No Fishing at Sea Kitten State Beach

No matter how bad things get under Comrade Obama, at least we have PETA for comic relief. The latest word in their campaign to have fish renamed “sea kittens” so that we’ll feel too guilty to eat them:

PETA sent a letter to California State Parks Director Ruth Coleman on Wednesday offering to pay to keep Pescadero State Beach open, but only if it is renamed Sea Kitten State Beach.

Pescadero State Beach is among the 219 state parks slated for closure under Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s plan to close a $26.3 billion deficit.

The term “sea kitten” is an effort to evoke the same sympathy for fish that people feel for cats and dogs, according to PETA Manager of Campaigns Lindsay Rajt.

“Pescadero means ‘the place to fish,’ so we thought by renaming it ‘Sea Kitten State Beach’ we could make it the place for fish instead of fishing,” she said. …

Asked if not renaming the beach to include the term “sea kitten” is a deal breaker, Rajt said: “It would be.” Although if the state agreed to prohibit fishing at the beach in return for funds, PETA “would perhaps consider it,” she said.

Maybe liberals would stop killing their own children if we call them “womb kittens.”
