AND THEY'RE ALL ON FOOD STAMPS  10:38 am June 1, 2011

Liberals Eat Fancy Healthy Food, Conservatives Eat Awful Garbage

by Wonkette Jr.

Teabagger Gourmet.According to a scientific survey of some people on the Internet somewhere, liberals eat the fanciest of fancy foods — while conservatives literally eat filthy garbage, mostly from fast-food anusburger chains. See if you can tell which meals were far more likely to be enjoyed by left-leaning humanists: coconut curry lamb and rice, fresh fruit, Pan Asian/French Fusion cuisine and organic vegetables. The answer, of course, is “All of them, Katie.” Because only liberals would even know what these foods are, and conservatives are eating another grease glob off their belly in the parking lot behind the Rite-Aid.

Some website called “Hunch Blog” apparently has enough survey-clickin’ users to form a completely representative sample of American cultural and political habits. And this is what was discovered:

  • Conservatives drink carbonated corn syrup all day long.
  • Conservatives don’t know what “foodie” means. (It means “urban liberal who spends too much money at restaurants.”)
  • Liberals eat ethnic food.
  • Conservatives think a BBQ chicken/Meat Lover’s Special XXXL delivery pizza from the chain with the ads in the Pennysaver is “ethnic food.”

Once I was in a parking lot of an off-highway Shoney's somewhere in Tennessee. From this vantage point I saw a woman who was trying to enter a neighboring Burger King, but was too fat to get through the door. It was a profound moment for me.

Sparky_McGruff June 1, 2011 at 10:46 am

Isn't that what the drive up window is for?

JustPixelz June 1, 2011 at 10:53 am

Exactly – just roll up to the wind'er.

Lascauxcaveman June 1, 2011 at 11:31 am

So this is why they're retrofitting a new (larger) door at my local Burger King.

Gopherit June 1, 2011 at 11:40 am

Along with every major metro area having to upgrade to bariatric ambulances…….and no, I am not kidding.

anniegetyerfun June 1, 2011 at 12:19 pm

I had bariatric surgery in January in hopes that drastic weight loss would help get rid of my diabeetus, which I've had it since I was a teenager, even though I wasn't actually fat when I developed it. At the time of my surgery, I weighed 207 pounds (at 5'8"), so I was fat, but not "can't get through the door" fat.

But they had to use all the bariatric-specialty equipment for me, I guess because the different departments don't share their stuff (?), so I was on this HUGE gurney, and they had a special method, like an air hockey mattress, for moving me to the operating table. I half expected to see a crane, and the surgical staff were teasing me for making their job too easy.

The wheelchair that I was offered later was twice the size of a normal one. It all felt very surreal, but when I think back on the people who attended the first "So, You Think You Want Lapband?" session with me, I guess that's just what you need.

Gopherit June 1, 2011 at 12:41 pm

It is surreal. I definitely can stand to lose weight…….but you know there's something really fucked somewhere when a gurney that can take 600 lb isn't big enough for standard medical equipment. I was in the hospital for an angry random infection a few months back and had a fun conversation with an EMT while being transferred to another hospital. He said he'd just come off workman's comp from trying to lift an oversized patient into his bus. This guy was in good shape. Like you said, surreal.

widget2011 June 1, 2011 at 7:01 pm

Diabeetus? Really?……..Do you have a "torlet"?

Tundra Grifter June 1, 2011 at 2:42 pm

Some years ago I was sitting in front of a Baskins Robbins, waiting for my date.

After watching some of the folks walking into that establishment, i thought instead of a door it should have a large cut-out. If you can't make it through, you probably shouldn't be eating any more ice cream.

GOPCrusher June 1, 2011 at 4:15 pm

I'm sure that there was a lawsuit filed against Burger King for not providing an entrance large enough to accomodate this woman's ponderous bulk.

Swampgas_Man June 1, 2011 at 6:04 pm

I surpress my appetite by watching my fellow all-you-can-eat-and-then-some diners.

ttommyunger June 1, 2011 at 10:43 am

Oh please! Are we having a slow day, Wonkette? I think most assuredly so.

Barb June 1, 2011 at 10:46 am

I agree TTommy!

ttommyunger June 1, 2011 at 11:00 am

Thank you. I never know when I'm just being cranky.

weejee June 1, 2011 at 11:09 am

We are what we tweet.

