I have little to say about the Paula Dean Blubbergate situation. After all, who doesn’t love a deep-fried butter and bacon sandwich and a with a tiramisu-milkshake-made-with-3-scoops-of-fried-ice-cream chaser? What is annoying is her phony admonition on The Today Show when she said to Al “Friend of the Fried” Roker, “I’ve always encouraged moderation. People see me cooking all these wonderful, Southern, fattening recipes … it’s for entertainment. People have to be responsible.” Really Paula? You said that on your show? Or are you just a big, fat liar? The word moderation has not left your lips since you were told to exercise.
