Gleeful Democrats are all like, look, Sarah Palin is a monster, standing around while animals that were bred and raised to be killed for food are killed for food. This is one of my biggest pet peeves, you'll pardon the expression. From a gourmand's perspective, the only people whom I abhor more deeply than vegans in their infinite quest to torture all delicious vegetables into colorless mush shaped like something other than the vegetable of origin are meat eaters who cannot face up to the fact that death precedes their yummy dinner. Oh, don't like the blood? Here's a nice piece of tofu. It tastes like anything! I suppose I'll echo Anthony Bourdain here: meat does not actually grow on a diaper on a styrofoam plate wrapped in plastic. The slaughter you saw behind Gov. Palin was humane. Ever seen a high-density poultry farm? An industrial processing plant? Yeah, that's what I thought. If you cannot stomach the killing of animals, then you have no business eating meat.
