Sarah Palin Must Think Osama Bin Laden Is the Same As a Caribou She's Killed -- She Wants His Head!

Posted: Updated:

Sarah -- your tweet accusing President Obama of pussy-footing because he hasn't shown Osama's dead head, shows you think the terrorist IS just a trophy.

Here's what you tweeted on May 4: "Show photo as warning to others seeking America's destruction. No pussy-footing around, no politicking, no drama; it's part of the mission"

Clearly Sarah, you see hunting for bin Laden in the same league as hunting for caribou on Sarah Palin's Alaska! You made sure on the hunting episode of your reality show to film and then show us your "kill" on TV.

Your dad, Chuck Heath, has a house full of mounted animal heads on the wall. You seem to be applying the same "hunting" mentality to the world's most dangerous terrorist.

Sorry, Sarah. President Obama had the intelligent and practical wisdom to tell CBS News that "We don't trot this stuff out as trophies."

Get it Sarah -- bin Laden's head isn't a trophy to be mounted on the White House walls. Not only is it morally inappropriate, he is still a human being and not a caribou, but as the president said, a photo could incite "additional risk or be used as a propaganda tool."

Since when is showing a photo of bin Laden dead with a bullet in his head "part of the mission"? The mission was to capture or kill bin Laden so he would no longer be a threat to the world and so he would be punished for the murders of thousands of innocent people.

That was done and done. Even al Qaeda acknowledged that Osama is dead, in a statement posted on websites today, May 6.

So, Sarah, stick to hunting caribou if you really must and stop accusing the democratic president, who fulfilled his mission to rid the world of Osama, of "pussy-footing."
