Bush and Dick on Bourbon Street

By: Mr. Wilson on September 7, 2005
The editors of National Review Online want the 2008 Republican National Convention to be held in New Orleans. Seriously. Can you imagine Bush, Cheney, Rove, and the gang whooping it up in the French Quarter? Neither can I. Poor Rick Santorum would have an aneurism, and he wouldn't be the only one. Can you imagine a more transparent attempt to burnish the party's image after the Bush administration failed with the initial relief effort? Oh wait...
Critics will call it a transparent attempt to burnish the party's image after the Bush administration "failed" with the initial relief effort. The gesture would, however, reflect the genuine sentiment of Republicans who, like all Americans, want to help a city facing such a bleak future. We heard similar complaints — easily brushed off — about the Republicans' coming to New York for last year's convention.
Damn, they really bitch-slapped me with that pre-emptive strike! Boy, I guess since they were able to predict my (and everybody else's) critique, I must be wrong and they must be right. Well then, laissez les bontemps rouler! All kidding aside, the Dems have to be really pissed off right now that they didn't make this announcement first. That dang Karl Rove is just too quick on the trigger. That'll just make their mockery of the GOP's decision even more bitter.


See what your friends and neighbors have to say about this.

They may also be counting on the support and forgiveness of all the people who were holed up with piles of shit and dead bodies in the Convention Center last week. I’m sure they’ll be thrilled to see the Repubs there in 2008.
