OK, so I get up early,and turn on that wretched MSNBC with Morning Joe, and even more wretched Mika Brzezinski. Her rant on my poor Paula. Oh, the wages of sin with Paula. Once the drumbeat begins, there will be no mercy for my Paula. She will be marched off the plank into the flames of food hell. How dare we enjoy a meal that is not composed of fruits and vegetables? How dare we enjoy butter which by the way, it is up for grabs how bad it is for us compared to margarine. Our palate must learn to adjust to “salt free”. Civilizations have fought over this very edible substance. So here we go, I say let us all eat cake and whatever else pleases our palate. In moderation of course!
What’s more, she had waited three long, greasy years since her diagnosis to come out. (Is diabetes like being gay)? During that period, she promoted the deep-fried life without acknowledging her firsthand experience of how a person can be burned by it.
That’s the kind of thing that made me consider some past put-downs of Deen elitist. After all, she isn’t alone in exhorting people to pig out. She’s just unusually cornmeal-crusted, saucy and bewigged about it.
The problem with Paula Deen is that she has lied to her supporters not once but twice, first by promoting her “down home cooking” as if those words give some magic credence to the health factors of her food and then by attempting to fix her lifestyle choice with a magical pill which she stupidly assumes will fix all of her problems and the problems of people who live her “down home lifestyle” Inquisitr
