Most plastic turkey conspiracists only mention the Great Magical Holy Bird of Bush’s Perpetual Idiocy once, lest repeated mentions tempt opportunistic relatives to have them committed. Even Mark Lawson, inventor of the legend, later revised the turkey down from “plastic” to mere “fake” (still wrong, but allowing at least a little wiggle-room). No such wimpishness from Mike Whitney; he decided the turkey was plastic back in April, and, by gum, ain’t no dang fancy-pants notions of “reality” gonna change his mind:
Rove’s job is to ensure that Bush looks presidential whether waltzing with a plastic turkey in Baghdad or gadding about in a Navy flight-jacket surrounded by Marines.
