The Troy Michigan Democratic Club sponsored a forum last night called, “At Peace with Politics: Yoga for Kerry.” According to the Detroit Free Press:
“People who practice yoga are almost always Democrats,” said Priyanka Shanbag, a yoga teacher from Bloomfield Hills who will instruct at the event, which will be at Troy’s community center.
“There’s a lot of compassion there. It’s about doing the right thing.”
Ouch. The head of Troy’s Republican club is NOT going to like that at all. What’s Goray Mookerjee got to say?
“We need a real truthful commander in chief who has the guts and determination to do the job,” Mookerjee said.
“He doesn’t need any yoga training.”
And his party argues that yoga will persuade its practitioners to vote for George W. Bush.
I think we need to find a master Yogi to weigh in on this debate or things could get messy in Troy.
