With an approximately 27 million dollar deficit staring them straight in the face, the Democratic National Convention has decided to cancel their kickoff event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina.
Somehow, Nascar just doesn't seem to be the sort of sport that I imagine the Democrats would enjoy. They would have to rub shoulders with the common folk, eat greasy comfort food, and smell high octane fuel and burning rubber.
Perhaps white wine and violins back in town would be more appropriate.
It is also surprising that at this time they are so fearfully short of cash. Once again, the blue state management style has had it's expected result. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Next time, they should have the convention in Detroit, their spiritual home.
