Republican food?  There's such a thing as "Republican" food?

Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!

If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.

Perhaps it all started with those dreadful "Freedom Fries".  I mean really.  If you can't bring yourself to call then "French Fries" just call them "fries". No big deal. Potatoes and fried potatoes are not French, they're only called "French" fries because Thomas Jefferson would serve potatoes "in the French manner" (ie cut into batons and deep fried) when he was in the White House.  That got shortened to "french fries" somewhere along the way.  

There was a video made asking people at the RNC what they ate, and it became a spoof video when they were told the Republicans ate Republican food. I haven't actually heard the video, but watching it, it doesn't look like a spoof. It looks like a reality video.

And those got me to wondering - do the Republicans actually think they eat different food from other Americans?

What do you think?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    New diary up: LGBT Literature: Edmund White updates the Gay Guide. The notion of "Republican Food" is ludicrous, but in a New Day diary navajo posted, I think, last Friday, about our favorite ancestral foods, a couple of people wrote about the Mormons and Jell-O, so maybe . . .

    Walking more upright today yay! I'm still stiff but I'm not shuffling along any more either. I think the flare is slowly easing off. Spending most of yesterday in bed helped. I can look at my comment history and tell how my day was LOL. Saturday my comments were buzzing, I had two diaries go up, etc. Sunday the morning and early afternoon was busy, died down toward evening and stopped dead around 7:30. Yesterday, two comments, that was it.

    I'm working on tweaking my son's school work this morning. I've written out some questions for his history and science note taking and chapter questions, etc.

    I also think we're going to tackle vocabulary differently this year.The last few years we were defining words from the SAT dictionary, and yes, his vocab has been growing, it's been working. I think I'm going to try decoding words with him this year, working more extensively with prefixes, suffixes and roots so when he runs into a word he doesn't know he can figure out from the parts and the context the meaning. I'm hoping he's ready for this, if not we'll go back to memorization. But I think this will help him more if he can grasp it.

      Upright is good.

      Staying in bed too long makes me stiff - I think 5 hours is my maximum, then I have to get up, walk around, do some chores, and I can go back to bed for another 3 hours. That's an improvement - it used to be that I had to get up every 2 hours, but as I've aged, I can sleep longer.

      Good luck on the vocabulary teaching!

        makes me stiff if I'm not in a flare. If I'm already in a flare I'm going to be stiff no matter what, and sitting up is simply exhausting after a while. The big key to getting past a flare for me is to REST. So I'll get up for an hour or so, then lie back down for several hours, then get up for an hour or so, etc.

        I read several diaries yesterday but didn't do a lot of comments because I was so brain fogged I didn't trust myself to have the ability to put the words together in a semi-intelligent fashion. Plus, they always affect my hands and typing hurts. When I'm up during a flare I often end up doing something mindless and mouse based, like playing solitaire or Bejeweled.

  •  Doesn't it feel like there is twice as much to do (5+ / 0-)

    the day after a Holiday?  I prefer a day when there is one scheduled event, and today I am juggling five!  I left the "get twenty things done today" stuff behind when I retired.  

    I have always enjoyed puttering, and now I do that with a vengance!  Of course it helps that I can't remember what else there is to do, unless I'm working from a list!

    We are hoping for a bit of "Isaac rain" here, otherwise I'll be dragging the hose around tomorrw!

    Hope everyone had the holiday they desired!

    to benefit Martin Heinrich for Senate (yay! he's a good guy :)

    but I also feel like I'm fighting off a mild bug. Some guy all over me (eeeww) when I in the check-out line at Walgreen's yesterday. Then last night I stayed up way too late and got sorta chilled under the cooler (my bad).

    I think I better this afternoon resting & doing Jin Shin Jyutsu self-help. Not my usual go-go-go style these days, I'm promising you all I will take care of myself!

    Was not up when I left for work this morning, just got home not too long ago.  Mindless, hot, tired, and could easily crawl into bed right now, if it wouldn't completely screw up my sleeping schedule.  Hell, even a nap sometimes makes me wonky for my sleep schedule.

    I just want to get through this week and will probably spend some time next Tuesday out at Lake Eola, because I'll need some downtime away from people.

    Oh, Noddy, look for a diary to get queued to use as a back up...it will make you giggle....and it was COMPLETELY FLORIDASNMOM'S IDEA!!!!

    gotta go to one mall to get a new charging cord or two for the iPods; and Pennys for hypoallergenic pillows for the boyo. And the Barnes and Noble is across the street, for some last minute birthday shopping.

    Ladies, if you can manage it, don't EVER have a kid birthday directly before or after Dad's birthday! How we ever survived the early years, with parties, I'll never know! In our case, Dad likes as much fuss over HIS birthday as one expects for a kid-birthday, which I don't really mind, but it's hard keeping the energy equally up!

    I think it's getting easier as teh Kid gets older and more blase about birthday stuff, but it's still 'sposed to be:

    TWO sets of presents,
    TWO "whatever you want for dinner",
    TWO "what do you want for birthday cake",
    TWO "whatever movie you want",

    directly one after the other. Even with help, that's a lot.

      was born on Cookie Day, one of our most sacred holy days in Numenism.  It took a while to convince people that he deserved his own bithday celebration and separate gifts from the holy day.  And then, because Cookie Day is close to Christmas, I had to battle it out with Christian relatives who wanted to roll his birthday into their holy day.

      I finally pointed out that that they didn't roll their children's birthdays into Christmas, and those cousins all got separate birthdays with real birthday parties, and my son deserved the same.

      My co-Numenists were far more understanding and quick to embrace the separation of birthday and holy day. The Christian relatives never really "got" it.

      So, I understand the need to duplicate celebrations. It's a Good Thing you do.
