BOSTON (CBS) – In an election year, it’s hard to pick just a few top political turkeys.

Listen to Jon’s commentary:

This year politicians from both sides of the aisle provided us with a variety of choices for a thanksgiving feast.

What would Thanksgiving be without Donald Trump? If he thought he was doing Mitt Romney any favors, he was mistaken.

And then there was Trump’s counterpart on the Democratic side, Gloria Allred and her 11th hour attempt to smear Romney. That came up empty, too.

Romney’s “Project Orca” was another political flop. The high-tech voter tracking program crashed and burned on election night, crippling the final push for votes.

Uproar by some, including Boston Mayor Tom Menino, over the Chick-Fil-A CEO’s stance on gay-marriage backfired when the public rallied behind the chain.

What will happen in 2013?

Who knows, we still need to digest the turkey we have this year.

You can listen to Keller At Large on WBZ News Radio every weekday at 7:55 a.m. and 12:25 p.m. You can also watch Jon on WBZ-TV News.
