Yes we can…
…eat turkey. Well, except for the one with the Presidential pardon.
President Obama may differ from his immediate predecessor on a variety of policy issues, but one they share is the singular pardon of a turkey for Thanksgiving.
Obama pardoned the lucky bird with these words: “There are certain days that remind me of why I ran for this office. And then there are moments like this where I pardon a turkey and send it to Disneyland.”
Whether or not former Alaska Governor, new book author and rumored 2012 Presidential candidate Sarah Palin will again pardon a turkey and/or take the “Going Rogue” book signing to a turkey farm is unknown.
