Sarah Palin: Dying caribou have to ‘take one for the team’ so we can expand oil pipelines

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2015/02/sarah-palin-dying-caribou-have-to-take-one-for-the-team-so-we-can-expand-oil-pipelines/

rmer Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) said this week that caribou that died as a result of oil pipeline expansions would have to “take one for the team.”

According to Forbes’ Christopher Helman, Palin delighted members of the oil and gas industry in a speech to the North American Prospect Expo (NAPE) in Texas on Thursday.

She recalled to the crowd that what she missed most about being Alaska’s governor was making decisions about oil and gas exploration.


“Energy is my baby,” Palin explained, adding that oil and gas could “feed and fuel a hungry nation with what God has created for man’s responsible use.

2. What message will she leave for her grandchildren's grandchildren?





I hope she'll leave a thank you note for the oil that won't be around by then.


"Thanks kids, but we thought we needed it more than you."

7. Palin has crossed so far into self parody that Tina Fey can only sit back in stunned disbelief.

Nobody considers her a serious figure at this point and yet she keeps doubling down on herself.

11. Her Trans-Canada pipeline through Alaska was her biggest debacle

As Alaska Governor, she pushed through 500 million in taxpayer funds for Trans-Canada (of Keystone XL) to build a pipeline through Alaska to the Pacific coast. Trans-Canada then abandoned the pipeline when their Board of Directors decided it was not worth the expense. Palin and the Alaska taxpayers were left holding the bag, and her political popularity sank to zero.
