Self-righteous jackassery

Remember when I told you that much of the contempt - ah, hell, most of the contempt - I have for vegan/vegetarian types is because of their "insufferable self-righteousness" ...? Well, here's that insufferable self-righteousness on full display:

[Andrew] Hunt is a devout vegan who, according to Ontario's The Record, has written [Sarah] Palin a letter extolling the virtues of a vegan lifestyle, which is a diet devoid of any and all animal products, including cheeses and milk. The Republican Party's 2008 Vice Presidential candidate is a very public hunting enthusiast.

But wait, there's more: A professor of history at the University of Waterloo, Hunt promises cordial, weekly letters to Palin about animal rights, vegan recipes, and his experiences as an ex-carnivore.

Hunt hopes to compile these letters into a books, with the proceeds going towards animal sanctuaries in both the US and Canada.

Not a damn thing that Andrew Young says or does is going to convince Sarah Palin to stop hunting -- and he knows it. Thus, the whole letter-writing exercise is nothing but self-righteous jackassery.

Now excuse me while I finish making a ham sammich ...

Edit Andrew Young before he sends you a letter extolling the virtues of eating crow.
