That's Liberty there on the table, the turkey the president pardoned this morning along with its understudy, Peace. "Some of you may know that recently I have been taking a series of executive actions that don't require congressional approval," Obama joked at the traditional pre-Thanksgiving pardon. Sasha's thought bubble: Daaaad.
