Local restaurant creates Palin sandwich (McPalin Grilled Pig Sandwich w/ Side of Lipstick, Fries)

A local restaurant is incorporating politics into its menu.

Lion's Den restaurant in Midtown Anchorage has created its own specialty: the McPalin Grilled Pig Sandwich.

Lion's Den owner Dale Keefe says he normally 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.

Any menu items for the true PIGS, Biden and the Obomination? Or is this strictly partisan politics?

I can't imagine buying this.

Why would I want to pay a premium for ridiculing my candidates - McPain/Palin? They need to win - not be ridiculed in such a ridiculous way.

Well, someone probably thought of the Obama sandwich.

Just two buns with nothing on the inside, served with hot air.

Just a salad for 0bama: Arugula with a dressing of vinegar and bitters. No substance at all.

I’m not sure who’s being ridiculed, but I don’t think it’s Palin.

Good for him. Turned it into another plus for our side.

And I am thinking that Obama’s sandwich would not be pork, if ya know what I mean, kind of an Al-Taqiyaa special...

Nah. I guess he’s like Brad Benson of Plainfield New Jersey who makes jokes about non-running DemocRats and Sarah Palin on the radio.

He runs some Honda Dealership there and has a commercial on the radio about Hillary Clinton and a lapdance, Al Gore and a ride in his energy consuming vehicle and Sarah Palin givnig kids sex education classes. He’s pretty crass but htinks he is a comedian.
