How anxious are people to prove how much smarter they are than Sarah Palin? So smart that “pro” journalists at Agence France-Presse, CNN, and the Washington Post have all fallen for and passed along obviously fake stories about her. So when Palin herself posted a photo of son Trig using the family dog as a step stool, it started an animal abuse tweeting frenzy among liberals and inspired PETA to report Palin to its own Cruelty Investigation Department.

One person went so far as to label Palin a “sociopath” for posting the photo. Fortunately, “animal rights activist” and RedState editor-in-chief Erick Erickson managed to track down another sicko who gets off on posting photos of animal abuse.

Remember how crazy the Left went when Ellen DeGeneres posted that photo? No? We don’t either.

Hey PETA, this hashtag would make an awesome fundraising T-shirt.
