Wisdom, it is said, is something we receive just after we really needed it most. I bring this up because it seems the Repugnican dolt who pushed for French fries to be renamed freedom fries in the US Capitol cafeteria has had a change of heart about that whole invading-Iraq-on-a-political-whim thing.

So, French fries were petulantly renamed "freedom fries" when France - still an independent, sovereign nation of free people last time I checked - did not endorse Dubya's hamfisted and ill-advised attempt to take part in the Great Game. Should we now be clamoring to rename North Carolina as North Freedonia? Or maybe NC's twin cities should now become the tripartite of Raleigh-Durham-Baghdad? How about Research Sunni Triangle Park?
