POLITICS AND NUTMEG
A small typo in the ingredients required for a cake recipe printed a Swedish food magazine caused a huge problem after poisoning people who made it.
Instead of calling for two pinches of nutmeg it said 20 nutmeg nuts were needed, Chief Editor Ulla Cocke told AFP. We didn't really think anyone would bake or eat this cake, since so much nutmeg would give it a horrible, bitter taste, and it is simply not that easy to get hold of that much nutmeg," she said. Plus, High doses of nutmeg can cause poisoning symptoms. The magazine has since been recalled after several people experienced symptoms of poisoning, including dizziness and headaches.
(O.K, so that´s the nutmeg part of the story with NUT being the operative word here ).
Now come the politicians part:
Last week, John McCain selected Sarah Palin who has been the governor of Alaska for a total of 2 years as his running mate. Her previous experience before that was ,mayor of a town of 9,000 people, a city council member, and a PTA President. With that resume it's very simple to understand the reasons why McCain picked Palin to be the VicePresident of the USA.
She's young( well, younger),
she's a woman, and
uh, uh, uh….that's pretty much it.
If Palin isn't a woman, she isn't chosen here, plain and simple
This is a desperate attempt to get some of the Hillary votes.
But keep in mind Hillary's voters didn't support Mrs. Clinton simply because she is a woman. She's an accomplished and experienced politician, former first lady, a senator, she is pro choice, and a supporter of gay rights. On all of these issues Mrs. Palin is the opposite."
So here is where I see the connection between politicians and nutmeg.
One could never imagine a citizen of the United States actually voting for Palin to govern America, given all her inexperience and inability to handle matters of crucial importance to the United States.
Yes, she is a woman and so is Hilary but she isn't Hilary and one cant be fooled by that. This just shows a desperate attempt from McCain´s camp to attract some voters.
However after reading the story of the idiots that almost died for adding 20 nutmegs nuts to a cake ( when the regular amount is an average of 1/8 of a teaspoon ), I believe there will be some people out there who will actually vote and buy all these stupidity of Palin being an appropriate vicepresident because , oh, well she is young .she is a Republican , she supports the NRA and she has an uterus.
Maybe they don't know this, but she will be the President of the USA, if McCain dies during his term. And then what?
Are being 44, and a having a set of ovaries what qualifies Mrs. Palin for this post? . That´s it ?
Will McCain voters be so gullible to believe that she is an equal match for Hilary ( or for another equally prepared candidate, for that matter) to govern one of the most powerful nations in the world?
The dumbasses who ate the cake got proper medical attention….. but Who will save America if it falls into the inexperienced hands of Mrs . Palin ?
Palin is fine in Alaska where she is at the moment, she should stay there for now. No need to bring more chaos into the current situation of America.
Don't be fooled by this recipe for disaster.
