The War on Bacon

posted at 6:01 pm on September 28, 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, the Wisconsin Supreme Court declines to hear about photo ID prior to the election, Caleb Bonham gets preemptively shut down at a Sherrod Brown event in Ohio this morning, and gamification – yes, that’s a real word – has entered the political arena.

LG CHEM an electric car battery maker conducting rolling furloughs since April due to lack of demand for electric cars.

The same plant that President Obama in 2010 flew down to the ground breaking ceremony, and awarded the company with $151 million of taxpayer money.

Clear the set! Someone — get this cat out of here.

All right people — live television is hard, but that’s why we make the big bucks. Someone powder Mary Katharine’s nose — I can see the lights from here.

Wake up dancer #3! No wonder she can’t kick anymore — she’s out all night partying.

DOES EVERYONE HAVE THE NEW PAGES?
