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:

Orlando Jones would like to make something very clear: he does not want anyone to kill Sarah Palin.

Heck, the actor does not want anyone to kill anyone, for that matter.

Jones got himself in trouble last weekend for Tweeting, in response to the death of Moammar Gadhafi, "if American liberals want respect they better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin (:”

That got the D-lister in trouble with even the most hardcore liberals and led him to write on Facebook last night:

“I pray that no harm comes to Governor Palin. I’m not a political pundit and I certainly don’t believe in murder. I think laughter is great medicine. I’d love to elevate the conversation but no one seems interested in that. So I’ll keep on going for the smiles even when I miss by a mile.”

Not really sure how an unfunny crack about murder is elevating any conversation, but, hey, we're no comedic pundits. It's nice to know for sure that Mr. Jones is anti-homicide.

The death of Moammar Gadhafi set off a string of celebrations throughout Libya, concerns among the international community ... and absurd comments on Twitter.

An instant, harmless classic: “Lunch with Gadhafi, cancelled.” - Steve Martin.

On Saturday, though, actor Orlando Jones went in a different direction:

“Libyan Rebels kill Gaddafi, if American liberals want respect they better stop listening to Aretha & kill Sarah Palin (:” wrote the star ... drawing a harsh rebuke.

  • Sarah Palin Gets Fired Up!

Palin has not responded on Twitter to Jones’ remarks, but supporters have.

An account called Tennessee4Palin (@TN4P) wrote, “Why does @TheOrlandoJones think it’s funny to call for Sarah Palin to be murdered? #palin #liberaltolerance”

Jones' response, “No I don’t. I think it’s funny you are so upset about my inane tweet.”

Another user then tweeted at him, “You are obviously a big fat moron. How about someone talked about killing your mother or sister. Is that Funny-ha, ha?”

Jones' response to that one: “Yay! Name calling. I’m a moron that’s working on the big and fat part. Maybe you could buy me food & complete the trifecta (:”

What do you think? Did Orlando Jones go too far?

He admits he was "inane," yes, but telling people to KILL her? Really? And likening Palin to Gadhafi ... is that any different than Hank Williams' Obama-Hitler comparison?

Tell us what you think by commenting and voting below ...

Whose side are you on?

It was almost a foregone conclusion, but former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has announced, officially, that she will not enter the 2012 presidential race.

Palin's announcement comes one day after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie affirmed his decision not to jump in despite Republican leaders urging him to.

No leaders really wanted Palin to, but she's like a celebrity now, so the media still pays attention to her. Here's what she told supporters in a letter:

S 2 the P

"I believe I can be more effective in a decisive role to help elect other true public servants to office - from the nation's governors to congressional seats and the presidency."

"I will continue driving the discussion for freedom and free markets, including in the race for president where candidates must embrace immediate action toward energy independence through domestic development of conventional energy sources, along with renewables."

"We must reduce tax burdens and onerous regulations that kill American industry, and our candidates must always push to minimize government to strengthen and allow the private sector to create jobs."

"I apologize to those who are disappointed in this decision."

Anyone? Hello?

Sarah Palin says she didn't mean to insult Herm Cain ... Herb Cain ... Herman Cain ... aww shucks, whatever his name is in an interview on Fox News this week.

When she called the presidential candidate "the flavor of the week," Palin was criticized by supporters of the Georgia businessman and Republicans in general.

Well, Palin took the time to clarify that, saying she wasn't suggesting that Cain was about to fade, but merely commenting on her arch-nemesis, the press:

  • Herman Cain Picture
  • Sarah Pic

"What the media tends to do is propel this flavor of the week ... I am not saying that Herman Cain is the flavor of the week. I’m one of his biggest fans and I would never dismiss him or speak negatively about him."

"I’m saying the media always has to gin up some controversy and intrigue so viewers tune in and there’s a lot of competition in the media world in this quasi-reality show it seems that’s being created in the GOP primary."

"It’s just the nature of the beast right now and I think anybody would hard-pressed to argue against what I observed," Palin explained.

That's actually a fair point. But it's still funny because:

  1. Sarah Palin has actually been on a reality show.
  2. She profits from 24/7 media coverage, exploiting it to remain in the spotlight long after she lost any relevance and despite having no plans to run for office.

Levi Johnston is running his mouth again. This time, the occasion is his book tour (yes, we're serious) for Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs.

While there are no bombshells quite up there with a Sarah Palin-Glen Rice tryst, Levi does reveal more than Alaska's most famous family would ever want him to.

Some excerpts from a recent interview he gave about the book:

Levi Johnston Book Cover

On the prospect of a Palin presidency: "'President Palin' is a phrase that scares me. She is apparently only 5 percent behind Obama right now and that's frightening me. I'm figuring I might have to move to Canada if she wins."

On his baby mama's book: "I didn't read Bristol's book (Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far). I heard a lot of things out of it, as far as "I'm a gnat" and how I stole her virginity. Her book is just flat out lying, it's disgusting."

Sarah Palin's husband, Todd, denounced Joe McGinniss' new book about Alaska's most famous family as "disgusting lies, innuendo and smears" in a statement.

The former governor's camp is looking to discredit the biography - a racy, detailed, provocative tell-all, even as Palin gossip goes - which is due out next week.

Todd Palin slammed The Rogue: Searching for the Real Sarah Palin, specifically denying that his business partner Brad Hanson had an affair with his wife.

The part about Glen Rice nailing Sarah Palin, sadly, went unmentioned by Todd.

Todd Palin wrote of McGinniss:

"This is a man who has been relentlessly stalking my family to the point of moving in next door to harass and spy on us to satisfy his creepy obsession with my wife." 

"His book is full of disgusting lies, innuendo and smears. Even The New York Times called this book 'dated, petty,' and that it 'chases caustic, unsubstantiated gossip.'"

Hang on ... the Palins read The New York Times?

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.

Not unlike when she ran for V.P., Sarah Palin finished second this weekend in an Iowa half-marathon. Unlike the '08 election, though, second place is impressive!

Conveniently vague on whether she's running for president, basking in attention without having to do any real campaigning, she was fully committed to this run.

She finished second among women 40-49 with a respectable time of 1:46.10 in the Storm Lake, Iowa, event. That's just over eight minutes a mile for 13 miles!

Palin Runs

Sarah Palin actually did some legwork!

A tweet from Palin mentioned the run: “Thank you, Storm Lake, Iowa. You put on a great event & we loved meeting some great folks in your beautiful town today!”

She did not announce her intention to run prior to the event, though, and competed under her maiden name, Sarah Heath, listing her residence as Des Moines.

As for whether she'll run for the White House: Should she?

Sarah Palin has not said if she will enter the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, but a growing number of GOP insiders feel she will.

Former George W. Bush adviser Karl Rove and tea party organizer Peter Singleton are both among the list of people who think she'll be in, and soon.

Rove said on "Fox News Sunday" that he would bet on it.

Oh, You Betcha

"Well, I'm not much of a gambler but the schedule she's got next week in Iowa looks like that of candidate, not celebrity," Rove told host Bret Baier.

Rove noted the video her PAC released Friday, which reaches out to Iowa voters. That video "strikes me as pre-presidential campaign," Rove said.

Palin is planning to speak at the Tea Party of America's "Restoring America" rally in Iowa September 3, which Singleton says could signal her entry.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
