"It's good though!"
With all the punditocracy in a collective swoon over Sarah Palin's culinary acumen for moose stew, and encyclopedic recall over the finer points on how to kill and grill a moose, I couldn't help but harken back to the late great folk artist (and 1968 Peace and Freedom party Senate candidate in Utah) Utah Phillips, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
Phillips' claim to fame is his 1973 classic novelty song/sketch routine "Moose Turd Pie." The recording is an ingenious exploration of life working on the railroads out west, and the clever ways of reusing the lowly "pasture pastry." Great storytelling, and hilarious one-liners all along the way to the punchline!
So, here's my long distance dedication to the once and always governor of Alaska until she gets impeached, Sarah Palin! (And if this recipe finds its way onto the McCain campaign's website, now you'll know where Sarah stole it from!)
