Sarah Palin Shows Gordon Ramsay How Meat Is Murder

by | 22nd, November 2008

SARAH Palin shows the US that the turkey on their plate was once alive and full of blood and brains.

The US rears between 250million and 300million turkey for laughter each year.

And in the LA Times strict vegan Elizabeth Snead notes:

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin pardons Tom the Turkey, then blabbles on, making little to no sense (as usual), while talking turkey and politics to a news crew. What she does not know is that at least two helpless turkeys are being slaughtered alive in the background, their legs wiggling as their heads are stuffed into a grinder by a smiling camera-hog executioner.

Nice to see someone who enjoys their work, huh?

Slaughtered alive. The swine! Can’t the killers wait for the birds to die in their sleep and then kill them?

Elsewhere in the LA Times:

The dry-brined turkey technique inspired by chef Judy Rodgers is a huge hit with Times readers.

Recipe: Roast salted turkey

Palin has pardoned one Alaskan turkey. Says she:

“This was neat,” she told reporters, referring to her “pardon” of a turkey.

“I was happy to get to be invited to participate in this. For one, you need a little bit of levity in this job… It’s nice to get out and… participate in something that isn’t so heavy-handed politics that it invites criticism.”

(It is a Thanksgiving custom in America for the president and other officials to officially pardon a turkey.)

Says the Seatlle Post Intelligence:

The election is over, but Gov. Sarah Palin continues to provide gaffes aplenty.

Is it a gaffe to show people how turkeys die and that she is not afrid of the truth, however unappetising?

As Mark Steyn says:

“I didn’t think I could like Sarah Palin more than I do, but the nancy boys at MSNBC bleating all over the screen about the Great Turkey Carnage is hilarious.”

Sarah Palin, she’s the Gordon Ramsay of politics, only tougher and not so panicy.
