Aaron Sorkin Attacks Sarah Palin Over Moose Hunting on Sarah Palin’s Alaska

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin let loose on Sarah Palin for killing a moose on her reality-TV show—and for, as he says, deliberately courting controversy by doing so. In a piece for The Huffington Post, Sorkin admits he eats meat and sits on leather, but says, “I don’t relish the idea of torturing animals ... I don’t watch snuff films and you make them.” Worse than killing moose for pleasure, Sorkin says Palin hunted on TLC’s Sarah Palin’s Alaska for political gain, knowing there would be outrage from PETA and that it “would be an opportunity to hate on some people, you witless bully.” After also calling Palin a “phony pioneer girl,” and “Cruella,” Sorkin admitted to abusing cocaine, to save “Palin’s Army of Arrogant Assholes” the trouble. The Emmy-winning writer signed off with the following: “I eat meat, there are leather chairs in my office, Sarah Palin is deranged and The Learning Channel should be ashamed of itself.”
