The Real Meaning of Thanksgiving?

If your (American) family is long on tradition like mine, then Thanksgiving day is just an excuse to get together and feast with relatives, some of whom you prefer to see only once a year. This year I’m giving thanks for a whole new set of reasons, not the least of which is the resounding defeat of the McCain/Palin ticket. Yes, I’m still gloating!

If anyone still doubts that keeping Gramps McCain and his utterly bizarre and inappropriate choice for a running mate out of the white house, then watch this YouTube video of Sarah Palin back home in Alaska as she pardons a turkey from slaughter, while in the background other less-fortunate turkeys are mechanically executed by a very self-conscious farm worker.

It has to be one of the funniest yet most pathetic things I’ve ever seen, and I’m so very grateful that this woman is no longer just a hearbeat away from the presidency. Gobble gobble!
