    Default Bizarre Sarah Palin Press Conference

    This press conference was held to announce the official "pardon" of the ALaska state turkey. Watch in the background as other turkeys, who have apparently not recieved the mercy of the Governor, get slaughtered.

    WEIRD!

    and in the foreground there is the Gov....talkin' 'bout how political campaigns are "brutal" and how this was good for her 'cause it's FUN and you need some "levity".. while turkey after turkey gets stuffed head first down the execution shute.....what were her people thinking?...she predicted she would get criticised ...why didn't she look behind her?

    here's the video at about 1:50 one of those turkeys starts fighting back a bit!

    Well considering she is a hunter and a meat eater it is not surprising that this didn't seem like a bad idea to her. After all she is not running for President anymore so who gives a fuck.

    Can't you see the irony of a politician giving an interview pardoning a turkey while turkeys are being killed in the background?

    and using the words "fun" "levity" and "brutal" while doing so.

    she had no clue as to what was really going on....although you would think she would have at least heard that one turkey kicking and fighting!


    edit: after seeing the link vovoid provided, it was reported that the reporter told her what was going on in the background and she was OK with it....yikes

    lmao!! That was pretty funny.

    No doubt in my mind she knew what was going on, I personally don't see a problem with it. All the people who will criticize it and say how terrible that is will be chowing down next week.

    I'm sure there will be people upset, well, get over it and have a drumstick.

    Agreed. And this applies to a lot of things that are going on in the world. As long as we don't see it happening we are ok with it...but the moment we are forced to look at it then we are suddenly outraged!!!

    Don't forget to rub some butter and herbs between the skin and the breast meat before roasting to ensure your bird is moist and has crispy skin.

    Now...as for that guy who was in the background dealing with the turkeys...he disturbed me more than the actual killing of the turkey.

    PETA anyone? I'm sure someone will speak up on the turkey's behalf, and it wouldn't suprise me if it wasn't some linker.

    Agreed, this was a little strange, but I'm sure it's no big deal to Gov. Palin. She hunts, likes to fish, she kills. It's all part of the life cycle.

    Looking forward to frying 1 of those baby's up on Wednesday!!!!

    Oh my Lord. Who needs SNL when reality is SO much wackier with this chick!
    Whew, so glad we dodged a bullet with that one.

    And yeah, HH....I'm gonna join PETA just to piss you off. Then I'm gonna partake in a big ol' turkey and a fatass ham on T-giving!



    Seriously, what are they doing? They stuff the turkey into that funnel, and it breaks their neck? I don't know about this stuff, I'm a suburban gal.

    Heck ya Eden, join PETA and then eat a bird!!! That's sorta like stealing your best friends car then going to show your best friend the new car you just got!!

    I can't tell what in hell they are doing to the turkeys. Maybe that device either breaks their necks, or maybe they smother to death in there. I dunno.....

    Nothing about this was so offense to me as her seizure-inducing voice
    and chattering syntactical diving accidents. We dodged a bullet here, people.
    Let's hope O is as lucky.

    That, right there, is what makes this amusing. I couldn't care less about the turkeys getting slaughtered, but what politician in his/her right mind speaks on camera with anything even remotely disturbing going on in the background? Classic.
