Sarah Palin told supporters she was – “Excited to try some famous fried butter-on-a-stick at the Iowa State Fair… in honor of those who’d rather make us just eat our peas.”
Will Sarah Palin put caloric caution on the backburner to take a bite of fried butter? You betcha!
Hitting the road Friday to resume her One Nation bus tour, America’s best-known hockey mom will be stopping at the Iowa State Fair, where she says she’s going to chow down on some not-so-nutritious grub.
What’s on the menu? “I’m excited to try some of that famous fried butter-on-a-stick, fried cheesecake-on-a-stick, fried Twinkies, etc.,” Palin, 47, wrote in an email to her supporters.”
But Palin’s fair plans come with a side of sass. The former Republican vice presidential candidate says the fried food is a tongue-in-cheek jab at President Barack Obama, who made a reference to a certain green veggy when explaining the debt crisis at a White House press conference in July.
“It’s not going to get easier. It’s going to get harder,” he said. “So we might as well do it now: Pull off the Band-Aid, eat our peas. Now is the time to do it.”
In the email she joked, “I’ll enjoy [the fried food] in honor of those who’d rather make us just ‘eat our peas.’ ”
Sarah Palin will resume her bus tour in Iowa this weekend.
