Smackdown!: Polenta vs. Tim Pawlenty
WHAT?: Italian dish made from cornmeal.
PROS: Wonderful backdrop for sauce.
CONS: Bland without the aforementioned sauce. Or butter. Lots and lots of butter.
WHO?: Republican presidential hopeful. Former governor of Minnesota.
PROS: Makes Wonder bread feel edgy.
CONS: Willing to spout crazy right-wing ideas but with little to no verve. Bland, even with sauce. Or butter. Even lots and lots of butter.
WINNER: Polenta, by a landslide. If the Republicans wise up and nominate polenta for president, then the race might be interesting.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Little to no posting for the coming week. Busy, busy.
