It looks like the national conversation on constitutionalism may finally be forced into the mainstream by The Liberty Amendments and the collective push of (real) conservative talk radio and certain FOX hosts to promote it, for good or ill.
That’s a positive turn of events, and something I’ve advocated for for years — most (in)famously, I suppose, in the Hot Air piece in which I argued we should actively and aggressively take power from the left by refusing to cede both the structural framework for debate and the language through which debate manifests itself, that eventually as it played out led to the whisper campaign and demonization that removed me from the ranks of the online conservative opinion leaders.
Old friends and allies turned on me. And a new generation of activists, brought in through the Breitbart platform, never even heard of me — mostly because advocacy from the bigger bloggers alongside whom I’d once fought and whom I’s often defended, ceased to be. Very ostentatiously, in fact.
So. Now what?
Answer: chicken salad recipes.
1. Basic Chicken Salad.
No need for fancy bread on this first one. Just toasted white with our without crust, slathered with mayo.
I like to use the breast meat from a rotisserie chicken, roughly chopped or pulled and diced. About 1 lb.
To that, I add a cup mayonnaise (light mayo is fine, but it ain’t as good. My advice? pop a low-dose baby aspirin and a Lipitor and go with the good shit. You only live once, and these past five years have been a real drag. Treat yourselves!)
2 diced celery hearts
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked black peppercorn
a pinch of savory
(optional) a handful of dried cranberries, or cran-raisins, for those of you who have that Thanksgiving craving year round.
Mix, dish onto toasted bread fresh from the toaster, cut into 2 triangles, and gobble down immediately, like you were Michael Moore in a tub of bacon, or Andrew Sullivan with his head jammed into a bag of cocks.
Yield: gustatory orgasm. No guarantees, but trust me.
There. I’ve done my duty for the day. FOR FREEDOM!
