Vicious Anti-Palin Ad

Here's the ad (and my first attempt to embed a video):

Wow. Here's more info on the subject.

To briefly sum up, Palin claims, based on shaky scientific evidence, that Alaska's wolves kill too many moose and caribou, so those Alaskan natives who are subsistence hunters go hungry (and also deprives red-blooded Americans of delicious, nutritious mooseburgers). Non-government scientists who have examined Alaskan wolves and their prey disagree, saying that wolves are mostly scavengers, eating moose who died of other causes.

In addition to borderline animal cruelty, this story demonstrates Palin's troubling tendency to pick out which "science" she chooses to believe while ignoring others. Remind you of anyone we know?
