Fish House: GOP HQ

January 26, 2008

If you’re a GOP presidential candidate and you need to be where the GOP’s wine, dine and plot their next coup…and you need $$$, you must hold a rally at The Fish House. To date, Fred Thompson, Rudy Guiliani and now Mike Huckabee (Monday, Jan. 28, 8 am). McCain has eaten there several times.

Owners Collier Merrill and his brothers do there best to accommodate the politicians. Democrats -notably U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson – have also done some politicking there.

The Fish House has replaced McGuire’s Irish Politicians Club as the political nexus of the community. It’s more open to the public and more fun.

    I find it rather telling that with all the big shots at the Fish House including Morning Joe and his crowd form New York City, McCoy hasn’t been invited to a single event and none of the major players has been on his show.

    Oh well, Lukester still has Jeff Miller, oh wait a sec, they broke up over John McCain. Oh well, at least the Luke-a-nator still has Ji, Beam to fall back on!
