Turkeys on parade

Last night John commented on the MSM/liberal outcry over Governor Palin’s interview at the Alaska turkey processing plant. “And you thought her media outings as a vice presidential candidate were as bad as it gets,” says MSNBC host David Shuster regarding the interview footage.

Referring to Shuster, Mark Steyn finds “the nancy boys at MSNBC bleating all over the screen about the Great Turkey Carnage” to be hilarious. Mark adds: “After she’s sworn in in 2013, I hope President Palin arranges for a ritual turkey slaughter to be going on behind her at every press conference, if only during David Shuster’s questions.”

Tim Blair rounds up commentary on Governor Palin’s interview at the Alaska turkey processing plant. Among the knitted brows engendered by Governor Palin’s tranquil interview, Blair finds the editors of the New York Times: “[T]he editorial board of the New York Times is worried. As well it might be, considering that the Times is being fed head-first into a bankruptcy machine.”

In a moving display of solidarity with its fellow turkeys, the Times chides Governor Palin: “You don’t have to be a huge animal lover to question why Governor Palin chose to be interviewed — while issuing a traditional seasonal pardon of a turkey — while turkeys were being executed in the background.” No, you don’t have to be a huge animal lover to question why. At least one or two other explanations come to mind.

JOHN adds: “Executed” in the background? Priceless! The Times should launch an investigation into whether the turkeys received due process before being “executed.”

UPDATE: Mark Steyn returns to the scene of the crime in “My fowl lady.”
