Rising Tide Blogger Convention and New Orleans quits their Bid for the Dem National Convention

Let me give a plug for something the Right hand Thief has been plugging. That is the Rising Tide Blogger Convention in New Orleans. The blogs in New Orleans have been doing a hell of a job since Katrina keeping people informed and being a advocate for the average New Orleans Citizen. This convention will have bloggers from New Orleans , but it is for anyone anywhere that cares about New Orleans and having it rebuilt. It will be held August 25-27, 2006. I think anyone that wants to come down and be a part of this is welcome so contact them if interesteed. Seems like a fun reason to go to New Orleans to me. Right Hand Thief has been working hard on this kike I said. Here is a post on further details on the event.

In related news, Ashley Morris Blog tell us all about New Orleans taking themselves out of the race for the 2008 Dem Convention here. Lot info there

By the way, Tampa is very much in the running for the Republican National Convention with it being neck and neck with Cleveland. I have admit Tampa has certain advantages. It is a battleground State, its is fun, Jeb is there, and of course Again Jeb is there. It would be interesting to see the watch if he was picked for the VP slot in his home state. In fact some cynics are suggesting that maybe some people want an atmosphere conducive to that happening. The main draw back-Hurricanes. During the last convention if you remember many delegates from Flordia had to leave early when a hurricane was bearing down on their State. I can't even imagine the mess if we have to cancel the convention and have all those delgates vote someplace else. I suppose there is some contigency for such a horrible disaster.

That is why I propose the following.

That in a remarkeable show of national unity both Conventions decide to hold their conventions in New Orleans the same week!!! This could be accomplished by having a week long convention. Each party would share the Superdome. Dems and Repubs would alternate days and nights in which they would be speaking and on TV. Talk about exciting and showing the Country that Americans don't let Citites die

If a Hurricane comes we are both screwed
Save Money. We get to share expenses on the Dome.
It has never happen before and Media would flock there like never before
Boring convention coverage? I think not with all those people in town.
Great Protests, wow can't imagine the colorful people that would show up for this
Great Nightlife. Dueling Republican and Dems singing at Pat O'Briens Piano Bar
The chance to be sitting at a Bar with Ann Coulter and Maureen Dowd all at the same time

Seriously someone should propose this before it is too late. I think it might work and sounds like it would be fun to boot.

Absolutely magnificant. Someone needs to do a little time here. I just posted an update link over on The Pink Flamingo. Impressive. This rivals "Springtime for Hitler" in "The Producers"!