Kinda, sorta, well poop. Guess the A game was yesterday and we're having a Wednesday – post three-day weekend sag.

ttommyunger June 1, 2011 at 11:39 am

OK, just checking. Maybe Sarah will cut a fart next to an open mike, who knows, the day is young?

Biel_ze_Bubba June 1, 2011 at 1:53 pm

Is someone still putting mikes next to her? I thought we were done with that.

ttommyunger June 1, 2011 at 3:53 pm

You couldn't pry the press from her with a silver-plated crowbar.

BaldarTFlagass June 1, 2011 at 11:19 am

Slow days are nice once in a while. Keeps my blood pressure low, and reduces my desire to take a huge dump on the keyboard of the Foxtard in the next cubicle.

ttommyunger June 1, 2011 at 11:41 am

A cubicle? Next to a Foxtard? I will pray for you (no biggie, Baldar, you need the prayer and I need the practice).

mayor_quimby June 1, 2011 at 10:02 pm

Do eeet, do eeet! Maybe right on their Aeron chair

mumbly_joe June 1, 2011 at 11:19 am

Meh, if they were having a really slow newsday, they could always run my tip, about the C&L thing about how someone quantified scientifically that Congressthings' investments just so happen to do quite a bit better than the stock market at large, presumably because of magic/coincidence/ some reason other than insider trading and legislating their own financial interests I think that would be a fun story!.

Lascauxcaveman June 1, 2011 at 11:38 am

Meh, if they were having a really slow news day, they could could always run my tip about the Republican initiative in many states to make sure the poors & young people don't get to vote, because hey, they're all fraudsters and always vote wrong anyhow.

But you know, Wonkette has its weekly quota of "Americans Eat Crap" and "Palin is Still an Idiot" stories to file.

HistoriCat June 1, 2011 at 11:45 am

I think they're just trying to avoid a "Wonkette readers commit suicide en masse" headline if they dump too much of the uber-depressing stuff on us.

natoslug June 1, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Wonkette Jr. won't touch your tip either? I was hoping for a little tip lovin' as well. I thought my suggestion that we quit bombing Vieques Island and help Patri Friedman build his floating Libertarian Paradise as an alternative bomb range/Libertarian holding pen was worthy of a little exposure. But no, Wonkette Jr. refuses to provide me a happy ending.

ttommyunger June 1, 2011 at 11:44 am

Too complicated, too boring to get traction in 'Merika. Needz moar buttseks, hookers and diapers.

zhubajie June 1, 2011 at 7:09 pm

I admit, I was hoping for more weiner weiner jokes!

ttommyunger June 1, 2011 at 8:43 pm

I have no doubt you will have them, too.

What, no mention of Jello Fluff? No Fry Sauce? Hunch Blog won't know it's fatties until it hits the Mormon Belt.

mormos June 1, 2011 at 10:46 am

you're not a mormon until you've had jello with meat in it. This is a real thing, I know.

SpurningBeer June 1, 2011 at 10:56 am

Called "ass-pick," I hear.

BerkeleyBear June 1, 2011 at 11:40 am

Nah, that's the fancy foody term for it. Clear aspic or gelee is just gross as all get out, but it is considered haute cuisine.

I believe mormos is referring to sticking ham in Jell-O, which is a disgusting low end preperation.

JustPixelz June 1, 2011 at 10:56 am

An ironic food, considering jello is made from bones. The bones get revenge on their former meat prison.

HurricaneAli June 1, 2011 at 11:01 am

The bones get revenge on their former meat prison.

That was very poetic.

Steverino247 June 1, 2011 at 11:22 am

I always told my kids to eat everything on their plates because children behind the Zion Curtain had to eat shit like that.

Goonemeritus June 1, 2011 at 10:44 am

We can still win this thing if we out live them. Let’s get the FLOTUS to Ixnay on the healthay

CZL June 1, 2011 at 10:44 am

I grilled organic, grass fed locally sourced beef burgers this weekend. Had whole wheat buns, local veggies from the Farmer's Market, and a delightful artisan cheddar I found at the store. Served with kettle cooked organic chips.

Does this make me a Blue Dog?

jus_wonderin June 1, 2011 at 10:48 am

It makes you rude for not inviting us. grin.

