Be an idiot first, ask questions later

Congressman Walter Jones (R-NC) was the genius behind having french fries renamed "freedom fries" in Capitol cafeterias back in those days in 2003 when anyone who questioned our idiot president was ridiculed. Over two years later, and too late, he has finally figured out that he was lied to:
Although he voted for the war, he has since become one of its most vociferous opponents on Capitol Hill, where the hallway outside his office is lined with photographs of the "faces of the fallen".

"If we were given misinformation intentionally by people in this administration, to commit the authority to send boys, and in some instances girls, to go into Iraq, that is wrong," he told the newspaper. "Congress must be told the truth."
Don't stop there, "Frenchy" Jones. The word is "impeach." Call it "freedompeach" if you want. Just do it.

Actually, we shouldn't be too harsh on Jones. His meaningless grandstanding about "freedom fries" was basically that--meaningless. He was one of only four Republicans to vote for Rep. Lynne Woolsey's amendment to the latest defense boondoggle bill calling for Bush to submit a plan for US troop withdrawal from Iraq. My own rep, John Dingell, voted against it. What the Cheney is that about???
