Fowl Ball: The Palin Turkey-Farm-Interview Outtakes

What you didn't see on YouTube.

Someday, we may all tire of Sarah Palin, but we're nowhere near that point yet. Last Wednesday, the Alaska governor visited a turkey farm in Wasilla to grant a pre-Thanksgiving pardon to one lucky Tom. She was borrowing a White House tradition that's the equivalent of a political layup. But she managed to blow the shot.  

After issuing the reprieve, Palin took questions while standing in front of a farm worker who was preparing other turkeys for slaughter. You have to see the interview to believe it, and thanks to YouTube, you can.

Only here, though, can you see the outtakesSlate V has uncovered.
