She may be but the way she has been treated for merely being ‘southern’ is nothing short of chilling. You don’t have to like her to be outraged at what has happened

So Paula Deen gets on TV, she's baffled, she's sobbing, she's wringing her handkechief, she's groveling, abasing herself and bowing to every point on the compass, so sorry, so dreadfully sorry, ---

Of course it's sickening. And it's hard to even explain the level of coordinated, media-generated malice dumped on her like the contents of a Supersize outhouse. The contempt --- not dislike, not disdain, but make-your-skin-crawl contempt that's been flung into this lady's face--- I can only think that she is the perfect combination of everything the elite classes hate: white, Southern, Baptist, Christian, 66 year old good old girl with the wrong accent and the wrong hair, the wrong kind of pink-cheeked blue-lidded beaming grandma face, from the wrong side of the tracks, who had the nerve to be a HUGE commercial success selling the wrong kind of food.

It doesn't matter if she made nice to Dear Leader Barack and his lovely bride Michelle, and Oprah the Mirror of Culture. As far as the wolfpack is concerned, Paula Deen could be Sarah Palin, and Sarah Palin could be Sheriff Jim Clark at the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

Hush puppies and sweet tea. A bit of consolation there.

Paula Deen's Vegetable Hush Puppies

1 egg
1 cup *vegetables*, minced
1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
1/2 cup sharp cheese, shredded
3/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
other herbs and seasonings to taste
Oil for frying

**(The vegetables can be any combination adding up to 1 cup, all minced. Minced onions, zucchini, squash, onions and dried rushed red peppers, diced (drained) tomatoes, garlic, and basil, Italian seasonings, whole corn and hot or sweet peppers, chopped broccoli. Cheese can be any kind, but a sharp one is best; you can also add finely chopped shrimp or ham or crumbled cooked sausage or crumbled crisp bacon..)

Combine all ingredients and stir well. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls into 3” deep hot fat. Fry about 3 minutes (depending on size). They will sink to the bottom at first then pop up, fat and delicious. Get them out when they’re a nice golden color; drain.

Pop in your mouth, dipped in ketchup, horseradish, Ranch dressing, or nothing at all.
