President Barack Obama pardoned a turkey named Liberty at the White House today. But, as you know, most birds are not so lucky, even when politicians are nearby.

Just a few years back, in fact, one committed a major party fowl.

In this classic video from Thanksgiving 2008, then-Governor Pain pardoned a turkey and gave an interview with a local news station ... during which things went awry.

Watch what happens in the background in the clip below:

A new tell-all book about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin claims she had a one-night stand with former NBA star Glen Rice way back in 1987.

Is that true? Does it matter? The answer to both is highly debatable. Is this the greatest rumor of all time? To that, we might have to answer yes.

At the time, she was single and working at a TV station as a sports reporter; Rice was a college basketball star visiting Alaska for a tournament.

Sarah Palin and Glen Rice

Glen Rice scored 18,336 career points and won a title with the '00 Lakers. If he scored with Sarah Palin, he wins the title of Most Randomly Hysterical One-Night Stand.

Factual or not, Palin's alleged romantic encounter with Rice - some three years younger and then a junior in college - is causing serious, hilarious buzz.

Neither could not be reached for comment about the sexy fling, although Rice is said to have confirmed it to author Joe McGinniss. So ... yeah.

The hookup is said to have occurred after the '87 Great Alaska Shootout.

Glen was playing for the University of Michigan then. Palin apparently covered the event, only to be covered by Rice's naked body shortly thereafter.

Sarah Palin has given us so many memorable moments over the years.

Undeniably, her every move is scrutinized and picked apart like no other politician in history. But just as undeniably, she brings these things upon herself.

With Alaska releasing thousands of emails from Sarah Palin's brief stint as governor, we can only imagine what revelations lie in store in those reams of paper, and where they will rank on the list of Sarah Palin's greatest hits.

Sarah Palin uses crib notes on her hand in February 2010.

From her 2008 campaign interview with Katie Couric to her pardoning a turkey, then preening for the cameras as others are slaughtered in the background, you just never know what you're going to get with Palin.

Recently, her rendition of Paul Revere's ride added another historic chapter to her resume. An inaccurate one, it turned out, but we laughed a lot.

What was your favorite moment since she burst on the scene? Take a look back at some epic Sarah Palin videos from the last three years and decide:

You gotta hand it to Tina Fey. Her impression of former politician and current celebrity Sarah Palin is so good, Fox News can't even tell them apart.

Reporting on Palin's heavily hyped One Nation bus tour, the channel actually used a photo of the 30 Rock star impersonating her in a faux debate.

Maybe they just prefer to look at Tina? Doubtful. Way to go, guys. As if this weren't absurd enough, Palin herself is a contributor to the network!

We haven't seen a move this boneheaded on camera since somebody claimed Paul Revere warned the British instead of the colonists ...

If you thought Levi Johnston's run for mayor would be the funniest story regarding Alaska politics all day on THG, we wouldn't blame you. But think again!

A woman from Homer, Alaska recently made a 30-foot sign to welcome her state's former chief executive, Sarah Palin, to her hometown. Its simple message: 

WORST GOVERNOR EVER.

Why Sarah didn't just ignore this, we have no idea. But she decided to confront the woman, who accused the ex-governor of being a money-hungry sellout.

"You swore on your precious Bible that you would uphold the interests of this state," she said. "Then, when cash was waved in front of your face, you quit."

Yup, pretty much.

Either baffled and serious or sarcastic and bitter (it's hard to tell), Palin responded: "Oh, you wanted me to be your governor! I'm honored. Thank you."

After the woman rips her for choosing celebrity status over her job, Sarah says to daughter Bristol Palin, "I'm honored that she thinks I'm a celebrity!"

Fist-pumpin' and runnin' in place, Sarah claims she's working to "elect candidates who understand the constitution, to protect our military interests so that we can keep on fightin' for the constitution, those protections, those freedoms."

That and getting rich, of course. Amazingly, Palin posted this on Facebook and lambasted the LSM (lame-stream media) for reporting the encounter.

"They claim I - wait for it - 'appear to roll my eyes' when the lady tells me that she's a teacher," she writes. "Maybe that's why Botox is all the rage - if you can't move your eyebrows, your 'eye rolling' can't be misinterpreted."

Couldn't have said it better ourselves.

Do you like Sarah Palin?
