It’s been announced that Charlotte, North Carolina will be the host city for next year’s Democratic Convention.

Michelle Obama just personally informed me in an email — I feel so special:

Doug —

I am thrilled to make sure you are the first to hear some very exciting news. Charlotte, North Carolina, will host the 46th Democratic National Convention in 2012.

The First Lady also told me to stop eating so many french fries, but that’s neither here nor there.

The name the Dems are going with for the convention helps set the tone:


A little bit more about the “People’s Convention”:

The People’s Convention was a “people’s government” that was proposed by communist elements in the United Kingdom in 1940–1941. Its advocates attempted to persuade Labour Party and trade union members that the current government was solely for the rich and was dominated by those who through appeasement had “caused” the Second World War, who opposed the Soviet Union, and who were profiteering from the war. Its literature did not, however, explicitly state that it was communist-backed.

Oh wait, that was a different People’s Convention. More info on the North Carolina People’s Convention is here. Sorry for the mix up.

By the way, the MSM’s already starting to rap the DNC for choosing a right-to-work state:

Andrea Mitchell invited on DNC Chairman Tim Kaine, on Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, to announce the Democrats have picked Charlotte, North Carolina to host their 2012 convention but the MSNBC host couldn’t resist hitting Kaine from the left as she scolded Democrats for selecting a right-to-work state. Mitchell, taking up for Big Labor, even challenged Kaine: “I defy you to find a labor hotel for these delegates, for all the AFL-CIO folks coming to Charlotte.”
