MSNBC'S DAVID SHUSTER TAKES THE POINT ON "TURKEYGATE"

They just can't help themselves.

Shuster (who urges that young viewers be shielded from the interview) also seems appalled that Palin had “no worries” over being filmed at the tragic turkey massacre site. Even worse – bloodlusting bird-hater Palin admits she’ll actually cook a turkey for Thanksgiving. Among MSNBC’s captions:

• TURKEYS DIE AS GOVERNOR PALIN TAKES QUESTIONS FROM MEDIA
• GOV. SARAH KEEPS TALKING WHILE TURKEYS GET SLAUGHTERED BEHIND HER
• GOV. PALIN APPARENTLY OBLIVIOUS TO TURKEY CARNAGE OVER HER SHOULDER

What did they expect her to do? Intervene?

UPDATE. Shuster claims his network has “sanitised” the video, removing the “goriest parts”. Here’s uncensored vision. Take a look. Where are the gory parts? Can’t MSNBC nancies even cope with bloodless background vision of a farm animal being offed? Just as well Palin never turned up on Iron Chef: “A lot of resistance being put up by that one!” Note that tiny Japanese actress Naomi Hosokawa is not nearly so squeamish as Shuster.

UPDATE II. NBC finds the video – shot by an NBC affiliate – “too grisly for some”. Meaning MSNBC pantyboys.

Classical Values decides Candyassism has gone mainstream. Plus a new scandal they're sure to pick up on!

Remember, this is the same media who admits that Obama may have gotten some overly positive coverage, but only because he's new.

The concept of "taboo" is an ancient one. Note that while urban liberals mock the various religious taboos about sex and nudity, they're creating their own post-modern Leviticus concerning the taboo of seeing dirty filthy farmwork.

A taboo doesn't mean something is forbidden, necessarily. It just means there are a lot of rules about it. Apparently the new liberal Leviticus states that turkeys may be slaughtered by the hundreds of thousands as long as no one of any importance (i.e., anyone but the farmers involved) is around to witness it.

Actually... All that taboo stuff is pure bullshit. They're only doing this because it's Palin. If it were Obama, Biden, or any other Democrat, they'd be celebrating how comfortable he was to be on a farm. If they mentioned it at all, which they wouldn't.

Horror Movie: David Shuster called the following SNL sketch "the most terrifying film in history."
