Please join us tonight for an evening of politics over a pint at the Seattle Chapter of Drinking Liberally.

We meet every Tuesday at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E. Starting time is 8:00pm. Some people show up earlier for Dinner.





Can’t make it to Seattle tonight? Check out one of the other DL meetings over the next week. Tonight the Tri-Cities chapter meets. And for Thursday, the Spokane chapter and Drinking Liberally Tacoma meet.

With 230 chapters of Living Liberally, including fourteen in Washington state, four in Oregon, and three more in Idaho, chances are excellent there’s a chapter that meets near you.

There’s a “purge” going on:

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/12/right-fears-purge-as-gop-leadership-takes-control.php?ref=fpa

The Republicans are taking a few laxatives..

Good to see but the “nuts” tend to stay lodged in the old right wing colon.

Oh wingnuts, what will you do?

That GD Kenyan Mooselum Socialist (and now TWO TIME!) Usurper hangs the carrot of tax cuts for the wealthy out there for you.

“Let’s let tax rates on the upper-income folks go up,” Obama said. “. . . And then let’s set up a process with a time certain, at the end of 2013 or the fall of 2013, where we work on tax reform, we look at what loopholes and deductions both Democrats and Republicans are willing to close. And it’s possible that we may be able to lower rates . . . at that point.”

See, all you got to do is come forward with those pesky loopholes you are willing to close and you get your Christmas wish.

We won’t hold our breath, but Liberals love watching our President eat your lunch.

Speaking of wingnuts, where are our trolls?
Where’s Uncle Puddles? Where’s Kap’n Kornflake?

Don’t they know about the BENGHAZI! Scandal?


Pop quiz: Who said this about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, shortly after it happened?

“The violence in Benghazi coincided with an attack on the United States Embassy in Cairo, Egypt, which was also swarmed by an angry mob of protestors on September 11, 2012.”

Was it U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice?

No, it was the United States Senate.

The Senate passed a resolution the day after the attack in Benghazi, on Sept. 12, S. Res. 551. The resolution was updated and passed again Sept. 22 to add the names of those who had died. The original resolution and the update were approved by “Unanimous Consent,” meaning that all 100 senators were officially listed as sponsors or co-sponsors.

Idiots. LOL

Oh noes! The Teabaggers have lost their Dick Army! Hold on to your tri-corner hat!

(Reuters) – President Barack Obama held his ground on the “fiscal cliff” on Tuesday, insisting on higher tax rates for the wealthiest Americans, while Republicans showed increasing disarray over how far they should go to compromise with Obama’s demands.

Republican’s in disarray being the key bit. I’m having fun watching the crazy’s on the right do their circular firing squad routine.

6. MikeBoyScout spews:

@5 The Democratic leadership learned from the campaign and the election that Republicans are not only ignorant slur slingers, but dumb as rocks. And as long as the polls show acceleration of support for the Democrats they’re going to play their policy and their political hand to the hilt.

The panic and disarray is just beginning.

Jennifer Rubin’s Awesome Advice

It’s nice of J-Rube to try to help the Republicans but her advice sucks. Before I say a single word about her 10 tips for the Tan Man, I want to make this clear: the Republicans cannot win this fight in the court of public opinion. We just had an election. The president campaigned on what is asking for now. The public has seen enough inflexibility from the Republicans and they will never blame the president over the Republicans if we go over the fiscal cliff and begin to suffer economic problems as a consequence.

That is why Rubin’s first piece of advice is so dumb. She wants Republicans to complain about the consequences for national security if we go over the fiscal cliff. But telling people that going over the cliff will be awful and get them killed is a very bad idea if the people are going to blame you for going over the cliff. This is why the Democrats should stop downplaying the consequences of going over the cliff and start hyping the consequences. The more the public fears the cliff, the more pressure they will bring to bear on the Republicans and the more blame they will place on them later if no deal is reached.

Rubin’s second piece of advice is to avoid talking about the filibuster reforms Harry Reid is kicking around and keep focused on the White House. The problem with this is that the Republicans can’t win in a battle with the White House, so focusing on them is unhelpful.

Read the whole thing. It’s a good belly laugh.

@7
Thanks, I’ll check that out.

It looks like the “spammers” from HA have shut down all of the threads at (un)SP. It’d be easier to just ban everybody that doesn’t agree with them.

10. MikeBoyScout spews:

@9 Steve,
The (un)SP wing nuts are hiding in their holes.
Fudge Packer Liar! has been MIA for a month since he helped run John the rape thing Koster’s “horrible” campaign in to the ground.

Roger Ailes wasn’t too impressed with Karl Rove and Dick Morris’ antics on election night and the day afterwards. Both are now booted off of Fox News, and producers need special permission before booking them as guests.

I guess they weren’t subtle enough for Fox News. They made it clear that they thought this election was bought and paid for, and were flumoxed when Romney was defeated.

14. Liberal Scientist is a Dirty Fucking Socialist Hippie spews:

@9,10

Did pudgey actually have an official role with the Koster campaign?

I just looked – of the three posts on their front page (3!), the first and third, both by Jim “the Censor” Miller, are closed. The second is open, but there is that weird spam they draw (real spam) showing up, and the last real post was a doozy by Rags with about a million links, some about how the NRA defends African Americans against racist Southern Democrats.

It’s really quite pathetic.
