Sunday morning, before the episode aired, Palin posted a preemptive message on Facebook: “Tonight’s hunting episode of Sarah Palin’s Alaska ‘controversial’? Really? Unless you’ve never worn leather shoes, sat upon a leather couch
or eaten a piece of meat, save your condemnation of tonight’s episode. I remain proudly intolerant of anti-hunting hypocrisy. :)” As someone who does all three, I guess I have to agree with her, even if the scene of her hunting, skinning, and quartering the caribou with her father (and quoting Ted Nugent) is excruciating to watch. (See it below, but you’ve been warned.) As shown in the cheerier promo for the episode, Palin hunts to put meat in her family’s freezer. Like she says, if you eat meat, you can’t fault her — even if you don’t want to watch her.
