CNN reports that in a Rose Garden ceremony today, President Bush pardoned two turkeys named “May” and “Scooter Libby” — uh, I mean, “May” and “Flower.”

Betcha the turkey has a job-approval rating higher than 33 percent. Moments like this make you wonder… will some future president hold a Rose Garden ceremony someday to pardon this president?
