According to today's New York Times, a democratic legislator from Minneapolis is co-sponsoring a bill in the state House of Representatives to allow bars in St. Paul to stay open until 4 a.m. during the Republican National Convention in September. Rep. Phyllis Kahn says the measure would make St. Paul seem more "sophisticated."
A democratic legislator from Minneapolis thinks drunken, blathering, inflatable-elephant-toting republicans roaming the streets of my fair (and historically democratic) city at 4 a.m. is sophisticated?
Must be an April Fool's joke. Or one of those instances of sibling rivalry everybody talks about.
