As for the Democratic National Convention, it will be the first one I skip since 1960.
Let's be honest: It has no mystery, no fights, and it's in Charlotte, N.C., which is about as far off the beaten path - or easy airplane connections - as you can get.
And when you get there, there is no shopping. The only thing to buy is bootleg booze.

“or easy airplane connections “
The author is just a bigot and anti-South. Charlotte is a connection airport to Atlanta, Cincinnati, and other major cities.
Consider the source.
Just the kind of dismissive elitist contempt one would expect from “Sodom by the Bay’’.
His skit hit a nerve with the Libs/Lefties/MSM, too, because they are still talking/writing/reporting about it.
Yes, I live here and this dude is nuts... Charlotte Douglas INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.... LOTS OF LEGAL BOOZE EVERYWHERE AND ALL TYPES. Bars , clubs, whatever...
Wasn't he in New Jack City? Played a snitch if I remember right.
My guess is that the writer’s never been more than 20 miles from any American coastline - ever.
Yeah there the ticket, we should let a life Long Democrat politician tell us what to think about the RNC.
Wow - aren't we feeling a little uppity! I mean, bless his little heart, he's not wanting to leave good ol' San Francisco for someplace as lowly as Charlotte, North Carolina.
Yep. Spin doctors here keep trying to diminish it as well. First bit of fresh air in this campaign at all, and one of the rare moments of joy in the past twenty two dismal years.
Charlotte is one of the main hubs for USAir. It has DIRECT flights to every major city in the United States.
He was Pookie the crackhead.
I think what he really means is that there are no bath houses.
It has no mystery, no fights,
Willie would prefer Chicago where tens of people are
shot every day...
It was different, funny, and effective.
This man only knows Manhatten and LA, and stereotypical antidotes about what lies in between. Poor soul, watched one too many episodes of Mayberry RFD, and thinks Otis is going to try and serve him moonshine.
wow, what an idiot, Charlotte is a major airline hub, had tons of developments going on, it is BOOMING industry wise, bank wise, it is busier than New England, especially Connecticut
this guy has no clue what he is talking about
I so don’t care what Willie Brown thinks about any Republican. Actually, nothing that he thinks is worthy of note.
Isn’t he the basis for the Mr. Hanky character on South Park?
The fact that he’s skipping the hussein fest speaks volumes. Conventions are places where pols go to be seen. He doesn’t want to be seen.
Oh, so the former pimp-lawyer and grafter, who had dozens of Armani suits in a walk-in closet that he bought on his $30,000/year salary as speaker of the California house of representatives, is a cultchah-vultchah and a snob now? So when did you go off drinking bootleg liquor, Willie?
Come on, Willie -- square up with us. Tell us you hate crackers, you hate Tarheel, and you won't go there until the brothers kill the last cracka MF in the State, and make it safe for bright new tomorrows, etc., etc.
He's actually dumping spleen on Tarheel to disguise the fact that, as our FRiends point out, it's really Bozo he's avoiding.
Traitor-spawn Mark Halperin of TIME magazine, son of Morton Halperin the Traitor, twice in one evening called Eastwood's speech "a Bayonne dinner-club routine". He went out of his way to show his venom both on Gwen Ifill's PBS convention show and Charlie Rose's show only minutes later.
Yeah, Clint hit a nerve.
Halperin and shower-buddy John Heilemann of The New Yorker went on and on, on Charlie Rose, about how the MSM was going to slice, dice, garble, and counterfeit Clint's critique -- that the GOP message would not get out. (They had to be pretty pissed to admit it!) But now the vid has gone viral, and they're all screwed. Between Clint and Dinesh D'Souza, Barky gots a lot of 'splainin' to do. </Ricky Ricardo>
Charlotte is actually my fav airport in the US ... love them white rocking chairs
Willie is San Francisco. You really don’t know who he IS?
Every once in awhile, Willie goes way off the reservation. It’s interesting when he does, kind of a “nobody asked me...” Jimmy Cannon column.
what would make a person say something about our state that he knows nothing about?
he’s not a nice person apparently
Weak excuse. Charlotte is a hub for US Air.
I guess in this case, this author is living my tagline...
I’ve been there three times. No problem to get there and wonderful people.
re: He was Pookie the crackhead
= = = = = = = = = = = =
Willie Brown or Chris Rock? LOL
US Airways is based there and the airport has 500+ departures a day. Doesnt anyone proofread anything anymore?
I searched for empty chair on images.google.com and wow! thousands of images related to Clint mocking the empty chair!Empty Chair President
Got my chair! Do you have yours?
We Own This!
Boy, I’ll say! Who is that dorky looking guy in the black glasses about three rows down?
Bigoted no nothing California mega-thief douchebag coward bad mouths the wonderful city of Charlotte.
Why didn’t he come right out and call it “moonshine”? You KNOW that’s what he was thinking.
Oh my, how I loved them. Didn't always agree, but very enjoyable to read on the after-work subway trip home.
Hey now, stop putting on airs, everybody in San Francisco knows all they need to about you southerners from the movies...
Liberals simply have a personal comfort zone the size of a walnut. Everything is scary and foreign to them outside of their little concrete cities and dog parks.
I’ve made a flight connection once to Charlotte. Never saw the city but any one who doesn’t like the South - it makes me wonder why the Democrats are bothering to hold their convention in a predominantly GOP state.
The pickings up North are not good enough?
