(CNN) – Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”

Now, there are reasons to be dubious about Palin's inclusiveness-- quoting Pegler (an energetic anti-Semite) about the wonderfulness of small towns doesn't look great. Neither does going to a church where a preacher from Jews for Jesus was welcome.

However, none of this has anything to do with whether she hunts, and saying that it does is exactly the rural/urban divide that drives some voter's away from the Democrats, and I can't say they're wrong to not trust a party which includes politicians that view them as murderers.
