Good eating, Mr President

It’s that time of year again…

…the official pre-Thanksgiving presidential Turkey pardon.  A bird named Courage is headed not for the dinner table but for  retirement in California after the President saved it from a death sentence.

“There are certain days that remind me why I ran for this office,” Obama said.  Was this one of them?

He joins a long line of benevolent presidential bird savers.  See how the tradition has gone. . .

from life. . .

to art. . .

to somewhere in-between!
