Turkey pardon stupidity

I will actively campaign for an exception to the 22nd amendment for any president that skips this stupid-assed turkey pardon shit. What are we? A nation of 8 year olds?

It's been going on for generations. Don't sweat the small shit.

I saw a clip of the pardon. At the end, Obama blessed the turkey with the sign of the cross. That should upset conservative Catholics, although Pope Francis might get a chuckle out of it.

IMPEACH OBAMMER

On April 15th of every year, the president should run a lottery one lucky American doesn't have to pay taxes that year. Ideally the whole production should cost more than that one person's taxes.

Considering turkeys are all guilty and unrepentant as fuck, they really should not be getting Presidential pardons. :evil:

I was going to post the Palin Turkey Massacree clip but I've decided just mentioning it in a turkey thread is enough.

I was just about to post this Palin "massacree" clip but decided not to after seeing your post. I've seen enough of that turkey to make me go vegan.
