Has Sarah Palin ruined your Thanksgiving dinner?

As a vegetarian who is trying to become at least a partial meat eater, taking bites of chicken every once in a while, I was completely grossed out watching the Palin interview where turkeys are being slaughtered in the background. (You've probably seen it by now, but I'm attaching it just in case.)

I would prefer to not think about what goes in to making my family's dinner. Especially since I used to be a big animal-rights person and have seen lots of horrific images of the cruelty involved in getting our food and in testing our cosmetics. Seeing those poor turkeys struggle while gawd-knows-what-but-obviously-something-painful is happening was too much.

Darn it, Sarah Palin, can't you let me live in my happy little fantasy world?
