I remember a really embarrassing moment for Sarah when she, as Governor, held a press conference while, unknown to her, a worker was slaughtering turkeys in the background. The media had a field day with that.
She didn't make a mistake, and the activity was not unexpected. But the media was able to maneuver it into an opportunity to make her look bad. Leftwing sabotage by the "unbiased" press.
What Perry did, he did to himself.
For your information Sarah didn’t care and asked what was the big deal about it since that’s what people do to the turkeys....she laughed it off
another great moment in American politics...I have tears running down my face from laughing. Don’t like Perry but he recovered well, :O) and everyone had a great laugh. He seemed human and not a stick in the mud...better smile than Romney...
