Remember "fake turkey?"

Remember last Thanksgiving, when President Bush flew to Iraq to serve diner to our people? And the main reaction from the Media Wing of the Democrat Party was a big sneer? Remember the "fake turkey?" (It wasn't, of course, fake, but the lie is still circulating.)

Now we have what seems to be "the fake Wendy's lunch."

...A member of the Kerry advance team called Nikola’s Restaurant at the Newburgh Yacht Club the night before and ordered 19 five-star lunches to go that would be picked up at noon Friday. Management at the restaurant, which is operated by CIA graduate chef Michael Dederick, was told the meals would be for the Kerry and Edwards families and actor Ben Affleck who was with them on the tour.

The gourmet meals to go included shrimp vindallo, grilled diver sea scallops, prosciutto, wrapped stuffed chicken, and steak salad. The meals came to about $200...

Sounds tasty. Shall I just sit here a while and hold my breath and wait for the press to make a big deal out of this fake? Ha ha, just kidding. Never happen.

Thanks to PowerLine, where DEACON adds: Even my French wife, no fan of fast-food, is incredulous over this. She asks, "couldn't they stand to eat one Wendy's meal?" Apparently not.

I myself prefer Burger King, but is not Paris worth a mass?
