GOP Governors To Get Their Nails Did
This week's Republican Governor's Conference in Miami will be one of the first major meetings among party powers to decide the future of that sad ol' party. Though, this is Miami and the GOP knows it's the best place to relax and blow off steam after a series of crushing defeats.
So what are some of the fun activities awaiting Republican Governor's like Charlie Crist and (according to many sources) Sarah Palin?
On Wednesday they'll be a hip and happening "late night party" at the The Havana Club. We hear Bobby Jindal might hit the turntables. He just found out about this new band Justice, they are kind of underground, but he thinks they're awesome. Then, on Thursday afternoon conference attendees can choose to go on a leisurely boat cruise, tour the Art Deco District (which will include Gianni Versace's villa, who we all know was a symbol of Republican social values), or the "Day of Beauty" which includes "an afternoon of pampering to include manicures, pedicures, neck and shoulder massages." Oh la la.
And what's a gathering of Republicans with out a golf game? They'll be on the links on Friday at the Miami Beach Club.
There will also no doubt be some devious plans hatched during the week to try and recapture the White House in 2012, and more importantly several Governor's mansions in 2010 but the GOP needs a serious moral booster. So we hope the likes of Haley Barbour and Sonny Perdue don't get too worked up arguing which embarrassing candidate to run next (Mitt Romney or Sarah Palin?) and remember to take a little time off for themselves.
