It’s been said that all of Obama’s promises have an expiration date. (The promises he hasn’t broken already by the time he makes them, that is.) So if Obama promises to let you live, you’ll live. Maybe a year, maybe less.
Peace, one of two turkeys pardoned by President Obama last year, was euthanized Monday, according to an official who insisted the timing of the death – days before the Thanksgiving holiday – was not suspicious.
Rebecca Aloisi, vice president for marketing at the Mount Vernon Estate, confirmed that Peace had died after a weekend “illness.” But Aloise knew neither the nature of the illness, the manner of death, nor what had been done with the remains of the large, edible bird.
I appreciate where you’re going with this,” Aloisi told CNN. “But I assure you that these birds are extremely well cared for.” The decision to euthanize the bird was made by a veterinarian in consultation with Mount Vernon’s livestock department, she said.
Well, you can’t say they didn’t give Peace a chance.
By the way, Obama had an inspiring Thanksgiving message: Shut up, you.
P.S. Oh, and if you thought he was going to take a day off from being a jerk, think again: Obama pardons turkeys and takes a parting shot at Romney. It’s going to take Barry a while to forgive the guy for daring to run against him.
