Aaron Sorkin went off on Sarah Palin on the Huffington Post yesterday, terming her a "witless bully" for staging a caribou hunt on her TLC reality series.
Sorkin, creator of The West Wing and the writer of films such as A Few Good Men and The Social Network, was particularly miffed by Palin's explanation.
"Unless you've never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather chair or eaten meat, save your condemnation," she wrote in defense of Sarah Palin's Alaska.
Not that simple, Sorkin replies.
Likening Palin's antics on her "truly awful reality show" with Michael Vick's dogfighting ring, Sorkin said he may eat meat, but the two are poles apart.
"I don't watch snuff films and you make them. You weren't killing that animal for food, shelter or even fashion. You enjoy killing animals," writes Sorkin.
"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." He's just getting warmed up.Sorkin called Palin a "phony pioneer girl" who "didn't just do it for fun or for the 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.""
Hard to believe, but Sarah Palin isn't remaining mum on the subject.
"So a left wing producer thinks there is no distinction between harvesting healthy, wild organic protein to feed my family and engaging in dog fighting?" she writes. "I didn't know anyone ate dogs, tanned the hides, and made boots out of them."
It's SO on. Choose a side ...
