I vote for East St Louis.
Haven’t cases of voter fraud been reported in all those cities in the last couple of years?
It will be ironic if they choose a city administered by Republicans in a Republican state. Can’t imagine they wouldn’t want to go to Chicago or Detroit...
Detroit would be too funny.
The DNC better have plenty of liberal feelings in their sales pitch because the last convention wasn’t a rousing success financially for Charlotte. I read it ended up costing them some serious dollars and was of little benefit to the local economy.
I’ll say this ahead of time. Anybody who gets ripped off by contracting or supplying the convention deserves what they get. Cash up front only.
Detroit is an option? Bizarre! Then again, plenty of abandoned building they wouldn’t have to pay rent for.
Havana as a true reflection of their core beliefs. After all that’s where the congressional Hags go for their facelifts anyway LOL. Or some quaint San Francisco Bath House.
I don’t think there’s any real competition here. Harry Reid has done the WH bidding for six years, and he’ll inject that Vegas is the only place to really pay him and his sponsors back. You can figure that they will gouge the Democrats to 300-percent of what it ought to cost, and leave the party in serious financial jeopardy for the next five years.
Other suitable Reid turf would be Death Valley. Desolate and uninhabitable much like their future plans for the entire United States.
Havana is an excellent choice. Or Pyongyang.
Gitmo with their Mohammedan buddies.
They need to find a city that doesn’t remind everyone of failed liberal policies...
So scratch Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis and all other Midwestern cities off the list.
It can’t be in a conservative state... so scratch SLC, Nashville and most Southern cities.
NYC reminds America of 9-11 and Boston is too liberal.
Scratch states that elect a (R) senator in 2014.
Scratch states that had failed Obamacare rollout and your left with Washington State or California.
Stay away from Pelosilandia. And your left with Seattle.
How about ANWR? Far away, they love the place and the quiet would be perfect for hatching evil plots.
I wanna see ‘em try to make it from their hotels to the convention center!
Feel the love!
That’s a smarter list than the GOP’s—with Las Vegas on there as a giant moral hazard.
but I could see them coming to Nashville so they can all come and visit one of the successful Amazon facilities nearby and get their fancy coffee drinks delivered to them by drones.
How about Mecca?
Chitcago so they can dodge bullets with their homies.
Nah, too much reminder of the failures of Obama and his ilk. Mayor Rahm is having great problems with the Teacher Unions there which will be another strike against it.
Yea they should also be unarmed and have no security escort just like the Utopia they wish for LOL.
Why didn’t Moscow make the list?
Come on down to Camden, NJ! Don’t abandon your voters, democrats...be with them and let them appreciate you!
You are right....hold it in Detroit.
Make each delegate drive their own car up there and be sure to have 4 cinder blocks in the trunk so that when they steal the wheels off the car they will have something to put your car on.
Better yet, just leave the keys in the ignition.
Indy ‘unlikely’ to seek 2016 party conventions
Mayor Greg Ballard’s spokesman said Tuesday the city is “unlikely” to submit bids to host either of the conventions. Ballard spokesman Marc Lotter said both major parties reached out to the city, but the city’s tourism officials have already booked other events through much of 2016.
It’s hilarious that Detroit is on the list.
How about Detroit? It’s the poster-city for progressive Democrat governance, and it could use the money.
Downtown Memphis. At the end there will be fewer Democrats.
I think that they should just hold it in Washington, DC. It is where most of the delegates live anyway, Congress, Federal appointees, the union headquarters (SEIU, AFSLME, etc.), the liberal media and of course, The One.
They would save a fortune on transportation and hotel costs and be surrounded by people completely unlikely to protest any of their activities.
I was driving across the country. Passing through the hell hole of ESL, I was at a stop light in front of a bar. It was about 11AM. A hooker approached my car to see if I wanted to party. We had a nice little humorous chat. And then she saw my ten year old daughter in the seat next to me.
It did not take long before the hooker realized I was not down to party. It took a little bit longer for my daughter to figure out why Daddy was flirting with this toothless skinny lady.
We (my daughter and I) laugh about it today. It is her, “first time I ever saw a crack whore” story. And she got to share that moment with me. I am so proud.
Thanks East St Louis! You deserve any great moment you can get!
They are not commits any more. Dictatorial fascists—perhaps. But not commits. They don’t want the Dems there brining commie back.
Commits = Commies. Steve jobs—burn in auto-korreckt hell!
Good. Stay the hell out of Texas!!! (not you SoFlo,,the Dems!)
“And your left with Seattle.”
I heard on the radio a month or 2 ago that the DNC was considering Seattle but the Mayor or City Council (forget which)said they didn’t want the DNC convention here. Given the Mayor is a Lib, I can only surmise it was a money issue (e.g., DNC doesn’t always pay their bills for conventions, etc.). IIRC Portland,OR was also under consideration and they said no as well.
No matter where they go demand “cash only” and rob them blind.
Camden NJ didn’t make the list?
I’m surprised San Antonio is not on the list. Being that the Wonder Boys (Castro Bros.) are from there and are media darlings.
Well there’s always Boise.
