The War on Bacon

posted at 6:01 pm on September 25, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

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.

You can download the audio for the show, here, or sign up for the RSS feed!

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

Not even chili could help.

Is everyone on this site unaware that Mitt Romney gave a great, indeed inspiring, speech this morning? We are lucky to have him as our nominee. How about singing his praises for a change?

This is a bad main picture to use. These women look scary.

I can honestly say i have never watched the “war on bacon” nor plan too.

I’m an anti-spam meat soldier in the war on bacon.

I agree.

Mary Katharine Ham, you guys could have seen fit to write at least SOMETHING about this appearance.

MK — Kelly needs a HA Nick & Password.

You know?

Just sayin’.

Why does Mary Katharine Ham write so few blog posts on this site? It’s not like there is a lack of material to write about (e.g., see here: Romney gives fantastic and inspiring speech at Clinton Global Initiative)

I had high hopes when it was announced that MKH would be joining HotAir.

It seems like Erika Johnsen (who has been an outstanding and, in IMO, not properly acknowledged addition to this site) does the heavy lifting.

I would love to see more news coverage and analysis on here, and less self-promotion.

It’s already started: the conspiracy is underway, and England is leading it. http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2012/09/25/industry-group-bacon-pork-shortage-unavoidable/?test=latestnews says that Bacon is going to be limited in the near future, obviously leading to the inevitable rationing.

Pastafarianism is looking up. And we Pastafarians (and I am a non-practicing minister of same) are looking forward to a waiver as pasta carbonara is part of our religious right.
