White House release [parody of a Richard Nixon speech transcript]

n.p. n.pub. [197-]. Single 8.5x11 inch sheet, printed one side, very good.

An address by Richard Nixon to a turkey, explaining why it is necessary for it to sacrifice its life on Thanksgiving, though promising a gradual withdrawal of turkey from the plate at some future date; offered as an obvious metaphor for American men dying in Vietnam. He concludes by telling the turkey that "I realize that as you follow your misguided, demented line of thinking you may feel some bitterness toward me. I accept this. I think in all fairness, however, you will have to admit what a nice guy I am. After all, I didn't even have to talk to you at all."
