Video: The War on Bacon

posted at 6:01 pm on September 14, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

Hey, everyone. We’re going to start the broadcast at 6:15 p.m. today, so we can give people a little more lead time to join us live, as some have asked. We had a glitch yesterday with recording the program, so it only aired live. We’ll fix that today, so you can tune in live or later or both!

On the docket today: How big is Jennifer Granholm’s hair on “The Dating Game?”
How hard is it to navigate the red tape of the federal government? We’ll hear from a Colorado small businessman.
How safe is free speech when the White House is pressuring YouTube?
And, do we throw like girls?

All these questions answered. Check it:

This is why we have to vote for Romney.

Now I ask you, in what kind of anti-Axe world would a guy get an EXPLICIT shout out buy an awesome commentator, a one-in-a-lifetime event, only to have THAT DAY be the day he couldn’t get a copy to show to his peeps, thus increasing his street cred by, roughly, one BILLION times? :)

O c’mon. C’mon.

I was going to play it at Christmas, for goodness sake.

I bought a DVD player.

*sigh*

I probably had it coming or something.

*still get to carry it as a quiet cool thing. Quiet cool things are nice, cause they make you deep.

*plus, God saw.

O, sorry:

Bishop

Axe on September 14, 2012 at 6:08 PM

Not fond of the new show name. Really don’t think it will last.

If “AllahPundit” had his druthers, do you think he’d still use that name?

Paul-Cincy on September 14, 2012 at 6:08 PM

“Bishop” unrelated to “God” — I think.

That was two separate things.

Axe on September 14, 2012 at 6:10 PM

A man with a problem with bacon. This is exactly what we’re fighting against!

Mary Katharine Ham on September 14, 2012 at 6:13 PM

I like the name, I hope the discussion gets a little more serious than it has been, though.

RDH on September 14, 2012 at 6:13 PM

HEY! This is because of the Lamp deal, isn’t it!

lol

I see how it is.

No one say anything about MK’s Frankenlamps.

Haven’t been able to watch yet. Is this a replacement for network news? What’s the point anyway?* I think a better front page graphic would be nice. Kinda like the Obamateurism pic. My 2 cents.

*For the record: no I don’t have a problem with bacon. Unless eating it in moderation and only eating stuff from the organic store is a problem. Don’t hate on me either for my moment of transparency! /preventively takes cover

There is nothing in the world, nothing, that can’t be improved with the liberal application of bacon.

What about “Bacon Bombs” for the Middle East?

Just a thought….

There was this time when a group of friends and myself went to find this dead body by a river, and we ended up facing down some bullies using a gun, and outrunning a train across a rail bridge.

We’re working on incorporating that into the Google Hangout, which I think we can do. We just wanted to get some of the bugs out before we added any moving parts. Thanks for watching!

This is free association, I admit, but what is it with all the flippin’ bacon everywhere these days? EVERY chicken sandwich at Quizno’s has bacon in it somewhere. Wendy’s has the baconator now. KFC is covering everything with bacon. They’re even putting bacon in desserts, on sundaes and on cupcakes around here (shudder).

I don’t happen to like bacon. . . way too salty for my tastes. If other people like it, fine, but why is it turning up on everything these days, from salads to burgers to sandwiches to desserts? Why have non-bacon options dwindled to nearly zero? Was there some kind of pig invasion I hadn’t heard about?

When I was little I think the only places I encountered bacon were at my grandparents’ breakfast table and on the occasional BLT. Not saying we should go back to that scarcity but sheesh. . .

Chuckles3 on September 14, 2012 at 7:38 PM

Loving this show each more every day, keep it up, ladies. As to throwing like a girl, I have this to share. If you’re a girl or a boy and your dad or brother or coach doesn’t teach you to throw a baseball properly, you will throw like a girl, the normal default for either gender, like Obama in Mom Jeans, as it were.

I have only boys and trained them from probably 4 years old how to throw, and they both turned out to be excellent ball players and pitchers. A friend of mine had a boy and a girl, but also trained both how to throw at an early age, and the girl ended up as one of the best pitchers in our little league, really frosting the young boys who she could smoke at the plate. They hated facing her on the plate, but as she and they got older, and she became beautiful like her mom, all of a sudden she had a whole lot of guys “asking her for tips.”

Then again, in the bigger picture, I think it’s better for us guys to be pitchers and, ahem, for you gals to be catchers. ;-)

Chuckles3 on September 14, 2012 at 7:38 PM

I’ve thought about this (really — I’m super dull). I think people get bored with food or something. I’ve never done this; it seems odd, like getting bored with physical intimacy (which also, apparently, happens). Some things should just stay interesting.

Substitute “wraps” for bacon, and I’ve expressed the same idea you did.
Also, there’s some rebellion in it.

He just fails to appreciate the medical miracle that is bacon; sure it mucks up heart valves – but when the docs go in to fix things what do they put in as a replacement? A bacon valve, of course. Bacon – is there anything it can’t do?

I thought the struggle was for all cured meats? I may need to rethinks my support due to the apparent rejection of ‘inclusiveness’…what are you, NeoCons?

A fine example of how certain posts bore me.
Oh, was that satire, by any chance?
If yes, good on you.

Serious comment (well, it does require that preface):

Can’t HA have a single page with a link to every installment of WoB?

No, Really!

I hate having to scroll through the AP, Jazz, and Ed posts (usually the same content is on Twitchy / Townhall, ya know).

I want to be able to go directly to the ‘prime cuts’.

Sure, I know there’s got to be many others that feel the same. After Obama ignores the economy, the MSM continues the squirrel hunt for Mitt’s tax returns, and the celebs crow that they don’t pay enough taxes (and, don’t get me started about the g-d damned polls every fifteen freaking minutes); there is nothing more palate cleansing than these two!
