Upholding the presidential Thanksgiving tradition, President Obama has today pardoned Cobbler and Gobbler, two 40-pound turkeys from Virginia.
This year, however, Americans voted on which turkeys would receive the pardon, giving the president the perfect opportunity to crack a joke about Nate Silver, the New York Times polling wizard who accurately predicted the Election Day results.
"Once again, Nate Silver completely nailed it," Obama said. "The guy's amazing. He predicted these guys would win."
