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.

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.
What do they mean by “selling out”.
I’m not sure who’s being ridiculed, but I don’t think it’s Palin.
A sh*t sandwich!! There used to be a prank website that sold them to be shipped to your designated enemy (contained the real thing from their pet dog)
pMSNBC has ran this story at least three times today...
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...
..an Obama sandwich? Pure baloney! Baloney that’s waaaaaaaaaaaaay past the “Use by Date.”
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.
#14 he’s full of it.
Brad Benson ... never heard of him.
Plainfield is not the greatest area ... .
Plainfield is Oboma land!
Clara Peller said it best: “Where’s the beef?
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.
I like Sarah Palin quite a lot but this sandwich grosses me out.
