Food finds.

Update: I never saw this before, but Sarah Palin’s turkey incident…

Last night at my local Asian grocery store… I found this.

And, believe it or not, my $0.99 investment paid off. It was sweet and peppery, with a tamarind and rotted-fish taste so wonderfully obtained from fish sauce. Cruel Wife was not sure how she liked it at first and then decided it was too tamarind-ey.

I loved it and took it to work to share. Out of ten people only one did not like it. Everyone looked askance until I assured them that it was not my usual kill-them-with-love-and-peppers MO.

There, Dave. I hope you sell many and prosper. Excellent work.

Normally, I really like what Krauthammer has to say.

But today, I could not agree less.

Charles Krauthammer responded on Special Report tonight saying, “The Ukrainians, and I think everybody, is shocked by the weakness of Obama’s statement. I find it rather staggering.”

Krauthammer thinks Obama’s statement is about “three levels removed” from actual action. He explained: Obama said “we will stand with the international community — meaning we are going to negotiate with a dozen other countries who will water down the statement — in affirming that there will be costs — meaning in making a statement not even imposing a cost, but in making a statement about imposing a cost — for any military intervention.”

“What he’s saying is we’re not really going to do anything and we’re telling the world,” Krauthammer said.

I was not shocked by weakness in anything Obama does. He sounds no less weak than he did regarding Syria. He is a gutless chump.
