PA Legislator Wants to Ban French Wine

Oh this is hilarious.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A Pennsylvania lawmaker wants to ban state-owned liquor stores from selling imported French wine and spirits, saying he's fed up with France's opposition to a possible U.S.-led war on Iraq.

State Rep. Steve Barrar, a Republican from Delaware County outside Philadelphia, said he will introduce a resolution this month ordering the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to prohibit state stores from carrying and selling French booze.


"I even said to my kids I'm not buying french fries, I'm so mad at the French."

Thank God Jersey is just across the river...

All this might bring down the WTO, too.
