Sarah Palin - Sarah Palin Hits Back At Aaron Sorkin

SARAH PALIN, the former Governor of Alaska and star of the reality show 'Sarah Palin's Alaska', has hit back at criticism from screenwriter AARON SORKIN over clips of her hunting and killing a caribou. Sorkin, the creator of hit political drama 'The West Wing' had accused the 46-year-old of killing an innocent animal for political gain, something the potential presidential candidate denies.
In an interview on Friday (16th December 2010) with 'Good Morning America's' ROBIN ROBERTS, Palin hit back at the criticism, saying, "We eat, therefore we hunt - and I am thankful that I get to feed my kids organic food". Palin went on to accuse her critics of hypocrisy, saying, "If they don't wear leather shoes and a belt and drive a car with leather seats and they eat no meat, then they have somethin' to say. And I can listen to them when they say, 'How dare you kill an animal to feed a family?' because they don't participate in that. And at least they're sincere about it". The multi-award winning Sorkin had branded Palin a "phony pioneer girl", but the former Governor hit back with further associations of hypocrisy, saying, "I'd say 99% of the critics, you know, they're wearin' their leather belts and they're eatin' their hamburgers somewhere".
The 46-year-old's controversial reality show 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' concludes on 26th December 2010.

The problem here is Sarah used killing an animal as a political event. She killed it to have this debate. She is right, people need to eat less meat. But that doesn't justify killing an animal just so you can score political points with your base. That is pure evil.

And if a bear kills a lunatic that chooses to camp in their territory, they hunt until they kill whatever bear (or cougar, or shark) is around. That lunatic Palin needs to just disappear and then stay lost.

critics show you one side of a coin . show both sides of the coin and the critics have no subject to talk about . Fire right back at them, Sarah . It's time to lock and load . Carry an extra clip . If we could only get the people to do like 2Chronicles Ch:20 , God would heal the land . Present all things honest ,Sarah . God is a mighty helper . I wouldn't worry about what comes out of the white house . Prompters have been known to short out . Have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR PLOWBOY

You killed the deer because it was a good TV shot for your show. It's not like the deer 'wandered' into your line of sight. It was herded there. It's not that you needed the deer to eat, you needed to show America that you were 'mannin' up' so please spare us all the rhetoric about how you are the victim, again, and take your criticism like a man.

Falin does not have a good track record when it comes to animals,she has sided with oil companies to drive polar bears right out of their natural habitat with bears drowning as a result,she`s not a fan of mine.

I say take Aaron Sorkin and set him out on the wilds of Alaska and see how long he survives. These negative, whining, narcissistic Libs are the blight of the earth.
