You want fries with that crow?

Walter Jones, of 'Freedom fries' coinage, changes his tune:

A prominent lawmaker who prompted cafeterias in the US Congress to change the name of their french fries to "freedom fries" in anger over France's opposition to the Iraq war, has now turned against the conflict and wants a firm schedule on the withdrawal of US troops.

Representative Walter Jones, a North Carolina Republican, has written more than 1,300 letters of condolence to the families of soldiers killed in Iraq and will introduce legislation this week calling for a firm timetable on the withdrawal of US troops, ABC's "This Week" said Sunday.


He added: "When I look at the number of men and women who have been killed -- it's almost 1,700 now, in addition to close to 12,000 have been severely wounded -- and I just feel that the reason of going in for weapons of mass destruction, the ability of the Iraqis to make a nuclear weapon, that's all been proven that it was never there."

The really sad thing, Walter, is that most people knew at the time that George Bush and his cabal were lying, and they said so.

If you're known by the company you keep, you're judged by the people you choose to put your trust in. While I'm glad your gullibility has its limits, I wish you'd found them earlier.