DemmeFatale June 1, 2011 at 10:57 am

As long as we're confessing: I took shrimp salad sandwiches (on brioche buns) to the baseball game last night.
I guess if I was a Real American, I would have paid $7.00 for a shitty hot dog.

riverside68 June 1, 2011 at 10:59 am

Liberal ___________Conservative
grilled ____________beef
organic
grass-fed
locally sourced

Should I go on? (I don't think there is anything else on the conservative side.)
PS What's your address, I'll be over this weekend.

jus_wonderin June 1, 2011 at 11:03 am

If we borrow Lou Sarah's bus we could all go over. I wonder if there is a pool there?

DaRooster June 1, 2011 at 11:29 am

There's a pool… and a pond… pond would be good for you…

(My favorite line EVER)

jus_wonderin June 1, 2011 at 11:34 am

Okay. It is a deal. Bathing Suit Optional, of course?

HurricaneAli June 1, 2011 at 11:06 am

Except for the the chips and the cheddar (maybe the ww buns if they're not Nature's Own or something) that was probably a reasonably-priced meal right there. What these dipshits don't realize is that you can pay almost as much for locavore cuisine as you can for take out and, really, do they really take five seconds to think about the quality of the meat they're wolfing down from the dollar menu? Agh, this is the stuff that makes me pissed more than snarky.

CZL June 1, 2011 at 11:09 am

$18.90 to feed two with enough leftovers that I'm having burgers again for lunch today.

problemwithcaring June 1, 2011 at 11:19 pm

Elitist. (No seriously. The average American spends about half of that per day on food, and poor people probably spend closer to $5 for breakfast, lunch and dinner. )

AJWjr. June 1, 2011 at 1:08 pm

Depends. Did you buy it with food stamps? If so, then no…

justkillmenow June 1, 2011 at 1:38 pm

I had a great comment this weekend during our cookout. Guest: "Where did you get those lean, tasty brats? What are those?" Me:"Venison"
Am I no longer a lib if I kill my own meat?

Biel_ze_Bubba June 1, 2011 at 1:58 pm

"Where did you get those lean, tasty brats?"

We adopted them.

CZL June 1, 2011 at 2:04 pm

Real Muricans like Sarah Palin only pretend to hunt to get the anti-nigra tea party sportsmen vote.

ShaveTheWhales June 1, 2011 at 2:09 pm

But, what did you have for drinkies?

smitallica June 1, 2011 at 10:44 am

Considering their much higher propensity to watch Fox News and listen to Rush Limbaugh, conservatives also seem to eat a lot more horseshit than liberals.

However, in conservatives' defense, if horseshit was served at some tony TrBeCa café for $18 a plate, I'm sure liberals would GORGE themselves on it.

SorosBot June 1, 2011 at 10:52 am

Back when I was a college freshman I had the world's worst roommate, who religiously watch Rush's (thankfully long-dead) TV show every day. The majority of the ads were for either obvious scams or shitty greasy microwave meals; the show's top sponsor was Hot Pockets; you can't get much greasier or inedible than that shit.

jus_wonderin June 1, 2011 at 11:04 am

Hot Pockets should be used as a torture device. Right up there with Pizza fresh from the oven.

riverside68 June 1, 2011 at 11:03 am

Liberals don't gorge.

But at $18 a plate it would be the cheapest thing on the menu, so I am sure it would move.

ThundercatHo June 1, 2011 at 1:56 pm

Oh please, let it be so. I've got 3 horses and would be only too happy to supply an endless amt of pure organic horse shit. Plus, I bet if we dipped it in batter, deep fried it and dusted it with powdered sugar we might have some fair food.

ifthethunderdontgetya June 1, 2011 at 10:46 am

But Bill O'Reilly went to Harlem once.

Bill O'Reilly reported that he "couldn't get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia's restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City.

In contrast to myself, he probably never went back, which I suppose proves your point, Jr.
~

easynews June 1, 2011 at 10:23 pm

Ah, but you see he just thought that his food was the same. Me, I'm bettin' that the cook put a 'special' topping on it.

fartknocker June 1, 2011 at 10:46 am

Herman Cain couldn't make a decent pizza if he hired every Italian from New Jersey. If this asshole can't make a decent pizza, he's obviously not worthy to be President. Because Pizza is America.

