The annual Thanksgivig celebration in the state capitol, this year marked by a stranging of a Thanksgiving turkey by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger with his bare hands, took place this morning, and was greeted by an enthusiastic crowd of almost 7,000 well-wishers and supporters. “We did not have Thanksgiving in my home country,” the Governor said in prepared remarks. “We would all still be at work. I wish you were too, but I can not rescind state holidays without the legislatures support. Oops. I meant to use the other speech. This was supposed to be the one that was discarded.”

Meanwhile, in Texas, Governor-elect Rick Perry marshalled in the holidays with the annual turkey poisoning and electrocution.
