Quote
As Tampa gears up for the Republican National Convention, the biggest party it has ever held, the city and its businesses are primping and polishing for the August arrival of tens of thousands of visitors. Like it or not — mostly not, for city officials — Tampa’s well-known strip clubs have joined the welcome wagon.

Club owners here say they have schmoozed with their counterparts in former host cities, like Denver, and have been told that revenue pours in during conventions, sometimes quadrupling earnings from a Super Bowl week. As for party affiliation, this is one place where the country’s caustic partisan differences fall away, owners say.

What is your opinion of this thread?

Watch Dave being briefed by the mods.

Being a moderator is basically like one giant party.  Except you're the one ruining the party and everyone hates you.

Apparently the Republicans give them more revenue than the Democrats. Interesting...

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Alfred is the Atlasian equivalent of a malevolent deity.

Only an idiot would think that the NYT will run a similar article about Charlotte.

Its probably taken for granted. It isn't the Democrats who campaign on legislating Christian moral behavior.

Any Republican seen frequenting such establishments should immediately be expelled from the party. Sadly parties in the US do not work like that...

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.

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.

I don't see Ralph Nader being mentioned anywhere in the article.

why wouldn't any semi-major city have strip clubs?  'worth writing an article about' is a fungible standard.
