Sarah Palin Shoots Back at Aaron Sorkin, PETA

by at . Comments

In a rare interview with lamestream media outlet ABC, Sarah Palin sat down with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts Friday to talk about taxes, government gettin' outta the way, Barack Obama flip floppin' and all sortsa other stuff.

She also took a shot (not literally) at Aaron Sorkin.

CARIBOU KILLER: Palin makes no apologies.

Animal rights activist group PETA called Palin out after she shot a caribou on her TLC show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, but she says at least that could be sincere.

Sorkin calling her a witless bully, comparing her to Michael Vick and saying she killed the animal for political gain, on the other hand, has her all fired up.

Sarah Palin responded to Sorkin’s statement, telling Roberts that “We eat, therefore we hunt - and I am thankful that I get to feed my kids organic food.”

“He's got some of those high powered rifles in some of his movies and TV shows though. I think those are aimed at human beings. Mine is aimed at dinner."

Of her critics, she says, “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. At least they’re sincere about it."

“I’d say 99% of the critics, you know, they’re wearin’ leather belts and they’re eatin’ their hamburgers - and they’re gonna tell me it’s immoral or not the right thing to do to go out and actually harvest that resource, that piece of protein myself?”

There you have it, folks. Aaron Sorkin? Owned.

Is it right? Team Sarah or Team PETA?


poor america!!!!!!!!


I cannot stand this woman! She needs to get over herself.


Yes, but I didn't eat a burger last month or wear leather. Neither did many other of her critics, so she needs to answer those people who do not exploit animals, rather than arguing against a straw man...i.e, people who eat burgers. It's evasion on her part. She's good at that. She's dishonest in many ways-- did you know that she deletes negative comments from her facebook page.


She's not preseidnetial material, so dont judge her comments /actions based on that.
But she's right, if you ate a burger at McDonalds this month, someone killed a cow for you. Get over yourself.


I agree with Sarah! Damn those PETA people! Always attacking the celebrities for wearing fur and leather goods. Damn those PETA! I dont understand why the government and the police doesnt put them in jail for their violence act and protest against those who wears furs especially the celebrities. They are the murder themselves. Not only they wear leather belt and buy leather car seat. They also hunt human. Peta your so FAKE!


Aaron Sorkin is a drug addict. Nuff said.


@frank got it right... Mr. Sorkin's shows are cerebral and thought-provoking, not idiotic and violent... Mr. Sorkin and his work are like the exact OPPOSITE of Sarah Palin and her show!


First, Sarah. You don't determine if something is right or wrong by counting how many people do it or think it's moral. At one time,most people thought owning slaves was moral. Now we know better. Second, there are entire cultures representing millions of people who have lived and thrived for centuries without eating animal protein. Humans do not "need" it to survive and thrive. In fact, the evidence weighs heavily in the other direction --the hazards of a meat and dairy diet and the benefits of a vegan diet are well known in the medical and scientific community,so you're not doing your family any favor by feeding them meat. Finally, millions of people who criticize Palin's killing-lust DO refrain from eating meat or using other animal products. So she can't just dismiss the issue that way. But ignorance is bliss...and seems to run rampant in Neo-con world.


@dr. Horton- thank you! I couldn't have said it better- that statement from jo89v made as much sense as sarah palin does when she talks... I think maybe her & tom cruise should get together, they'd be the ultimate gibberish spewing power couple!


There is nothing comical about Sarah. Like
it or not, Tea Party would be nothing if her name was not associated with it. Also, the republicans would not have an
overwhelming victory if Sarah was not involved. She spearheaded the movement to
give them 63plus gains in the house. Sure, there were some losses like Delaware and Nevada, so what , the gains
were unbelievable. Go ahead, Democrats and Republicans, attack Sarah at your own peril and watch
your re- election bids come to a screeching halt. She is definitely a force to be reckon with.

Sarah Palin Quotes

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.

Sarah Palin

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.
