Democrats reverse positions on what food can be served at the National Convention

The Denver Post has the change here. This is just emblematic of the problems Dems have in running people's lives.

Rest assured: Chicken tenders and doughnuts will make appearances at the Democratic National Convention.
In the midst of media mockery and embarrassment among national Democrats that Denver had declared fried foods a party foul and had ordered multihued entrees, the Denver host committee has softened an original document that called for caterers to be "lean and green."
Local officials are now calling the 12 stipulations laid out in a May Request for Proposal to caterers "guidelines."
The May request asked caterers to make "every effort" to accomplish healthy goals and called for:
• Three-colored meals selected from the following palette: red, green, yellow, purple and white.
• Half of the plate should belong to fruits and vegetables.
• No fried foods.
• The use of 70 percent organic or Colorado-grown ingredients.
A memo, titled "Fiction Fuels Frivolous Food Fight," will be issued later this week in an attempt to bring everyone — caterers, national Democratic operatives tired of tongue-in-cheek press about it — back from the ledge.
"Maybe we didn't do a very good job on the outset," said Chris Lopez, spokesman for the Denver host committee. "We'll take criticism for not presenting it well. It's a guideline. It's a recommendation. It's not to say we have lean and green mandates." . . .
