Another pardon

As is the tradition, President Bush pardoned the White House Thanksgiving turkey today (actually, turkeys). This little tradition dates back to 1947. Every year since Truman was in the White House, the National Thanksgiving Turkey (yes, that is its official title) is presented to the president and he ceremoniously pardons it.

I'm sick of these bird being pardoned. It is time to send one of these to the White House dinner table. I'd love it if Bush said, "ah hell, let's cook this baby up. Dick, get yer gun!"

Bush still has one Thanksgiving left in office. I think he should be the first to not pardon the bird After all, he's had the balls to invade two countries in 5 years. It shouldn't be too hard for him to wack a bird. Besides, who is left that he could piss off.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone (even those not from the USA). Have a beer.

I think there are two main reasons: Cheney's heart and the halted executions:
