Georgia GOP: Paula Deen > MLK

I wonder if any of the respondents knew they were being trolled.....

Quote:
According to a new poll by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, Republicans in Georgia have a more favorable opinion of Paula Deen than they do of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Favorability ratings with Georgia Republicans: Paula Deen 73/11, Martin Luther King Jr. 59/28

Deen, of course, was dropped by the Food Network after admitting that “yes, of course” she used the N-word, and amid other allegations of racism by former employees.

I want to know what the LDL cholesterol level is for Emerill Lagasse! Afterall, he had a segment on Food Network called—Pork Fat Always Rules. (Bacon-wrapped trout with tomato-thyme butter sauce; Southern-style green beans with bacon and new potatoes; root-beer-glazed pork chops with bourbon-mashed sweet potatoes; tangerine-glazed pork belly.)

While we're at it how 'bout Mario Batali? He's gettin' fatter. And Rachel Ray?

At least Alton Brown went on a diet.I know he eats whole grains too.

Because these guys all have lucrative contracts with big diabetes pharma.

And by the way... my hate is not misplaced. I do volunteer work for a nonprofit where a lot of what they do is care for diabetics. So yes, I completely resent a person who exploits a horrible disease like this. Even if you don't hate her, the idea that people are defending her high favorability rating is ludicrous. She has a right to do what she wants, but don't make excuses for what she is doing.

Would you fall for it if Riley Cooper tried to prove he wasn't a racist by calling a white guy a "****er"?

I have a lot less of a problem with Riley Cooper than I do with Paula Deen. I think Cooper is a guy who made a stupid joke and didn't know somebody was watching. Deen, on the other hand... I really don't care about racist comments as much as I care that she just doesn't seem like a good person, and her alleged racist comments are one of many things in that story.

Her comments aren't "alleged", they're self-reported. Riley Cooper's comments weren't jokes.

As I suspected. The real reason behind your pov. Much like Zimmerman. You always come down on the side of the left on such things.

I liked that, on his podcast, someone asked him about doing a vegan cooking show, or at least a few episodes for Food Network, and Alton replied that he was an unrepentant ominvore. He wasn't opposed to occasional vegan offerings as part of an overall omnivore consumption pattern, but wasn't particularly interested in promoting any particular subgenre of consumption as a preferred diet. Also wasn't opposed to stringing together a few vegan dishes as an episode if he found enough of them compelling.

I'm definitely not making excuses. What he said was incredibly stupid. I don't think they make him racist. I think he was just making jokes to impress people.

As of now, I see it as a guy just saying something incredibly stupid, and possibly something he didn't mean. If something even close to this happens again, I'll have a different perspective.

What are you talking about. I'm not calling Deen a racist. I'm saying that she is being judged for racist comments she made. I don't really care about that. I care more about her other behaviors which I don't like and think comments she made fit in to a track record of not being a nice person.

Is this supposed to be something like that airhead Lisa Bloom's 'lighthearted' creepy-assed cracker?

Didn't say you called her a "racist" but you just had to include her racist comments ( if they're that and I don't think they are in that context and because she supported Obama) in that last line of yours. Contradicting yourself again. Or trying to speak with a forked tongue.

How can you know if someone is a good person because she has some critics? Everyone has some critics. Even saints had them. And everyone has faults too.

Interesting. I read his diet program and it seemed to be a form of food combining with certain days for whole grains only etc. His background is actually in filmaking. He went to culinary school later to help with food programming as food programming was pretty poor to him before FoodNetwork.
