Sarah Palin Calls for Democrats to Play Nice. Who Can Take Her Seriously? Not Jon Stewart

Sarah Palin Calls for Democrats to Play Nice. Who Can Take Her Seriously? Not Jon Stewart | Daily Crew | Scoop.it

Sarah Palin was at it again last week. I guess she is suffering from media deprivation so she just had to say a few outrageous things to bring back the cameras. She's still playing the victim and still living in a distorted world where liberals wear the black hats and conservatives are good and holy. Palin accuses evil liberals of telling lies and swears up and down she cannot think of one Republican who lies and distorts things the way liberals do. ( I guess she has never heard of Rush Limbaugh) but nevermind.

On August 7, the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) issued new data confirming that the Hawaiʻi-based longline fisheries are killing false killer whales (Pseudorca crassidens, a large dolphin species) at unsustainable rates. The new information highlights the need for NMFS to promptly finalize and implement a plan to protect false killer whales in Hawaiian waters, as required by the federal Marine Mammal Protection Act. In June 2012, Earthjustice, representing the Center for Biological Diversity and Turtle Island Restoration Network, sued NMFS in federal court over the agency’s failure to finalize the plan, which was due in December 2011.