Also, that survey was scientifically flawed. None of the measurements evaluated quiche, Jack Daniels whiskey, or chicken fajitas. Those are my food groups.

riverside68 June 1, 2011 at 11:05 am

That's because the best pizza in new jersey is made by mexicans.

tessiee June 2, 2011 at 11:42 pm

"None of the measurements evaluated quiche, Jack Daniels whiskey, or chicken fajitas. Those are my food groups."

Well, if you're going to get all sciencey and stuff about it, the four basic food groups are:
1. Sugar
2. Fat
3. Caffeine
4. Salt.
Chocolate contains three of the four, which is why it's considered the perfect food.

fuflans June 1, 2011 at 10:46 am

BBQ chicken/Meat Lover’s Special XXXL delivery pizza

this is jesus' food.

duh.

fredbell June 1, 2011 at 10:46 am

Huh?..I'm confused…..I thought the Pancakes and Sausage on a stick chocolate-chip flavor came dipped in melted cheddar cheese?…Is this the lo-fat alternative?

petehammer June 1, 2011 at 11:03 am

Due to the economy and the effects of "monetization," "Mega Cheeze Dipp'n" sauce is now sold separately (but on the same shelf). It still doesn't contain real cheddar cheese, but rather industrial lubricant byproduct from Koch Industries.

riverside68 June 1, 2011 at 11:08 am

Pleeeeze, it's dipped in 'MERICAN cheese!
Higher grease content means less work swallowing, Duh!

prommie June 1, 2011 at 10:47 am

Chris Christie eats EVERYTHING. Everything within reach, all the time. There are some new photos of him floating around, holy sweet jeebus, that is one fat fuck of a man.

PubOption June 1, 2011 at 10:52 am

Because he is fat, he has problems with hot weather, and therefore is actually trying to do something about climate change.

mrblifil June 1, 2011 at 11:24 am

He certainly absorbs more sunlight than the average individual, on a per square inch basis. Unfortunately because he is deathly pasty white, it all gets reflected back into the atmosphere along with the methane cocktail created by his excreta.

OneDollarJuana June 1, 2011 at 11:43 am

So if we can just install solar panels on him he can power a small town!

SheriffRoscoe June 1, 2011 at 5:12 pm

Excreta. I don't think it's ever crossed my mind to use that particular word. Upfist for mrblifil.

DaRooster June 1, 2011 at 10:58 am

Chris Christie eats EVERYTHING. Everything within reach, all the time.
Kinda like Sarah Palin's reading…

(Hurray… my first italics)

jus_wonderin June 1, 2011 at 11:06 am

KUDOS!

LesBontemps June 1, 2011 at 11:11 am

They look lovely.

Lascauxcaveman June 1, 2011 at 11:51 am

"Chris Christie eats EVERYTHING. Everything within reach, all the time."

I think what is being implied here is that Chris is not conservative enough, because he eats the fancy foods, as well as the anusburger pizzas.

So real conservatives are wondering if he's just a RINO. People seeing him from a distance are thinking maybe he's just a rhino.

starfanglednut June 1, 2011 at 2:34 pm

He eats all of 'em, Katie.

bumfug June 1, 2011 at 11:02 am

http://ridgewood.patch.com/articles/christie-land
This is a story about Christie taking a helicopter to his son's baseball game which I really don't give a shit about except the part where he gets off the chopper and TAKES A FUCKING LIMO for the 100 yard trip to the ballfield. No wonder he needs a mirror on a stick to see his balls.

Swampgas_Man June 1, 2011 at 6:12 pm

A limosine is just a rich man's hover-round.

Buckminster June 1, 2011 at 12:05 pm

He looks like he eats small children for breakfast.

tessiee June 2, 2011 at 11:44 pm

"Chris Christie … holy sweet jeebus, that is one fat fuck of a man."

I prefer the term coined by The Sopranos: parade float.

Buzz Feedback June 1, 2011 at 10:47 am

If you ever feel bad about your looks, head to IHOP on a Sunday morning.

AutomaticPilot June 1, 2011 at 10:55 am

Excactly! I always thought that I'd end up looking like the people who ate there, if I ate there too often. Which is why I never eat at Denny's. That place (both the food and the people) is disgusting.

DaRooster June 1, 2011 at 11:00 am

That's where they hold the fights right?

Biel_ze_Bubba June 1, 2011 at 2:38 pm

Oh yeah … been there. Nothing curbs the appetite like watching a whole family of wide-loads loading up their plates at a Denny's buffet.

