Sarah Palin Earns Prestigious Rubber Dodo Award
The second annual Rubber Dodo Award goes to... Sarah Palin.
The Center for Biological Diversity honored her with the 2008 award for her valiant efforts to protect her state's oil industry -- sacrificing the well-being of our earth, our climate, the polar bear, and numerous other warming-threatened species in the process.
Starting in 2006, Palin worked hard to block the government from protecting the polar bear under the Endangered Species Act -- and when the bear was declared "threatened" anyway, she sued, joined shortly thereafter by her oil-industry friends. According to the Center's executive director KierĂ¡n Suckling, Palin's lawsuit will put her in the history books as perhaps the only person ever to have accused the Bush administration of excessive use of the Endangered Species Act.
The Center's Rubber Dodo Award is reserved every year for the person in public or private service whom we feel has done the most to contribute to endangered species' extinction.
Last year, we gave the award to Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne.

"I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a 'community organizer,' except that you have actual responsibilities." Sarah Palin
Jesus Christ was a community organizer. Pontius Pilate was a governor.
Perhaps “good Christian” Sarah Palin should consider that.
