Palin grew up in Alaska, where people hunt and fish. So be it. This is not going to be a dissertation on animal rights or a moral critique on her spare time activities. Moose and salmon and wild birds are fair game for hunters in her neck of the woods, and Sarah hunts and fishes with the best of them. Good for her.
But in her new role as the GOP veep candidate Sarah Palin has crossed a line, even for a hunter. This time she has set her sights on a new and unfamiliar target. This time she is not aiming at a herd or a bevy or a flock. This time she is going after a large group of intelligent, thinking Americans known as women voters. .
