(National Review)   DNC accommodations for journalists: "Two guys were dealing drugs in the room next to me, and a prostitute was working out of the parking lot." So I guess they've found Bill Clinton's hotel   ( nationalreview.com) divider line

So the DNC didn't give the best accommodations to reporters from the National Review? Shocking - I hope they don't bias their coverage of the convention as a result....

Really? The NRO is complaining that history's greatest socialist monster didn't put them up in a 4 star hotel? Really?

Here we see a journalist in his natural habitat.

The species is known to flourish in such environments due low rates and the availability of alcohol, drugs, and prostitutes.

In the old days, that's the type of accommodations journalists preferred...

Felgraf: Probably, but I'm still going to try to resist it-it's a very negative emotion, and just too easily leads to horrible things,

I can't speak for the delegates or ther foreign dignitaries, but many of the journalists I have spoken with here are appalled at the accommodations in Charlotte to which they were assigned by the DNC. National Review was assigned to two Knights Inn properties. Everyone who saw them fled immediately across state lines to an available Marriott in South Carolina rather than stay there.

I stayed at a Knights Inn once, and I was almost legitimately raped in the parking lot.

Why is NRO even attending the DNC? They're just going to make shiat up anyway, surely they could do that at home.

Cinaed: The writer knows this.... because... he bought an eight ball and got a handjob in the parking lot?

No, the hand job was how he paid for the eight ball.

UNC_Samurai: calm like a bomb: Great_Milenko: Maybe this has more to do with the fact that Charlotte, like most of North Carolina, is a shiathole.

Wow. Go for the low-hanging fruit, eh?

Especially coming from someone who in their profile says they live in PA. Their state liquor board makes ours seem sane. Now excuse me, I'm going to go to my local grocery store and buy a single can of beer and a bottle of wine without having to use a breathalyzer.

It's an urban legend that you had to do all that to purchase alcohol. Most of the time the machine malfunctioned and you never got anything at all for your efforts.

They're going to round up white conservative men and imprison them in FEMA Knights Inns! With only female prostitutes!

I'm confused. They are told which hotels they can go to? Does the DNC make their reservations and everything? That's not very boot-strappy.

NotSoup: At least it was a female prostitute, unlike the RNC.

Why else would these guys be complaining?

Thats pretty funny. Given the type of journos in their list of publications, I would imagine the crack-whores complained about the smell and had them thrown out for putting off the customers.

Between the source and the instagreen, I'm going to guess that the drug dealers were two guys drinking beer and the prostitute was a woman hanging out with her husband.
