September 07, 2008



I love zucchini..you can give me all of yours, BlaM. My fave is zucchini bread, but I also have used it in lasagna, saute', baked, roasted, etc.
Last year I had a garden and I had just one plant, because I know better than to have more than that.

Love those pictures...when I was up in Palmer, Alaska on a visit, their visitor's center had a garden and the squash families and the cabbages were the size of Volkswagons. The delphiniums were about 10' feet high.


Not a big fan of cooked veggies unless they're green inside: beans, peas and spinach. Go figure.

Raw? I like 'em all. (except for the squash family)

Sparky, I'll give you any zukes I get as well.


Bart, you're a fool with no sense of humor...


Yeah, Bart! So there.

Not to change the subject from those riveting zukes (I prefer cukes!) but

Bender on Palin:
"Another governor of limited experience who was a cheerleader" and people want to have a drink with.

Now just who do you think Bender is comparing Palin to...

gosh, I just can't imagine.

Okay, back to zukes and cukes! Let's take a poll: how many of you scholarly conservatives think Palin prefers zukes over cukes?


Pretty sure that fried or grilled zucchini goes better with mooseburger, bear meatloaf or reindeer sausage. Cukes are like dimocrats and give us conservatives nasty gas. You just gotta chew 'em up n spit 'em out.


Oh, is that what she does with those thick zukes? Given her rather thin resume, and given that barracudas aren't usually found cooking in the kitchen when they could be killing wolves from helicopters, I figured she'd find a more adventurous use for the damn things.

I'm sure she cooks 'em, chucks. (hahahaha)


Hell, maybe you're right. Maybe she uses cukes for ... well, you know.

Anything in a pinch, huh?

Can't always get what you want, huh, babe?


It just occurred to me:

if she's on the road with ancient mccain, she'll probably need that zuke or cuke...cause he sure ain't gonna come through.

But after watching the convention wherein he was watching her ass, I'm sure he'll give it the old college try. Bet he was fifth from the bottom of his class in that category too.

Seems to me about the only thing they really have in common is killing... Now that's something to chew on.


Make that "moose-jerky to chew on."

Okay, you can have your blog back, Michael. I'm out of here. Another beautiful day!


Geez joanie
I did not realize how excited you were over this zuccini/cucumber thing. I knew that you had many a lonely moment, but dayum. I am sorry I posted. You need to find a partner that you don't need to fertalize or plug in or at least make one up. We will never know.


Thanks for your good wishes, chucks. Being the typical repug guesser, low info kinda guy you are, I know you means well.

Keep trying. You might hit the target with me eventually.

Loves you like a bro, chucks.


I say she prefers nukes! :) [sorry Bla'M, couldn't help myself]


Blathering Michael, I love how this is a political blog as well as about media. You do a terrific job, and I nearly always agree with you. You do so many different things well, it's unbelievable sometimes.

Sometimes you talk about food, sometimes you talk about cable TV hosts. Sometimes you talk about radio hosts. Sometimes you're just funny and extremely entertaining.

Nobody else has the guts to step up to you and tell you the truth. Your blog is one of the best in the blogosphere. Thanks for all you do. Can I send you a check?


Yeah, having a Governor who was a secessionist is much worse than having one who was the lead attorney who got the huge settlement against the tobacco companies.


Re; zucchini song... You all are a bunch of perverts... I like that!

Re; the Sarah part... Face it, you lefties are in the toilet... Unless this 'affair' thing turns out.

'Bout time for a Dori thread dontcha' think? Or is he behind in his payments?


blathering michael

Dori is not paid up. And I won't make any more glowing posts about him until I get a check.


Hey BM, I'm seriously honored. I lurk here alot. Your group of regulars are great fun. I've posted exactly twice, and both times I've gotten a response from the HNIC his own self... Makes me feel welcome.. Thanks.



Uhh... You'd take a check from a weasel like that???


Re: Palin - the affair thing is a dud - no legs. You'd look better if you held your fire until something scandalous or lie that is vetted about her is confirmed. The leftwing media already is in a state of FUBAR.

It is like crying wolf too many times and it is getting to look that way now - unless some new revelation like in the firing of the sheriff thing is confirmed.

Don't think the Clinton's are being all that concerned about Palin (they may be later if McCain gets in and it affects Hillary's run for President in 2012) - the Clinton's enemies are the progressives within the party that hijacked the nomination from Hillary.


Didn't Woody Allen use big vegetables?
