Gunnin' for the White House

When reality TV superstar Sarah Palin knocked off a caribou for the cameras, the rifle shot reverberated across the Republican Party's presidential short list.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty reportedly scrambled outside to blast a deer, Newt Gingrich boasted of gunning down an illegal alien and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee spanked a monkey.

Mitt Romney had to be talked out of renting a tank and former Vice President Dick Cheney shot a guy in the face for old times' sake.

The quadrennial ritual of presidential wannabes taking up arms (and donning brand-new blaze orange) is a transparently choreographed salute to the Second Amendment and the NRA -- a big game that promises to be even more cartoonish in Election 2012 as Palin's caribou kill shot echoes from Alaska to Iowa.

By busting a cap into that reindeer's face, Palin fired a warning shot aimed at a certain confused pack of elephants -- she is the hunter and they are the prey. Reload!
