Bloodsucking parasites infest Democratic National Convention

Also, they’ve got bedbugs.

Washington Times:

The blood-sucking insects have made a resurgence in recent years, including reports of them at nine of the hotels being used for Democrats’ nominating convention this week in Charlotte…

But county health officials say they have taken precautions to make sure the pests aren’t waiting in hotel rooms to go home with guests as unwanted souvenirs…

The rise in the pest’s activity has led to the advent of websites such as BedBugReports.com and BedBugRegistry.com, where hotel-goers can report their bad experiences in hopes of warning other travelers.

A search of BedBugRegistry.com brings up more than 30 Charlotte-area hotels where visitors have reported bedbugs, including nine hotels that will host at least 10 of the state delegations attending this week’s convention.

Seems a bit redundant.

Say, why isn’t there a DemocratRegistry.com? Wouldn’t it be nice to have some sort of warning as you’re planning a trip? “No, honey, we can’t stay there. The place is crawling with them!” They’re already taking as much money out of your pocket as they can possibly get away with. Why give them even more?

Sleep tight tonight, DNC attendees. Don’t let the… Oh. Um, well, stock up on Gold Bond, I guess. Or are you being “denied access” to that, since the government doesn’t pay for it?
