Palin the Turkey Killer

Update: MSNBC reports that Palin says she was aware of the massacre, that several turkeys were slaughtered during the interview, and no she wasn't bothered by it. True story.

-Original Post-

Greatest turkey killing video ever. (No, I don't advocate the slaughter of innocent animals, just the humiliation of not so innocent politicians). Palin with the money quotes to help the video. She says, she's always in charge of the turkey and "this was neat ... you need a little bit of levity in this job. Certainly we'll probably invite criticism for doing this too, but at least this was fun." Too true. Props for this moment in history go to the cameraman for not changing the shot and the turkey slaughter guy for daring to do it right on camera.

From CNN:
But former Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin is causing a stir for an interview she gave after pardoning an Alaska turkey Thursday, during which one bird was being slaughtered in the background.

Palin appeared unaware of what was going on directly behind her, though she did seem to take a glance at the unfortunate event at one particular point during the interview.

"It's nice to support a local business and just participate in something that isn't so heavy handed politics that invites criticism," Palin said during the interview. "Certainly will probably invite criticism for even doing this too, but at least it was fun."

"I am always in charge of the turkey so I am where I need to be today to prepare for that," she also said.
