PETA asks Obama to skip turkey pardoning - POLITICO.com

     I am with PETA on this one...The turkey pardon ritual is kind of foolish....46 million birds will be harvested for their Thanksgiving duty...It's what it is and we all like the meat, but the silly pardoning is one holiday tradition we can do without.

 
    I did one of these phony ceremonies last year at the Zoo....I wouldn't again. It's just an inane photo op not worthy of coverage. Kind of like Punxatawny Phil.

I too think this turkey pardon thing is stupid. Since PETA is carping about it however, the thing to do would be to butcher the thing and give it to a soup kitchen, just to fry those PETA weenies. I'd butcher it myself just to see em really scream!

Enough of all the propaganda from groups like PETA. If you don't like it move on.

Where's a naked female PETA protester when we need one?

When our Presidents pardoned a turkey it is a fun event. We, collectively, had our tongues in our cheeks and enjoyed it in a true bi-partisan way. No politics. The Vegans and PETAs need to watch something else for those five minutes. Get over it-it is a tradition!
