From Morning Joe:
Adam Richman wasn’t the only person talking about food this morning on the show.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus dropped by to talk about Joe Biden’s “chains” comments and Paul Ryan as the VP choice, but he also got himself into a quick discussion about cheese.

Someone bought a hunk of the PHENOMENAL Wisconsin-made Bleu Mont Bandaged Cheddar from Murray’s (holler!) and Priebus brought it on Morning Joe where it was passed around like a peace pipe. Mediaite says he used the cheddar to try to lure Arianna Huffington back to the GOP, but “the talk very quickly turned back to the cheese,” as it often does when good cheese is being shared.
The more I learn what a crazy mofo Willi Lehner is, the more I love him. His cheeses are bomb. His bandaged cheddar is my #1 favorite of the US cloth-bounds.
We currently have Bleu Mont’s Alpine Renegade in our cases. This cheese is straight up nuts and I love it. I’ve heard it described as peanut butter and sour cream and onion chips, bananas and strawberry jam, and fruit salad with champagne vinaigrette. (You just have to try it.) Mad props for this cheesemaker.
