Dressing up the GOP? Try gold sandals and pink punch

An elephant-shaped fountain serves drinks to attendees at the Republican Party’s gathering in Bellevue (Lynda Mapes / The Seattle Times).

So how do you dress up the party, Republican style?

Well, there are the pink blazers and gold sandals. (“You look like a golfer! Sooo cute!”) And then there’s the decor: Heavy on the red, white and blue — from the balloons to the sheet cakes with frosting piped on in a nice rendition of Old Glory.

To be sure, that was kind of expected.

The sensibly-sized chocolate cupcakes — cut that fat and waste! — of course.  Sam Adams beer, that was a natural.

But a fountain spouting pink punch out of an elephant’s trunk —  that was a special touch.

“Never seen that before,” said Joel Hussey, candidate for Position 1 in the 45th District state House race, who gamely caught the spouting pink punch in a plastic glass and swallowed it down.

“Safe and sane,” he said, without even flinching.
