Sarah Palin Pardons Turkey…But Misses the Rest Being Slaughtered Behind Her

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin granted the traditional Thanksgiving pardon to one lucky turkey this week, but the video that shocked some viewers captured what was happening in the background.

Could her PR team have picked a worse background for the interview?

From the Associated Press:

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.

On the video, Palin didn’t comment about the slaughter as she answered questions, saying she’s thankful that her son’s Stryker brigade is relatively safe in Iraq and the rest of her family is healthy and happy. She said she’s glad to be back in Alaska.

“This was neat,” she said of the outing. “I was happy to get to be invited to participate in this. For one, you need a little bit of levity in this job, especially with so much that has gone in the last couple of months that has been so political obviously that it’s nice to get out and do something to promote a local business and to just participate in something that isn’t so heavy-handed politics that it invites criticism. Certainly we’ll probably invite criticism for even doing this, too, but at least this was fun.”

    I’m shocked!

    (For those of you with ADD and only focus on the bird – there is actually a very shocking message).

    The shocker: A state actually saved money during a surplus!

    Ok, I’m officially shocked!

    Other states like Illinois spent all their surplus and now asking for help. What if companies did this – saved money for a rainy day – instead of spend.

    It is really common sense. We need that in our government.

    And the reason why so many people are still talking about Palin is because she is a threat. You see the Obama administration is so focused on presentation, even to a fault, spending great time making sure they look good.

    The biggest threat to Obama’s strategy is having someone who is real and authentic come along with an actual REAL record to show for it.

    So what a turkey is slaughtered. I’d rather my leaders spend her time worrying about government spending, than making sure her setup is perfect.

    But as for Me…

    I look at the record of leaders, not how they present themselves. Saving money. Now that’s smart.
