Where's the Shrimp Vindaloo?

The John Kerry photo op at Wendy’s the other day was even more revealing than previously thought.

The Kerry-Edwards bus caravan stopped at a Wendy’s in Newburgh, New York to celebrate the Edwards’ wedding anniversary in the manner traditional to the Edwards family.

The Heinz-Kerrys had clearly never been in a Wendy’s before. John Kerry ordered a Frosty shake for lunch and Teresa Heinz-Kerry asked for the specials of the day and settled on a bowl of chili.

After some mock frivolity with the unwashed patrons and an oddly tense exchange with a table of Marines who supported President Bush, the entourage retreated back aboard the bus . . . photo-op complete.

So after pretending to mix it up with the regular folks what did the millionaire ticket really eat for lunch?

According to the Mid Hudson News, they ordered meals from Nikola’s Restaurant at the Newburgh Yacht Club.

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

I guess Edwards is right . . . there are two Americas.