Ducksworthy June 1, 2011 at 10:47 am

There is one curry Conservatives like. Vincent Price, How to Cook a Daring Curry
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bhIKhGOjc4&amp

OneYieldRegular June 1, 2011 at 1:26 pm

He's so great. That's hands-down my favorite cookbook, and I cook from it at least once a month (more than that is likely to result in a heart attack).

Biel_ze_Bubba June 1, 2011 at 2:39 pm

They curry favors all the time. Curry flavors, not so much.

VaWyo June 1, 2011 at 10:48 am

So why don't they want health insurance? I'm confused because it seems like a diet high in processed food-like products, animal fat and high fructose corn syrup and low on fruit and veggies would naturally lead to health issues.

Boredw/Gravitas June 1, 2011 at 11:05 am

They don't want health insurance because Freedomworks tells them they don't. And that one black guy who actually wants them to have it.

riverside68 June 1, 2011 at 11:11 am

hahaha ha ha ha
Liberal tries to think logically about morans
Ain't that just the darnest thing?

elviouslyqueer June 1, 2011 at 11:52 am

What part of "Nanny state run by a bunch of health-obsessed uppity Negroes" don't you understand?

Swampgas_Man June 1, 2011 at 6:14 pm

Very simply, they don't want health care FOR OTHER PEOPLE. Health care for themselves is cool, they just don't want some undeserving poors getting any.

Conservatives think Taco Bell is Mexican food.

JustPixelz June 1, 2011 at 11:02 am

They think Taco Bell is the central front in the anti-immigrant culture war.

When I was in NYC on May 21st for the End of the World, every block was a United Nations of restaurants — italian, greek, chinese, mexican, african. America isn't a melting pot or a salad bowl, it's an all you can eat buffet.

weejee June 1, 2011 at 11:10 am

It's not????

BaldarTFlagass June 1, 2011 at 11:17 am

Well, it's Mexican food for the white people that think Olive Garden and Pizza Hut are Italian.

SorosBot June 1, 2011 at 11:34 am

Taco Bell is neither Mexican, nor food. (I still like it though).

Chillwaver June 1, 2011 at 11:36 am

To be fair, though, it is MADE by Messicans.

OneDollarJuana June 1, 2011 at 11:47 am

All food in the U.S. seems to be made by Mexicans any more. And they're dang good at it, too.

Swampgas_Man June 1, 2011 at 6:17 pm

After moving here to the East Coast, one thing I'd come to miss was Mexican food. Here, it's all made by Italian and Puerto Rican kids. And never eat gyros at a place that pronounces them w/ a hard G.

CrankyLttlCamperette June 1, 2011 at 10:49 am

Have you ever been to a grocery store in Red State Amurrica? No Free Range Arugula, ANYWHERE!

Supply follows demand (or is it demand follows supply? I was an English Major).

BlueMonkeh June 1, 2011 at 10:53 am

Yeah…i've never had to fight for the last bag of frozen edamame at the local Super Target (only place other than Whole Foods with that socialist communist fascist obammer food).

Fellow English major – respect!

elviouslyqueer June 1, 2011 at 10:56 am

Oh, I figured out real quick where all the ethnic/esoteric/healthy items are in my local grocery. The clearance rack. Always.

BlueMonkeh June 1, 2011 at 10:49 am

Good. This survey needs moar publiciteez. No self-respecting conservatard would be caught dead eating sissy librul fud. Hence, more gud fud for me and more arteriosclerosis for them.

DangerHelvetica June 1, 2011 at 10:50 am

I have a tendency to eat lousy corn syrup derivatives, mostly out of laziness and pooritude. I could tell you which Hot Pocket varieties won't cause (immediate) illness. Hurray for bringing the average down!

Boredw/Gravitas June 1, 2011 at 11:06 am

Breakfast Hot Pockets — because you want to call in sick today!

comrad_darkness June 1, 2011 at 11:29 am

Dude, find an ethnic grocery and buy bulk beans and rice and cabbage. Cheaper than processed and WAY better for you.

OneDollarJuana June 1, 2011 at 11:50 am

But you have to take the time to cook it. That's the main reason Americans are so fat. It's just so easy and instantly satisfying to get a Fatburger. With beans you gotta cook 'em for hours and hours and pay attention and learn how to actually cook. Americans have become so lazy they can't be bothered. Besides, there is a "Family Guy" marathon on the big screen.

