Former Alaska Governor and ex-Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin received a scolding from PETA yesterday. The controversy is over a photo Palin put up her Faceboo page of her son on New Years Day, Trig, standing on top of a family dog in order to reach the kitchen sink. After PETA released a statement criticizing the photo, Governor Palin issued a statement on her Facebook page states in part:
Hey, by the way, remember your “Woman of the Year”, Ellen DeGeneres? Did you get all wee-wee’d up when she posted this sweet picture?
Did you go as crazy when your heroic Man-of-Your-Lifetime, Barack Obama, revealed he actually enjoyed eating dead dog meat?
Aren’t you the same herd that opposes our commercial fishing jobs, claiming I encourage slaying and consuming wild, organic healthy protein sources called “fish”? (I do.)

I found Palin’s response to be very well done and her criticisms of PETA valid. Unfortunately, Palin’s essay, including her pointing out the group’s contradictions, won’t stop them from doing what they are doing.
