Be Jealous: My Christmas Menu


In the run-up to Christmas, my wife declared the menu. In the days before, we would have dill pickle soup. On Christmas, we would have ham steaks, polenta, and broccoli.

I had fun with the polenta and used a cookie cutter I have to cut the pieces into the shape of teddy bears.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer Defense Secretary Ash Carter for stopping the government’s efforts to get re-enlistment bonus money back from soldiers fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.  They also sigh as the latest WikiLeaks revelations show the Clinton Foundation also worked to line Bill’s pockets with huge speaking fees.  And they unload on Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber for suggesting the only thing needed to improve Obamacare is to jack up the penalties on people who don’t buy insurance.
