Great Quote from Palin's Dad:

"I'd rather go moose hunting than be involved with politics." I hope someone prints up some "Politics? I'd rather go moose hunting" t-shirts.

James Gibson (mail):
One staff member I work with was calling for the resurrection of the Bull Moose Party so he/she would have an alternative party to vote for. This was of course before Palin was stated to like Moose Stew.

Just don't go hunting with Cheney.

Yes, I know, too easy.

Doesn't do much for me. The "I'd rather do my favorite thing than do something I don't like" doesn't strike me as particularly profound, especially if that favorite thing is killing large animals for fun.

Scote,

They don't kill moose just for fun in Alaska. They eat them.

Having fun is just a bonus.

Dad gets MY vote...

Unfortunately there's no moose in D.C., but maybe if his daughter becomes Veep and moves into the Vice President's house at the Naval Observatory, when he comes to visit he can spend his free time plinking at all the squirrels up there. Preferably with a firearm presently mis-defined as a "machinegun" by D.C.'s gun control ordinances.

...ain't you the life of the party.

As noted above, game is eaten in many areas as a practical and available source of nourishment, Alaska certainly being one of them, Scote's ignorance of this not withstanding.

Eating moose, even being in the kitchen while it is being prepared, is a... singular experience. :))

Last October in Montana, I had moose salad sandwiches for lunch- chopped moose mixed with MiracleWhip® and pickle juice on homemade white bread- delicious.

Of course hunting/eating moose is far worse then cows...

You didn't get the memo - we're supposed to look down on butchers.

It's a caste thing, you wouldn't understand.

Yeah, Democrats hate Jon Tester. The thing with hunting moose is sometimes they hunt back.

The only person who would want to wear a shirt like that would be a political nerd. And that doesn't work, because then the message would be inaccurate.

If I saw a person wearing that shirt, I would assume they would be much, much, much more likely to be able to name their state's senators than an average person on the street.

How he got in my pajamas I'll never know.

... or with a picture of a moose in the cross-hairs, staring out under a thought-bubble that says, "It could be worse -- they could be politicians."

Is it true the moose said she was delicious with MiracleWhip® and pickle juice on homemade white bread?

You would mock MiracleWhip®? Damn you, sir- (*smek-smek* lightly slaps you with glove).

Your choice of time, place, and weapons of course- I'll send my man around in the morning.

I meant your condiment no dishonor, but I understand of course that there's no recourse now but satisfaction.

I was going to suggest, "computer viruses, your hard drive, when you least expect it" but that strikes me as the type of thing you don't joke about. So I'll opt instead for cluster bombs at twenty paces after I finish my laundry, which I trust you'll find suitable.

your terms are acceptable, however-

You'll have to describe your laundry in order that I can make a decision as to it's suitability- bearing in mind that too-casual attire would be a mistake in any season.

Yours &etc.

"Politics? I'd rather go moose hunting" makes an outstanding bumper sticker. Put one on the back of Scote's Prius when he's not looking, just for hoots. The reaction of all his Greenpeace and PETA pals will be absolutely priceless.

MiracleWhip® and pickle juice makes a wonderful cologne. I recommend wearing it if you're looking for a truly memorable weekend camping experience in Yosemite. Remember, the cuddly bears you'll meet just want to be your friend.

Reminds me of my favorite squelch in political history. When the Paula Parkinson pseudo-scandal broke, and Dan Quayle was accused of sleeping with a lobbyist on a golf junket, Marilyn Quayle reposnded: Everyone knows that Dan would rather play golf than have sex any day.

Has there even been a reporter who could ask a follow up to that?
