Pork Shoulder Politics

The summer is winding down and fall is almost upon us.  In North Carolina, that means one thing: political barbecues.  Pork and politics have gone hand in hand in the Tar Heel state since its earliest days.  Charlotte, being the largest city in the state, may well have more political barbecues than anywhere else, from the relatively small scale like today’s 5th annual North Mecklenburg Republican Women’s BBQ event to the 84th annual Mallard Creek Barbecue that serves thousands of ordinary people (and countless extra-ordinary politicians) on the fourth Thursday in October.  Pork barrel politics indeed.
