The Food Network in 2008 is a downright mean network.

My wife likes watching Dean. I have trouble watching her. Now when I tell my wife about this, I doubt she’ll be on our TV again...

Does anyone believe that Michelle, born and raised in Chicago, first cooked Barack Gumbo. Do people from Chicago even know what Gumbo is? Smells like pandering to the Southern audience.

Anyone who cooks like Paula Dean is asking for high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Ms. Deen, Michelle has been getting her hands dirty for a while, now.

The People’s Revolutionary Struggle takes the battle to Food Network!

With all of the Americans starving, it is good to see the People’s Revolutionary Leadership giving cooking tips to the proletariat!

Read the entire article. She’s also invited Sarah Palin and The McCains to be on her show. Honestly, I doubt that Paula Deen’s audience is a bunch of liberals.

Paula Dean is overrated anyway. She takes your heart-clogging comfort food recipe and then makes it even more heart-clogging purely for the shock value. She does not care about the taste at all--just about shocking you.

I submit this recipe as evidence. Paula uses lard as a hot dog topping

The woman has a bread pudding recipe that uses glazed donuts from Krispy Kreme. She must have a high metabolism, otherwise she'd look like Paul Prudhomme by now.

Not surprising as he is trying to sell a steaming pile to America. For their sake, I do hope that they managed to edit out the parts where Michelle calls her "Paula Dean Saltine".

I disagree. That was the EXCUSE that the Presidencial Candidates wife, Michelle Obama, used for NOT showing up with her husband at the 9/11 event, although the Republican candidate and his wife was there.

She didn’t feel too particularly proud of her country on that day.

Fried chicken is only racist if you serve it with watermelon.
Honestly I heard somone say that you couldn’t serve watermelon at a BBQ fundraising event because the addition of watermelon would be perceived as racist.

She doesn't feel proud of her country on any day. The Obama camp has relegated her to cooking shows and “fluff” to keep the voters from asking her questions she won't answer and to keep her from blowing it for them. I hope through the internet we can remind America of her NOT showing up for the 9/11 event, because of her kids, and now able to leave her kids to travel to Savannah, to Indiana.....It needs to be constantly reminded that she is anti-America!!!

“Anyone who cooks like Paula Dean is asking for high cholesterol and high blood pressure.”

So true, sigh. Paula Deen’s ‘Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Butter Cake’ is a Thanksgiving staple in my house. But I only make it once a year..... when the name says butter, it means BUTTER. Delicious.

I stopped being able to tolerate Paula after the show with Jimmy Carter. Listening to Paula rave on about what a great guy he was REALLY spoiled my ‘appetite’ for her. Quite nauseating, actually.

cheers, pattyjo

Obama told Deen her husband's personal favorite is a steaming bowl of chili, and the first meal she ever cooked for him was a seafood gumbo.

I don't believe her story. On the remote chance that she's telling the truth, I'd bet that her seafood gumbo sucks. The dish is supposed to have shellfish like crabs, shrimp, and oysters. I don't think there's much of that in the middle of the country. Maybe she used Rocky Mountain oysters...
