The GOP Finds A Home
Today it was revealed that the 2008 Republican Convention is going to be in Minneapolis/St. Paul. (Book your rooms now.) A very strange choice, it seems to me. But then I remembered Calvin Griffith's quote in explaining why he moved the Washington Senators to Minnesota in 1961: "We came here because you've got good, hardworking white people here." Seems fitting. This makes me hope even more that the Democrats have their convention in New Orleans. I can't imagine that the Big Easy was Mr. Griffith's favorite city (and how bout dem saints!).
