Breitbart: Let the vetting begin!

I really don’t know what they hope to accomplish with this post election vetting.  It’s kinda like the movies about how JFK liked the ladies and they liked him.  Who cares now?


However, the video has been selectively edited–either by the Boston television station or by Buzzfeed itself. Over the course of the day, Breitbart.com will be releasing additional footage that has been hidden by Obama’s allies in the mainstream media and academia.

Breitbart.com Editor-in-Chief Joel Pollak and Editor-at-Large Ben Shapiro will appear on The Sean Hannity Show to discuss the tape. The full tape will be released tonight on Fox News’ Hannity.

(CNN) — Mitt Romney has caught the attention of Latinos with campaign ads that highlight the significance of Sonia Sotomayor’s appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court — but it may not be the kind of attention he wants.

In a pro-Romney radio ad released this week in Ohio, conservative Jay Sekulow says that Rick Santorum’s 1998 vote to confirm Sonia Sotomayor to the federal circuit court “put her on a path to the Supreme Court.”

Exercise does a lot of good things — it burns calories, helps keep your weight in check and lowers your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Now add one more thing to the list: physical activity can change your DNA.

Unlike the aberrations and genetic mutations caused by carcinogens and toxins, exercise-induced alterations to DNA are more like tune-ups, helping muscles to work better and more efficiently. What’s more, these changes occur even after a single 20-minute workout.

Juleen Zierath, a professor of physiology at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, reports with her colleagues in the journal Cell Metabolism about these very early changes that muscle cells undergo the first time you get off the couch and into the gym. The researchers worked with a group of 14 young men and women who were relatively sedentary, and asked them to work out on an exercise bike that measured their maximum…

Paul Bocuse: Have you got a half a million for dinner to spare?

http://www.alifewortheating.com/france/paul-bocuse I have spent time in Paris but did not eat at any french restaurants because I was vegan at the time and finding something like that in Paris was not possible then.  I knew the name Bocuse and thought I would google it and see what it costs to buy a dinner package for two.  It started at about 500,000 and went up to a cool million for the deluxe dinner package.  Yes, a million dollars to eat dinner at Bocuse.  I wonder if the Romneys ever ate there.

What came next was the highlight of the meal, rouget barbet en écailles de pommes de terre croustillantes, a thin filet of red mullet covered in potato scales.  This course reminded me that butter does not equal bad.  Butter gets a bad rap for its high cholesterol, saturated fats, and ubiquitous presence in French food.  I would almost say that I’ve developed a sensitivity to butter from having lived in the US, a direct result of movements like California cuisine that de-emphasize butter usage and promote heart-healthy eating.  But what Bocuse showed me was that butter, when used properly, is one of the best ways to strengthen and support a fish’s  natural flavor.  Bocuse uses butter not for the sake of it, not because it’s popular in French food, and not because he’s a rebel.  Rather he uses it deliberately because, quite simply, it tastes the best.  Here it’s presence was felt in both the crispy potato “scales” and the sauces pooling below the fish.  The moist filet protected by its two skins stayed interesting with each bite until the very end, particularly because I could choose different combinations from the olive-leaf shaped combination of sauces below.  This was delicious.

Big Question: Are we looking at a Romney-Santorum ticket?

After Mitt‘s win last night in super Tuesday, winning five of ten states and Rick winning 3 states. Both fought over the stakes in Ohio.  So the new question, the big question is whether the two will ticket-up with Romney (I mean Rmoney) on top and Santorum on the bottom of the ticket?

It could be in the works after Santorum’s stellar southern showing.  Romney will need someone who can pull in the south.  That’s why it’s a wonder Obama won with Mr. White Guy from the north Joe Biden.  I think Obama could have a problem with the south except that he seems to have the Hispanic vote wrapped up.

Republican challenge will be the Hispanic vote in this country.  There are black and white Hispanics and both lean toward Obama and the dems.
