Slaughtered Goats at a DNC fundraiser?

A Democratic fundraiser sparked a major controversy by using a freshly slaughtered goat to raise money.

The nearly decapitated animal was the centrepiece of a party to celebrate the launch of the new campaign theme, "What would you do to get a Democrat in the White House"

"How about eating still warm intestines uncoiled from the carcass of a freshly slaughtered goat?

Guests at the event were invited to reach inside the goat’s still-warm carcass to eat offal from its stomach.

The GOP condemned the DNC, and said the grotesque "sacrifice" highlighted increasing concerns over the the ugliness of the campaign and the lengths to which the DNC will go to garner votes.

At the event, guests competed to see who could eat the most offal – procured elsewhere and intended to resemble the goat’s intestines – from its stomach.

They also threw knives at targets and pulled live snakes from a pit with their bare hands. (Guns were banned from the event.)

Bill Clinton added topless girls dipping grapes into guests’ mouths to the louche atmosphere.

The International Fund for Animal Welfare said it was "outrageous" that the animal’s death had been used "to drive voter registration".

A spokesperson for the animal welfare group said: "We are always opposed to any senseless killing of an animal and this sounds like a gruesome death. We condemn the DNC's actions. It is stupid and completely unjustified."

Nancy Pelosi describes the '08 campaign as "an adult-rated, fast-paced bloodbath – and enormous fun to boot", adding that it will be "bigger, better and as brutal as ever".

Of course I kid. A respectable group like the DNC led by Howard Dean would never dip so low to garner votes. That is as far fetched as a venerable brand like SONY pulling a stunt like this.

What? Sony actually held a similar event in Athens, Greece to launch the new violent video game God of War II last week.

I guess the DNC and SONY do have something in common. They both contribute to the moral decay of Conservative Kids.
