The Toronto Starís Antonia Zerbisias wonít let Turkeygate die:

That picture-perfect platter of turkey-with-all-the-trimmings Bush toted around for the cameras was just a prop, set dressing that was not for G.I. Joe consumption.

"A contractor had roasted and primped the turkey to adorn the buffet line, while the 600 soldiers were served from cafeteria-style steam trays ... , " Mike Allen of The Washington Post reported last week.

That contractor? Kellogg Brown & Root (KBR), a division of ...

Halliburton. Thus proving the insane, turkey-displaying evil of the BusHitler regime! Zerbisias says that her duplicate Rodney Dangerfield head is "spinning from all the spinning". She should be thankful she isnít covering the Democrats.

Bugger Haliburton - Kellog Brown and Root just about says it all and the Sepos don't understand. Let alone the Canadians - don't get me started on their clothing brand - Roots Athletics!

Zerbisas is nearly as up on things as Human Eclipse Michael Moore- I just recieved a newsletter (written in lard, I believe) with laugh-riot Mikey being huffy about a plastic turkey.
Talk about finger on the pulse- in Tubby's case, an hourly necessity to make sure his ticker hasn't finally succumbed to the pure cholesterol oozing through his arteries.

Is there a world-wide shortage of lithium?

The turkey was Hillary, as Wes Pruden pointed out. Not a GI would touch it or eye it steadily, & it decayed by its own nature. The remnants were displayed on three US TV networks on a snowbound Sunday morning. Then Gore lobbed them toward the batter Dean, who swatted them out of sight.

I dunno what she's getting all excited about. Her Crown Prince has his own turkey issues.
