        One evening during the RNC I went out with friends and took a cab back to Penn Station so I could get the train home to the burbs. (The convention was being held in Madison Square Garden, which sits on top of Penn Station.) The surface streets around MSG were shut to traffic, so I had to get out and walk--after explaining to several cops where I was going and showing my ticket (seriously! I think most people took the subway, they encouraged you to do it, I seem to remember, but I had gone out someplace that wasn't close to a subway line.) Anyway, I could not get over the guys walking up and down 34th St with RNC tags around their necks, their arms around an escort. Half of them had on ridiculous cowboy hats, and even as a New Yorker I kept thinking "All hat, no cattle!"  Ugh.  Apparently the number of escorts goes through the roof for the GOP. I know I said a couple of rude things, which probably weren't even heard by the drunken delegates, but I couldn't restrain myself. I wish I could remember what I said...

    •  Denver... (0+ / 0-)

      is a finalist, and it's blue as well.
