This video interview of Governor Sarah Palin at a turkey farm has to be one of the best political videos ever produced.
John F. Kennedy supposedly started this tradition of sparing the ax, but it was officially launched by Bush 41. Now all presidents, governors, senators, congresscreatures, mayors, and councilboobs fall over themselves to pardon a turkey just before Thanksgiving. It's a classic demonstration of liberal angst, pseudo-mercy and Western guilt. Palin plays along, pardons a bird, but then chats away while its brothers' throats are slit and their bodies drained of blood behind her. It's an American Monty Pythin skit. She will forever have Sydney Brillo Duodenum's vote after this.
