What Happens in Vegas – Is Often an Embarrassment

As if the major of Las Vegas weren’t embarrassing enough in the past….

Mayor endorses gin to fourth graders

Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman told a group of fourth graders on Monday that if he was marooned on a desert island the one thing he would want to have with him is a bottle of gin.

And when a student quizzed Goodman about his hobbies he replied that “drinking” was one of them, said Mackey Elementary School Principal Kamala Washington, who was present for the mayor’s visit.

Goodman was unapologetic for his comments that came during his visit to the elementary school in North Las Vegas.

Goodman is a complete idiot who many complain was bought and paid for by the mob. He’s been known to travel with his own personal Elvis impersonator and he has (had) a contract as a spokesman for Sapphire Gin. The guy is a loon but he does what the casino bosses tell him to.

Nevada Democrats decry Gibbons’ remarks

RENO, Nev. (AP) – Nevada Democrats are decrying remarks by U.S. Rep. Jim Gibbons condemning “tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippie, tie-dyed liberals” for their opposition to the war in Iraq.

Gibbons, a possible Republican contender for governor in 2006, made the remarks at a Lincoln Day dinner Friday in Elko, according to the Elko Daily Free Press.

While praising the efforts of American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, Gibbons accused liberals, movie stars and song makers of “trying to divide this country.”

“I say we tell those liberal, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, hippie, tie-dyed liberals to go make their movies and their music and whine somewhere else,” he said.

Extol the virtues of drinking gin to 4th graders and you get a pass… Tell the truth about liberals and you get all sorts of flack. Oh to be a Democrat.
