I think the red-state blue-state view of the country is overly simplistic, but nonetheless this map from the Daily Kos is amusing.
And this had me laughing out loud:
WASHINGTON… The National Turkey, pardoned by President Bush in the traditional White House pre-Thanksgiving ceremony, will be held captive at the US military installation in Guantanamo. The turkey, said to weigh in the teens of pounds, will be interned at the request of Vice President Dick Cheney, who is concerned that it may have been raised on a farm in Prague.
A source close to the Vice President, speaking on condition of sycophantic proximity to power which journalists mistake for actual reporting, stated â€œitâ€™s been pretty well verifiedâ€ the turkey may have had access to various biological and chemical substances, including what has been termed by a Pentagon informant as â€œa potential basting agentâ€.
