Quincy Republicans Holiday Social
Democrats love to joke that local Republicans hold their meetings in phone booths. Not so last night, when 35 local Republicans gathered to celebrate the season at the Fox & Hound Wood Grille & Tavern.
It wasn’t a meeting or a strategy session — just a chance for local conservatives to meet, get to know one another and have a good time. In addition to enjoying a terrific buffet (thank you, Fox & Hound!), attendees took part in a political/current events trivia contest, winning small prizes for answering such brain teasers as “What beauty pageant title did Sarah Palin once hold?” (Answer: Miss Wasilla) and “Name the last five mayors of Quincy beginning with our current mayor and working backwards.” (Answer: Koch, Phelan, Sheets, McCauley and Tobin.)
Among the prizes: A bumper sticker that read “Proud to be everything liberals can’t stand!”; a GOP Christmas ornament emblazoned with “Republicans: Working hard so you don’t have to!”; several “Proud to be a Republican” buttons and a “Proud Republican” t-shirt. (Notice a theme here?)
