The 1st AAW French Fries Award

Nominations are now officially closed
and our judges are deliberating on the winners of the coveted Golden Fry,
or, as we say in French, La Frite d’Or.

AAW France is planning a special Paris Event to commemorate the lamentable 4th year anniversary of the US invasion of Iraq. Rather than marching on the streets, we thought it would be better to engage in a bit of satirical street theater.

So with tongue in cheek we are going to hold a French Roast...

The 1st AAW French Fries Awards
Saturday March 17, 2007

With a special Walter B. Jones Award
Walter B. Jones is the congressman who is best known for leading the effort to have french fries renamed "freedom fries" in House cafeteria menus as a protest against French opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Congressman Jones (R-NC) has now done an about-face concerning the Iraq War, he regrets his "freedom fries" initiative and more importantly he was a co-sponsor on the recent House bill, Resolution 63, opposing the surge or escalation of troops in Iraq and was one of 10 Republicans to vote their opposition to Bush.
