A few food-related tasty items on Thanksgiving Day,
Obama thought pardoning a turkey prevented a shellacking. While he claims he doesn’t think about Sarah Palin, whose daughter Bristol took third place in the final, he mentioned Dancing With The Stars,

He discussed the process for selecting the turkeys earning a presidential pardon, which involves contestants “strutting their stuff” before judges as music plays.

“It’s kind of like a turkey version of ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ except the stakes for the contestants was much higher,” said the president.”Only one pair would survive and win the big prize: life.”

Speaking of Palin, she killed a fish before she ate it. Jazz has more on that, so I’ll just say that I prefer my fish dead even if it’s sushi.

Elsewhere, Taranto’s writing about the Donkey Turkeys who believe that the Congressional shellacking was due to your stupidity and to Obama being too far to the right. I beg your pardon?

Back at the White House, Michelle Obama OKs Americans to Eat Pie on Thanksgiving. I’m sure we all were holding out until we got the First Lady’s OK, since we’re not smart enough to decide on our own.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!
