Drinking Liberally — Seattle

DLBottlePlease join us Tuesday night for another evening of electoral politics under the influence as we watch the returns arrive from the Michigan and Arizona primaries. Yes…it’s another episode of the Seattle Chapter of Drinking liberally!

We meet every Tuesday at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E. Our regular starting time is 8:00pm, but feel free to show up earlier than that for the earliest election returns.

I’ll be live blogging the event.

Can’t make it to Seattle? There are also Tuesday meetings of the Tri-Cities and Bellingham chapters. The Tacoma chapter meets this Thursday. And next Monday, there are meetings of the Olympia, the Yakima, and the South Bellevue chapters.

With 229 chapters of Living Liberally, including twelve in Washington state and six more in Oregon, chances are excellent there’s one near you.

    Hopefully the folks in Maine will keep up their tradition of sending sane people to the US senate.

    One of the Senate’s few remaining Republican moderates shocked the political world on Tuesday and announced she would not seek re-election this year.

    Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe announced she would not seek a fourth term because she is tired of the polarization and partisanship that has permeated Washington in recent years.

    “Unfortunately, I do not realistically expect the partisanship of recent years in the Senate to change over the short term,” she said in a statement explaining her decision to retire.

    Harvard Denies Degrees To Expelled Gays

    “Harvard University says it will not award posthumous degrees to seven students expelled from the Ivy League school in 1920 because they were gay or perceived to be gay. ‘Harvard’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences does not award posthumous degrees except in the rare case of a student who completes all academic requirements for the degree but dies before the degree has been conferred,’ the university said in a statement.”

    Good news for Seattle Weekly’s favorite candidate for the GOP nomination:


    Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced the support of Washington Congressman Dave Reichert.

    “Congressman Reichert has served his community with distinction and it is an honor to have his support,” said Mitt Romney. “I look forward to working with him and the rest of my growing Washington team so that we can defeat President Obama and bring jobs back to Washington State.”

    Announcing his support, Congressman Reichert said, “Right now, we are missing real leadership in the White House. President Obama has had many failed policies over the last three years and Americans deserve better. Mitt Romney has been a successful leader and has shown that commonsense, real world experience can be used to turn around tough situations. Our economy and country need a new direction and I believe that Mitt Romney is the person with the background and skills to lead our country back on the right path. On March 3rd, I urge Washingtonians to support Mitt Romney – with a leader like him in the White House, we can be confident of a bright future.”

    I hope the Michiganians (Detroit Republicans actually) singing “uh, uh…” in the first video voted for Santorum.
