Sarah Palin’s visit to a turkey farm last year made news when the camera caught a shot of the owner slaughtering a turkey. The NY Times Editorial Board was all over the controversy.

Turns out the farmer in question has had a tough year, for a number of reasons, mostly related to the economy.

But when Andie Coller at Politico covered the farmer’s fate, the focus naturally was on Palin (image right).

Because no Thanksgiving would be complete without a headline and photo suggesting that Palin had caused this poor farmer’s problems, even if the article itself pointed out that the economy — not Palin’s visit — was the cause.

So on this Thanksgiving, Politico readers will get a small side order of Palin Derangement Syndrome with their turkey, no extra charge.
