Freedom Fries: Don't stay crispy after 2 years?

In recent days, some prominent lawmakers – including Bush’s fellow Republicans – have spoken out about their dimming views of the conflict.

“After 1,700 deaths, over 12,000 wounded and $200 billion spent, we believe it is time to have this debate and this discussion on this resolution,” Rep. Walter Jones, R-North Carolina, said Thursday.

Jones, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, is the same congressman who pushed for the House cafeteria to change the name of French fries to “freedom fries” after France opposed the U.S. drive to war.

Granted, anyone who tries to rename french fries to Freedom Fries, is, obviously, simple in the head.

Then again:

We are faced with the most adament, gung-ho “kill em all for freedom!” guys turning around and saying “Whoa there youngbuck, have I been done lied to?”.

Given that this is the very base of the support for the war in the first place… it doesn’t sit well for the administration.

There’s the election of 2006 coming up. Polls are down, way down, for Ze War. So, the weasels do what weasels do…
