Now this is some good propaganda to really light the fire under them ball caps. A Democratic congressman from the Department of Homeland Security sent his aides to visit hospitals, detention centers and places of mass gathering to determine their preparedness for disease outbreaks. Two of the stops were Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Concord and the racetrack in Talladega, Ala, which can gather crowds of 200,000, some of whom camp in the parking lots before the events. (Kinda sounds like Greatful Dead concerts of yore, only with less tolerance for “your kind.”). They were advised to get vaccinated for hepatitis and a whole bunch of other killjoy maladies beforehand. Well, this has apparently upset some key Republicans –
Republicans said the suggestion of vaccines usually recommended for travel to Third World countries showed that the Democrats were out of touch with real Americans.
“While red-blooded, patriotic Americans were packing their coolers and gathering their families in preparation for attending last week’s race at Talladega, a leading Democrat was advising staff to get immunized,” said a news release by the National Republican Congressional Committee titled “Talladega Frights: Democrats Allergic to NASCAR Nation.”
Now why would anyone assume that a NASCAR tailgate party could possibly be a breeding ground for disease?
