The President didn't yield to PETA and went ahead with that silly pardon the turkey exercise and this year people got to vote for their favorite of two birds. Cobbler won.
The fact we have to "pardon" a bird instead of just hauling it off to the kitchen is a sign of our reluctance to discuss what we really do to animals before we eat them....
I am not a Vegan or a PETA person, but I do think the pardoning is something this transformational and progressive President should have spurned.
