LIMO SHORTAGE FOR DENVER DEMS ("people's party" pay $4,000 for black cars, $8000 for limos)
NY POST ^ | 8/13/08 | JEREMY OLSHAN

Posted on 08/13/2008 8:13:03 AM PDT by Liz

Limousine liberal convention-goers may have to take the bus----Denver does not have enough limos and black cars to go around. "Denver isn't really big on chauffeurs," said Barbara Curtis, Two Step Limousine. Denver has 271 limo companies, most with 2-3 cars. "Companies reserved black SUVs.....apparently the Secret Service had those canceled because they needed them," she said....black cars cost $4,000 for the 4-day convention, limos twice that.

So, I can make $1000 a day in Denver with my new black Jag?
It would cost more than that to get the stink out.

You should have seen the stretch HUMMER Limo parked in front of 24 Townsend St. Malden, MA last weekend. For those of you unfamiliar with that address, it is the “residence” of one “Fast Ed” Markey, the Chairman of the House Committee on Global warming.

““residence” of one “Fast Ed” Markey, the Chairman of the House Committee on Global warming.” What hypocrisy.

Someone should organize an “hypocrisy watch” news team complete with video for theses situations.

Shouldn’t they be practicing what they preach and take public transportation? Or at least carpool in cars that get 30 or 40mpg? What freaking hypocrites.

That is certifiably, absolutely bloody insane.

And sadly, that couple of thousand each won’t put a dent in their pocket.

Grammatically, that is correctly referred to as "an incoherent sentence".

All these screaming “save the environment” liberals will be meeting and are trying to find the least fuel-efficient and most polluting means of transportation there....

Yep - no wonder they love Obama so much.

*snort*

Donkeys used to be good enough for dems before they went all metrosexual on us, and there's plenty of eco-friendly transport still available for them in Cripple Creek.
