BuzzFeed says that President Obama got a little frisky when he pardoned the turkeys today:

They say that life is all about second chances and this November I can't agree more," Obama said.

"So in the spirit of the season I have one more gift to give," Obama joked in apparent reference to Mitt Romney's claim after the election that Obama won by giving "gifts" to minority groups, Obama said he was going to pardon the National Thanksgiving Turkey, named Cobbler, and his stand-in, Gobbler.

President Obama also made a Nate Silver joke. Turns out, the teabaggers were right: He doesn't treat the solemn duties of his office with the appropriate sense of dignity and importance. And now he's gone and bought the turkey vote, too.
