Yum: Deep-Fried Butter, Wrapped In Straw Poll
Big doings in Iowa. No, not the upcoming GOP debate and straw poll, which can apparently be bought, like much else post-Citizens United, by the highest bidder. Bigger news is the offering to honor the 100th anniversary of the Iowa State Fair's life-size butter cow sculpture: fried butter on a stick - an entire stick of butter dipped in cinnamon honey batter, then deep-fried and sugar-glazed to make sure you don't survive it. There must be an analogy here.
