Oops, not again. As the GOP leadership considers which major city to host its 2016 national convention the rEligious rIght has warned against selecting Las Vegas. It matters not (apparently) the positive attributes of the cities ability to host a major national convention, the numbers of hotels etc. it matters only that Vegas is considered "The City of Sin" by the self righteous rollers that comprise the rEligious fUndamEntal faction of the GOP. Is anyone taking bets on what the Gee-Oh-Pee'er leadership will decide?
|Washington... Some of the heaviest hitters on the religious right are pressuring GOP leaders to cross off Las Vegas as a potential host city for its 2016 convention, warning that putting the next convention in Sin City will harm the party's image and drive away supporters.|
The leaders sent a letter last week to Republican chairman Reince Priebus, putting him on notice that picking Vegas would generate friction. They call the city a "trap waiting to ensnare". ...What could go wrong? The answer is obvious.
Leaders from the religious right who have joined the effort include Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association; Phyllis Schlafly, founder of Eagle Forum; Andrea Lafferty, president of the Traditional Values Coalition; Paul Caprio, director of Family-PAC; and James Dobson, president of Family Talk ministry.
"The GOP is supposedly interested in reaching out to conservatives and evangelicals. Maybe that's just a front, but if they really mean it this is not the way to do it", Dobson said Tuesday. "Even though Vegas has tried to shore itself up and call itself family-friendly, it's still a metaphor for decadence. There's still 64 pages of escort services in the yellow pages. ...You can't have it both ways". (Link).
Yowzah! 64 pages of escort services! Should the leadership decides to go with Las Vegas I for one will start making early plans to attend the festivities. Festivities including hiring a few hookers to join Lying Lester in his hotel room. Better remember to bring the Viagra! What happens in Vegas STAYS in Vegas, Baby!
