Obama Pardons Courage

By Marcus Gilmer in Miscellaneous on Nov 25, 2009 9:40PM

This afternoon, President Obama took part in the annual pardoning of the White House turkey, bringing along daughters Sasha and Malia as he pardoned Courage the Turkey. Obama said, "Thanks to the intervention of Malia and Sasha, because I was planning to eat this sucker, Courage will also be spared this terrible and delicious fate." The lucky turkey will spend his life at Disneyland. No word from Obama elaborating his fears of a potential hostile robot takeover.
