The War on Bacon

posted at 6:01 pm on October 23, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

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, debate recap, the worst candidate in the country, a butt-shaking tax, and 2012, 2012, 2012!

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.

Why not the live YouTube embed anymore? I’m lazy. Don’t make me click more than once.

My guess: Mitt testified in a custody case on behalf of a fellow Mormon Dad against a former Mormon Mom and she lost her children.

It’s Probate and Family Court where Allred is attempting to get Mitt’s testimony unsealed in a prior court case.

Not seeing much of a scandal there…Highly doubtful anything Romney testified to would be scandalous and if the court agreed it’s not scandalous at all imo.

How old is the case? If the children are still minors I can’t imagine she would succeed in this. But this also looks rather vile as well; which is par for the course where Allred is concerned.

No idea, no names or dates given. Guess we’ll find out tomorrow. Or not, if the Judge kicks her to the curb.

Possibly something to do with his testimony in a polygamy case or something??

Bah!

Where’s the other picture you gals were regularly using on your posts?

The other picture was way better than this one!

Baconistas Unite!!

SparkPlug on October 23, 2012 at 7:49 PM

This is a like a little game of ‘telephone’, but anyway:

Quick update: Reading comments at Ace’s and one of the gang said that they just heard on the Howie Carr show that it might be about the divorce case of one of Mitt’s former partners. No idea how true this is.

Mitsouko on October 23, 2012 at 7:52 PM

Much better pic- the other was kinda fish-eyed….

Kelly and MKH. Hate to say it but have been watching your V-Blog for about a week now, just fond out my sound car wasn’t working. Looking for something else but found this and thought of you two.

Playing with her hair: Fluffing her hair, running her fingers through her hair, and the strongest sign of body language flirting, tossing her hair, are all designed to show you she is available.

Stop this war on bacon posts. They aren’t catching on with the HA crowd and reek of desperation.

Seven Seas on October 23, 2012 at 10:48 PM

I’m sure there’s a point to this, although I don’t yet know what it is. If you two are a couple, get it out there and let’s move forward.

The ‘winky-winky’ stuff is annoying. I do not care if you’re a Lesbian, MCH,and I hope I’m not alone. Let’s just cut to the subject at hand…which is NOT chicks gettin’ it on…DAMMIT!

When the subject IS chicks gettin’ it on, let me know.

Bacon=hot, girl on girl action?

COOL! Now can we move on? If not, is there PPV?
