The War on Bacon

posted at 6:01 pm on October 11, 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.

Mary Katharine Ham of HotAir.com and Kelly Maher of RevealingPolitics.com discuss politics, culture, and all kinds of other randomness. A good happy hour timed show, please join us live every day at 6:15 EST.

You can download the audio for the show, here, or sign up for the RSS feed! Or, find us on iTunes!

If you want to survive the war on bacon, you have to become the war on bacon!

All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my bacon.

War on bacon, no cab no raw.

Rats, it almost works as a palindrome.

Oh, Jerry, don’t let’s ask for the moon. We have the bacon.

BACONISTAS, I think, is better for its guerrilla war ‘flavor’.

Its yours for free. No royalty or anything like that.

Just say you got it from Sparky.

That is perfect. Never thought of that one.

Hey, is Kelly with anyone?

Also, this automatic refresh always effs up their videos. I only ever get two thirds through.
