Palin Reaffirms Carnivore Status

Sarah Palin’s book Going Rogue came out Tuesday, and The Huffington Post is serving up Palin’s pearls of wisdom on politics, government, her marriage, and food. On the subject of meat, Palin writes, “If any vegans came over for dinner, I could whip them up a salad, then explain my philosophy on being a carnivore: If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat? I love meat. I eat pork chops, thick bacon burgers, and the seared fatty edges of a medium-well-done steak. But I especially love moose and caribou. I always remind people from outside our state that there's plenty of room for all Alaska’s animals—right next to the mashed potatoes.”
