Well, I think so.
Palin did an interview after pardoning a thanksgiving turkey. She did so with the other turkeys being killed in the background. The interview was unremarkable, and you see very little of the turkey as it’s put in some sort of chute to assist the killing process.
Yet somehow this is supposed to be “offensive”.
But reading through the comments in youtube is offensive – one person has posted exactly the same c-word obscenity 3 times. Some slightly more sane (but still pretty crazy) ones here.

This was one of the most bizarre, cringe-worthy things I’ve ever seen.
I couldn’t stop laughing, but at the same time I wanted to barf.

Zooey, that was my reaction precisely.
I was shaking my head the entire time I watched it.

Well, she can kiss national politics goodbye.
What a clueless person.
This comment on youtube however is worth reading.
Yep. This is where turkeys come from. Alaskans are people of the land, not Saab-driving yuppies. Folks who come from the country know that this is how you get a turkey to the table – by killing it in the most efficient way possible. The Saab-driving yuppies who think blood is “icky” and “embarrassing” and are laughing nervously because the precious coccoon that separates them from their meat will still be snarfing up their turkey and gravy this Thanksgiving.
Liberals – kind, loving people in touch with reality.
