Inside the GOP Florida Debate's Swag Bag

I got sunshine in a bag

Wonkette operative Lauren Selsky just picked up her GOP debate gift bag in Boca Raton. What do you get for going to a Republican debate these days? Let's find out!

When I picked up my media credentials from FAU/Leadership Florida this afternoon, they also handed out this nice "swag bag." I doubt it compares to the Oscars, but at least I won't be taxed for it. Here's what's inside the nifty little canvas bag with "Florida Decision 2008" printed on the front:

* Folder with information about Florida: elections, news, rising property taxes, etc.

* National Opinion Ballot Report book (good read).

* Pocket New Testament. (Okay, that's a lie. However, someone did hand me one of those yesterday.)

* Note pad.

* Hand Sanitizer.

* "Decision 2008" button.

* "Welcome to Palm Beach County" pamphlet.

* Card with the "benefits of chewing gum" explained on the back.

Plus, sustenance:

Donkey Kong

* Red, White and Blue M&M's with what look like Donkeys on the front, which is weird because this is a Republican debate.

* Container of Jolt mints (5 mints = 1 cup o' Joe).

* Cliff Bar.

* Pomegranate Jelly Bellys.

* Pack of Extra-brand gum.

Maybe tomorrow I'll get a voucher for the school cafeteria!

Yr Wonkette has been getting quite a few visits from trolls lately, although most of the infestations have been incredibly tiresome and not at all worth discussing here. We're talking, like, not even as good as ol' Turgid Love Muscle Guy. Come to think of it, we haven't seen him in a while; hope he's OK. At least health-wise.

In 2006, Bob Casey Jr., then the Pennsylvania state treasurer, defeated Rick Santorum and took his seat in the US Senate; presumably only after having it steam cleaned. Not that Casey wanted anything much to do with Dan Savage, the columnist who had helpfully made the alternative definition of "Santorum" one of the best demonstrations of the power of trolling for the prior three years. But in '06, Casey's campaign actually declined a donation from Savage; Casey's finance director thanked him, but suggested maybe Savage could give the money to a group working against Santorum so Casey wouldn't get flak for taking the donation. That was back when Dems were happy to talk about civil unions but frightened of gay marriage, and Casey just plain wussed out on the chance to bring a "weeks-long debate about feces, lube, and assfucking" to the Senate race, as then-Wonket Dave Weigel put it. But Bob Casey has come rather a long way since then, and he now supports marriage equality. He might still be a bit shy about a full-on embrace of buttsechs talk, however.
