Don't Worry, Palin; We're Still Paying Attention to You

Just not the kind of attention you'd like.

A new Web site from Defenders of Wildlife,, vows to keep "exposing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's anti-conservation agenda." See the video:

Palin, unsurprisingly, has a few things to say about the campaign. And equally unsurprising is the fact that despite responding, she has managed to say nothing of substance, nothing to counter the obvious truth that her wolf-killing efforts are anything but despicable.
See her indignant response to Defenders of Wildlife here.
And then see Defenders of Wildlife's counter to it:
As we've seen before, what you often get in response from Governor Palin when she is challenged is not a rational defense of what she’s doing, but rather name calling and a very transparent attempt at spin control. But then again, since there is no defense for her aerial wolf slaughter program, it may be that she feels there really isn’t much else she can do.
Governor Palin speaks of "science" supporting her aerial killing program, but in spite of numerous requests, they have never produced anything even resembling reasonable scientific justification. . . . Literally hundreds of wildlife scientists have repeatedly condemned her program and she has not once provided any evidence to refute their charges that what she is doing is unscientific.
