Lame duck pardons turkey

By John Breneman

President Bush today pardoned a turkey that had been indicted by a federal grand jury for leaking a highly classified U.S. government cranberry sauce recipe.

The president then thanked the feisty, feathered beast for its service to the country and awarded it the Congressional Medal of Freedom. The bird, identified only as "Tom Doe," was also pardoned for attempting to sexually assault the president during the photo-op.

Democrats reflexively gathered outside the White House to protest the pardon, the war, White House malfeasance and Bush's smirking face. One man waved a banner calling the president "soft on turkeyism."

President Bush is reportedly holed up at his ranch/bunker in Crawford, Texas, where he is said to be excited about an opportunity to "clear some brush."
