Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. A picture has been posted on Sarah Palin's social media of the Republican pin-up girl holding a dead bear while posing with two guns.
Why? In response to an invitation to come on Piers Morgan's talk show of course.
Perhaps most curious of all (the dead bear is hardly surprising) is the blurred, stylised border Palin has applied to the snap. Is this the birth of hipstamatic, instagramic Palin? For the sake of Alaskan wildlife, let's hope not.
Below is Ms Palin's missive to Morgan via facebook, along with a few responses from some of her followers...
Oh dear Piers, thank you so much for all your invitations to appear on your shambolic show, including the adoring message you sent. But is it still any wonder why I've politely responded that I'm too busy doing, um, er... pretty much anything to accept the invite? (At least I didn't tell you to “get stuffed”.) And to all our British friends: we ask, what did your friends across the pond ever do to you to deserve your Piers?
