Grizzlies To Die For

Karen Handel

Running for governor of Georgia.

First, I had to get past the fact the Vanity Fair slideshow is one big Palin pander-fest.  Clearing that hurdle, though, I was able to enjoy this pic of Grizzley #5, Georgia GOP candidate for  Governor, Karen Handel.  Actually, I think I like the storage unit background as much as Karen and her artillery. Bear hunting, anyone?

(image: caption: As Georgia’s secretary of state from 2007 to 2010, Karen Handel passed the Help America Vote Act, requiring that individuals provide documentation proving citizenship when they register to vote (a law opposed by the A.C.L.U. and the Hispanic community). Arizona governor Jan Brewer—a fierce advocate of the controversial Arizona immigration law—has endorsed Handel, stating that she “will fight to pass similar illegal immigration laws in Georgia.” Palin, for her part, called Handel “a pro-life, pro-Constitutionalist with a can-do attitude.”)
