Thursday feature: A turn to lighter fare
In our new Thursday feature, we ask prominent conservatives a nonpolitical question. Last week it was sports.
This week we ask: What's your favorite dessert?
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio): "Graeter's ice cream from Cincinnati." Any favorite flavor? "A bunch of 'em."
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell: "Chocolate ice cream."
Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) (House Budget Committee chairman): "Cheese." [me: he's from Wisconsin!]
Dana Perino (former White House press secretary, now a Republican consultant): "Key lime pie -- eaten rarely but savored when it's available."
Tucker Carlson (Daily Caller's editor in chief): "The Palm's carrot cake."
Peter Robinson (former Reagan speechwriter, Hoover Institute fellow, founder of Ricochet.com.): "Easy: baked Alaska. Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of a grapefruit half, then, working quickly, cover the ice cream with meringue and pop the whole concoction in a hot oven just long enough to brown the meringue tufts. Hot and cold, sweet and sour, crusted and soft. Lingual bliss."
Stephen Hayes (senior writer at the Weekly Standard): "Dogfish Head Midas Touch. (It's a beer; I don't eat dessert.)"
