What About the Fair?

The GOP will hold its 2008 nominating convention in one of four cities:

Cleveland
Minneapolis-St. Paul
Tampa-St. Pete’s
NYC

Nihilist in Golf Pants will shortly have up the 11 reasons why Cleveland should not be awarded the event, and the 11 reasons why the Twin Cities should host the event, but he will not be able to obscure the biggest problem with the Minnesota bid: The Great Minnesota Get-Together, the state fair, will overlap witht he convention, thus turning the Twin Cities into giant ghost towns at exactly the moment the GOP’s big tent comes to town.

Plus, Cleveland has the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Minnesota has Fort Snelling.

Cleveland has a Great Lake. Minneosta has Lake Minnetonka.

Cleveland has LeBron, an ascending Tribe and a rebuilding Browns.

The Twin Cities’ sports glories are all in the past.

Finally, Ohio’s bloggers are much better trivia players.


UPDATE
: Contenders for the Democratic gathering, from August 25 to 28 (immediately following the Beijing Olympics) are NYC (again), Denver, New Orleans and Minneapolis-St. Paul (and, yes, the state fair is underway then too.)
