The War on Bacon

Welcome! Let us explain.
Kelly Maher of Revealing Politics and I are doing a little talk show for 30-45 minutes, here, at 6:15 p.m. every day. We named it The War on Bacon. We figure, since the government is after trans fats, big sodas, salt, and most other sinfully delicious things, it won’t be long before they zero in on our favorite— bacon. So, as fans of pork products— how could I not be?— we are here to fight for it, in the most crucial fight of our time— The War on Bacon. Join the ranks of the Baconators and fight with us!
We talk a lot of politics, a bit of culture, a splash of sports, and in the end, strive to be a show Ron Swanson would want to watch.
Today, Kelly’s on the ground in Wisconsin, where Packers fans are coping with the aftermath of a TD call so bad, no amount of cheese melted over it could make it tolerable.
We’ll chat with Wisconsin talk radio host Charlie Sykes, author of the book “A Nation of Moochers,” as we try to get to the bottom of this formulation. Who’s is mooch? Are you a mooch? Is the mooching coming from inside the house???
Also, Elizabeth Warren may be as fake a lawyer as she is an Indian. And, oh yes, we’re back on the Native American thing because she’s got a new ad out on the subject!
President Obama wants us and the UN to know “the future cannot belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” We’ll talk about the whole speech.
And, HOLY MESS, we may be running out of bacon. What did we tell y’all? That’s why you have to join us every day, so we figure out how to save the bacon.

We’ll be here with an embedded video and chat at 6:15 p.m.!
