"The patriot's dream is as old as the sky
It lives in the lust of a cold callous lie
Let's drink to the men who got caught by the chill
Of the patriotic fever and the cold steel that kills." - Gordon Lightfoot, "Patriot's Dream"
Below, I refer to Representative Walter Jones as a "guy who is so totally right-wing and loonie that he coined the term 'freedom fries.'"
Well, it turns out that Walter Jones thinks one of the dumbest things he ever did was coin the term freedom fries. He says he wishes it never happened.
The man was just caught by the chill of the patriotic fever and the cold steel that kills.
Happens to the best of us.
