As I had to deal with our other city hosting the RNC last year this doesn't surprise me. Some might remember me making a thread about boycotting a certain strip club because of an ad describing it as "RNC Party Headquarters", and remember an ad for an adult store that said "elephants have sex too" which was kind of a cute way to advertise in regards to the RNC yet also not excessively alienate the overwhelmingly liberal readership of the City Pages.
Only an idiot would think that the NYT will run a similar article about Charlotte.
Only a idiot would think Charlotte has strip clubs worthy of writing an article about.
It's got some decent ones per the site I reference on the matter....
But yeah, it's not hypocritical for Democrats to patronize strip clubs.