HistoriCat June 1, 2011 at 11:52 am

But you can always flip over to the Food Network in the delusion that you'll one day really cook.

DangerHelvetica June 1, 2011 at 11:53 am

I exaggerate (a bit) for comedy purposes, as I've been making an effort to eat better and learn how to cook in the last few months. I live in a pretty whitebread area though, making it hard to find ethnic foods in places other than a single small section in the supermarket.

Schmannnity June 1, 2011 at 10:51 am

baconzgood June 1, 2011 at 10:52 am

I'm a Liberal and I eat shit. Sure I don't eat microwave box stuff, but there is plenty of unhealthy ethnic food. Mmmmm Kik ar Fars Gllllllllaaaagggghhhh…

JustPixelz June 1, 2011 at 11:03 am

All with bacon, I assume.

baconzgood June 1, 2011 at 11:06 am

When I was in France visiting an expatriate friend he translated the menu for me. It was stuff like "Goose liver fried in lard and pig fat with a heavy cream-butter sauce and basil." Ohhhhh but it was goood.

BaldarTFlagass June 1, 2011 at 11:04 am

I'll bet you eat a lot of bacon. Not sure how I know this, but…

GOPCrusher June 1, 2011 at 4:25 pm

Bacon is meat candy.

petehammer June 1, 2011 at 11:07 am

Same. Except that I occasionally eat microwave box stuff. I don't eat terribly. but I'm also not hoarding grass-fed beef.

SorosBot June 1, 2011 at 11:37 am

I eat a lot of microwave box stuff too, along with takeout food (though mostly from local, non-chain places). I hate cooking and would rather do something productive or enjoyable with the time I'd waste over the stove.

Lascauxcaveman June 1, 2011 at 12:56 pm

Heh, I'm just the opposite. I dawdle around in the kitchen, making bread or pies, or putting the steaks in the marinade rather than do the less pleasant chores like laundry, cleaning the bathroom, going out an earning a living.

natoslug June 1, 2011 at 12:57 pm

I usually come off as elitist about beef not because I am actually elitist, but because I think it is pretty damned unflavourful on its own. I'd much rather have a lamburger, because it has flavour. Grass-fed or corn-fed, beef is the tofu of the flesh world to me: A flavourless base that can almost always be replaced by something much more delicious.

HurricaneAli June 1, 2011 at 11:10 am

HurricaneAli June 1, 2011 at 11:28 am

Is that like city chicken?

Cicada June 1, 2011 at 11:12 am

I think it's funny that ethnic food is considered upscale. When I was poor I ate ethnic food a lot because it was cheap, filling, and tasty. It helped that I lived in an area with tons of cheap Indian and Thai restaurants. My favorite place had a $5.50 Pad Thai that would feed you for lunch and dinner.

And mmmm…samosas. Little fried pockets of heaven.

comrad_darkness June 1, 2011 at 11:31 am

There is something to this. Take that leftover liberal pumpkin risotto, rolled into balls, stuffed with a chunk of ham, breaded and deep fried. Now that's ethnic.

I call bullshit on Hunch's survey because nowhere was there mention of tofu, at all. Why does Hunch hate tofu?

Oblios_Cap June 1, 2011 at 11:03 am

Because it sorta sucks.

elviouslyqueer June 1, 2011 at 11:27 am

Well, yea. But other than that.

OneDollarJuana June 1, 2011 at 10:59 am

Hey! Quit picking on the Reds! Sure those conservatives are stuffing their faces and themselves into early and oversized, graves. But who's to say that they are not happy? I just saw a wonderful National Geographic lecture whose topics included the Dinka of the Sudan. These people spend the entirety of their lives tending their cattle and subsist almost entirely on the milk from those cattle. They are generally naked, covered in ashes, and wash their heads with cattle urine. Of course, they don't live as long as people in the industrialized nations, but absent the terrible conflicts in the Sudan, are mostly very, very happy with their lives.

Who knows? Maybe the conservatives are much happier than the liberals, getting to eat whatever they want, as much as they want, and never feel guilty when sitting down for even a second. Sure, they don't live as long as liberals, but they might just be happier.

petehammer June 1, 2011 at 11:08 am

Also, they wash their heads with cattle urine.

