Denver’s homeless will need to find a new place to loiter when the Democratic National Convention comes to town next month. The city plans to bribe them to stay away, or at least out of sight, with movie tickets & zoo passes

So much for the party of inclusion.

But officials insist they’re not “hiding the homeless,” they’re “housing them.” Jamie Van Leeuwen, head of Denver’s Road Home, defended the plan saying “Homeless veterans get very scared when there are lots of helicopters and lots of guns. And there’s going to be a lot of that here.”

I know politicians are a detestable bunch, but comparing them to the Viet Cong? And “housing” the homeless by sending them to the zoo… where have I heard that before (see video right).
