Well, we can be sure that the delegates, the attendees, and the speakers will all behave themselves as well, or better than government employees, I am sure. I mean, look at Hannity, giving single mothers the chance to get a leg up in Nevada, right? I am almost certain that there will be no shenanigans or less than gentlemanly behavior, and certainly no stories to leak from the hallowed halls of the Convention of any sort of debauchery, because so many have pointed fingers at the whole Hookergate scandal...

I'll assume, since this is the GOP, that they are gay strip clubs.

Does subby know that the 2004 DNC was held in the city that THE BRITISH OCCUPIED? Does subby remember that the 2004 RNC was held in a city where 9/11 HAPPENED? Were THOSE also coincidences? I think NOT.

Rent boys are going to make a farking FORTUNE this year in Tampa.

Does subby know Republicans will not go to Mons Venus or 2001 Odyssey because they only have female strippers? Does subby know Republicans will go to Hamburger Mary's for some wholesome meat, drag show?

The closeted ones find each other on Craigslist. No strip clubs necessary.
 
2012-04-28 04:31:11 PM
There will be absolutely no scandals and everything will be boringly OK, so long as the Secret Service is not there.

If they show up, all bets are off.
 
2012-04-28 04:31:12 PM
I feel bad for all the male escorts in that city - they are going to have have to help a lot of GOPers work through their repression.

Subby is serious about skin bars.

Portland Oregon has the best strip joints. Naked,cocktails,no or little cover,video poker. Vegas strip joints suck.

Only the top 5? What would the other 4 be?

I've been in awe by their decision to choose Tampa. That city is so far to the left they may as well be be located in China. On second thought, China wouldn't even put up with them.

Came to say this. We have more strip clubs per capita than any city in the country. Suck it Tampa.

Tampa may have better hookers, though. Not that I would know of such things.
 
2012-04-28 04:38:40 PM
Of course. The party of Do As I Say, Not As I Do.

You know, GOPers, people wouldn't make nearly as much fun of you if you didn't try to tell others what to do based on puritanical Sunday school precepts.
Science, reason, compassionate intuition ... now those are valid bases for the other side to say Hey, let's recycle, or Hey, let's not bully our fellow human beings, or Hey, let's not demonize our public servants.
But YOUR way? (Sorry, don't have time for a list.) That's f'd up.

It's for the drama factor, just like when they came to Minneapolis or Saint Paul (can't remember which) all those years ago. The fact that the Cities are way left only meant that there would be plenty of protestors that the paid off cops would be able to beat down and arrest for profit, I mean public safety.

From the article:
As well, the proprietors of these va-va-voom clubs plan to import additional fair maidens from other venues for the dining and dancing and . . . well,

The newspaper columnist who wrote this is clearly 116 years old.

slick willie would be disappointed. although he does like the ugly, plumpy clicks, so the strippers and hill would be out.

Rick Santorum seems to think you guys are getting "rent boys" confused with "lesbian themed bondage clubs"...


Has it been two years already?

This kind of thing does seem very pre-"scandal" though.

It's too bad I don't live there. I think it would be hilarious to sit outside all of the entrances and video cast everyone entering or leaving.

A lot of gay bashing going on here from the left handed farkers.
 
2012-04-28 05:00:35 PM
Well, I think it's safe to say we'll know where the Ron Paul delegates will be.

PolitiFact Florida: Is Tampa the 'strip club capital of the world'?
...
According to the magazine's count, Tampa has 20 night clubs, and the entire Tampa Bay area has 30.

Meanwhile, Miami has 30 in the city and 50 in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale corridor. (City of Miami officials did not return calls.) New York City has 45, not including Long Island or New Jersey. Las Vegas has 40 clubs. (We actually tallied 34 licensed nude and topless clubs in the Las Vegas region from local officials there, so counting clubs is not an exact science.)
...
If Tampa isn't the strip club capital of the world, we wondered if perhaps it might be No. 1 on a per capita basis. That metric would account for Tampa being a smaller city than New York or Miami. But a 2006 economic development study from the Tampa Bay Partnership found the city was merely No. 3 for strip clubs on a per capita basis, ranking behind Las Vegas, and -- even more deflating -- Cincinnati.

Well, I'll tell you when they break the Derp Barrier and hold it here in Hawaii.

The Hawaii Convention Center at the intersection of Kalakaua and Kapiolani is perfect for this kind of thing, after all.

It's flanked by at least four strip clubs that I know about, one sex toy shop (used to be two, the other closed a while ago) and I'll bet that half the "massage parlors" out of Century Center (the big black tower diagonally across the street) are rub-and-tugs.
Meanwhile, it's less than 10 miles from the place that's sick and tired of hearing requests for Obama's birth certificate from random assholes (that would be the Department of Health records office near Punchbowl and Beretania, hey, maybe you Senators would have better luck, nyuk nyuk) and from the school he attended (Punahou)...

It's not the gay sex they have a problem with, it's the hypocrisy of claiming to hate gays, and then buggering some guy in an airport bathroom.

You know, a small group of fellows with enough cash and wireless cameras could record an, er, interesting amount of activity of, say, people going in and out of those clubs, not that anyone would USE those videos for any nefarious purposes.

Just saying....

If it were in Peoria or SLC or anywhere you'd claim they're all hypocrites.
 
2012-04-28 05:29:33 PM
And the Ybor (GaYbor) district is gearing up for this I'm sure. As well as the many Asian massage parlors on Kennedy.

Tampa, come for the crazy (voters) stay for the titties and ladyboys!

I love my hometown!! :)

Or they could use those camera to record NAKED WOMEN.

Get your priorities in order.

Are you sure about that? Tampa has a giant Rebel flag held up as you enter the city. You can't swing a dead cat without hitting a crazy religious freak. And we LOVE our guns!

Bullshiat. They are using it as an insult without realizing the Republicans are far from the only hypocrites in the situation.
