Republicans Head to Vegas for Obama’s Inauguration

Sure we know that President Elect Barack Obama's inauguration will be held in Washington, D.C. on January 20.  But for Republicans, that's reason enough to get out of town.  And where better to go than Sin City, Las Vegas?

Charlie Spies, a Republican lawyer and former CFO to Mitt Romney's campaign, sent out an email blast inviting his GOP friends to come join him in Las Vegas that week.

The Las Vegas Sun was quick to send out the welcome wagon.  The paper offered a whole menu of appealing "Republican" activities.  Then again, some might not be so "Republican". 

Nightclub-wise, Pure, Tao and LAX are pretty hot, but you'll fit in at any club so long as you buy a bottle.

Or did you mean "party?"

Well, the brothels in Pahrump are perfectly legal. Of course, considering the tastes involved in certain, uh, scandals, you might want to stay here, where the working girls aren't necessarily girls ...

Did we say we would never tell on you? We would also never judge you.

Other activities that the Republicans might enjoy:  A day at the Gun Store on Tropicana Avenue; politically incorrect comedian Bobby Slayton at Hooter's; and lobster pot pie at Nobhill Tavern.

Where should these folks stay while vacationing in Vegas?

Although it's not like you would be ideologically uncomfortable anywhere on the Strip, as casino executives tend to donate to Republicans. The only exception isn't really an exception - Steve Wynn's wife may have been a big Obama supporter, but Mr. Wynn backed McCain. (Although the decor at the Wynn and Encore? It's a bit continental, a bit, uh, French.)
