You've got to wonder if this is what we want our tax dollars going to? Anyway, the White House put out a spoof yesterday morning of the traditional presidential pardon of a turkey for Thanksgiving. The video follows a path through the White House, right into the Oval Office.
Today the president did the real thing, pardoning a bird named Courage. The pardon was available for live streaming at whitehouse.gov.
