The only people I know IRL that are all upset about this whole Paula Deen thing are morbidly obese white women. I did not know she was such a hero...

When someone says it's ok to eat all of the butter, cream cheese, sugar, and all the other stuff that's so good but so bad for you, you kinda crush on them.

Not me of course. I think most of the stuff she makes looks pretty gross. I mean sure butter sugar...yummy, but I'd probably go into a diabetic coma after the first bite. <shrug>

As I was trying to leave my MILs this morning, I had to remind a very sad faced Lulu of this. Very sad face replaced with a smile very quickly!

All the Paula Deen rugs are on clearance at Kmart. THey were cute, but still crazy expensive for being on clearance-- small, rubber-backed rugs (small as in maybe 18 inches by two feet?), still like $15. Originally sold for over $30? WTH? Because they have her name on it?

I was at Walmart yesterday (fans) and there was a display of her cookware. I can use new pots and pans,so I was thinking they must be going pretty cheaply. Wrong. Not even on sale/clearance, just the normal price. <shrug> I'll go to Big Lots.

Apparently this "news" is keeping us from finding out about Kanye West's lyrics that are pissing off people re: Parkinson's:

"Soon as I pull up and park the Benz / We get this bitch shaking like Parkinson's."

Geez. People are hypersensitive.

There were pictures of her Savannah restaurant with people lined up. Your observation was spot on. All white and certainly all with big butts.

That being said, the reaction is so strong that it feels uncomfortably like an internet lynching.

I find it particularly irritating to see the commentary about how it is okay for blacks and black comedians especially to use the word because they have more latitude but to come crushingly hard down on a middle aged white woman for a generalize attitude. I have seen snippets of her deposition testimony- she seems to be catching it more for setting up a plantation wedding with black waiters like in Shirley Temple I think that is how she phrased it).

Give it a year or so. She will be back. Tiger Woods did it.People don't puke at the mention of Michael Vick. Anthony Weiner is leading the race for NYC mayor (In case there is any doubt, that is a cynical statement)

So what label do you put on someone like Kanye West?
Low class?
Tacky?
Attention ho?
Narcissistic, as in its all about me and F' you?

Yeah, I find that rationalization disgusting. But I wont start on that diatribe.
