News Flash: Democrats Are Boring

In the wake of the RNC party-hearty scandal, the crack oppo research team at the GOP has been digging into the files of the DNC and discovering that they spent money on hotels and catering. Quelle scandale!

The DNC spent at least $2,204,000 for luxury hotels & caterers, Including:

The DNC has spent at least $423,000 at Mandarin Oriental Hotels. (Federal Elections Commission, www.fec.gov, accessed: 3/31/10)

The DNC spent at least $530,000 at Hilton Hotels. (Federal Elections Commission, www.fec.gov, accessed: 3/31/10)

The DNC spent at least $7,000 at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach. (Federal Elections Commission, www.fec.gov, accessed: 3/31/10)

Wait, they stayed at the Fontainebleau and I wasn’t invited? WTF? Besides, what are they doing staying up at that end of Miami Beach? You couldn’t get more white-bread red-state nouveau-riche kitschy than the Fontainebleau if you tried; it reeks of it.

Now had they asked me, I would have told them to head down to SoBe and then hang out at Club Space over in Miami. (I’ve never been there, but I’ve driven by it on my way to work at 5:30 a.m. and it was hoppin’. I don’t know if they have faux lesbian bondage acts, though.)
