Defenders of Wildlife and Sarah Palin...

Before I start this, let me say that I am a fan of Ashley Judd and I'm not a member of the Defenders of Wildlife. I should also disclose that I'm not a fan of Sarah Palin, but I'm sure you knew that. Also, you should know that I don't hunt. I don't have an issue with most hunting.

Now, that said, what the hell is wrong with Sarah Palin? Ashley Judd did attack her in a You Tube video, which I haven't seen, and Sarah Palin fights back by calling the group with which Ashley Judd works a fringe organization. The Defenders of Wildlife have been around since 1947 and they have well over 500,000 members, so I would hardly call them a fringe organization.

I'd like to go on record as saying that shooting a wolf from a plane is not a sport. It is nothing more than, well, I don't know what it is besides gross. I was taught that you eat what you shoot when it comes to hunting. The exception to this was an animal that wrecks havoc like a groundhog or, even, a wolf. But, you don't shoot them from planes. You want to hunt a wolf, at least make it sporting.

If Palin wants to defend this non-sport fine -- I don't care, but just because you disagree with them, don't call a real group fringe.

God Bless

Dick Cheney & Wolf Blitzer

I'm probably a day late and a dollar short on this post, but I think Wolf was out of line.

If you don't know, Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter, Mary, is expecting a child. James Dobson's Focus on ourselves and look what good "Christians" we think we are made the following statement:

"Mary Cheney's pregnancy raises the question of what's best for children. Just because it's possible to conceive a child outside of the relationship of a married mother and father doesn't mean it's the best for the child."

First, I'd like to say it's none of their freaking business and that whole group should just fall back into the hole from which they came.

Second, while I believe the group has a right to say whatever they want to say, I don't believe we should all have to listen to it.

Finally, the statement was made in December, which brings me to Cheney and Blitzer. Blitzer reads the quote and then expects Cheney to comment on it. I feel that it was unfair and I believe that Cheney was right was telling Blitzer that he was out of line. I think Dobson's hate group is out of line for commenting on the Vice President's daughter. If you want to make a statement against gays, fine, make it, but leave Mary Cheney and her pregnancy out of it.

God Bless
