“You [Sarah Palin] weren’t killing that animal for food or shelter or even fashion, you were killing it for fun. You enjoy killing animals. I can make the distinction between the two of us but I’ve tried and tried and for the life of me, I can’t make a distinction between what you get paid to do and what Michael Vick went to prison for doing.” Aaron Sorkin from the Huffington Post (gross)
My immediate reaction was, that’s preposterous, because people used to hunt in my hometown all the time, but there was no dog fighting. But then I tried reasoning it out and can’t find a strong argument against the above statement.
Except dog fighting is illegal because dogs are pets and moose are large, intimidating elusive mammals. Have you ever tried playing Frisbee with a moose? There is your distinction Mr. Sorkin.
