Digby linked this Palin witticism:

“If any vegans came over for dinner, I could whip them up a salad, then explain my philosophy on being a carnivore: If God had not intended for us to eat animals, how come He made them out of meat?”

Of course, human beings are animals, and as we are animals, we are also made of meat. Many other animals will eat us if they get a chance to, including sharks and tigers and probably your cat if you ever expire with only your cat as company, and forget to fill their food bowl before your untimely exit.

I’m forced to conclude that Sarah Palin supports cannibalism. If god hadn’t wanted us to eat our fellow human beings, he wouldn’t have made us out of meat.

However, I’m sure that Palin and Jesus make an exception for fetal flesh, which is not made of meat but of angel song, and is not fit for consumption. The mother, however? Go for it.
