On civil disobedience, the Project Mayhem Way

Heh. Amusingly enough, I had the following conversation yesterday:

(to a guest making a reservation at the Rihga Royal NYC)

Me: "Are you with any groups or conventions?"
Guy: "I'm with the Republican National Convention."
Me: "...Okay, the best rate I have available for you is a one bedroom suite at the rate $400/night." (while checking off "near elevator" and unchecking his preference for a quiet room)

(to a guest making a reservation at the NYC Marriott Marquis, same dates)
Me: "Are you with any groups or conventions?"
Guy: "I'm a democrat. Does that get me a discount."
Me: "Don't I just wish."
