Minneapolis Tour Tips

David Carr and I give tips to Republicans about where to hang out in Minneapolis during RNC. And we sing "Bastards of Young," sorta. And I break the news that Carr is drinking again, or at least seemingly so. UPDATE: the director's cut from Rachel on HuffPo.


(Of course, he was actually sober. But he acts sorta drunk all the time.)

We are the sons of no one. NO ONE. I can only shake my head in disappointment.

The joke is that Carr wants us to sing it as "sons of Norway." Apparently this is something he and his buddies did.

I'm so fucking jealous. I'd tell you to drink Premium but last time I was home I could barely get through a bottle. I used to think that stuff was delicious?!?

Instead, please bring back some Summit and then invite me over to drink it.

Wow, what genius that you completely forgot to mention conceived of, directed, filmed and uploaded this? I MADE YOU A STAR AND THIS IS WHAT I GET? You'll never eat lunch in this town again! (p.s. Where's a good place to go for lunch in this town?)

I was trying to hide the CONFLICT OF INTEREST sign on my back.

Is that a CONFLICT OF INTEREST sign on your back or are you just glad to see me?

(Rex has a very talented back.)

My image of Denver was a video of cute girls eating cupcakes.

My image of Minneapolis is an angry, drunken old man wagging his finger at the camera.

A fitting metaphor for the Republican Party.

Carry on.

Hope someone actually gave you places to go while here. Just the media though, keep the Republicans in St. Paul. By the way, they messed with the Premium recipe for a while, but it has been restored again to whomever asked about that.
