Defenders of Wildlife Targets Palin

Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund jumps out in front of other liberal groups in releasing an ad attacking Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin. It seems to be the start of much more to come, now that Obama has reportedly softened his stand against liberal 527s and advocacy groups, and donors on the Left grow more anxious about Obama's polling numbers.

The ad says Palin "actively promotes the brutal and unethical aerial hunting of wolves and other wildlife." Showing video of a hunter in an airplane, and a wolf staggering in a circle of red-stained snow, the ad asks: "Do we really want a vice president who champions such savagery?"

In case you were wondering what the group really thinks, Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund endorsed the Obama-Biden ticket today.
