(Newser) – David Letterman couldn't let news of Sarah Palin's gruesome turkey farm visit fly past him without comment, the Huffington Post notes. Palin pardoned one turkey but was oblivious to others being slaughtered behind her during a TV interview last week. Among Letterman's Top 10 purported excuses for Palin's disregard of the gorefest:

  • I can see Russia but I can't see what's going on 5 feet behind me.
  • Those were al-Qaeda turkeys.
  • Don't blame me, blame Joe the Turkey Slaughterer.
