Vince politely tells Dianne Feinstein and Robert Bennett to fuck off:

While I respect the views of Senators Feinstein and Bennett, having venues available for residents and visitors alike in which to spend time during the Inaugural celebrations for President-Elect Barack Obama will provide entertainment options in organized settings for people.

The legislation passed by Council of the District of Columbia last week to extend the hours that alcoholic beverages can be served in bars, nightclubs and restaurants is not unprecedented. On New Year’s Eve, a night of large crowds and celebrations, the city allows alcoholic beverages to be served until 4 AM. And, current law permits the sale of alcoholic beverages until 3 AM on Friday and Saturday nights.

However, I look forward to further dialogue with the Senators on this issue, as we work together to make this the best inaugural experience in our nation’s history.
