There's a new flap involving Sarah Palin: In honor of Thanksgiving, she pardoned one turkey while other birds met their demise right behind her. Now the former VP hopeful's rep is speaking out to ET about the turkey pardon-gone-wrong!
"The [Alaska] governor did not know it was going on behind her," Palin's spokesperson tells ET of the reportedly grisly scene at Triple D Farm & Hatchery outside Wasilla. Cameras captured Palin extending the annual Thanksgiving pardon to one turkey while a farm hand slaughtered the bird's feathered friends in the background.
Palin's spokesperson tells ET the bird butchering wasn't going on when the shot was set up, and a cameraman "ignored" the governor's staff's request to remove the graphic sight once cameras were rolling.
"We're unhappy about it and the station is not happy either," Palin's rep tells ET, adding, "this was an attempt to lighten up and do something non-controversial."

This is total bull shit.
If it bleeds, it leads...
Is there anything that the liberals won’t do to destroy this woman???????
More wacky antics by the Commie fags in the MSM. Those people hate Americans.
Could be worse...Less Nessman from WKRP could of been there.
To the dummies out there, you think turkeys are just born dead?
Funny, even my most moonbat friends think this was a pure Barbra Streisand stunt by the idiot DBM to make Saracuda look bad, and it AIN'T WORKING.
S l o w news day!
No. They are deathly afraid of her. She resonates with people from all walks of life, except liberalism, that is.
What the media do not realize is that they are smearing by association every person who has ever skinned their own dinner, everyone who has hunted, raised kids, and opposed the forces of evil, wherever those may be.
They are messing with the wrong crowd, and it will come back to haunt them. More people are tuning out, turning off the tube and going elsewhere for information.
No they kill them selves and jump on the store shelves. or do they jump on the shelves and them kill them selves. Just how do they get there. I’m headed to triple D tomorrow for my Turkey I hope it’s dead.I would hate to break it to my wife. it wouldn’t be to bad she knows what a Ulu is for.
Still cracks me up to this day.
Oh yeah, and weenielibs suck. I'm gonna eat extra turkey this year just to spite them.
One reporter in the interview asked Palin about “programs that are on the chopping block”. It’s hard to believe that the reporter did not phrase the question that way because of the background.
16 million turkeys committ suicide for the holidays.
I don’t understand what the flap is all about. Doesn’t the media know where and how their turkey dinners get to their tables?
They martyr themselves.
I'm going to get a triple-d smoked Turkey. They don't ship out of Alaska. So you don't get any.
