Turkey in Baghdad: The Weekly Standard has a good roundup of various news on President Bush's Thanksgiving visit to Baghdad, including an account of the trip by one of the soldiers who was there.
The magazine also makes mention of last week's "scoop" by the Washington Post that the turkey and fixings that Bush held in that infamous photo wasn't for eating, but was instead dressed up as a centerpiece.
I first saw the Drudge Report on the Post's scoop the day before the article was published, but I wanted to wait until I actually saw the article before I commented.
The judgement: The Post is conflicted. On one hand is the fact that the paper felt that this story was actually newsworthy in the first place. On the other hand, they put the story on A33.
