Democrats Block Presidential Turkey Pardon

In their continuing effort to keep the President from fulfilling his wayward agenda, congressional Democrats have moved to block this year's Presidential Turkey Pardon.

This year's turkeys, May and Flower, will now be subject to extended congressional hearings to determine their suitability for pardon.

"We need to determine the turkeys' stands on the issues," said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "It is necessary to insure these turkeys will not simply be shills for the administration. We need to make sure the turkeys are reflective of the voice of the American people."

Senator Harry Reid agreed. "This is another shameful attempt by the Bush administration to forward their anti-children agenda. Now, he's even taking food out of their mouths."

The hearings are expected to last through January.
