At Big Hollywood, Lorie Byrd observes that tonight’s episode of "Sarah Palin’s Alaska" is the best example yet of "just how much of the state is still remote and untamed," proof that the state still earns its nickname, "America’s last frontier":
In this episode, Sarah Palin explains that hunting in Alaska is not just for sport — it is still done in some areas out of necessity. She says that in some remote parts of the state the closest grocery store could be 400 miles away. She tells viewers that people pack their freezers full of meat for the long winter. She even gives us a peek at her freezer, noting she has plenty of caribou sausage and moose pepperoni, and there is some buffalo in there, but she is getting low on packages of moose and caribou meat.That's because liberals believe that steaks and fish fillets grow in the refrigerated display cases of grocery stores like they were fruit on trees or something. As Gov. Palin remarked on Facebook Today:
Did I mention that this episode might just make a PETA member’s head explode?
Tonight's hunting episode of Sarah Palin's Alaska "controversial"?Anyway, Gov. Palin, her dad Chuck Heath and his buddy Steve Becker journey 600 miles from Wasilla to Kavik River Camp for a hunting experience in the tundra, 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Actually, from the Kavik camp they still have to travel by airplane to an even more remote location. Since the Piper Super Cub only has room for its pilot and one passenger, the three have to be flown in one at a time. Only then does the hunt begin...
Really? Unless you've never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather couch
or eaten a piece of meat, save your condemnation of tonight's episode. I
remain proudly intolerant of anti-hunting hypocrisy. :)
Be watching tonight at 8PM Texas Time, with an encore presentation at 10PM on TLC.
