I Can't Help It

I'm sorry, but this is just too good not to pass up or post. Yes, the election is over and yes, Obama won so just why am I posting this Sara Palin interview? Because this is just too crazy!!!

According to the 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."

So, I'll armchair quarterback this video. See the guy in the background with those big silver things? They're called "killing cones". You put the bird in the top and its head sticks out the bottom. Below the cones, that's a 50-gallon Rubbermaid livestock water tank. The same kind we use here out in the goat pastures. It's there to catch the blood after the arteries in the turkey's neck is severed. He takes an obviously dead bird out of a cone and brings in a live one. See the bird struggling toward the end of the interview? That's the tell-tale "flap of death". He slaughtered the bird while she was giving her freaking interview? So much for a pardon. I think this video is indicative of the entire GOP--all smoke & mirrors while they slit your throat in the background. Oh, by the way, is that $275 Burberry scarf one that the RNC missed when they took back all the Neiman Marcus booty? Maybe it was a consolation prize for Miss Sarah.
