Since when did the phrase fiscal responsibility become synonymous with tightfisted cheapness? I’m referring, of course, to the recent “revelation” that the Republican National Committee is A) serious about winning elections and B) not run by a bunch of Amish dirt farmers. In other words, just the liberal drive-by media’s latest attempt to tarnish my party’s sterling reputation with a trumped up shitstorm of half-truths and exaggerations.
I mean, really. Let’s look at some of the alleged improper expenses from February:
- $17,000 for private jet travel
- $13,000 for limousines
- $30,500 for top flight hotels
- $43,000 for a midwinter meeting in Hawaii
- And my personal favorite: $2,000 at a bondage-themed topless club
I ask again — what’s the problem? Are RNC staffers supposed to walk from fundraiser to fundraiser, or travel in something akin to the Madden Cruiser? And where are they supposed to stay while drumming up support? Perhaps on the street? I have no doubt that such a sight would make the socialist opposition howl with laughter, but it’s hardly good for business.
As to the last item… we’re Republicans, not Jehovah’s Witnesses. We’re no more afraid of the sight of naked woman flesh than we are of Obama’s chances of a second term. Not to mention that two grand is a drop in the bucket. That’s what, 50 lap dances? Maybe twice that at a cheap establishment? And I can assure you that the club in question, Voyeur West Hollywood, is top of the line in every respect.
All in all, it sounds like money well spent to me. In fact, I’m going to send the RNC a very generous check as soon as I finish this post. With “titty clubs” written in bold letters in the “For:” line, no less. Have fun at your next church basement pancake fundraiser, you liberal twits.
