72. Backlash?
I wondered the same thing (about possible backlash). However, the ad is very well done to show how inhumane and downright gruesome these acts are. I'm not a hunter or a supporter of those acts. However, the true sportsmen (and sportswomen) that I know are not insulted by this ad - in fact, they object to Palin's proposals as well as it gives the sport of hunting a hugely negative connotation. Also, the true hunters look down at this garbage: hunting is person versus nature (with some clearly defined rules and rituals) rather than person in helicopter versus nature. To them, her proposals make it "amateur hour" and ultimately they end up shooting themselves (hello, mr. vice president...).
