American Sauce: Political sincerity test

(CNN) – Some 2012 candidates give out pies. Others label their speech location "the best place in the country". All of them eat corn dogs and insist they're not regular politicians. The cheese is getting thick in the presidential campaign.

So this week in our American Sauce podcast we ask, "Can we take any of these politicians seriously?" Listen here. It's a good show.

You can also listen to American Sauce on iTunes, Stitcher or subscribe to the podcast via RSS.

- CNN's Dan Szematowicz, Emma Lacey-Bordeaux and Steve Brusk contributed to this report.

    Perry is the devil himself. He is and has always been evil through and through.

    In the picture, is that Newt's wife or current mistress? I'd guess wife/former mistress since current mistresses don't cook.

    How many points for driving around the midwest in a big, black, Canadian-made bus?

    Governor "Good Hair" Perry is certainly going down on that corn dog. He looks pretty comfortable with that process. If he ever plans to kill the persistent rumors about his former relationships he'd be wise to select hamburgers, or maybe tacos...
