The worst paragraph written about Tampa Bay hosting the Republican National Convention was authored, not surprisingly, by Chris Ingram for the Tampa Tribune:
“As locals know, it is miserably hot and humid in August. It’s so hot we could retire the national debt in a matter of weeks if Congress passed a “Tourist Perspiration Tax” on every gallon of sweat exuded by visitors during our hot summer months — that is, if they came in droves like they do in the winter.”
“It’s so hot…” Really? Who is Ingram’s target audience? The Borscht Belt?
And the imagery from his preposterous idea of a “Tourist Perspiration Tax” is just gross.
It’s amazing to me they still let this guy have a column.
