Sorry, me again. I felt compelled to add this note. I'm admittedly no expert on turkey pardoning, but at the two rituals I have partially glimpsed this year, the Bush and the Palin pardonings, both turkeys have been, er... white.
I'm wondering if there's some special significance to be read in this observation? I trust that next year our President will not choose a fancy white bird, but a plain old black one.
