The War on Bacon

posted at 6:24 pm on October 30, 2012 by Mary Katharine Ham

We’re going a bit late today to give some room to Michael Yon’s great piece on Afghanistan, so enjoy that!

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.

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

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.

Waiting. From the frying pan into the fire?

Lol! Well since I’m in Ga. I can only tell you how my Mom and Sister are doing. They are all fine. They have seen weather like this a time or two before. My Mother says to me. “You can tell because, well, just look at the shape the coast makes. We have a beautiful bay because of one of these. I was younger, but I still remember.” Moms are funny that way.

I support the Bacon Battle.

Nope. Just to fifteen again.

Argh! We went over fifteen!

Bmore. I’m making some lemon chicken tonight, truce?

Fallon on October 30, 2012 at 7:16 PM

Correction, you went over fifteen Fallon. I have been banned from the bacon room. Lol! ; ) I’m not even supposed to be here.

Bmore on October 30, 2012 at 7:19 PM

I sympathize with the SF gal. I’ll be so bummed if Obama wins. Though I won’t want to detail it in an MSM piece. About how I will get falling down drunk if it happens. If Romney wins, I’ll be so happy. I’ll probably get falling down drunk if that happens. There’s not much difference between me and the SF gal. She wears her emotions on her sleeve, while I put mine on the shelf, the better to make good decisions.

I’m in Ohio. How could my mental life NOT be some soap opera in the next week. Angst.

Boy, do I ever feel “sheepish”.

I guess I never heard you discuss your place of residence, so I aasumed it to be in proximity to Baltimore (reference to your blog name).

No worries. Lots of folks think that. Its actually my real nickname. Always wanted to get out from the wrong side of the tracks. Be More. ; )

Not seeing you on QOTD last night helped contribute to that false premise. A lot of places had power outages around Baltimore, last night.

listens2glenn on October 30, 2012 at 8:51 PM

Mary, I’m in NoVa too, and my power only just got turned back on, so you were lucky. Imagine being a dude and having to urinate in the pitch black for 24 hours. What a mess! But we probably shouldn’t go there.

Hi Kelly!

Love you guys!

I couldn’t hear anything with the auto ads running.

Thank you auto ads.
