Speaking of the gov….

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. This one speaks volumes to me.

Palin and crab That’s a Mama Grizzly on the couch. There’s a bear to the right of her.

I just could not resist! I’m sorry. No, I’m not. We got a thing from Defenders of Wildlife today (you know, that fringe group), and they enclosed a card with this picture on it. I believe my exact words were, “Oh my God! Is that a crab?!” Ken said, “You know…Alaskan king crab.” I said, “I know, and you know I love crab…but who puts a huge crab on their table?”



A couple of readers have said they think this looks photoshopped. I thought so, too, but when I searched for the picture online, the photo is attributed to Stephen Nowers and McClatchy Newpapers, and has a 2008 copyright for the Seattle Times Company. Although I’ve also seen another credit given to “Anchorage Daily News/MCT—Landov.” It states that it was taken in her Anchorage office, and the bear was shot by her father. Here’s the link to the New York Times story that included the photo.

If anyone can find anything showing that it’s a fake, I’ll be happy to print a retraction. From what I’m finding—and I did look before I posted it—it’s legit.


  1. Looks a little Photoshopped to me. I mean, look at her face! She looks like she's got a thought!

    So fake, man.

  2. How did I know when I opened the envelope, that this was going to end up here. Guess that is wh I gave it to you instead of secretly posting it :o)

  3. I gotta agree with Dan about it looking photoshopped. Otherwise it makes her look like a heartless bitch that would kill for sport, instead of hunting for...I don't know actual food. (Hugs)Indigo

  4. Surely, its a fake. Even Sarah Palin wouldn't do something that.....well, never mind.

  5. The only thing fake about the picture is the politician sitting there.

  6. Your commenter's really thing they are amusing...
    As for the photo - I'd say someone had a heck of a time in the photo gallery.

  7. Sarah Palin would do any thing and none of it right. Has any one figured mout I don't like hert.

  8. Not my taste in decor, but whatever. I know plenty of folks with similar trophies (WI is big on hunting).

    But all I could think about when I saw the photo, and I'm serious . . was damn hot she looks.

    I haven't been that attracted to a VP candidate since Reagan picked Bush Sr. ;)

  9. typo: left out a '.' and a 'how'


  10. There is a BBQ joint in Maryland that makes some of the best BBQ. Their decor is stuffed animal scenes. Kim won't eat with us there. BWI airport has a huge crab in its terminal... granted it's an art piece, not a trophy... OH.. and they have ants crawling up their walls in the baggage claim area. :) Just FYI.

  11. It looks photoshopped to me.

    Hugs, Rose


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
