Dem Con 08 in Denver, get cracking on your exit strategy

So Westword has it that the Dem Con 08, also known as The Most Boring Event in the History of Humanity, is coming to town.

All I can think about is traffic… I know it’s good for the local economy and all that, but it’s going to be a mess up in this mofo.

And, of course, there’s the fact that the last Boston convention was a disaster for the Dems who, in hyper wuss mode, enacted a policy wherein convention speakers were prohibited from mentioning Bush & Cheney by name.

Cut to the GOP John Kerry flip-flop fest in NYC and it was nothing but attacks on Kerry… from a Democrat no less…

If you’re interested in this sort of thing, take a listen to this interview with James Carville and Paul Begala on WNYC. If these centrist Dems are ripping their party leadership over the convention, it’s gotta be pretty bad.

Hopefully they won’t be such spineless hacks when they’re here. Then again, if Hillary “I have no discernible position on Iraq” Clinton gets the nod…

    The linked Westword article is making a prediction. At this time, it does not appear that the convention city has been selected.

    However, it *has* been confirmed that Denver will host the 2008 World Science Fiction Convention! Whooo! :)

    Denver’s bid beat Geneva on this, even with their catchy “Support the Geneva Convention” slogan. (har, har)
