Pelosi’s New Capital Hill Menu Almost As Good As Club G’itmo’s!

Via Memeorandum (I’m not going to look at the other links first, in case someone plays the G’itmo card), from Politico

The processed cheese has been replaced with brie. The Jell-O has made way for raspberry kiwi tarts and mini-lemon blueberry trifles. Meatloaf has moved over for mahi mahi and buns have been shunted aside in favor of baguettes. 

A revolution is afoot at the deli counters, grills and salad bars of the U.S. House of Representatives. 

Newly ascendant Democrats may have hit roadblocks on Iraq and fiscal issues, but they have revamped congressional menus, replacing fatty, pre-made foods with healthier, gourmet alternatives. The once dreary congressional cafeterias now abound with haute cuisine.

Pay attention, now, this stuff might be seriously important to Little Miss Nancy!

Grumbling aside, the menu choices now available present a whole new world of congressional culinary adventures.

There is 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.

Actually, it sounds pretty good. More like something one would get for dinner or lunch on a day off, but, good. Kinda reinforces the opinion that Democrats are elitists, eh? Of course, they still aren’t eating as well as the vacationers at Club G’itmo. The Dem controlled Congress is getting about as much done as the vacationers, too.

    Just one more of the many reasons why the Democrats carry a 10% higher approval rating than the Republicans

    Adm Mullen Chairman of the Joint Chiefs favors closing Gitmo as soon as possible http://www.usatoday.com/printedition/news/20080114/a_gitmo14.art.htm
    It is getting harder and harder to find anyone who continues to support the agenda of the ultra right
