Sarah Palin pardons a turkey

Something like 2 1/2 million people have watched one YouTube version or another of the latest stupefying Sarah Palin video.

She didn't get elected to a job anywhere near the White House, but she did deliver a presidential-like pardon to one Alaskan turkey for Thanksgiving -- while, behind her, other turkeys were being slaughtered.

Of those 2 million plus, how many were utterly horrified at the gory spectacle? And of the multitudes of horrified, how many will be be chowing down this Thursday on turkey?

Inquiring vegetarians want to know.
