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.
We wish we could be live today, but alas . . . we can’t today. Bacon on Baconaters!
On today’s War on Bacon, Mary Katharine and Kelly delve into the explosive and controversial practice of using Pinterest to do your hair.
Also on the plate, we’ll address reports that the DOJ is suing Gallup over unfavorable numbers. Our internal polling shows this is a bad move by the Administration. BREAKING: War on Bacon being sued by the DOJ.
By the way, if you haven’t heard about Obama’s Romnesia joke, we will have the unfortunate duty of informing you as to its stark lack of hilarity. Seriously. As bad jokes go this might be considered an October surprise for team Obama. The only bright spot being the triple irony of the #Obamnesia hashtag.
