    Freedom Fries are....

    does anyone else think this is beyond retarded? call me crazy, but this reminds me of sixth grade girls refusing to talk to each other because one friend voted for someone else to be class president. why are they wasting time on this crap?

    Do you really think the French give a damn if we change the names of American food with the French prefix? DUHH!!!!

    This took me a minute to get.

    Besides, FF should be called Begian fries as they are almost the national food, right in there with waffles, chicon/endives, chocolate, beer and pickled pears.

    Next will be an embargo on fine wines and chanel hand bags and "cordon bleu" chefs and chicken.

    Thank God that our elected representatives take the time to focus on the issues that truly matter. I'm proud that they have not stooped to pandering to those special interest groups who want a balanced budget, decent housing, good schools, corporate reform and other lefty pie-in-the-sky wishes. Instead they have done the peoples business by taking on issues that matter to our great nation...like unpatriotic side dishes.

    I heard a funny skit on the radio today where they were calling french toast "freedom bread waffles" and french dips "liberty dips".

    I don't even want to know what french kissing would be.

    Do people now contract Freedom Measels? Are the dogs in the K9 unit Freedom Shepards? Well, if we're trying for alliteration, i guess they'd be Great Measels.

    I would feel like an ass going into a restaurant and asking for a side order of freedom fries.

    What is even lamer is all these idiots who are dumping french wine out. You already bought the wine, the French have your money, do you really think that they care if you dump it in the streets?

    Congress must have forgetten that France helped us expell the British (Lafayette), design our new capital (L'Enfant) and gave us the Statue of Liberty.

    Oh! IT'S NOT A JOKE!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
    come ON!!!! That kind of attitude is so childish.... I can barely believe it!
    Freedom Fries, pfff who invented that? the short bus kids?

    Why don't people wise up a bit and worry about things that are worth worrying about...

    But, Mud Princess: What does the United States produce anymore that anyone wants? Cars? Please! Food? Its all genetically-altered, so? Wine? Chileans and Australians do it cheaper (and better). Software? Being quickly off-loaded to Indian software labs that can do it for 1/3 of the price.

    I guess we do manufacture mighty good weapon systems! Just give away a MOABs as teasers to corrupt third world dictators, and like crack cocaine, they are hooked. Plenty of jobs for all!

    Hey now, don't knock Mondovi, Sterling, or Coppolla(sp?)- it isn't that bad for US wine!
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    The whole thing is out right silly!
    A couple weeks ago at the DC wine fest there was no lack of "tasters" for French wines.
