Turkeys have played a propaganda role throughout the glorious Bush years.
Who of us could forget the time when Commander Guy flew unannounced to Iraq for a photo-op as he served plastic turkey to U.S. troops?
Or the year that the turkey about to be pardoned went searching for Osama bin Laden in The Decider’s super secret location? I’m guessing that bird didn’t survive long in its enhanced captivity.
Now with Thanksgiving a week away, it is time again for the White House turkey to hand out the annual pardons… er, something like that.
And just like the past seven years, the White House is asking people to vote for which two turkeys will be pardoned. The choices for this year’s pair of turkeys all have pretty boring names:
- Popcorn & Cranberry
- Yam & Jam
- Dawn & Early Light
- Roost & Run
- Pumpkin & Pecan
- Apple & Cider
We can do better than that!
What would be some better names for the two turkeys to be pardoned by George W. Bush this Thanksgiving?
