As we await tomorrow’s feast, conservative pundit Michelle Malkin gives us something to gnaw on, running down the year’s top turkeys:

  • The stimulus: The “Generational Theft Act” isn’t even a turkey, but a “Turbaconducken—the heart attack-inducing dish of roasted chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey, all wrapped in endless slabs of bacon.”

  • President O-bow-ma: As “kowtower-in-chief … the candidate who pledged to restore America’s standing in the world couldn’t figure out how to stay standing in front of world leaders,” she writes, piling on his bows to Saudi King Abdullah and Japan’s emperor. “The Left complained that George W. Bush was too much of a cowboy on the global stage. It’s better than having a waterboy.”
  • Green-jobs czar Van Jones: Fortunately, this “deep-fried turkey” has been run off by the righty media, now breathing a sigh of relief that the “Marxist rabble-rouser from Oakland” is pushing his agenda at some think tank and not the White House.
