right-wing blogs we like

Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

A nice recipe for sugar overload. I would have preferred one of with beer batter or any recipe that contained beer.


I didn't know twinkies were still around. I always preferred the chocolate cupcakes with the white icing design...what were they called?

Happy Fourth!


Wow! Twinkies and jello...a creation that could emerge only from the cavernous soul of Cindy McCain! (The Twinkie Cookbook is available for $.35 on Amazon! Helluva deal!!)


Dan White also used the "twinkie defense" We shouldn't let crazy republicans off the hook.


Why does Cindy McCain hate motherhood so much?


Hostess Cupcakes, joanie! We could never afford them, and my neighbor had them every day in her lunch at school.

Those twinkies are used in place of ladyfingers, which are glorified twinkies without the creme filling. I have seen that recipe before, using much more expensive ingredients. But if there is no chocolate or berry pie, why bother with dessert???

Interesting that the media obsesses over every syllable that comes out of Michelle Obama's mouth, but gives Cindy a pass regarding the drugs she stole from a charity to feed her prescription drug addiction. Interesting that Cindy's spending of over 700K on clothes this last month does not earn her the title of "elitist" but the idea of Michelle having an Ivy League education does.

Anyway, here is recipe I like to take to BBQ picnics:

2 large cans of B&M Baked Beans

1/2 to 1 cup dark molasses

1 or 2 walla walla sweet onions cut into thin rings

1/2 package of regular Little Smokies sausages OR maple bacon

salt to taste

Chop up the bacon or sausages into very small slices, brown in a skillet until slightly cooked--do not overcook.

Drain completely on a paper towel.

Put all ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low heat for 3-4 hours. Taste to determine if you want a little more molasses or salt.

Tastes even better the next day, reheated!


This blog is starting to slog, where's duffman at least he kept this somewhat exciting.


It is rumored that Duffman is still in recovery from his previous blog addiction and depression as a result Sen Clinton getting knocked out of the Presidential race by Obama. Either that or he is working behind the scenes to ensure that Hillary successfully hijacks the nomination from Obama at the Demo convention next month. Nothing has been confirmed or denied at this time.


A-Rod stands to lose over half his fortune, all of his homes, his jet, and his kids because when it comes to Madonna, he was thinkin' with his little head instead of his big one.

My late father would say of Madonna:
"If she has as many stickin' out of her as she had stickin' in her, she would look like a porcupine."


Madonna has long been a bellweather of cultural decay. Good quote about her.

Hey - it's all about Madonna - she's made her millions and odds are she'll get the divorce she's looking for. Will A-rod be her next boy toy ? That will diminish him more to many if he does. Remember his infamous quote upon leaving Seattle ?"It's not about the money".


Madonna thinks she is God but she wants to flirt with the Devil.


Ah, Hostess cupcakes - makes my mouth water just remember them. I have a chocolate fetish.

Your recipe sounds good. I shall give it a try.

A-Rod and Madonna? I hope not.

Big Pink

Cindy McCain's Twinkie-pie... mmmm
