It has been observed by more than a few people that the way Democrats have been running their primary should be a cautionary tale about how they would run the country. Now, let's consider evidence of how they are running their convention:
Fried shrimp on a bed of jasmine rice and a side of mango salad, all served on a styrofoam plate. Bottled water to wash it all down.
These trendy catering treats are unlikely to appear on the menu at parties sponsored by the Denver 2008 Host Committee during the Democratic National Convention this summer.
Fried foods are forbidden at the committee's 22 or so events, as is liquid served in individual plastic containers. Plates must be reusable, like china, recyclable or compostable. The food should be local, organic or both.
Ah, those repressed, authoritarian Republicans, eh, and those carefree, fun-loving Democrats.
