Mood: crushed out
Topic: "GOP Convention" (3)
Minneapolis is as close to sterile as urban life in America can ever hope to become. It is hard to imagine that there is any minority group larger than that of those born in Canada. Diversity is something that comes into the discussion when one considers visiting the "twin city" of St. Paul. So why should anyone be surprised that the world's greatest collection of overweight, predominantly male, lily-white, mostly retired, sexual deviants choose Minneapolis for the site of the Republican National Convention?
Frodo has been listening to the speculation regarding Senator Larry Craig (R-Idaho) (who just happens to be overweight, male, white, almost retired, and of questionable sexual appetite) with some modicum of attention. Wouldn't it be "amusing" for Senator Craig to attend the Convention, flying in we suspect from Boise, and to be caught on camera passing through the airport in Minneapolis, and find it necessary to use the Men's room?
Minneapolis was also the scene of the tragic bridge collapse which ended the lives of 13 people just a few short days ago. Perhaps our suddenly fiscally-concerned President will comment on the state of domestic spending for the relatives of those who died on a public thoroughfare? Frodo is not sure that such a speech will "fill the coffers" of those responsible for funding the gala affairs of Republicans in Minnesota.
Frodo now understands why Republicans look back at Ronald Reagan with such reverence. When he screwed up, it wasn't on purpose.
