People can’t seem to get enough of Sarah Palin in a bikini. The mother of five and soon-to-be grandmother of one, is even being noticed by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). They’ve featured the Alaska governor in a new game and apparently Palin’s camp is not happy about it.
Want to pelt Palin with snowballs? Even Madonna and the Olsen twins are featured, among other celebs. I actually played it – and kids will love it. They may not know why they’re throwing snowballs at famous people, but it’s entertaining to say the least. Hey, if you’ve got some time to sit mindlessly and click your mouse, then this is for you.
PETA’s plan was to urge Internet users to help make the holidays safe for animals by “fighting back against notorious animal abusers.”
Ingrid Newkirk, PETA’s president, claims she received a call from a rep (who didn’t reveal their identity) from Palin’s office, threatening to sue if they didn’t remove the game from their website. Talk to the lawyers says PETA!
PETA’S VP, Bruce Friedrich said, “Sarah Palin is a bully who never saw an animal she didn’t want to kill, so it’s not surprising that her staff would try to intimidate us anonymously and then backtrack when called out. Our game represents a fun way to focus attention on a very serious subject – cruelty to animals supported by Sarah Palin and other targets of the game – and we have no intention of taking it down in response to these pathetic attempts at intimidation.”
Communications director for Palin’s office, Bill McAllister, said that they are not upset about the game at all.
“We take all kinds of shots all the time. We realize we’re a fair target. I could care less about the game.”
He added, “This allegation about a lawsuit is just too much. No one in our office knew anything about it. And PETA has refused to say who called.”
Gather the kids around and have some laughs – you can play the game here. I love the portrayal of Madonna too – just as scary as real life. Hey, maybe when Madonna is acting like a unreasonable parent (according to her pre-teen daughter), Lourdes can take her frustrations out by throwing snowballs at her mother! Same goes for Sarah’s kids.
