Dog Eye on the Demo-cat Guy[s]
Wonder if he knows that pony he's sittin' on was takin' a leak while his picture was bein' snapped?
Other convention news. Michele Catalano at A Small Victory grabs Ted Rall where it hurts. (I resisted the easy rhyme 'cause Ted Rall has nothin' to rhyme with.)
One thing not mentioned in the post is that NYC wanted both conventions in New York, but the Demo-cats wouldn't share! (Scroll down to "Site Selection Process.") But that's pretty much SOP with Demo-cats, isn't it?
As the selection process began in the first part of 2002, New York City was a sentimental favorite to hold at least one, and possibly both, of the conventions as a show of support following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. […] However, the Democrats' RFP had an exclusivity clause in it, meaning that once a city is chosen to host the party's convention it must agree to drop any efforts to attract the other party's convention. New York City would not agree to that, although Democrats might possibly have waived the provision if they had determined New York was the best site and been convinced that the city would have put its full resources into the Democratic convention. [My emphasis.]
Betcha' if that had happened New Yorkers would have hated the DNC and the RNC 83% equally.
