Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

Freedom Fries

I just thought of this but, here's some "food for thought".
If the dems retake congress this year, will they go back to "french fries" in the Rayburn cafeteria, or will they keep them "freedom fries".
After all, it was changed by a vote of Congress; so the dems could change it if they do desired.
Just wondering what everyone thought.

    It was not changed by a vote of Congress -- no such vote is required for something so trivial. Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH) is Chairman of the Committee on House Administration and, in that capacity, he simply declared that french fries and french toast were rechristened "freedom toast." (Along with Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC.) In May of last year, Jones came to realize that the war was without cause, and publicly apologized for the absurdity of renaming fries and toast. That was followed by Rep. Ney's similar decision when he, last month, reverted the names to their proper appellations.

    I work on the Hill. The stupid "Freedom Fries" thing is LONG gone. Even the GOP rubber stamp robots could no longer stomach that howler. It's just plain French Fries. You should get out of Blacksburg more often.

    Maybe Ney can convince the Warden to rename them "Freedom Fries" when he gets to prison
