Alaska’s halibut population can relax now that Sarah Palin’s got a new target. In last night’s episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska, Palin heads out to the tundra with her pops for some quality father-daughter time, and she proved that there’s absolutely no better feeling in the world than making your ole’ man proud by shooting down a caribou. After two taxing days of tracking a herd then several misfires, Palin finally takes a young buck down, takes a photo with her prize then quarters up the caribou meat to bring back to her meat locker, conveniently located in her garage. Warning: viewer discretion is advised.
Palin’s empowering assertion that hunting teaches you how to be self-sufficient and independent comments on how she’s changing the face of Alaskan hunting community as well as the nation’s political landscape.
Tea Party Nation’s President, Judson Phillips, certainly agrees with the latter and writes about it in his plea to Palin to overtake Michael Steele as chair of the Republican National Committee.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering about next week’s episode? Sarah Palin ventures out for another wilderness adventure with first-time camper Kate Gosselin and her eight children.
