Sarah Palin EffIgy:


 

Now Hanging around a Republican’s House

By Jennifer Bingham

The torch (or noose) has been passed. When a Sarah Palin effigy was removed in West Hollywood , California , Dr. Charlotte Laws, a Greater Valley Glen Councilmember and animal rights advocate, immediately erected one outside her home in Woodland Hills , California in a bold, political statement. Next to the effigy are pictures of smiling Sarah by her bloody kill. Laws asks the question, “Which is more offensive? Palin’s butchered corpses or a plastic doll attached to the roof?” Laws argues that McCain has lost Republican and Independent votes by choosing a heartless animal killer for a running mate.

The turmoil created by the West Hollywood effigy is hard to comprehend when one compares it with the lack of concern (by most media, politicians and members of the public) for Palin’s heartlessness on animal issues and cluelessness about the environment. Laws argues, “Palin’s hunting abilities are exalted because she is a woman; female politicians typically have to act like males in order to appear tough enough to compete for the White House, whereas Palin has been able to remain feminine and exude a tough image through her murder of animals. It is disturbing that this cruelty is praised rather than condemned.”    

Laws is a Registered Republican and strong John McCain supporter. Although she worked on McCain’s 2000 campaign and believes he would be an excellent President, she hopes for an Obama victory. Laws says, “Palin should not have any power, any access to the White House or any access to John McCain. She would set animal welfare and environmentalism back decades.” Laws is disturbed by McCain’s recent comments on Larry King Live in which he admitted that he would have to reconsider drilling in ANWR because Sarah will insist.    

Laws is only one of a growing number of Republicans who largely cast their vote based on candidate’s platform / record on animal issues. Laws’ daughter, actress Kayla Laws, has already voted for Obama even though she calls herself a “conservative Republican.”

The Palin effigy will remain in place until after the election on November 4, 2008.
