Well, She Could Have Been Shooting Them From A Helicopter ...

If you ask me, this was a subtle (well, not so subtle, really) shot back at all her detractors, the other Republicans who have been dissing her, blowing her off for 2012, saying she's not what the party is about.

If he wasn't dead already, you could have been led to think that this press conference was directed, and shot, by Sam Peckinpah.

Yes, Mommy Moose is in the news again (well, she has never really left it, has she?), doing the lame, traditional "Turkey Pardon" (I wasn't aware Governors did this - I thought that was a Presidential thing - Hint, Hint!) and, then, stepping out to do a little PR.

Not that she offered anything earth-shattering, or profound (we are talking about The Wasilla Whiz Kid here, after all), it is her choice of location that has been buzzing in the headlines.

And, as everyone who has presented this has done, we offer the warning that you may find the scene of a turkey being slaughtered a bit gruesome.

KTUU 2008 Sarah Palin turkey interview

It was said that the photographer alerted the infamous Hockey Mom to the activities going on behind her, and she shrugged it off.

Like I said, perhaps pointing at people like, say, Newt Gingrich, she knew what she was doing, and it was less doing the ceremonial thing, and more that she was delivering a message.

No doubt, Rich Lowery must be playing the above video, over-and-over, breathless and soaked, not once glancing at the carnage going behind his dream girl, with the rainstorm of starbursts cascading over him.

We'll have to wait and see if the Turkey Farm went out and purchased her clothes for the Bloody Pardon Press Conference.

Doesn't a girl gotta look good standing in front of birds being slaughtered?

Ya Betch'ya!

And the Thanksgiving holiday, itself?

A Palinpalooza of potential media coverage!

Stuffing the turkey ... Mashing the potatoes .. Carving the cooked bird ... Serving the homemade pies ...

And, what does everyone do the day after Thanksgiving?

Go Shopping!

Recycle your Thanksgiving toothpicks to use for how often The Wild Wordsmith of Wasilla (as labeled by Dick Cavett) pops up on the tube over this holiday season.

Happy Palin Holidays!
