Remember the voyage of the Khian Sea? It was a garbage barge that left Philadelphia on August 31, 1986, with the intention of dumping a load of incinerator ash, quite probably toxic. It wandered the earth, traveling from port to port, trying to find a place to dump its toxic waste.
Now, it seems that Americans for Prosperity are having similar troubles in finding a home for their wandering busloads. It seems that their appeal is increasing excrementally.
No restauranteur in their right mind would really like to own a political stand of any kind. It's nothing but a losing proposition. In my recent diary, I relayed a rumor that Scott Walker had been tossed from a local eatery (that had quite a bit of substance, according to Dr. Google). Now it's the Koch crew, trying to look credible, succeeding in being repulsive.
Why did the “Stand Against spending — Stand with Walker” bus tour and rally change locations several times in the hours before its 4:30 p.m. kickoff Thursday?
The answer depends on who you ask.
The article goes on to discuss this voyage of the damned. I think that they finally did make a landing at a rather nice place I've visited within the last couple of years.
The filth of this Koch presence is straining polite society:
In between Nino’s and the Seabird, the group approached Luigi’s Italian Restaurant about holding the event there. According to Luigi’s employee Melissa Korth, the restaurant decided not to allow it for space reasons, but by then the new location had already started to go around.
“We hadn’t really given them an answer and we think they assumed they had a reservation,” Korth said. And Luigi’s also received at least one call from an angry diner who promised to never come back if the rally was held there, she said.
Gabrielse said she never would have taken the dinner reservation if she’d known there was a political event attached to it.
This can't be over fast enough! This has been a real "clutch the pearls" moment.
