    It says nothing of numbers that attend and in fact, says that both parties indulge. It merely says Republicans outspend the Dems $150 to $50. Proving that Dems only like to spend other people's money! smile

    Well FINALLY.
    Now we know what kind of jobs the Republicans support.

    For the girl's sake - I hope the GOP drops some bucks there. I doubt they will, but some of those girls are working their way through college and could sure use the cash.

      Absolutely. And even those not working their way through college could use the cash.

      Reminds me of a quote a few weeks back. People in Nevada were being interviewed about who they are supporting for president.
      The owner of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch (a brothel) says he is voting for Romney.
      He said "Obama doesn't know anything about business. He could never run the Bunny Ranch. Romney could."

      I find that hilarious.

    Let me surmise this situation.   Well, Republicans have an agenda which is anti-sex i.e. if you have sex and get pregnant, no abortion for you!    They are supposedly for sex when it is in the confines of marriage, to put it more succinctly, heterosexual marriage.     They also contend that women should be in their place so to speak i.e. preferrably housewives and mothers.    Now, what is wrong with this picture you ask?   Well, Republicans have their freaky side too it seem.   All these Republicans who tout anti-sexual values just have been caught with their pants down so to speak!    In other words,  I can be freaky, it is my prerogative but you the public and the "hoi polloi" cannot....hmmmmmm!

    I was just talking about this with friends on another website. We were guessing that the tampa overflow will end up at the clubs in Orlando. Not to mention the gay bars raking in the bucks from all the closeted boys. We bet that the Parliment House in Orlando is booked solid. LOL!

    I remember when they had president Bush (senior) in Grand Rapids. The gay bars were packed with guys in suits, when the normal attire for a couple of those bars is jeans and a flannel shirt. You can tell when there is a convention in town. Also happened when ever they have the big christian home-coming convention. You can bet the strip clubs were packed then too.

    Politicians and Religious folks like to put on a big front. But, a majority are just as dirty minded as the rest of us. Only some of us don't feel the need to hide or lie about it.

    Aw, c'mon'! You know a devout Republican male would NEVER go to a strip club! lol

    I think "boys will be boys," regardless of their political affiliation. Actually, the R guys are prolly just going as an act of charity. I'm sure they don't actually "look." (inject sarcasm here)

    It is a bigger deal because the Republicans tout themselves as the only party that believes in family values and morality.

    I heard on the radio this morning that one of the strip clubs is offering a Sarah Palin look-alike.
