D.C. Lobbying Firm To Hold “White Trash Reception” For Congressional Staffers…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nice to know they think so highly of us:

Yeah, you read that headline right. The lobbying and policy shop Strategic Health Care is hosting a “White Trash Reception on the Hill” next week. We get forwarded a lot of reception invites here at the Alley and we’ve never seen one quite like this before. [...]

Just to make sure we weren’t getting punked, we phoned Swickard, the firm’s director of government relations, to ask if the invitation is legit. It is.

She said the party at the firm’s Capitol Hill townhouse gathers lobbyists, Hill staffers and health industry types for some happy hour fun. The firm throws themed parties every couple of months, though past themes have included the decidedly less edgy pirate and cherry blossom varieties.

    I anxiously await my invite to the Gangsta’s and Ho’s shindig. I am fully prepared to break out my Fuzzy Bear pimp costume. Double standards abound in the Make Believe Land known as the Beltway.

    I was thinking maybe next time they could do a Blackface Reception On the Hill party. After all, most of the players up there are already doing that 24./7(well, except for the white around their lips…). And the biggest blackface IS just up the hill in the Big House.

    Chased it over to WeasleZippers, looking for more details – found this comment from ‘ThunderLizard’ :

    In a global economic collapse followed by hyper-inflation and anarchy in the streets who would you rather hang out with? East and West Coast urban elites, or the stars of “Swamp People”?

    Somehow, I think those the Left derisively labels as “backwoods hicks” “white trash” and “rednecks” will fare much, much better in day to day living than the Ivy League/Hollywood sophisticates. Think Hank Williams Jr. “…we can skin a buck and run a trot line.”

    …’nuff said.

    I’m thinking a Politicians on the Hill party. I’ll come dressed as a Kennedy, and my fiance can be a dead drowned girl.

    Come early 2013, there are going to be quite a few new faces in DC that might not think these liberal elitists have been making smart choices.

    In a societal breakdown scenario any urban that shows up here univited will get one chance, and one chance only, to move along. After that I’m going to kill them and take whatever shit they have.

    Like their credit cards and iPods will be any use at all. Even their shoes would be uncomfortable. Use the wood chipper and maybe they can contribute to the mulch pile.

    Nope, you would be better off salting the ground, more would grow in salt than it would in liberal.

    Are you kidding? As full of shit as most liberals are the tomatoes and corn alone would be enough to sustain a small town! :em05:
