay people.. except when they are the ones who hurt there cause for equality more, but saying things like that. You should be happy there are some republicans reading this site, because that means progress.

    Re: Jenny2 – How right you are! I've often OFTEN wondered how liberals can be ok with killing an unborn baby, whether in the first or third trimester, but not be ok with killing someone via the death penalty when they've kidnapped, raped, and killed innocent children? Seems quite hypocritical to me! I mean, if it's a mother's choice to kill a fetus, then I guess the other argument would be it's a psychopath's choice to kidnap, rape and murder too. So I wonder why that isn't legal…? Hmmm…



  77. 77

    Oh how people miss the point of his article.
    He is basically calling Palin out for being a FAKE and dumbass. She used this killing to create media buzz. Show's like these are often not true reality because though there isn't a script (i'd assume that she would have notes though on what to say) they usually plan what the episode would be about. Meaning that she could of spun this anyway she liked, she choose to use the route of getting people against her. This then makes it for sport, something even a hunter as I am doesn't condone. That is the main problem. I do hunt, and I watched her episode and I could even see Palin's failings. She could of had a much better outcome in this episode had she done things differently. There would of still been many activists, that I don't doubt. I do believe though she painted hunters in a poor light with her behaviour and kept the typical sterotype of hunters killing for sport, fun, and being disrepectful.



  78. 78

    i think a lot of the commenters here are missing the point. Sorkin is simply pointing out that PALIN does things for PUBLICITY. Because she knew this would create comments like everyone's above, she knew it would just put her name back in everyone's mouth. I think she killed the moose for the wrong reasons.. Sorkin is not a hypocrite he's just pointing out her ulterior motives she has in EVERYTHING she does. It's sad. It's sad that people waste time on her when she literally doesn't have a job, screwed AK by quitting as govenor and this show makes her look like an idiot. She's no better then those jersey shore losers. Make your money now Sarah, no one will care about you when you don't get the bid for 2012!



  79. 79

    Also, for all of you who are surprised Perez has an opinion, this is NOTHING NEW. that's why I read here because I agree with what he says. If you don't agree, don't read.. then you can't complain!!!!



  80. 80

    I think that the majority of people who do not hunt really do not get why people hunt. In a lot of circumstances, this animal is being used as food for the person who killed it. People enjoy hunting as an activity and it is a useful part of society.

    I think that a lot of people would be happy to know that a large portion of food in Pennsylvania that is donated to Homeless Shelters and Soup Kitchens are from "Hunters Sharing the Harvest," where hunters donate their deer to people who could truly use it.

    Before people who do knot know or understand an entire culture of hunting and how much good it does in the world condemn others for it, they should probably do a little bit of research on the subject.

    There is a difference between mutilating and torturing animals and killing an animal legally. I am pretty sure if Palin was on a TV show illegally doing something to an animal, her ass would be fined or put in jail…



  81. 81

    They are both completely full of shit.



  82. 82

    Many of you all are EMPTY IN THE HEAD!!
    .
    She killed a caribou. Skinned it. Packed the meat away in the freezer for many meals for the following months. TAKE THE POLITICS OUT OF THE HUNT!!
    .
    Where was Sorkin when Ted Nugent PUBLICALLY displayed his affection for hunting (for the pure sport and not for food).
    .
    SORKIN is one reason why I changed parties last year. I couldn't stand to be apart of the LIBERAL bias and hypocrisy.



  83. 83

    Re: Liketohunt – Right on! I come from a hunting family. I see NOTHING wrong with it. As a matter of fact, I even have a photo of my my son when he killed his 1st buck at 9 years old. He has blood smeared on his cheeks and is grinning from ear to ear!



  84. 84

    There is a big difference between torturing and killing a helpless dog and hunting. There is also a big difference between hunting your own meat and eating it versus buying meat in a store that has been kept in cages or pins in its own fecies and fed food that isn't natural to the animal. Hunting food is much more humane than going to KFC and buying genetically enginered chicken. Is fishing animal abuse too? You beat the fishies head against a rock or the side of the boat to kill it before you gut it. You're also happy when you gut it because you caught it and you will get to eat it for dinner! Ever eat pate perez? guess what. They nail the gooses feet to the ground and stuff them with food until their liver gets that big. It is awful and pure torture. You guys is ignorant and absurd. If you can't kill an animal to get your own food then you honestly shouldn't be allowed to eat animals in the store that someone else slaughtered for you.



  85. 85

    I'm not a Palin fan by any stretch of the imagination - but my issue is this: Perez, if you hate her so much and what she does - why are you giving her the publicity? She of all people knows that no publicity is bad publicity.

  87. 87

    Oh, to clarify, I am NOT for that bill - I'm just saying if it passes, she'd have to stop. Also, I read a lot of people saying things along the lines of "I'm left-wing but I own a gun…" owning a gun doesn't influence your political leanings…



  88. 88

    Well what about the halibut they beat to hell? Why not kill them more humane and end their lives more quickly then beating the piss out of them with a bat. Sarah is a disgusting piece of shit. Someone should beat her with a bat.



  89. 89

    Team Sarah all the way. Sorkin is a candy-ass cry baby and if he was so offended then he has the right to not watch the show aver again. What a hypocritical douche…



  90. 90

    Oh and one more thing…. I LOVE YOU PEREZ!



  91. 91

    Palin is an idiot. She's shown it many times before. Yes, people hunt. Yes, I eat meat and wear leather too, but I would never kill an animal. I won't even watch ANYTHING on TLC anymore. Yes, there are hunting shows — I don't watch them. But when a political person faunts it and constantly throws it in your face, just because she can. Well, she's an idiot.
    I can only hope she falls out of the helicoptor or is mistaken for a moose in the near future.
    Better yet, let someone HUNT her.



  92. 92

    She is a stupid moose. The Republicans have taken her metaphoric handcuffs off, deciding to let her knot the noose and hang herself. Honestly they are BRILLIANT for letting her do this, maybe it will bring someone out of the GOP that is worthy of an actual vote by 2012, probably not, but I can hope.



  93. 93

    Re: army_chick
    Yes, apparently Mr. Sorker wants to save the Moose and rant about those that "joy in killing animals"—but don't dare mention his stance on abortion (nothing to see here, nothing to see–move along)

    Killing a 3rd trimester fetus under the claim of "choice" is a lot worse than killing an animal under the claim of "hunting for food".
    Sorker's a libtard hypocrite



  94. 94

    I'm posting this letter EVERYWHERE I CAN! For some of you people STILL defending her and hunting, he's not condeming HUNTING…he's condeming her HYPOCRISY! I TOTALLY agree with him!



  95. 95

    RE: LiketoHunt - I really can't believe you're making that connection here. Aaron Sorking never condemned Sarah for hunting. He condemned her for hunting for personal gain and purposely saying that she needed to hunt for food, which is entirely untrue, have you seen how many double chins Bristol has?? Sarah is using that as an excuse to hunt on her show so that she causes a rise in people's emotions, and Aaron Sorkin does make that connection. Next time you read something, read it and understand it before you take the time to make yourself look like an ass.



  96. 96

    RE: Liketohunt, I'd also like to see you make the cause that wild carribou are dying off from starvation in Alaska…good luck



  97. 97

    Team Sorkin. She is a hypocrite and media whore. Feel real sorry for her children. God help us all if she becomes President. She sure has a lot of people fooled and they will vote for her. Hope sanity prevails.



  98. 98

    WOW!!!! For as much as people say they HATE Sarah PAlin, they seem to talk about her an awful lot. Must be confusing their obsession with hate.
    She may be a little Thick but she has never done anything to any one of you!!!! I am not saying I approve of her or her wanna be policies she claims as her platform for president, but she is a person. Our society is so incredibly hateful…
    Now as for this issue…people have been hunting as a sport for years and years and years…why now that she does it so people come out of the woodwork and bash her for it.?!?!?!?!
    Maybe we should all get our heads out of our asses, that includes CNN, Fox news, ABC news, NBC news, Perez hilton, end everyone else and talk about real problems…like the fact that we are BROKE as a nation and we are running out of OIL!!!!!
    Just something to think about…



  99. 99

    F*cking brilliant!



  100. 100

    NOW THIS IS A THING OF BEAUTY, not only because it tears that moron a new one but because IT'S ALL TRUE!!!!!!!
