From a list the Republican senator gave to US magazine:

18. I am responsible for cooking the Thanksgiving Day turkey. I have a special recipe that involves placing fresh herbs under the skin, covering the turkey in cheesecloth, and basting it in Madeira wine and butter. It’s a labor of love.

21. A rare hobby of mine: composting! Because of my composting, I guess I qualify as a “crunchy-con.”

23. My favorite book is The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

You too can be a crunchy conservative. Find out how here.
