In the end, this is what the Republican Party comes down to: fried chicken.

Romney and Huckabee Fight It Out Over...FRIED CHICKEN?
Romney stopped in at a KFC over the weekend.

PENSACOLA, Florida (CNN) – Mitt Romney's failure to eat fried chicken with the skin on is nothing short of blasphemy here in the South, according to GOP rival Mike Huckabee.

Romney, of Massachusetts, dug into a piece fried chicken at KFC while campaigning in Lutz, Florida on Saturday, but not before peeling off what most would consider the best part — the crispy skin.

Admittedly, KFC's chicken doesn't exactly stack up against the delectable kind that comes out of deep fryers in kitchens around the South, and Romney said he was looking for the healthiest option available to him for lunch.

Huckabee, looking ahead to a flotilla of southern states up for grabs on Super Tuesday, was told about the move by a reporter here in the Florida panhandle.

"I can tell you this," he said, "any Southerner knows if you don’t eat the skin don’t bother calling it fried chicken."

"So that's good. I'm glad that he did that, because that means I'm going to win Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma … all these great Southern states that understand the best part of fried chicken is the skin, if you're going to eat it that way."

Huckabee admitted that he hasn't eaten fried chicken in a while because of his weight loss program, preferring it broiled or baked instead.

And speaking of possible gaffes, a good Southerner might also dispute one of Huckabee's claims: since when is Oklahoma "a great southern state"?

It wouldn't be as funny if it came from The Onion.

It's from CNN.

It's campaign news, for the GOP.

Claude Perkins: You'll never guess what I had for dinner tonight, so I'm just going to tell you.

Gaetano Proclo: I beg your pardon?

Claude Perkins: A nice ground-pork meatloaf with mozzarella, mashed potatoes covered with gobs of gravy, carrots floating in butter and chunks of avocado with roquefort dressing. Couldn't you just die?

Gaetano Proclo: I don't know what I could just.

Claude Perkins: And then for dessert German choclate cake with two scoops of mocha walnut ice cream.

I guess that since the actual Colonel is long since dead, it's no longer a political act to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken- but for many years Democratic politicians made sure to do a photo Op with the staunchly Democratic Colonel Sanders. People really did care about that sort of thing.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.
