Sorry for the vulgarity, but I am unable to believe that this is happening. Ann Althouse applied the term in response to the dumb asses who got their panties in a bunch because Sarah Palin, after doing the customary, clichéd chief-executive-pardons-a-turkey-before-Thanksgiving schtick gave an interview to a reporter while still on the grounds of the turkey farm. And get this - they actually kill and bleed out turkeys on this turkey farm! More than that, Sarah Palin is an IDIOT, and a CRUEL and HEARLTESS one at that, because she, um, gave an interview while the turkey farm continued to function in the background! The horror!
Like Eric Scheie, I didn't think this was serious - at first, I thought it was either a few PETA types being PETA types, or some lefty goofballs trying to lay a trap to get Palin supporters to overreact. Sadly, it sure appears that the morons who find anything objectionable in this video are, in fact, serious. I don't think the English language has sufficient verbiage for me to express how ridiculous these losers are. Hey, poltroons, enjoy your turkey - it was once a living, breathing bird that had to be killed before it reached your table. I know a lot of you have a problem understanding biology, particularly as it pertains to how humans come into being, but never did I think that you didn't understand what turkeys (or chickens, or cows, or pigs) were before they became table meat.
I think perhaps the Big O does, though (or at least he doesn't let it stop him from indulging in chicken wings):
