The Kennedy Battallion Alone Numbers In The Hundreds

As Den Beste says, you just can’t make up stuff like this.

Security officers won’t be the only professionals coming to Boston in unprecedented numbers for the Democratic National Convention.

Practitioners of the world’s oldest profession are seeking reinforcements to help service some of the 35,000 visitors — plus untold numbers of police reinforcements — expected in the coming week when Democrats name Sen. John Kerry their presidential candidate.

“Every convention brings in more people, and women fly in from all over the country to work it,” said Robyn Few, a prostitute on probation who runs the Sex Workers Outreach Project, an advocacy group.

“There will be girls from California and from the South in Boston this week,” she said. “I hope a lot of women make a lot of money and make a lot of men really happy.”

Come to think of it, the Democrats could probably do worse than bringing Few’s collegues onto the fiscal subcommittee for their convention platform. To borrow an old line from Dave Sim, there isn’t a hooker alive who can abide giving credit.

    Doesn’t anyone remember the similarly themed scuttlebutt from the Republican convention in San Diego last time? The mixing of politicians, of any ideology, and sex is hardly a recent thing.

    Oh please. This cuts both ways:

    Guys, when did I exclude the Republicans?

    That said, if you don’t think it’s funny that hookers are descending en masse on a convention featuring Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy, there’s not much I can do for you.

    I think it’s funny! And they say Republicans are the ones that can’t take a joke!

  5. Jim in Virginia Says:

    C’mon- they’re not there for the politicians. They’re in town for all the reporters.

  6. Tom Says:

    No, they’re there as reporters. Reporter = whore, get it?

  7. Doug Says:

    Both political parties are subject to sin. It’s the Republican party with their superior Christian morals that makes me sick whenever they claim God is on their side. Born again my ass!

    It is a pity your life is so traumatized.

    Newcastle Australia, where I live, is a shipping town, for a long time associated with industries like steel and coal, etc. (That’s changing a bit now, though – we’re relying more on the dollars of incoming greeny do-gooders, now). Anyways, the Newcastle Herald a few weeks back held a similar story: seems when sailors came into port, a number of landlubbers (including doctors, musicians, etc) are inducted on board, amongst them several ‘masseuses’ (ie, whores). Good to know the world’s oldest profession is still going strong!
