Still Stuck on Palin

November 24, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Perhaps I should explain my last post. It was prompted by Palin’s latest lie, as described in a post two days ago at the indispensable blog Mudflats.

You may have seen the video of Palin’s interview at the Triple D Farm & Hatchery outside Wasilla as she performed the annual Thanksgiving pardon of a turkey. In the background, as she talked, the unfortunate unpardonees were being slaughtered. She clearly says in the video “No worries” when the scene behind her is pointed out. Yet, Entertainment Tonight reports as follows:

“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.

Mudflats comments: “Palin or her staff could have stopped the interview at any time if this had been the case. Considering there were many people there who saw and heard exactly what happened during this interview, and that I know one of them personally, we can feel confident in saying this desperate attempt on Entertainment Tonight to rescue Palin’s image from the turkey pile sounds like exactly what it is – a big fat lie.”

No worries.
