red BBQ in a blue city

I didn't know there were any overtly Republic Party barbeque places in Dallas, but I just discovered one -- near downtown Dallas. It is Sammy's BAR-B-Q; I know it's owned by Republics because they're hosting a fundraiser for John McBush tomorrow night, when The Presumptive Republic Party Nominee comes to town (7pm).

Note to self: cross Sammy's off my list of restaurants to ever dine in

Then again, it may not be well-attended because the tickets donations are so cheap (only $230 versus the $2,300 ticket to see McBush at the 5pm soiree at The Belo Mansion). For those of you who don't live here, Belo is the local media magnate, controlling the only daily newspaper, one of the TV stations, and whatever else they're allowed to own under FCC rules. No surprise they're backing the Republics because of their greed, desire to maintain power, etc.

I suspect the McBush Party's food will be prepared by undoc'd Mexican waitstaff, and served by $5.85*/hour Africans, while their Bentleys and Rolls-Royces are parked by White Teenage Republics (can't let the Darkies or the Wetbacks touch Their Cars, you see).

Related: Bill Moyers' latest show explores the growing divide between rich and poor in this country. None of the attendees at The McBush Fundraiser will have seen it, because to do so would have to admit that their whole lives are little more than a sham -- to con the middle class into paying the bulk of the taxes.
* only recently raised from $5.35/hour, after the Democrats pushed the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007. Also worth noting: Bill Moyers made the point that if The Minimum Wage had kept pace with inflation, it would now be $9.88/hour instead of $5.85 (after all these years of Republic Party rule).
