The Palin-o-lithic Diet

November 19, 2009 | 32 Comments

“If any vegans came over for dinner, I could whip them up a salad, then explain my philosophy on being a carnivore: If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat? I love meat. I eat pork chops, thick bacon burgers, and the seared fatty edges of a medium-well-done steak. But I especially love moose and caribou. I always remind people from outside our state that there’s plenty of room for all Alaska’s animals—right next to the mashed potatoes.”

says Sarah Palin in Going Rouge Rogue.

You betcha. Also.

Seriously. How many assumptions can one count in that single paragraph?

1. There’s a God.
2. It’s a “He”.
3. That God gives a damn about what Moose-o-lini loves.
4. A vegan would willingly go to her house for dinner.
5. Vegans don’t expect anything more than salad when they accept a dinner invite.
6. What a privilege it would be to be treated to that bonus God lecture.

Now, that leaves me wondering:

If God didn’t want me to infer that being a carnivore impedes brain function, why did He create Sarah Palin?

P.S.: Thanks for all your concern and enquiries about my hand surgery. I had a thorn in there two months ago that punctured and infected a vein and led to a blood clot. I got it attended to yesterday and should be back to 100% normal in a week. Thanks again for asking.

    “If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat? ” That is Classic nonsensical Palin. Seriously, I doubt if she knows she is also made out of meat…

    Glad your hand is on the mend and pleased to see none of the clottiness affected your sharp wit along the way.

    I’d just as likely buy or read a Palin book as I would one by Shrub (G W Bush). I extend my extreme empathy to all the rest of the folks in Alaska as they are now putting up with what Texans have endured for about a decade now – being painted with the same brush as their most (in)famous self appointed resident/pundit.

    I have one word in answer to all this:VOTE!

  19. Claire says:

    Politics do not belong in the food portion of your site. Please put them in “Musings” or elsewhere. Thank you.

  20. Bhagyashri says:

    Good one. I have a habit of collecting quotations that I find interesting, humorous or thought provoking. I hope you dont mind me adding yours to that collection…:)

  21. Simona says:

    Nice post, Bee. Glad to hear your hand will heal soon.

  22. Ricki says:

    Hilarious. I love your final inference, too! And so glad to hear that your hand is on the mend. Sounds as if it could have been scary! :)

  23. Anonymous says:

    Just don’t be so harsh on her. Those are her opinions she is entitled to ..

  24. Balaji says:

    Love that quote (your’s, not palin’s) …Just tweeted this article.
    BTW Glad you are doing better with your hand.

  25. Sunita says:

    Glad to know your hand is feeling better. Hugs to you.

    As for the Palin lady …..

  26. pelicano says:

    Wow, look what I missed! I hope your hand recovers quickly, and as for Sarah, well, no comment. (Eeeeek!)

  27. Miri says:

    Hope you have made a full recovery – that must have been painful!

  28. yasmeen says:

    Hope you are feeling better now.

  29. Dhruv says:

    When people ask what vegetarians eat about from salad, I tell them that there are at least around 300 Veg. indian dishes. How people tolerate her … I do not know.

    Glad to see your doing better

    In other news – Sarah Palin endorses cannibalism.
