Talkin' Turkey with Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin is truly the gift that keeps on giving. This video is not to be believed. According to Huffington Post:

Some videos you just have to see to believe. On Thursday, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin appeared in Wasilla in order to pardon a local turkey in anticipation of Thanksgiving. This proved to be a slightly absurd but ultimately unremarkable event. But what came next was positively surreal. After the pardon Palin proceeded to do an interview with a local TV station
while the turkeys were being SLAUGHTERED in the background!! Seemingly oblivious to the
gruesomeness going on over her shoulder, she carries on talking for over three minutes. Watch the video below to see for yourself. Be warned, it's kind of gruesome.

My favorite parts of this are at the beginning, where she talks about how brutal the campaign is. I'll give her that, but she is talking about this while turkeys are being slaughtered! And then at the end when she discusses what she is responsible for bringing to the Thanksgiving table.

You folks all have a real happy Thenksgiving now, 'kay?

That was a bit gruesome and at the same time hillarious.

That was freakin' hilarious. In all fairness though, turkey for "please, God, I'm not ready to die!" sounds just like "hey, don't hog all the chow, buddy." She was probably focused on the interviewer and just thinking they were making noise in the pen behind her. The turkey guy, though- COME ON! Hello? Camera? He totally knew what he was doing. That's a fellow crazy eccentric Alaskan for you.

The turkey guy cracked me up! It was his 15 minutes of fame. And she knew exactly what she was doing. She was asked if she wanted to move and she said she didn't see anything wrong with the backdrop. LOL.

Indeed, the turkey guy is definitely the star of the show. I know I wasn't paying any attention to much that Palin said because I was so preoccupied with the guy in the background.
