San Fran Nan brings gourmet touch to Congress (Nancy Pelosi, comrades grab baguettes on way to barricades)
While John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama tour the countryside telling prospective voters just how bad things are, some people in Capitol City are living it up: those lucky few who get to dine at the U.S. House of Representatives' own eating establishments. Thanks to Nancy Pelosi's "Greening the Capitol" plan (link), plucky leftwingers can fight for peace and freedom while dining on such staples as:
Peruvian Purple Potatoes, apple wood bacon, champagne vinaigrette, and shallots... vine ripe tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil... Sustainable Seafood dish: pan seared Chesapeake Rock Fish, sweet potato fennel hash, and yellow pepper relish [a steal at $6.95!]... fruit and cheese side dish with two small wedges of brie and cheddar, six grapes, two saltines and one strawberry [just $4.95!]... pan-roasted Chesapeake rockfish with sweet potato fennel hash and yellow pepper relish. Pears with Stilton cheese and watercress. Cumin-scented leg of lamb with almond couscous. There are vegetables with funny names, like bok choy, arugula and jicama. There are baked goods with Italian names, like biscotti, focaccia and frittati.
No one ever said the revolution didn't have to be scrumptious.
In 2004, I highlighted what John Kerry and John Edwards pretended to eat at a Wendy's in Newburgh, New York. I was a bit confused why Tuh-ray-zuh's plate was so empty, until I figured it out. Then, I made fun of them even more. And, if the GOP had any sense they'd try the same tack with San Fran Nan's Grand Plan.
