Whose Pen is Mightier in the No-Spin Zone? Poll to Follow.

It’s Sunday and I guess there’s nothing else happening in the world other than the Super Bowl. Before our big party begins today, Big Guy’s having another sit down with Bill O’Reilly; which is rather odd as everyone knows how he feels about the Fox News Network.

Last fall BO accused Fox of lying about the increased costs of Obamacare, and just last week he complained that Fox and Rush have prevented him (the greatest orator of all time!) from getting his message out:

"... the issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I’m not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I’m somebody who is interested in solving problems (with my pen and my phone)"

To which Charles Krauthammer (Fox News contributor) responded that it was "rather unseemly" for the President of the formerly free world to be "so whiny."

"You've got NBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, CNN, of course MSNBC. You've got Hollywood that's sympathetic, you've got the television entertainment side. You've got the major newspapers, The Times, The Washington Post. It's what Lenin would call 'the commanding heights of the culture' are all on one side. All of them. And what do you have on the other side? Fox News and talk radio. And you've got a President of the United States complaining that that explains the failures of his administration,"

I hope Bill is polite to Big Guy because otherwise…well, BO does have that pen; and he knows how to use it:

So if he’s not real careful about how he handles Big Guy, Bill’s next book might not be a New York Times best seller.

So I’d say, watch your tails, Fox! The Redcoats are coming!

Although I have heard that some of  Fox are armed and dangerous.

So here’s my prediction: Both Bill and BO will be on their best behavior, which is to say boring. And the game? Does anyone really care who wins? We’ve already seen all the really good commercials and halftime won’t be anywhere near as good as the Grammies. So I say turn the game on in the background, listen for cheers at which point you can back up the DVR and watch the touchdowns.Meanwhile, enjoy your favorite healthy snacks and beverages while reading a good book.

Here’s a delicious dip I’m serving (h/t foodiecrush). You’ll never want another cheese dip again.


Cheesey Chorizo Caramelized Onion Dip Recipe


2 cups onion, chopped

3 tablespoons butter

1/8 teaspoon thyme

½ fresh chorizo sausage, about 6 ounces

8 ounce package of cream cheese

¼ cup mayonnaise

1/3 cup mozzarella cheese

¼ cup chopped chives or green onions

kosher salt


1. Remove chorizo from casing and cook in a medium skillet over medium high heat for about 10 minutes, chopping with spoon and stirring occasionally. Set aside. If greasy remove excess grease.

2. In another skillet, melt butter over medium heat and add onion. Add thyme, season with kosher salt and lower heat to medium-low and cook onion for about 20 minutes until onions become soft and caramelized.

3. In a medium sized bowl add cream cheese and mayonnaise and mix well until smooth. Add mozzarella cheese, caramelized onions, green onions and mix well. Gently fold in chorizo. Pour into a 2 cup baking dish.

4. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degree F for 12-15 minutes or until dip is golden and bubbly. Garnish with additional green onion and serve with baguette slices or tortilla chips.

And remember, he may be wily, butt the Fox will be looking out for you.
