Some Huffington Post posts have to be seen to believe....
UPDATE: At least we weren't forced to watch one of these in use. Good luck, hunters!!
UPDATE 2: Great site detailing the outpouring of horrified outrage at the ghoulish acts of turkey fiends.
Some videos you just have to see to believe. On Thursday, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin appeared in Wasilla in order to pardon a local turkey in anticipation of Thanksgiving. This proved to be a slightly absurd but ultimately unremarkable event. But what came next was positively surreal. After the pardon Palin proceeded to do an interview with a local TV station while the turkeys were being SLAUGHTERED in the background Seemingly oblivious to the gruesomeness going on over her shoulder, she carries on talking for over three minutes. Watch the video below to see for yourself. Be warned, it's kind of gruesome.Sarah Palin Turkey Incident: Does TV Interview While Turkeys Are Slaughtered In The Background VIDEO. And then the woman "who will be in charge of the Turkey" goes on to say about the horrible murder and mutilation of these poor innocent birds, these feathered fellow travelers on this journey called life:
"Certainly we'll probably invite criticism for even doing this too, but at least this was fun".
For all his talk of transformation, Obama's earliest decisions suggest something odd: The more things change, the more they look like the 1990s. Some predict a Clinton Restoration in the making.Obama's Clinton-era picks tend to fit the Bill -- chicagotribune.com. Yup. Welcome to the 90's. Especially with this choice.
"....Sergeant Pepper taught the band to....." no, wait.... That's not it. That's not it at all. It was ninety years ago today ..... that the guy on the right began to make his way home after helping to win the War to End All War. To go to northern Wisconsin. To work. To meet my grandmother. To begin his family.
Happy Veteran's Day to all those who served.
CNN — Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said that even though his party didn’t win the presidential election, he has at least one thing to be happy about. “I can get back into the bedroom, so there's the big advantage,” the California governor said Sunday on CNN’s “Late Edition.” Schwarzenegger, a leading Republican, is married to Maria Shriver, a member of the very Democratic Kennedy clan. Shriver endorsed Barack Obama in February, just days after her husband announced his support of John McCain. Schwarzenegger said his wife has been “gloating now for these last few days” and running around the house with a life-size cutout of Obama saying, “We won.”CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Calif. governor says he’s allowed ‘back into the bedroom’ « - Blogs from CNN.com.
Russia will place short-range missile systems on the EU's eastern border to counter planned US missile defence installations in Eastern Europe, President Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday. "Iskander missile systems will be deployed in the Kaliningrad region to neutralise the missile defence system," Medvedev said...... The United States is pursuing plans to build a radar base in the Czec Republic and install interceptor missiles in Poland to counter what it describes as a missile threat from "rogue states" such as Iran. Russia has said there is no such threat and that the installations are in fact a direct threat to its security. High-level negotiations between the US and Russia on the installations have ended with no compromise.Russia to base missiles on EU border: Medvedev.
Well, that's over. After an extremely long-hour shift Monday night into Tuesday afternoon, I settled exhausted on the sofa last night to watch election returns come in. I had a little college-style drinking game in mind, to take a swig every time I heard the word "historic". Luckily I decided to not follow through, or I would have been passed out cold by 6pm. With all of the polls and talk of landslides over the last couple of weeks, I've been wondering how it would go. How are the conservative/Republican/non-Obama disciples going to take this? And yeah, I'm one of them too. They say "Be careful what you wish for" and a lot of people got that last night. But how about those of us who didn't get what we wished for? Are we going to whine about voter fraud and how the election was stolen-- or in Obama's case, purchased after reneging on a campaign financing promise? Are we going to chant "selected, not elected"? Are there going to be personal comparisons of the man with Hitler or chimps (or both at the same time) the first time he forgets to walk on water, when people find out that yes, they still have to pay their mortgages? I'd like to think most of us have a little more class than some of the that. I hope. It's a new day in the same great country. Let's remember that. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ On a last note: Was Oprah Winfrey the *only* Democrat CNN could find to interview?
