Obama Gives Shout-Out to Nate Silver at Turkey Pardon: VIDEO


President Obama gave two turkeys a presidential pardon today. Cobbler and Gobbler will head to their future home at George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate. In his remarks, Obama gave a shout-out to NYT number-cruncher Nate Silver:

"For the first time in our history, the winners of the White House turkey pardon were chosen through a highly competitive online vote, and once again, Nate Silver completely nailed it. The guy's amazing. He predicted these guys would win."

  1. What a silly tradition...I have my problems with Obama. Sometimes I believe he is waaay too detached, but I have to admit he does have charm when he wants to. I am so glad that he won reelection. If that lying Mormon had won, I don't know if I could have held it together. Romney's mendacity disgusted me, thank God he and his botoxed wife are never ever going to be residing at 1600 Pennsylvania ave.

  4. Can he extend pardons to humans also? His record on presidential pardons is a far cry from other presidents. People deserve a second chance and members of his own community( far less likely to receive pardons)would welcome his clemency.
