I have never been a fan of Paua Deen's, but I do admire her since she has become the victim of a witch hunt. She could have said, "I dont' recall ever using that word" (ala Hillary Clinton), but she told the truth. I think you would be hard pressed to find many people in this country who could "honestly" say they have never used a racial slur in some context. I will also buy her cookbook if some brave publisher decides to publish it.
Why Capitol One keeps rude, foul mouthed, angry Alex Baldwin as a spokesperson is beyond me. I guess they've never heard that you're judged by the company you keep. By the way, I am still waiting for him to leave the country over the election results.
