Sarah Palin and Ted Nugent on hunting

I think that Sarah Palin's show tonight on The Learning Channel at 9 PM indicates why she connects to so many Americans. The self confidence that she shows is something to be admired. Ted Nugent's clip has him pointing to Palin as one of his heroes.

A sneak preview of the show tonight is available here.

UPDATE: Predictably PETA goes nuts over Palin's show. It is amusing how they call her Sarah as if to try minimizing Palin's stature.

“Sarah seems to think that resorting to violence and blood and guts may lure people into watching her boring show,” said the statement from PETA Vice President Dan Mathews. “But the ratings remain as dead as the poor animals she shoots.” . . .

UPDATE2: Hunters seemed to approve of the show.

Nick Seifert, a sportsman and conservation advocate who hosted the “Straight Shooting” segment of “American Gun Dog” for five seasons and had a 12-year career with Field & Stream and Outdoor Life magazines, about Palin’s skills as a hunter. . . . “It seemed realistic to me, and I’m a pretty harsh critic of that because I see a lot of unrealistic stuff out there on hunting channels. I thought it was an honest hunt and I thought there are a lot of people out there who would like to have that kind of time with their dad.” . . .

Mareen Dowd is over the top in her meanness about the hunt.

The female caribou could easily have escaped, since it took the Wasilla huntress six shots, two rifles and some help from her dad to bag her prey. (Giving credence to Levi Johnston’s contention that she isn’t all that proficient with guns.)

But, inexplicably, the caribou just waited to get gunned down by Sarah Palin, who came across less like a pioneer woman than Private Benjamin with her camo, her French manicured nails, her cap that says (in pink) Girls And Guns, her 72-year-old father and her TLC reality show crew.

Sarah checked her freezer at home before she flew 600 miles to the Arctic, trying to justify her contention that she needs to hunt to eat. . . .

UPDATE3: Here is an interview that Palin had with Laura Ingraham where Palin makes some fairly libertarian arguments for keeping government out of deciding what people should eat.
