Heinz 57 And "Freedom"-Fried Potatoes

Can we all agree that that this is just silly and childish? Freedom toast! That'll really show those frogs!

I wonder if their next move is to rename "French dressing." I seem to remember Edmund telling me that they didn't actually use that stuff on salads in France anyway.

I wonder if they'll name the dressing after Ronald Reagan the way they're naming everything else after him. And "Ronald Reagan Salad Dressing" has a lower irony factor than renaming National Airport (Reagan not only fired all the air traffic controllers, he spent his entire political career crusading for state and local control rather than Congressional micro-management) after him.

Doesn't Congress have better things to do than this? (Not that I have any say at all over this, being a resident of the Colony...er...District of Columbia.)

While we're on the subject...the term "Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys" was funny the first 12,500 times I heard it. And then it got a little old. At this point, it belongs on the "overused lines" shelf, next to any line about those "Do Not Remove Under Penalty of Law" tags on mattresses.
