Denver Appeases the Green Gods
The reduced oxygen in the Mile High City is taking it’s toll on Denver’s Mayor John Hickenlooper. It appears that the cheese has finally slid off his cracker judging from this latest attempt to appease the green gods.
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 John 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 fry? – uh, make that – bake
Talk about a place where all reason is tossed to the wind. If the people of Denver accept this type of government intrusion and madness, then they deserve the increased tyrannical control that is sure to follow.
