Remember, when you are a Democrat, you leave your individual rights and preferences at the door. You are now a cog in the great machine. You will comply with approved party policy, or you will be branded a heretic and will become fodder for a Keith Olbermann rant.
Per the Party Grand Poobahs, the fun at the Democrat Convention will be supplemented with some proper dietary rules.
Warning to Southern delegates to the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver this August: it will be a no-fry zone.
As part of the effort to make the August 25-28 convention the greenest ever, the Democrats’ guidelines for food catering include one that strikes at the heart of Southern cuisine: no fried food.
No fried chicken. No fried catfish. No fried green tomatoes. No fried okra. No fried anything.
In promoting healthy eating habits, the Democratic guidelines say every meal should be nutritious and include “at least three of the following colors: red, green, yellow, purple/blue and white.”
“It’s the new patriotism,” says Denver Mayor
and Regional Enforcer of Dietary ComplianceJohn Hickenlooper, the driving force behind the greening of the Democratic convention.
However, if presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain starts gaining in the polls on Barack Obama, who will accept the Democratic nomination in Denver, the Democrats may find they’ve got bigger fish to fr? – uh, make that – bake.
Only Democrats would cheapen patriotism to equate it with a political party’s food rules. In other words, the less freedom you have to eat what you want, the more patriotic you are. Maybe eating a few more french fries would clear their fuzzy heads.
Michelle Malkin has more silliness. It seems Comrade Hickenlooper has also has issued Politburo orders that every bit of merchandise at the Denver convention must be organic and union-made.
