With Larry Craig dominating the Republican headlines of late an important story has been overlooked -- specifically, the all-important preparations that are underway for the 2008 Republican National Convention to be held in Minneapolis/St. Paul September 1st though 4th of next year.
The large and elaborate stages are being staged, the lighting is being lit, the bleachers are being bleached, the bunting is being... bunted, all in preparation for the onslaught of Republicans who will descend upon the area.
Minneapolis/St. Paul city planners, in concert with administrative members of the city fire and police departments, are of course involved directly in the planning of the event and traffic flows, coordinating with members of the Republican National Committee's (RNC) convention services planning group.
And luckily, Wizbang Blue has received a real scoop -- an early peek at the soon-to-be-published video press release which details the RNC's plans for housing many of the thousands of Republican conventioneers, politicians, and GOP party officials who will be attending the convention.
Ample closet space will of course be provided.
