Pardoning Turkeys?!

Just a quick thought…. I have been seeing more than a few articles online about turkey pardons, which of course made more headlines than usual when Palin did her interview in front of a man slaughtering turkeys after pardoning one.  So there are lots of articles and photos of presidents pardoning turkeys, and to be honest I can’t help but feel a bit disgusted.  Because the pardoning process is such a joke.  There are so many men and women who desperately need to be pardoned, who are facing unjust criminal sentences, even death row, and to pardon a turkey to me sends a message that the pardoning process truly isn’t taken seriously.  

Just a thought, really.  Maybe instead of pardoning a turkey, the President could get out there are pardon some people whose lives are truly on the line?
