Can’t say we missed seeing Sarah Palin in the news. Below, an excerpt of Governor Palin’s remarks defending herself from Ashley Judd’s recent video (below) and “fringe group” Defenders of Wildlife. Via Ecorazzi:

“The ad campaign by this extreme fringe group, as Alaskans have witnessed over the last several years, distorts the facts about Alaska’s wildlife management programs. These audacious fundraising attempts misrepresent what goes on in Alaska, and I encourage people to learn the facts about Alaska’s positive record of managing wildlife for abundance.

“Shame on the Defenders of Wildlife for twisting the truth in an effort to raise funds from innocent and hard-pressed Americans struggling with these rough economic times.”

Visit to help stop Governor Sarah Palin’s aerial-wolf killing program. Governor Palin continues to push extreme methods to kill wolves and bears, seeking to eliminate hundreds of wolves this season through Alaska’s aerial wolf killing program. Her state’s Board of Game has even approved the killing of young wolf pups in or near their dens, a controversial practice that was illegal until 2008.

    the truth hurts sometimes mrs. palin….. now you know how the wolves feel.

    Those who disrespect Gov. Palin are only disrespecting themselves. If there were a compilation (and there may be somewhere) of all the unprecedented vitriolic slander directed at this absolutely charming intelligent and RESPECTFUL woman, it would deserve a place of honor in a Hall Of Shame.
    I have come to the conclusion that certain types of people need scapegoats and sacrificial victims to satisfy some kind of atavistic sadism that compels them to attack what is beautiful and good. Any NORMAL human being, would be able to see that Sarah Palin is a down to earth good person and agree or disagree with her policies and positions, afford the high respect that is her DUE, that she DESERVES, for her honest work on behalf of the American People and her lifelong efforts to live in a loving, intelligent and moral life..

    What goes around, comes around, Sarah. Would you want someone to shoot you from an airplane?

    Didn’t think so.

  4. Mrs. Palin, we know that's you.

    Seriously, respect for all is a great idea. Too bad Mrs. Palin can't walk such talk herself, hey?

  5. Come on, you think she would even know the meaning of atavistic, let alone use it in a sentence? 😉

  6. Your definitions of "good," "honest," "loving," "intelligent," and "moral" seem a bit different than mine, to which Palin's public behavior has seemed to me pretty much antithetical. Your defintion of "NORMAL" also seems a bit off (though, to be quite honest, I don't generally find the term very meaningful at all).

    Any NORMAL human being would have enough humanity to know that the genocide of wolves is wrong and that wolves are a serously misunderstood species who are mercilessly hunted down.
    Sarah Palin " a down to earth, good person" ? There is nothing good about her wolf killing programs. A good person would never approve senseless killings. Gov. Palin does not deserve any respect at all, since she has not done anything to deserve that. Moral life? Do you seriously believe we are going to believe all that??
    That woman is an absolute disgrace! Unbelievable really

    If i were to start hunting people who have violent ancestors could i call that 'predator control'? To be honest i do hunt, I hunt deer and large birds. I EAT what i kill. nothing gets wasted. the bones go to my wolf hybrid dogs. anything with spine or brain tissue is properly disinfected to prevent disease. If i spotted Palin while out hunting I would walk out of the woods…alone.
