As unprofessional as it might seem for a presidential candidate to admit this sort of thing, I feel strongly that I must say that I have grown quite fond of the bewitching Rachel Ray. I find that she and I speak on the same level, enjoy the same intellectual pastimes, and are deeply and spiritually attuned on certain scholarly subjects. It was not the delightful corn de-stringing video
] that a friend sent me that caught my attention, but Ms. Ray's charming and intellectual commentary about various eating establishments that she graced us with in this delightful video.
I was immediately captivated her expressive articulation, and spellbound by her dramatic command of the language. Clearly this is a genuinely cerebral woman that understands the very depths of my inner soul!
I must admit that previously I have been remiss in the Rachel Ray Department. I did an entire post about the growing American Dunkin' Donuts/keffiyeh crisis
and did not even mention her name, even though she was the immediate focus of Michelle Malkin's ridiculous vitriolic.
I have corrected this grievious error on my part by watching Ms. Ray's television program this morning. On the program she had the actors from the film Watchmen as guests, then she did makeover for two women to make them look older
, and then came the the important part of the program - she prepared food! That's what I call television.
Now, I know that Ms. Ray has many critics
that are envious of her many accomplishments and intellectual prowess. To them I say, Fiddlesticks! clearly Ms. Ray is a misunderstood visionary for a new age, with the ability to set fire to the imagination of people around the world. And she cooks!
Ms. Jill Hunter Pellettieri of Slate Magazine wrote a most worthy article on the subject, "Rachael Ray: Why food snobs should quit picking on her."
But perhaps Ms. Ray says it best in her own words:
