‘Bama GOP To Watch Tonght’s Returns While Busting Caps

Unlike just about every other election night “party” designed to let friends, family, fundraisers and flunkies watch the returns come in, the Alabama GOP’s throwing a little shindig tonight that people will actually be looking forward to. No generic hotel ballroom for them. Instead, Fox News reports that “The state Republican Party is inviting supporters to the 52,000-square-foot Hoover Tactical Firearms for a ‘victory party’ Tuesday night.” And if you have enough safety Nazi in you to wonder about the advisability of combining booze, ballistics and ballot counts, don’t. “Loaded guns will be allowed only on the firing range and a party spokeswoman says drinking won’t be allowed while people are shooting. Republicans are expecting GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney to easily carry Alabama.” Ya think? So tonight’s affair will feature booze, guns and Miss Alabama. Now that’s a political party we can get behind.
