This handout photo received 09 July, 2004 shows a bottle of ” W Ketchup”. The product is made in the US and the letter “W ” stands for Washington. Americans allergic to the subtle Democratic flavor of Heinz ketchup can now plunge their “freedom fries” into a 100-percent guaranteed, patriotic alternative: “W Ketchup.” “You don’t support Democrats. Why should your ketchup?” says the W Ketchup Internet site, which promises a totally US-made condiment, right down to the bottle. Heinz ketchup is an institution on American dining tables. But the taste has soured a little for Republicans because Heinz empire heiress Teresa Heinz-Kerry is married to US presidential candidate John Kerry, the Democrat hoping to unseat George W. Bush — also known simply as “W” — on 02 November. AFP PHOTO/HO
