Though John McCain called for toned down convention festivities in light of Hurricane Gustav, it seems someone forgot to tell the rest of the GOP. In the clip above, conventioneers are seen dancing awkwardly to Cyndi Lauper and hiding their faces from the cameras with pink feather boas. Today Good Morning America reported that corporate and lobbyist funded parties celebrating the RNC were in full swing this weekend, including a party sponsored by the NRA, Lockheed Martin, and the American Trucking Association that featured a band called "Hookers and Blow." (But rest assured, the accompanying article notes, "there was no evidence of any actual prostitutes or cocaine" at the party.) Lest you think that ABC News is unfairly targeting GOP partygoers, you can check out their coverage of parties at the DNC last week as part of their series The Money Trail.
