Quote of the Day

President Obama and Abe, the turkey he pardoned today as part of a US Thanksgiving tradition.

"As you may have heard, for months there has been a fierce competition between a bunch of turkeys trying to win their way into the White House."—President Obama, opening his turkey pardoning ceremony with the perfect wordplay to reference the Thanksgiving pardon contest and the Republican presidential contest.

You can watch the whole ceremony here, and I highly recommend it, because Sasha and Malia humoring Dad while he pardons a turkey is probably the greatest thing you'll see all day.