Biel_ze_Bubba June 1, 2011 at 2:46 pm

If there's no cattle handy, I'll be happy to piss on their heads. Happiness all around.

AutomaticPilot June 1, 2011 at 11:54 am

Enter that recent study that says Conservs are more fearful than Libs. So no, I would guess they are not happier. They are sitting in their mother's basement, spreading conspiracy theories (in ALL CAPS) on the interwebs, while stuffing their feelings with deep-fried lard and a Big Gulp.

zhubajie June 1, 2011 at 7:15 pm

You can tell they are not happy by the amount of complaining they do.

tessiee June 2, 2011 at 11:51 pm

"Who knows? Maybe the conservatives are much happier than the liberals"

Well, sure — because we don't get to pour cow urine on their heads.

So, according to this stupid survey, we really need to put conservatards on food stamps?

deanbooth June 1, 2011 at 11:06 am

A food stamp stimulus is important when dinner is a shovel-ready project.

Arken June 1, 2011 at 11:01 am

Yeah? Well I love Circus Peanuts. Those marshmallowy, banana-ish flavored 99 cent candies they sell at gas stations and I'm so left-wing I'm a socialist, so go figure.

Doktor Zoom June 1, 2011 at 11:05 am

Look, I'm as tolerant as the next guy, but there are some things that you just don't say in polite society.

Good day to you, sir.

seppdecker June 1, 2011 at 11:01 am

The schism is even more glaring when it comes to beer. I still get strange looks when I bring some German beer to family gatherings to avoid having to drink Bud Light.

Terry June 1, 2011 at 11:07 am

My elderly liberal father must be an outlier. Unless we're someplace fancy, he usually orders Miller Lite. Otherwise, he has awesome taste.

Arken June 1, 2011 at 11:20 am

This is the secret to the popularity of lite beers: A lot of people don't actually like bitter drinks like beer and coffee, but feel that they are 'supposed' to like having a beer or drinking coffee, so they have to find a way to make it tolerable.

Lite beers have barely any flavor, and the popularity of flavored creamers, not to mention lattes in general, speaks to that.

OneDollarJuana June 1, 2011 at 11:55 am

I think you're correct. Hence the frequent offerings of beer replacements: wine coolers, Zima, "hard" lemonade, cider, "hard" iced tea, etc.

Another thing about lite beer. One can drink a flat of it without falling down.

comrad_darkness June 1, 2011 at 11:33 am

Bud Light is the anti-Christ.

HistoriCat June 1, 2011 at 11:57 am

Point of order! Bud Light is not actually beer. Although I may have pissed out some Bud Light after drinking beer.

Biel_ze_Bubba June 1, 2011 at 2:52 pm

German beers, at least, are semi-fascist and thus acceptable among teatards. Sam Adams is more of a Librul Commie beer, coming from that foreign land of Massachusetts.

Swampgas_Man June 1, 2011 at 6:21 pm

At least I live in the land of Yuengling black&tan.

Perhaps there's a causal connection. Eating crappy food kills brain cells. Dead brain cells create conservatives.

Redhead June 1, 2011 at 12:09 pm

I thought mental illness created conservatives. Then again, eating shitty beef can cause mad cow disease, so…

Swampgas_Man June 1, 2011 at 6:22 pm

I can kill just as many brain cells w/ Pinot Noir, and I'm a liberal.

Oblios_Cap June 1, 2011 at 11:03 am

Maybe the plan has been to feed the TeaTards shit and then let them deny themselves health care in a bid to drive them to a quick extinction. Great job, Barry!

If Anusburger™ chains accepted foodstamps those idiots wouldn't be trying to get rid of them.

baconzgood June 1, 2011 at 11:03 am

Seriously people……ON A FUCKING STICK!!!! NO MATTER HOW FOUL SOMTHING IS IT IS BETTER ON A STICK!!!! When you go to a fair on the fourth of July would you eat the cat on a stick shish kabob stuff if there wasn't a stick? NO WAY JOSE!!!

BaldarTFlagass June 1, 2011 at 11:16 am

Every time we went on liberty in the Philippines, I would swear to myself that I wasn't going to eat the barbecued monkey meat on a stick that the little kids came around the bar selling. But get a couple San Miguels in me, and I'd be buying a half-dozen of them stick meats. Don't know what the sauce was, but it was delicious.

