Aide: Chicago Not Interested In 2008 RNC

(AP) CHICAGO Thanks but no thanks.

That's Chicago's answer to an invitation to submit a bid to host the 2008 Republican National Convention.

The Republican National Committee said yesterday that Chicago and 30 other cities were selected to submit bids explaining why they'd be a good choice to host the 2008 convention.

But a spokeswoman for Mayor Richard Daley says City Hall isn't interested.

Jackie Heard says city officials are more focused on whether to pursue a campaign to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.

Chicago hosted the Democratic National Convention in 1996.

Hope they get the Olympics. They are hosting the Gay Games in July. That should be HOT!

I know I'm hella excited. It'll be cool that they're so close to me. 30 minutes to all the queers when they're in town.

Purely as a spectator, I think. I'm off all week from work and will be downtown for college graduation. Maybe I'll treat myself to a Euro hottie for a graduation pressie.

Mmmm, Venezuelan soccer boys... Those kind seem to get me in trouble. [/Manuel flashback]. Yeah we should hangout. Not sure what events I'll go to. Depends on weather, but most likely beach volleyball stuff. I love a tall boy in dirty sand.
