congressional quarterly is reporting:

"The House cafeterias will be serving up 'freedom fries' and 'freedom toast' in a bid to scrub the French influence from the menu. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, and chairman of the House Administration Committee, today ordered cafeterias in the House office buildings to rename french fries and French toast to express the dissatisfaction with France's opposition to U.S. policy on Iraq. "This action today is a small but symbolic effort to show the strong displeasure of many on Capitol Hill with the actions of our so-called ally, France," Ney said in a statement. No word yet on what happens to French dressing."

as if the executive branch of the government is not embarrassing america enough.
