That's one decadent Easter Bunny

Consorting with a pardoned turkey who has lost all sense of right and wrong in this week's New Yorker. Cartonist Carolita Johnson provides some of the backstory at her blog Newyorkette, along with this postscript:
PS - for my non-american readers who may not be aware of the custom, the tradition is that just before Thanksgiving, the President of the United States (the Leader of the Free World, as they say), pardons a turkey. That is, this pardoned turkey will be spared from becoming someone’s dinner, and basically “retire” from the food chain.) Other pardoned turkeys include President Nixon.
Anyone know if Scooter Libby will be considered for a Thanksgiving turkey pardon this year?
