Local restaurant creates Palin sandwich

The McPalin sandwich has grilled pork tenderloin on it with caramelized apples, red onions, melted cheddar cheese, and crisp bacon.

The sandwich is served with a side of lipstick and fries.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska-- A local restaurant is incorporating politics into its menu.

Lion's Den restaurant in midtown Anchorage has created its own specialty called the McPalin grilled pig sandwich.

Lion's Den owner Dale Keefe says normally he keeps politics out of work conversation.

But when he was making sandwiches with his crew last week, the big top news story was Barack Obama's comment, "You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig."

Obama's comment began Keefe's political food creation.

"I just kept thinking about that news story when I was making sandwiches and I just kind of had an epiphany," Keefe said.

The McPalin sandwich has grilled pork tenderloin on it with caramelized apples, red onions, melted cheddar cheese, and crisp bacon.

Most food creators add some type of garnish such as parsley or fruit to top off their dish, but Keefe decided to do something a little more personal.

The sandwich is served with a side of lipstick and fries.

The McPalin grilled pig sandwich runs for about $13, and has been selling out.

It’s much better than a “Senator Chris Dodd/Senator Ted Kennedy” waitress sandwich!

I suppose the Obama sandwich would be warmed over Bullsh*t on dry toast.

“grilled pork tenderloin on it with caramelized apples, red onions, melted cheddar cheese, and crisp bacon.”

Sounds delicious. I’d prefer a side of slaw.

cute!

Now would anyone want to guess what is in an Obama special?
Turkey? (dark meat only please)

A McCain special? (topped with limburger- hold your nose while you eat it)

A Hillary special? (Fried chicken, two large thighs and a left wing)

Gov. Palin, due to this article, I instruct you to avoid Ted Kennedy and Chris Dodd, so as to avoid an unwelcome advance from two men likely to misinterperet the meaning of this term.

An Obama sandwich would be two pieces of burned toast with several slices of baloney, plenty of mustard, and a piece of Russian goat cheese between the toast.

Hmmm!

Toss-up between this and the “bologna and arugula” selection!

I don’t know what’s in the Michelle Obama special but it sure is angry- you got to eat it before it eats you...

Obviously the left understood exactly what Obama was saying when he made his lipstick on a pig comment.

"Waiter, there is a foot in my Biden Burger!"

The Biden burger would be a Boca burger, with a foot in it. Besides being Spanish for "mouth", it is a plagiarized version of actual meat.

LOL! on the first part -- thanks for the info on the second part of your post.

Someone needs to tell Biden, "Quiete la boca" (I hope I got that right.)

Of course, the onion must be “grilled”, unmercifully.
