You may have seen the video of Sarah Palin being interviewed while turkeys were being, shall we say, “prepared for Thanksgiving” in the background.
I love how the nancies at the New York Times describe the turkey’s demise as if it’s a condemned political prisoner in China:
You donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to be a huge animal lover to question why Governor Palin chose to be interviewed Ã¢â‚¬â€ while issuing a traditional seasonal pardon of a turkey Ã¢â‚¬â€ while turkeys were being executed in the background.
Executed? And without blindfolds and without a last cigarette? How cruel. Oh, sorry… no last cigarette — I was only kidding, Mayor Bloomberg!
Palin probably chose to be interviewed there because she knew it would make pencil-neck metrosexuals at the Times so nervous that they’d have the turkey trots for the next two weeks. Liberals like to fool themselves into believing that the turkey on their Thanksgiving table died of natural causes, you know.
This all reminded me of of Les Nessman in the famous “turkey drop” scene in WKRP in Cincinnati.
This is kind of how the NYT would have covered Palin’s turkey pardon:
