Democrats being Democrats

"Each Meal Must Be Organically/ Locally Grown and Have At Least Three Of The Following Colors : Red, Green,Yellow, Blue/Purple and White."

With scant weeks to go before the curtain rises on the $41 million Democratic National Convention in Denver, planners find themselves millions in the hole.

It's not difficult to see why. Renovating the convention hall at the Pepsi Center already has cost $6 million more than they budgeted, and the work is far from done.

In renting offices, the party took top-shelf space in downtown Denver at $100,000 a month, only to discover it needed only half the space, and then filled the offices with rented furniture costing $50,000 a month.

A small fortune was spent to make this a "green convention," but 47 state delegations have balked at the additional expense.

The Democrats can't find enough caterers because the 28-page food contract micromanages menu choices to the point where each meal, not counting garnishes, must be organically and locally grown and have "at least three of the following five colors: red, green, yellow, blue/purple and white."

"Hillary Rodham Clinton’s cash-strapped presidential campaign has been putting off paying hundreds of bills for months — freeing up cash for critical media buys

but also earning the campaign a reputation as something of a deadbeat in some small-business circles. "
