Has it been five years already?
Five years ago, then-Gov. Sarah Palin pardoned a turkey in anticipation of Thanksgiving at a farm in her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska. She then chatted with reporters as a cascade of turkeys was slaughtered just over her shoulder. Our great-great-grandchildren will reenact this interview inside vast underground cities each November.
I guess it was pretty shocking for city-folk to learn that turkeys don’t come from the freezer case at the supermarket. Some of us come from places where the first three steps in fixing dinner are “catch it”, “kill it” and “clean it”.
The real significance of the non-event was it clearly demonstrated that Sarah Palin was going to continue to live rent-free in Vile Progs’ heads. The joke was on them – she got rich on their hate.
