the palin turkey massacre video

She really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Her “Turkey Massacre Interview” is so … post-modern.

I admit I was a bit slow picking up on this one. It is, perhaps, best viewed with no explanation whatsoever.

Here is
the video. Enjoy. Happy Thanksgiving!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Palin moment without some subsequent prevarication. From Andrew Sullivan:

The wack-job is once again denying reality. Here's a sane person:
Scott Jensen is the one who filmed the scene. He’s local station KTUU’s award winning chief photographer. He told CC from KUDO radio yesterday that Sarah Palin, who was standing next to her personal assistant throughout the entire interview, chose the spot on which she stood for the “turkey slaughter interview” that quickly went viral on the internet, and received wide coverage in the news media. The turkey slaughter was already underway when the governor chose the spot. The photographer pointed out what was going on and asked her if she wanted to move. She said, “No worries.”

But Palin is now denying all of it, and implicitly calling the photographer a liar:
“The [Alaska] governor did not know it was going on behind her,” Palin’s spokesperson tells ET of the reportedly grisly scene at Triple D Farm & Hatchery outside Wasilla. Cameras captured Palin extending the annual Thanksgiving pardon to one turkey while a farm hand slaughtered the bird’s feathered friends in the background.
Who are you going to believe: Palin or your lyin' eyes?
OK, while I’m at it, I was a bit slow passing this along. Here is Bush at the APEC meeting in Peru being snubbed by his fellow world leaders (or was it the other way around?):

Watch the video.

57 days. But who's counting.

"57 days. But who's counting?"

From appearances, Bush is defintely counting the days. In fact, it seems as though he's already checked out and, as has been his liefelong practice, left a mess for someone else to clean up.

Instead of the traditional presidential library SMU should just dig a big hole in the ground, pour other people's money into it, and set it on fire.

Sarah Palin is proof that there is a God and he loves the Daily Show.
You can't make this stuff up.

I get that she's standing in front of a fellow working on a dead turkey. Why is that a big deal? The ceremonial pardoning of a turkey is silly, considering how many other millions get sent to the slaughterhouse, but meat isn't grown in nicely wrapped celophane.
