After I posted a diary questioning the timing of His Lameduckship’s 11th hour scare tactic bailout just before the election ,my friend, Mr. Murphy questioned my question as the root of a conspiracy theory.

No conspiracy was intended, and no conspiracy theory can possibly arise from this question, although I’m sure he’ll try to come up with one, which I can’t wait to hear, like it’s a plot by the guacamole manufacturers.

Question: What to whip up to satisfy our need for nourishing our bodies, while nibbling on something to quench our thirst for knowledge at our debate watching party?

Come to think of it, why aren’t all the newspaper food sections filled with debate recipes like they are for Thanksgiving or the Super Bowl?

I know. Combine them.

First, we’re thankful that kickoff for the debate is almost here; and secondly, by 10:30 p.m. on the East Coast and 7:30 out here in the wild west…it will “thankfully” be over.

Over, that is, except for all the post-debate armchair quarterbacking.

Our foodie tradition has been have sloppy Joe’s on election night, hotdogs for the Super Bowl, burgers and chips for the Oscars and nothing but munchies for New Year’s.

Yes, it’s no longer debatable, tonight will be well-served by a one-time tradition for the Biden/Palin debate by combining Thanksgiving with the Super Bowl.

For appetizers we can start with mushroom caps crammed with stuffing and yams on a skewer. The main course will be turkey dogs and chips. To make the meal well-balanced, olives, pickles and guacamole for veggies.

To be ultra patriotic, after all we’ll be watching the vice presidential debate, I’ll throw in Sara Lee’s Stars and Stripes Fourth of July cake.

It might not be the most nutritious meal I even whipped up, but it will be tasty and colorful.

As colorful as the post-debate analysis.
