Talladega Frights: NASCAR Dems Get Immunized Against Republican Fever

From the “what they really think of the ‘regular people'” file comes this:

The immunization of Democratic House staffers against a host of major illnesses before attending NASCAR races for a public health fact-finding mission is being criticized by Republican lawmakers who call it an overreaction and an insult to the sport’s fans.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, Mississippi Democrat and chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, is conducting a study of homeland security measures at mass gatherings and says the recommendation to get immunization shots is a solid preventive policy.

I don’t believe this “mass gathering” stuff. Democrats got immunized for a NASCAR crowd, but I’m sure they wouldn’t have gotten immunizations if they went to a Dave Matthews concert — it must be that they think the Republicanism is airborne and deadly.

Have you ever been to an event that has thousands of liberals in attendance? You have to dress as if you’re going on a space walk or else you’ll get some form of Berkeley Andromeda Strain, but on the plus side, if police want to disperse the crowd quickly all they have to do is disguise themselves as showers. But elitist Dems are afraid of a predominantly Republican audience to the point of immunization against soylent redneck and confederate flag flu?

Conversely, if Democrats insist on going to NASCAR events, I hope they let NASCAR fans know so the crowd can be immunized against liberal, lest NASCAR fans wake up the next morning with the urge to listen to NPR, wear Birkenstocks and confiscate Dale Jr.’s car on behalf of the “common good.”
