Ruh-Roh, Again

When the staunchest of the staunch start to turn their backs on you, you know you're a redneck in trouble.

The words "freedom fries" are still on the menu in the U.S. House cafeteria, and are likely to appear in the first line of Walter Jones' obituary, perhaps with their lesser-known cousin, freedom toast. ... Jones led the fight to rename fries and toast at the Capitol in protest of the French leading opposition to the war in Iraq.

Ask him about it now, and he lays his cheek in his left hand, a habit he repeats dozens of times a day when lost in thought or sadness. "I wish it had never happened," Jones said.

But Jones now says we went to war "with no justification." He has challenged the Bush administration, quizzing Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and other presidential advisers in public hearings.
When the "freedom fries" guy starts attacking you, you know you've done something wrong. I mean, come on. He's the "freedom fries" man.
