Minnesotans are rolling out the welcome wagon for the republican national convention. Graffiti artists are using creative word play with the term GOP. I love art!!!

Minnesota is rolling out the welcome mat, eh? The press here, now owned and operated by rethugs, can't praise the republicans enough. Yet in polls, if McCain were to choose Pawlenty, (Minnesota's current governor), as a running mate, less people who said they'd vote for McCain would do so.

Lawn signs for Obama are numerous, but the heated Senatorial race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken has Franken lawn signs beating up on Coleman three to one in St. Paul.

The convention may be here, but the people just want whatever money they, the repubs, are spewing forth for food, lodging and beverages. Over 30 bar owners decided to pay the extra fees of $2500.00 to stay open until 4:00 a.m. instead of closing at the 2:00 a.m. time.

It will be interesting as St. Paul doesn't have any titty bars, they're all in Minneapolis. Gay bars either as such.You can't get a rental car or a hotel/motel room. Should be good for the economy, but not for the traffic. It is said that gawkers will abound, not to mention the permitted marches scheduled for the circus event called the RNC. Prolly not much different in Denver.

The RNC is not going to have a great time in Minnesota, yah know. Those are great images.

dk- Yes for real! Don't ya love it?

Spado~ Communities are hungry for money so they will put up w a short term convention, and these particular visitors have lots of $$$.

Glad to hear Franken is doing well. I like the idea of an SNL comedian at the helm. If anything our current politicians lack a sense of humor.

So the bar owners are hedging their bets that the repugs will drive people to drink?
Safe bet, I'd say. Although the lack of gay bars could be an issue-- the republicans have a *wide stance* of issues. (Larry Craig humor there).
