Beware of the Barracuda

 

ALASKAN BARRACUDA. Gov. Sarah Palin sits pretty in Anchorage with the fur and hide of a grizzly bear that her own father earlier shot and killed.
 
 
Bloggers see Palin as hunter,
killer of grizzly bears, wolves
 
 
THE Grizzly Bay blog lists the Top 11 things one must know about Republican Party presumptive presidential nominee Arizona Sen. John McCain’s choice as running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin:
 
1) She is presently under investigation in Alaska for abuse of power;
 
2) She strongly supports big oil (her husband works for oil company BP);
 
3) She stands for everything that New York Sen. Hillary Clinton has stood against;
 
4) She is adamantly opposed to reproductive rights for women;
 
5) She has no federal or international experience, because prior to being governor (for less than two years), she was only the mayor of a small town and the town beauty queen;
 
6) She believes global warming is a farce and is opposed to listing the polar bear as an endangered species;
 
7) She believes creationism must be taught in public schools;
 
8 ) She supports drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and anywhere else big oil wants;
 
9) She supports Pebble Mine which will destroy the richest salmon run in the world;
 
10) She supports aerial shooting of bears and wolves in Alaska; and
 
11) She is pro-war like McCain, as well as President George W. Bush and the man she wishes to replace as Vice President, the Iraq war architect Dick Cheney.
 
 
Worse for the environment than even Bush and McCain her patron, Palin supports the development of Pebble Mine, reportedly the largest open pit mine in North America, the Grizzly Bay blog says.
 
It also says Pebble Mine has jeopardized the entire Bristol bay ecosystem which contains the largest sockeye salmon run in the world, adding that the mine would pollute an unprecidented number or rivers, lakes, and bays.
 
Further, the blog reveals that although Gov. Palin has claimed that Pebble will create jobs for Alaskans, the mine will instead effectively destroy the commercial and sport fishing industry in Bristol Bay, while the mine’s potential for pollution will make the Exxon Valdez oil spill look like a tiny grease stain.
 
It says Palin has sued the federal government over listing polar bears as a threatened species, because it can restrict the oil industry that she supports, adding this is the same reason she wants to open up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for oil drilling.
 
Bloggers are also pretty shocked to hear that McCain has chosen Palin as his running mate.  Given the fact that she is being investigated for abuse of power, Palin is supposed to be out of the running, but obviously McCain is trying to court the women’s vote.
 
According to bloggers, Palin is as bad for women’s rights as Bush and McCain combined, adding she is an ultra-conservative politician dedicated to destroying the Alaskan ecosystem in the name of oil exploration and outdated wildlife management policy.  They say Palin has no federal or international experience.
 
Moreover, they say Palin supports the aerial hunting of wolves and bears, as they claim that she even spent $400,000 of Alaskan state funds to finance a media campaign trying and convincing Alaskans to support aerial shooting – even though Alaskans have voted against it, twice.
