The irony of a right-wing conservative, who boasts of hunting moose and shooting wolves while campaigning for more oil drilling in Alaska, transforming herself into a nature fan for prime time, has not been lost on environmentalists.
Um, where’s the irony?
She enjoys the outdoors, and wants a few acres of a vast wilderness tapped for it’s energy. There’s not the faintest hint of irony there, unless you’re an extremest environmentalist.
(The report mainly deals with the claim she was fishing closer than allowed to bears. I suspect that that was the point – to make it look like she was to garner more attention.)
