Howard started off the show noting that John McCain’s running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, is a proponent of aerial wolf hunting; a practice which involves flying around in plane until you spot a wolf, chasing it until it’s exhausted – and then leaning out of the plane and shooting it with a rifle.

Artie joked that it must be different: “People don’t realize that in Alaska, they have flying wolves.” Later, Ben Stern called in to say Palin was insufficiently vetted by the McCain campaign: “I think there was a mistake.”
