Quote of the day...
Written by Robert Niles
"There are certain days that remind me of why I ran for this office. And there are moments like this, when I pardon a turkey and send it to Disneyland." - President Barack ObamaTweet
"Thanks to interventions of Malia and Sasha, because I was planning to eat this sucker, [this turkey] will also be spared this terrible, and delicious, fate," the President said.
You can see "Courage," the pardoned Thanksgiving turkey, at Disneyland Park tomorrow, when it serves as Grand Marshal of the park's afternoon parade. After that, Courage and its alternate, Carolina, will move to Big Thunder Ranch.
