Keep it classy, McMurphy.

And you wonder why women don't flock to the GOP.

Any competent politician, or one that actually listened to their staff, would have known better. All she had to do was take a few steps to one side or another and this wouldn't even be a discussion now.

In closing, 'as God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!'

Sorry, I have never seen the actual video. I just assumed it was yet another "she kills poor little animals" poster. Thank you for the info.

If Palin were a democrat it would be the right attacking her stupidity and the left pretending she wasn't that bad. Perfect example. Sheila Jackson Lee. The left either ignores her stupid remarks and flubs or they simply try to push it as she was taken out of context.

Absolutely. Shelia Jackson Lee is an embarrassment and yet never a peep from the left.

It's hard to find a copy of the video that isn't surrounded by someone making jokes about it...but this is the best I could do.

It's a classic -- Sarah Palin Interview While Turkey Slaughtered | Video | Break.com

And then there's this, which I quoted from but not everyone (obviously) remembers, maybe because I'm old. Set-up: A radio station decides to give away free turkeys by tossing them from a helicopter.

Turkeys can fly....I see it everyday.

Just not to far.

My husband's claim local hunting fame is shooting one in mid-air with a bow and arrow.

Watch the video. They're talking about farmed turkeys, not wild ones.

You know...this is why people say the Right has no sense of humor...

I had forgotten all about the WKRP show. I remember watching that! It was hysterical. And the Palin clip, ugh! Whoever advised her to do that was not too bright. Thank you for the laughs!! Btw, you are not old...and neither am I.
