The world's oldest profession

I got an email today in praise of my site from this blogger who says she is a New York City escort. She tells her readers that during the recent Republican National Convention, delegates loved New York in more ways than one:

Politics aside, business was good this week - I met a bunch of red-blooded clients from the red states at all hours of the day and night. The only opportunities to really rest came during the prime time hours when the speakers were at the convention.

Most of the Republicans weren't too bad either. They were like a lot of the guys I've met at other conventions - normally nice suburban dads who play when their wives are away. From their reactions at seeing me, though, my guess is that the women in the red states aren't nearly as hot as the women in NYC!

My only real complaint is that a lot of the Republicans were lame tippers. Maybe they're not used to dealing with escorts or maybe people in the Midwest or South are just stingier, but a lot of these guys just didn't give me any tip.

Did you ever get the feeling that maybe she just wants you to link to her website, so she can charge more for the ad rates?

Who cares? I didn't post that so I could brag that she liked my site. I was just explaining how I found it.

J-man, this PR dribble just passed through. I've been trying to think which Irish-American politician, considered so important just a year or so ago, is missing... Hmmmm... He was a local guy...

Was he the Mayor????? So, instead of Mayor Thomas Murphy hosting Kerry at the Irish Festival this weekend, you have that ever-so-Gaelic Jack Wagner.

Is Tom Murphy such a pariah that he's not even asked to glad-hand at a Kerry stop? Where has Murphy been throughout this entire campaign? Why does the Kerry team treat him like Dick Cheney?

Pennsylvania Kerry-Edwards Campaign Announces Irish Americans For Kerry

Thousands of Irish Americans Across the State Join Kerry

Philadelphia, PA – On Sunday, September 12th, thousands of Irish Americans from across the state will endorse John Kerry and John Edwards. Special guests will join the campaign to launch Irish Americans for Kerry at rallies in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Scranton and the Lehigh Valley.

The honorary co-chairs for the Pennsylvania Irish Americans for Kerry are Auditor General Bob Casey, Congressman Mike Doyle, Congressman Bob Brady, Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chair and State Representative T.J. Rooney, and State Senator Jack Wagner who are supported by more than a hundred steering committee members from across the state.

More than 38 million Americans claim Irish ancestry and Pennsylvania has one of the largest Irish American populations in the country. Roughly one in six Pennsylvanians are Irish American.

I'm guessing that either the local or state Democratic committee advised Kerry not to associate himself with Murphy. Either that or it was Murphy's decision. It's hard to imagine Kerry and his national team pay enough attention to Pittsburgh politics to know what's going on here on their own, but I could be wrong.

It is odd only because Murphy is indeed the sitting mayor. And all in all he hasn't had too bad a summer.
