Posted on 01/20/2003 3:20:31 PM PST by christie

A BIG FReeper THANKS to all who bought The Clinton Legacy Cookbook. Your emails and comments on threads have been heartwarming and a wonderful reward to those of us who devoted our time and love to this project. We are grateful for your kind and humorous words and want each and every one of you to know we appreciate you taking the time to write.

Thanks to all those who loved the cookbook enough to order more for your friends and family, or who gave their copies away as gifts and wanted another copy of their own.

A big hug to all.

Here are some of the wonderful reviews:


To: carlo3b

I just received my two copies of the cookbook. Carlo, I have over 80 cookbooks and this is among the best! That is, it is practical, well written, and beautifully done. Blessing on thy head and Angelique's (though she is enjoying blessings now in Heaven, undoubtably), because a great deal of work obviously went into it! Thanks very much.

I'd order more immediately, but at the moment I'm buying laptops, Cubes and accompanying games, etc. But I highly recommend the Clinton Legacy cookbook!

I too just received my Clinton Legacy Cookbook and couldn't be happier. It is one hilarious work of art, a tribute to Free Republic, and chocked full of wonderful-sounding recipes (not to mention a hugh undertaking). Thank you and all involved with this masterpiece!

I've decided to add Clinton Tails (lobster by otterpond) and Fettuccine al FReepin Fredo (your recipe) to our Christmas dinner menu as mountain oysters aren't in season here right now. I cannot wait to attempt Phantom Lord's pork pot stickers and many other fabulous concoctions sometime over the holidays as well.

A work of art! Thank you sir!

Just got my books, thanks for the autographs. They look great, kudos to the printer. Rarely does the printed art look even close to what the arteest wanted but in this case the front cover color etc. is perfect!

Haven't read much of the content but so far it is hillaryous! Hell, I think I just created a word! (hillaryous)

/well, Houston Chapter.......WHAT DO YOU THINK

Carlo. This Cookbook is FANTASTIC!

Many Thanks to you for all your efforts and hard work. And, to all FReepers who contributed.

ALL-

The recipes are great.......this is much, much more than recipes (with hilarious names). It has actual posts! tips, notes, warnings.

A great read! Soon to be a bestseller!!!

Help support FReerepublic and give 'em as CHRISTmas presents.

Thanks everyone!

I've been on the earth for a while, but I've seen it all now. Today Carlo was gracious enough to come by our monthly chapter meeting with a box full of books. Twenty minutes after arriving home and reading this book, I had to stop reading it due to a splitting headache, and a severe pain in my sides from the laughter. This is one you do not want to miss. BTW it is chock full of great recipes.
Carlo my man, you need to make Rush, Hannity, Hume, et al aware of your little tome. This rates right up there with Paul Shanklin's parodies. Best twenty buck I've ever spent!

This is the first time in my life I've had a cookbook out in the living room as a coffee-table book! It catches my guests' eyes because of the boffo cover. They leaf through it and then I begin to hear the chuckles, then the guffaws.

I gave one of my cookbooks to my sister and she's way ahead of me in making the recipes. She's loving the results

These books make great presents, stocking stuffers and hostess gifts. I have a couple of recipes of my own in there, try 'em, you'll love 'em.

Thanks for the heads up. This cookbook is so super! I bought two, one for me and one as a Christmas present. It is perfect. A hoot on every page and so darned useful too!

I highly recommend it for those conservative birthdays, anniversaries, or other celebrations. Maybe just a 'hey I like you' gift.

I've got my eye out for the mailman (Mr. Hunk), cause my
copies should be here by now! E-Bay - hurry up.
Actually, it will probably lead to another order - anyone know of a good treadmill under $l,500?

Not very witty, but here's the first effort...

Inside of Ol' Crusty
She looks like a man,
But the "Crisco Kid" is
Just fat in the can.

Ole Crusty intrigues us
black pantsuits do hide
many bulges and ripples that fester inside
beneath those dank trousers
of cavernous size
are dimples of cellulite
upon massive thighs
We cannot but marvel
no matter how hard
this wretch can accumulate
all that gross lard
She eats double portions
The waitress she stiffs
Her breakfasts and dinners
wind up on her hips
Alas, our Ole Crusty
AKA Crisco Kid
will have problems running
for a presidential bid
no matter which party
no matter the man
her dire diagnosis???
fat in the can
