DNC: What’s the Damage?

So the DNC has come and gone. Promises were made by the candidates, whether or not they will come to pass remains to be seen. Whether or not the promises were nothing more than grandstanding, well only God knows.

Prior to what has to be one of the world’s largest pep rallies, the Democratic Party leadership made a promise of its own: to make the upcoming convention “the greenest convention in the history of the planet.” (See, “The DNC: It’s not easy being Green…”)

Well, ran across a piece which recounts the damage:
Democrats find ‘green’ political convention tough to enforce

They tried and tried mightily but the author concludes:

Let us stipulate that the Democratic Party, perhaps because it was good marketing or perhaps because it was a sound principle, made an effort to promote recycling here. But whopping huge mounds of trash remain unavoidable–and the presence of idling SUVs–show that the concept remains more of a slogan than reality. (Then again, probably the only way to hold a “green” convention is to do it entirely over the Internet.)

As for me, I’m just wondering how many of the attendees can echo Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s (below) famous pronouncement: “You know, I keeps a private jet”

While it is not easy being green, it is easy to be Money May.
