Turkeygate: Sarah Palin Gives Interview In Front of Turkey Slaughterhouse

Posted on November 21, 2008

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin gave an interview ysterday shortly after pardoning a turkey at a Wasilla turkey farm. She gave the interview right in front of a Wasilla turkey farm employee who was busy slaughtering a turkey. He kept looking back somewhat surprised that the interview was still going on as he went about his job of slaughtering turkeys. Sarah Palin should have realized that this was a little too much reality for many Americans just a few days shy of Thanksgiving and an inappropriate backdrop for a post turkey-pardon interview. Turkeygate has led to an endless stream of hilarious headlines including "Turkey-Killing Fowls Palin News Conference." Even PETA blogged about it.
