Happy Thanksgiving!

He was going to pardon the National Thanksgiving Turkey anyway, but President Bush figured he really owed the bird this time. His dog had just scared the stuffing out of it.

Mr. Bush spared the turkey during a Rose Garden ceremony on Wednesday.

"I am granting a full presidential pardon so they can live out their lives as safe as can be," the president declared.

By virtue of a vote on the White House Web site, the turkeys were named "Flyer" and "Fryer," reports CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller.

Fryer was Flyer's understudy and nowhere to be seen during the ceremony.

Thanks to all those who are away from their family serving this wonderful country. The free world owes you thanks on this thanksgiving. We couldn't live our lives here at home without you. God Bless America and Our Troops! Thanks be to God.

The Anchoress has a picture of President Bush's famous visit to the troops a few thanksgivings ago here.
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 107:1
