Palin at the turkey slaughter

I almost don’t want to write this, as the incident is getting a lot of play on other sites – and it should.

Still, we just can’t let the incredible stupidity of Sarah Palin go unnoticed. It is not just that Sarah Palin is insensitive – she is STUPID.

Now is turkey pardoning time. This is a ritual event done by the President of the United States, and most governors.  Like the President and her fellow governors, Sarah Palin pardoned a turkey, giving it a good life in some refuge or zoo. The event took place at the Triple D Farm & Hatchery in Palin’s home state of Alaska.

After pardoning a turkey, Palin gave a television interview, spewing forth her platitudes, while still at the Triple D Farm & Hatchery. As the interview progressed a gruesome scene took place in the background. One of Triple D’s employes went to work slaughtering turkeys – not a pleasant sight.

The turkeys have their throat slit, and then are placed in a funnel-shape device while the blood and the life drains out of them. The turkeys are still moving as they slowly die.

Reporters asked Palin a standard question. What made this day so important to the aspiring president?

Palin turned her head slightly to the man shoving the turkeys down a metal death funnel, replied: “This was neat. I was happy to get invited to participate in this. For one, you need a bit of levity in this job.”

If you can take it, here is the entire show.

    OMG! Sorry to leave you hanging. In that article, I was the MC, introducing Sarah Palin, who I thought said it all. I guess Sarah is not enough of a performer to get the point across. She was a bit insensitive, to say the least. So, let me ring the curtain down with the punch line – Sarah Palin, what a turkey!
