Would You Rather Party with the Democrats or Republicans?

Minnesota lawmakers want Republicans to get drunk. Well, not exactly, but they are considering a law that would keep bars serving alcohol until 4 am and liquor stores open on Sundays for the 11 days surrounding the Republican National Convention this summer. Last call is currently 2 am.

Establishments located within a 11 mile radius of the convention center would feel the alcohol love. Either Minnesota politicians are afraid a dry convention wouldn't be any fun, or they're trying to find a way to help the businesses rake in a few more dollars.

The Republican convention will be held at St. Paul from September 1st through 4th, and about 35,000 visitors are expected to attend. The Democrats will be gathering in Denver in late August.

Which convention would you rather attend?

Yeah! It should be like the Oscars. A party for each party not just Rep. and Dems. The republicans will have elephant rides and Charlton Hesston will be working security. The democrats will have pin the tail on the donkey and who ever gets their teeth kicked out first gets universal health insurance. The greens will have a swing with Tarzan from the trees booth. It would be grreAT!

Oh, you know that lady gets her drink on, hypnotic! (In fact, she probably got her drink on before designing that hat.)

I was kicked out of Dem. parties. I turned on the air conditioning ;-) Also, everything Stephley said. I far prefer the Republican shindigs.

I think I'm a fun partier, but maybe that's because I have Republican tastes in drink? (Remember that thread?)

I'm a Democrat, but I've been to parties with me - dust bunnies are more fun. I hate tofu, it's hard to have fun when you're worried about whether the cutlery is plastic or recycable bamboo, are the grapes union, is the wine organic... I'd slip in to a Republican party any day, just wouldn't get drunk enough to take one home!

They might puke in your lap if they've had some bad Japanese, though. I kid, I kid.

"less likely to puke on your shoes" I believe that was a GOP slogan at one time...

I'd rather drink with the Republicans. They'd probably have better booze, be more likely to buy, and less likely to puke on your shoes. :EVIL:

It'd work equally well with both sides :) Anyway, the least you'd come up with is candidates and delegates getting drunk and talking smack about their opponents!
hausfrau hausfrau 9 years
haah Jude, you're funny! You'd be like an undercover agent... like "no no, go on about insider trading... let me just adjust my wire...."

lol well when Liberty puts it THAT way I'm all about no drama. But I'd have to be very drunk first ;-)
Jude-C Jude-C 9 years
...get them drunk so they spill all their secrets and dirty laundry...get them drunk and take embarassing or incriminating photos... Actually, I'd rather booze it up with the opposition, now that I think about it!
