Bill Maher on red / blue states

| No Comments

Clueless - from Newsweek:

BILL MAHER MOCKS RED STATE VOTERS, SAYS RICH AND EDUCATED LIVE IN BLUE STATES
Bill Maher ridiculed red state voters in a segment about Amazon’s HQ2 locations, saying that the rich and educated people of America live in blue states.

“That’s why red state voters are so pissed off. They don’t hate us, they want to be us,” the Real Time host said on Friday night. “They want to go the party. It’s like we’re the British royal family and they’re Meghan Markle’s dad.”

Then why are people fleeing places like California, Illinois and New York? A bit more:

"We have chef Wolfgang Puck, they have Chef Boyardee"

Chef Ettore Boiardi was actually quite the big deal - from InfoGalactic:

Ettore followed his brother Paolo to the kitchen of the Plaza Hotel in New York City, working his way up to head chef. While working at The Greenbrier hotel in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, he directed the catering for the reception of President Woodrow Wilson's 1915 wedding. He also supervised the preparation of the homecoming meal served by Woodrow Wilson at the White House for 2,000 returning World War I soldiers. His entrepreneurial skill became polished and well known when he opened his first restaurant, Il Giardino d'Italia, whose name translates as "The Garden of Italy", at East 9th Street and Woodland Avenue in Cleveland, in 1926. The patrons of Il Giardino d'Italia frequently asked for samples and recipes of his spaghetti sauce, so he filled cleaned milk bottles.

Sure, his name has morphed into an example of mediocre processed food but he started out just as famous as Wolfgang Puck and his name has been a household presence for 93 years. Let's see if Mr. Puck has that kind of longevity...
