Green with envy

“If you don’t eat your veggies, you hate America!” (See Sith-Monkey)

“One nation under arugula.” (See-Dubya)

“The huddled masses gathering for the coronation of King Obama will be secretly dying for some french fries.” (the Jammie Wearing Fool.)

Conservative bloggers had great fun last weekend with a Denver Post report that the caterers for the Democratic National Convention in Denver will not be allowed to serve 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,’” reported Scott Shepard of Cox News Service.

“It’s affirmative action for food!” said an incredulous See-Dubya.

And the most-mocked line in the Cox report was “‘It’s the new patriotism,’ says Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, the driving force behind the greening of the Democratic convention.”

“Maybe Obama ought to show up with … alfalfa sprouts on his lapel to show his patriotism,” said one commenter at Little Green Footballs.

No to ‘Just say no’

Warner Todd Huston at Stop the ACLU notes that owners of several Blogger sites critical of Sen. Barack Obama have had access to their sites cut.

“Google has terminated the access by blog owners to 7 such sites and the list may be growing. … It turns out that there is an interesting pattern where it concerns the blogs that Google’s Blogspot team have summarily locked down on their service. They all belong to the Just Say No Deal coalition, a group of blogs that are standing against the Obama campaign. It seems the largest portion of these blogs are Hillary-supporting blogs, too,” Mr. Huston wrote.

He later updated the post by suggesting that perhaps “it isn’t google, but Obamaniacs taking advantage of google’s faulty sytem. A commenter explains: ‘The problem with blogger is that a group of people with an ax to grind can report any blog as spam and after enough complaints, it’s automatically suspended until a real live human being can get around to examining it. If enough complaints are registered with blogger, you might get a response within 5 days but it takes a concerted effort. This is a huge problem with blogger and something google needs to get a handle on.’”
