Pork is more than meat or a verb; it’s an aphrodisiac, according to Argentina’s President Cristina Fernandez.

I’ve just been told something I didn’t know; that eating pork improves your sex life … I’d say it’s a lot nicer to eat a bit of grilled pork than take Viagra

She said she recently ate pork and

things went very well that weekend, so it could well be true.

And speaking of wild weekends: Sarah Palin, who is appearing at the weirdly and highly dysfunctional Tea Party Convention in Nashville this weekend says

I thought long and hard about my participation in this weekend’s event. At the end of the day, my decision came down to this: It’s important to keep faith with people who put a little bit of their faith in you. Everyone attending this event is a soldier in the cause. Some of them will be driving hundreds of miles to Nashville. I made a commitment to them to be there, and I am going to honor it.

Tea Partiers have that pesky Big Government to blame for losing other their conservative pin-up girls. A House ethics committee review insisted last week that Reps. Michelle Bachmann of Minnesota and Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee withdraw from Tea Party Nation because the uses of any proceeds from the event haven’t been established. Oops.

Well, at least we know where Sarah’s proceeds are going:

I will not benefit financially from speaking at this event. My only goal is to support the grassroots activists who are fighting for responsible, limited government — and our Constitution. In that spirit, any compensation for my appearance will go right back to the cause.

Fox News clarifies what Palin will do with her speaking fee, which they reported as being $100,000 (other reports state $115,000).

She said she will donate the money to campaigns, candidates and issues. As a down payment for Palin’s fee, [organizer Judson] Phillips reportedly borrowed $50,000, much of it from a baseball card mogul. He missed his first payment.

I wonder if her PAC is on that list.  Ex-Gov GILF then heads to Searchlight, NV to kick off Tea Party Express III.
