Sarah Palin Turkey Pardon Video
This is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. Imagine watching an episode of Saturday night live where there is a TV interview and the interviewee is the straight person and the comedy is what is going on in the background. So here is the skit (though it isn't really a skit), Governor Palin just pardons a turkey for Thanksgiving. The news reporters ask her all kinds of questions and she answers them all. Meanwhile, in the background, I blood covered farm worker feeds turkeys into a grinder to drain their blood as the flail around and shake the whole apparatus. Sarah is oblivious as the turkey is pulled out limp and another one is fed into the machine. And as if SNL were writing her script, she even says "I'll probably even be criticized for this." Watch the whole thing, it is lovely. I even think the reporters intentionall kept her answering question to get the footage.
