It's rare that I will call out a comment for special recognition, but as I sit here at Rue De La Course, my heart is filled with benevolence for each and every one of you out in Codland, and it's just too good to miss. In response to the original Paula Deen Rodeo, one of her retainers weighed in:
Paula Deen is a true treasure....it's seems that I hear a bit of jealously. This self-made woman is nothing but a kind, sweet and lovable. I occasionally work as part of her security detail when she's on the road. If you have even been around her, you would know she's nothing but kind to all who she meets, absolutely love children and spend her time and money for worthy charitable organizations. The hoopla over her representing a certain food company and the strife that company might be going through has nothing to do with her as a decent human being. Always remember what Solomon spoke of in Proverbs about wisdom and folly. We are all only a breath away from the next successful idea and this time it's Paula's turn....so don't be hating, because if any of you had a chance to be in the same position...to show YOUR particular talent, don't tell me that you would'nt. We should be concentrating on health care, education, spending time with our families and in church, not bashing Paula.
There's so much to love here , but my favorite is the lack of correlation between shilling for a demonstrably loathsome corporation, and Paula's own human decency. Similarly, I guess, it would be a mistake to judge Adnan Kashoggi on the basis of that arms dealing thing. As a theological question for the weekend, what exploitative meatpacking concern would Jesus shill for?
