Aaron Sorkin Calls Sarah Palin a "Witless Bully"

by at . Comments

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.

Witless Bully

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 ...

Sorkin is a hate-filled, left-wing moron. Palin has hunted most of her life, so this isn't some phony stunt. The meat is eaten, so the animal isn't killed merely for "fun". To compare the "sport" of dog fighting where dogs gradually tear each other apart to an animal being shot and killed quickly by a high-powered rifle shows how tragically inept Mr. Sorkin is at formulating analogies. It's something he lacks even a trace of intellectual aptitude for. Oh, and most importantly, despite what this idiot is desperately trying to convince himself, he is indeed a hypocrite. He enjoys eating meat, wearing leather shoes, and lounging on a leather couch. None of those things are necessary for his survivial. I guess the only difference is that he has to have someone else do his animal killing for him.

Yes, hunting is legal and, yes, it's a common practice in Alaska. But Mr. Sorkin's point is this: Palin did not kill that caribou to feed her family. She did so for the sole, selfish purpose of showing how tough/normal she is, thereby taking the life of an animal in order to score points politically and garner ratings.
Even the most ardent palin supporters MUST agree with that, right? Is anyone really gonna claim that this multi-millionaire was out there hunting for her poor family's dinner?

Sorkin you are a titless whimp, maybe you need the nerve to pull the trigger. Your no leader stay in the back where you belong.

Sissy-boy Sorkin is a lame, ludicrous, latte-sipping liberal who doesn't know a moose from a caribou, and is afraid of Sarah's fiery, fashionable, flamboyant feminism.

Sorkin is spot on. Thank you.

Actually, dogs are a very popular food source in some parts of the world. I believe this is true particularly of some of the world's Asian countries. For me, a high school student who doesn't even have social studies this term to have a greater worldview than Sarah Palin, a vice presidential nominee and Governor of Alaska is pretty funny.

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
