Palin - more wicked than Bush?

Let the character assasination begin.

According to the Indie, Ms Palin has "has an environmental policy so toxic it would make the incumbent, George Bush, blush" (1).

Worse, however, she's going against the legacy of Teddy Roosevelt and encouraging the killing of cute furry things:
She wants to block US moves to list the polar bear as an endangered species. And she has allowed big game hunters to shoot Alaska's bears and wolves from low-flying planes.

The 44-year-old governor says a federal government decision to protect the polar bear will cripple energy development offshore. As a result, she is suing the Bush administration, which ruled the polar bear is endangered and needs protection. (2)

Be warned! You can't mess with the charismatic mega-fauna and expect no blowback.
