    Lol, read Mycroft's waambulance posts about how bad Palin has it. Wait... isn't that what you did in the thread about Michelle Obama discussing racism? Point out that she's the first frigging lady? I'm doing the same here. She's a multimillionaire with book deals, sponsorships and tv shows. How bad can she possibly have it? A few haters on the internet? People thinking she's putting the dog in harm's way? Oh woah is me.

    PETA should have seen the picture DeGeneres posted.
    There is no way to prove that they did - it's not like PETA follows people around to make sure everything they post online matches PETA's values. Again, where you see hypocrisy, I see the possibility that... uh... maybe they didn't really give a **** about her a few years after? Maybe they unfriended her? Stopped following her? Dunno. A million reasons for not seeing the picture.

    She was their woman of the year a few years ago. They should award that to people who don't post pictures that deeply offend them (as Palin's did). And they also awarded Obama a similar title even after he admitted to eating dog -and liking it. That flies in the face of all that PETA stands for, and PETA abhors the consumption of dog in China and Korea and other places, and actively campaigns against it. So Palin was right to point out PETA's hypocrisy. They stepped into it.
    Obama admitted to eating dogs... 35+ years ago. Do you not get this yet? Why the hell would PETA go after Obama for something he did more than 3 decades ago?

    As if that dog wouldn't have moved very quickly if he'd found that uncomfortable.

    I think you know me well enough to know that I have no interest in discussing other people's posts when I'm making my own. Mycroft is free to post what he wants. It has nothing to do with what I'm posting. Kindly stop asking me to weigh in on other posters.

    PETA didn't unfriend Ellen. They still follow her around.

    When Obama came out and admitted to eating dog - and liking it - PETA still awarded him for his support of animals. Do you think if Sarah Palin said she ate a cat in 1978 they'd giggle and ignore it? No, they wouldn't. They even attack Republican politicians for what their children do to animals.

    By the way, the infamous situation with Mitt Romney and his dog on the roof happened in 1983. In 2007 - a full 24 years later - PETA was outraged by it, and went on full attack which continued well into the 2012 election cycle. You can Google it all and see. So please, spare me the confusion of PETA not addressing something that Obama did 3 decades ago. PETA is filled with hypocrisy when it comes to politics.

    Is PETA hypocritical for not taking Obama to task for something he did when he was a kid?

    Okay. If you say so.

    Some supporters of John Kerry shocked by President Bush’s victory in last week’s election continue to seek out psychological help, prompting at least one mental-health center to offer free counseling through the end of this year.


    The Florida-based American Health Association has released symptoms of what it calls “post-election selection trauma,” or PEST, which include: feelings of withdrawal, feelings of isolation, emotional anger and bitterness, loss of appetite, sleeplessness, nightmares, pervasive moodiness including endless sulking, and being excessively worried about the direction of the country.

    World Net Daily. Enough said.

    A google search of "American Health Association + Florida" turns very little. And even so, we're talking what, 50 people? That's such a small sample size as to be completely meaningless.

    Actually, yes they are. They should have asked him to say he regrets it and not awarded him an honor for his support of animal causes. He seemed proud of it. So yes, if they truly weren't hypocritical, they would have called him out on it. Obama also made jokes about eating dog, which I also find surprising that PETA thinks they were amusing. One comes to mind quickly when Obama was at the WH Correspondents' dinner. Palin had just completed a stint as guest host of The Today Show, and Obama brought it/her up, saying it reminded him of an old saying "What's the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious." PETA wouldn't tolerate that joke from Palin.

    This isn't about Obama, remember. It's about PETA and Palin.

    Fine, then read your own posts complaining about how bad Palin, the multimillionaire woman has it because people have negative opinions of her.

    PETA didn't unfriend Ellen. They still follow her around.

    When Obama came out and admitted to eating dog - and liking it - PETA still awarded him for his support of animals. Do you think if Sarah Palin said she ate a cat in 1978 they'd giggle and ignore it? No, they wouldn't. They even attack Republican politicians for what their children do to animals.
    I don't know, I don't care. What I know is that it would be stupid for PETA to take Obama to task for eating dog 35+ f'n years ago.

    By the way, the infamous situation with Mitt Romney and his dog on the roof happened in 1983. In 2007 - a full 24 years later - PETA was outraged by it, and went on full attack which continued well into the 2012 election cycle. You can Google it all and see. So please, spare me the confusion of PETA not addressing something that Obama did 3 decades ago. PETA is filled with hypocrisy when it comes to politics.
    Eh... the "infamous" situation you're discussing what Romney talking about tying his dog to a roof and PETA saying it was cruel. That's about it. When Obama swatted a fly, they also went on record:

    PETA miffed at President Obama's fly execution | Reuters

    But now People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, calling it an "execution," wants the commander-in-chief to show a little more compassion to even "the least sympathetic animals."

    "Believe it or not, we've actually been contacted by multiple media outlets wanting to know PETA's official response to the executive insect execution," a blog on the group's website explained. "In a nutshell, our position is this: He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."
    They criticized him for killing a bug. Again, these vicious attacks you feel are being pushed on your side's politicians are fictitious. People do things in public? They'll be criticized for it whether they like it or not. Welcome to the 21st century.

    Eh... Obama isn't a vegetarian, vegan and eating dog is perfectly normal in Indonesia's non-Muslim areas. Why would Obama have to say he regrets doing something which is acceptable in a culture he visited? Does Obama have to apologize for eating chickens too? What about turkey? PETA is also opposed to eating all of those. You're being ridiculous.
