    RNC: Where it won't be in 2016...

    ...Cincinnati:

    "Cincinnati has withdrawn its bid to host the 2016 Republican National Convention.
    The RNC Site Selection Committee was set to narrow the field during a Thursday afternoon conference call, but to the surprise of many, the Queen City decided to pull its bid from the running."


    More here in the video, but basically, our big convention center didn't have enough luxury boxes:

    Dang. No town invaded this summer by herds of Republicans. And I was so looking forward to helping give directions, restaurant recommendations, and other helpful tips to the conventioneers.

    This happened, despite the ebullient confidence of local GOP leaders just a couple of months ago, illustrated by this quote from John Barrett, Western-Southern president and RNC strike team leader for the Queen City:

    "Once we did the, ‘Who dey,’ it was all over,” Barrett said. “We know we got it.”

    ABC reports there are four towns left in the running for the RNC: Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, and Kansas City, MO.

    Anyone up for a betting pool?

    It should be in San Fran, As Johnny Rotten once said (I'm paraphrasing here) why go where you're accepted.

    2016 RNC Convention venue?

    Why not Florida again. Clint Eastwood could make another appearance.
    I am 100% convinced the internet and social media are not the salvation to human civility.

    .....and talk to an imaginary president. An imaginary president is what the Repubs ran against. How'd that work out?

    If the GOP had real balls, they'd pick Chicago.
    The crumbling of our wide freeways suggest a narrower vision

    Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda.

    I say Dallas or KC.

    Not denver - weed issue.

    Not Cleveland - crappy employment; middle class (whatever that is) is struggling; auto manufacturing is permanently contracted in labor union centered states; MI and northern OH are going to be economic problem children for at least a generation.
