    What do you all think of this?

    *Video* Obama absolves Thanksgiving turkey with the Sign of the Cross

    While pardoning the Thanksgiving turkey today, President Obama absolved it with what he called a "special dispensation," making the Sign of the Cross over the gobbling turkey.

    It appears that Obama made a left handed, backward sign of the cross.

    It certainly appears unusual, as President Bush only laid hands on the bird in 2008.

    Seriously, could we have a dumber President? All those years sitting in Reverend Wright's pews and he couldn't even learn how to do the sign of the cross.

    I'm not an expert on this and I wondered what it was that he was actually doing.

    I doubt Muslims make the sign of the cross, even incorrectly, so yes, I was joking that that's how Muslims do it.

    He didn't do any sign of the cross in 2009:

    Well, when you're going to besmirch the Catholic Church, why not go all the way. Seriously, he probably thought he was funny acting like the Pope but he looks like a smacked ass.
