Go Away, Your Fifteen Minutes Are Up

Remember Sarah Palin? Today, she visited a rustic Alaskan turkey abattoir to grant a ceremonial "pardon" to a bird...while she blithely babbled on about her holiday plans and her political critics, one of her constituents was behind her, forcing a struggling turkey head-first into a gore-crusted metal funnel serving as a combination meat-grinder/ guillotine.

The executioner kept pausing in his work to turn around and gawk at Ms. Palin, extending the suffering of the poor turkey for long, grindingly painful moments. On the TV news, they blurred out the blood and gore, but you can see the whole bloody mess here. It's hard to stomach.

Is a high-spirited publicity romp through a charnel house considered "mavericky"? What political purpose does using a trough-full of turkey guts as a speechifyin' backdrop serve? Is she seeking the LeatherFace vote in 2012?

I hope this incident is a swan song for Sister Sarah, but sadly, it's probably not.

Well, I think her turkey supporters know the jig is up. That pardon was strictly pandering, and I think they're pissed off after seeing how Palin really feels about them.

Why can't we do to her what she does to those turkeys?

LOL at yellowdog granny!

i guess it's too hard to shoot turkeys from a helicopter or low flying plane.

Well, ya know, she's just showin' the good folks of this great land that perhaps there's some interest there too, in huntin' and just makin' use of all our natural resources, like the turkeys, and also too, it's about energy independence, and killin' your own food is perhaps part of that Alaskan adventurous spirit, and bein' a real American, ya know.

When it comes to Sarah Palin, you can't make this shit up. Talk about drinking the Kool-Aid, I seriously can not figure her followers out.

I wish FOX would offer her big bucks to have her own show, you know, like the new "Huckabee!" show, so she could get her ego fix, those who love her can watch her, and those who think she's a flaming idiot will never have to be exposed to her incomprehensible monologues again.

I decided not to watch the video - I'll take your word for it - but the woman just sickens me.