GOPCrusher June 1, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Hell, drinking San Miguels was a dicey proposal at times.

DaRooster June 1, 2011 at 11:22 am

I use a stick with a whole through it for mah whiskies… damn good!

Redhead June 1, 2011 at 12:11 pm

Well here in the south, any food you buy at the fair is so fried you can't tell what it is, under the 34958739485739487534987345 pounds of batter and grease (and, usually, a stick). And I mean everything – meats, dough, fruit, candy bars, beer…

"Liberals eat ethnic food. "

Could be the opposite, too. "Ethnic" people tend to be liberals.

Oblios_Cap June 1, 2011 at 11:22 am

And sometimes liberals like to eat ethnics!

jus_wonderin June 1, 2011 at 11:09 am

I kid you not. I saw a huge-ass woman on a busy street turn lane Saturday on a hoverround. She was headed to the McDonald's. In her defense she had a tattered eco-friendly tote bag that she was using as a backpack.

OneDollarJuana June 1, 2011 at 11:51 am

Things are changing, though. On our neighborhood road cleanup a couple of weekends ago I dug deep into the bushes and came up with a styrofoam Big Mac box and a steel Pepsi can.

JoshuaNorton June 1, 2011 at 11:10 am

Conservatives don’t know what “foodie” means.

A "conservative" white-trash foodie is someone who scarfs down a fistfull of generic Walmart cheetos and hides the empty bag in the nearest Pampers display.

Deep frying things not meant to be deep fried and putting them on a stick, also, too.

riverside68 June 1, 2011 at 11:16 am

"hides the bag"

When you are done with something, don't you just drop it where you are standing at the time?

Most Congressional Republicans like ethnic foods, like Chinese food. I keep hearing them say they want "cream of sum yung gi" and "loe hung dong." And they like Anthony's Wieners. Both of them.

KeepFnThatChicken June 1, 2011 at 11:15 am

On the lighter side, conservatives consume a lot of bullshit, too.

Problem is, it's what shapes their public policy, because they like it.

GOPCrusher June 1, 2011 at 4:37 pm

You sir, have obviously never experienced the wonder which is the food court of the Iowa State Fair, which is large enough to handle six lanes of scooter traffic and will sell you any deep fried substance that will stay on a stick.

Callyson June 1, 2011 at 11:23 am

From the Hunch Blog:
60% of liberals (28% more often than conservatives) enjoy beer…Conservatives are 27% more likely to not like the taste.
So *that's* why I'm a liberal…

That may have something to do with the difference between Coors Lite and your local mirobrew.

mumbly_joe June 1, 2011 at 11:31 am

Well, mainly it helps 'splain why grifters like Xtine keep running for congress. I mean, using campaign funds to pay the bills may be nice in the short run, but if you want to save for the future, it's much better to graduate to the big-time and grift by insider-trading and lining your pocket through legislation.

The really, really, sad part is that until Watergate, Teapot Dome was the biggest political scandal in the 20th century, if not the whole of American history. In the 21st century? It's an average Tuesday.

Doktor Zoom June 1, 2011 at 11:34 am

In any case, this news suggests an entrepreneurial opportunity for all those poors that are getting kicked offa food stamps.

I notice that several of the choices made by conservatives are soft and/or squishy. Can there be a correlation between people who have lost their teeth due to poor hygene and/or meth use and conservatism?

Redhead June 1, 2011 at 12:24 pm

I've been told by good ol southern real murkins that fruits and veggies aren't REAL food numerous times. (Usually as I'm explaining how I can eat almost constantly and still be losing weight, because I eat produce, whole grains and tofu, and work out a couple days a week. They usually don't accept this and instead tell me that really I'm just never full because I don't eat "real food.")

So basically, conservative nutritional education equals conservative sex education, both in quality, amount of info taught and impact on students.

genxr June 1, 2011 at 1:05 pm

You don't eat meat? That's okay, have some fried chicken instead.

Baked scallops, fried fish, steamed clams, and lobster dipped in melted butter… how I miss Catholic Fridays in New England. I never quite figured out how this was supposed to constitute a sacrifice. Fortunately, generations of Yankees came and went, and not a one of them ever let the Vatican in on the joke.

That'll kill those fuckers fast. One way or another.
