Looks like Vaccarella had a Dutch oven installed in his trailer


Turns out that belonging to the same authoritarian party isn't all that Republican NOLA ringer Rockey Vaccarella and Bushh have in common.

(Via Attytood (via The Amazing Froomkin)):

"Turns out that the earthy Vaccarella -- a highly successful businessman in the fast-food industry -- is indeed a Republican pol...

And, as we know, Bushh likes "earthy":

he’s still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can’t get enough of fart jokes.

Touching, isn't it? Bushhh and Vacarella have similar manly interests, share a common bond--"earthy humor." Translation:

Fart jokes!

NOTE Why is this, erm, distasteful subject in fact important? See this incredibly erudite post from Brad DeLong:

p. 200: A general theory elaborated by Joseph Grady in 1996 suggests that the metaphor system is grounded in the body in terms of "primary metaphors." In each primary metaphor, such as affetion is warmth, an experience brings together a subjective judgment... and a sensory-motor occurrence.... For this metaphor, such an experience might be cuddling up to a parent. Such correlations often show up in language.... Affection is warmth.... Intimacy is closeness.... Important is big..... Happy is up.... Bad is stinky.... More is up.... Help is support.... These primary metaphors allow one to express a private internal (subjective) experience in terms of a publily available event; this is one crucial feature of metaphorical language.... Largely universal, primary metaphors provide the grounding for much of the metaphor system.... From our neural perspetive, primary metaphors can be seen as a normal consequence of associative learning... neurons that fire together, wire together....

We're saying, metaphorically, literally, in every possible way, that Bush is stinkin' up the joint. And that's bad, that Bush is doing that.

NOTE Dutch oven. Sigh.
