It has always struck me as silly that the POTUS has to pardon a turkey at Thanksgiving. Who starts these customs? I could google it and find out- but I'll let you do the work. The White House must share my feelings, because they are spoofing themselves in You Tube videos. People get their shorts in a knot over presidential behavior and clothing, but they are amused by turkey pardoning. I am amused by this video and the promise of a sequel. Call me shallow. I can deal with that.
Here is video of the actual event. All you ever needed to know about Turkey pardons are folded within. And some lovely thoughts about our abundant blessings as Americans, and our debt to those who serve our nation in the armed forces.
