‘Emotion is not leadership’: Sarah Palin tweaks Obama, Bloomberg in NRA speech

Sarah Palin took the stage at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum in Houston, Texas, this afternoon wearing a “Women Hunt” T-shirt and left soon after to a standing ovation. (The Right Scoop has the video.)

“Women hunt” certainly doesn’t seem to be that controversial of a statement, but we’ve seen before just what sort of hateful comments (and even death threats) a photo of a woman and her hunting trophy can inspire.

Palin’s speech was less than 15 minutes, but she managed to fit in jabs against the poodle-skirted lapdog media, emotional exploitation of gun violence victims, Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s runaway nanny state and more.
