Yum: Deep-Fried Butter, Wrapped In Straw Poll

Abby Zimet

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.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
