Weekend open thread: Thanksgiving leftovers edition

What’s on your mind, Bleeding Heartland readers? I hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday and will have time to relax this weekend.

For those who cooked a big meal yesterday, here are four ways to make soup from Thanksgiving leftovers (two using leftovers from roasting a turkey, one using sweet potatoes, and one using mashed potatoes). You can mix extra cranberry sauce with diced apples to make a pie.

    I know we’re all quite burnt out on the election horse races, but I hope that the Democrats do find credible people to run in South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee in case Graham, Chambliss and Alexander end up going down to defeat in a primary.  


    • agree 100 percent

      Chambliss will have a big target on his back for not ruling out tax rate increases, and Graham for being open to immigration reform. Kerrey fell short in Nebraska, but if a Democrat can win a Senate race in Indiana, the right Democrat would have a shot against a whackjob Republican in the states you mentioned.

      Chambliss ran one of the most despicable campaigns ever against Max Cleland, so I would be fine with wingnuts running him out in a primary.

    • speaking of Chambliss

      The editor of the RedState blog may challenge him in the primary.

      • never mind

        Erick Erickson backed off already.

        “Were I to run for the Senate, it would be a terribly nasty campaign,” Erickson wrote at Red State. “It’d actually be really awesome, but it’d be really nasty. I have a seven year old, a soon to be four year old, and a wife who does not like being anywhere near a stage. I’m not putting my family through that when the best outcome would mean a sizable cut in pay and being away from my kids and wife all the time huddled in a pit vipers often surrounded by too many who viewed me as a useful instrument to their own advancement.”

        Senators make $174,000 a year, but Erickson, in addition to his website and radio show, is a paid TV commentator for CNN.

        But some wingnut will take on this challenge.
