This has got to be the silliest piece of news all week: San Francisco has been invited to bid on hosting the Republican National Convention in 2008. We're sure it was token invitation, like "we're inviting you because we're sure you'll be out of town" or just something to make Charlotte Maillard Shultz happy. It's not so much a case of are there enough hotel rooms (yes!) enough fabulous venues (yes!) and great caterers (yes!) but really more like are there enough squats in the Mission to house the rioters?

Can't they just do it in Sacramento?
