Sarah Palin turkey video

For msnbc, Palin can do no right. Even the traditional pardon of a turkey is used as an excuse for mocking her.

For some reason these people think that killing turkeys is something to be ashamed of. There is no doubt, though, that they all eat turkey on Thanksgiving. They just like their reality sanatized so they can pretend it doesn't happen (between mouthfulls).

That's the only reason one can assume they find anything to mock about killing turkeys for the market.

From the msnbc site (Associated Press article):

Turkeys slaughtered as Palin addresses media

WASILLA, Alaska - Gov. Sarah Palin has granted the traditional Thanksgiving pardon to one lucky turkey, but the video that shocked some viewers captured what was happening in the background.

As she answered questions Thursday at Triple D Farm & Hatchery outside Wasilla, cameras from the Anchorage Daily News and others showed the bloody work of an employee slaughtering birds behind the former Republican vice presidential candidate.
