Drinking Liberally… with Darcy Burner

The Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally meets tonight (and every Tuesday), 8PM at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E.

Joining us tonight will be the next congressperson from Washington’s 8th Congressional District, Darcy Burner, who has some exciting news to share about her first-quarter fundraising totals, and the role the “netroots” played in helping her exceed her target. Burner campaign manager Zach Silk told The Stranger’s Eli Sanders that “the blogosphere was instrumental in taking us to the next level,” and she’s coming to DL to thank us all personally.

Unfortunately, Burner won’t be able to join us on our weekly podcast, because producers Gavin and Richard have fled to Europe. So unless some kind-hearted stranger stops by with a shit-load of recording equipment, Podcasting Liberally is on a one-week hiatus.

In other DL news, our host Nicholas Beaudrot is offering free beer to volunteers with a high-powered staplegun willing to post up flyers promoting this weekend’s Seattle area stop on Markos & Jerome’s “Crashing the Gate” book tour. (FYI: Friday April 7, 7-9 pm at the Seattle Labor Temple, 2800 1st AVE, and Saturday April 8, 11:30am-2pm at Marymoor Park.) And of course, for those of you on the other side of the mountains, please join Jimmy at the Tri-Cities chapter of DL, every Tuesday from 5:30 onwards, Tuscany Lounge, 1515 George Washington Way, Richland.

    Roger Rabbit rarely attends DL because of Seattle Parks Department stalkers with traps and nets.

    “Yo” is a contraction of “Yahoo” (as in “trailer park yahoo”) and is properly spelled “Y’o.” Like most wingnuts, Y’o can’t even spell his own fucking name.

    Slade Gorton was a disgusting Indian-basher.

    Yossarian is a flatulent transmission belt of right-wing talking points.

    The Elite Left will be there to let everyone know that they plan to save the world using their own money. It’s a refreshing change.

    “Sherriff now Congressman Dave has nothing to fear.”

    Just like Senator now Private Citizen Slade Gorton, eh?

    Wayne-

    Slade Gorton has more perspective and smarts in his left pinky toenail than you have gathered in your lifetime. Besides, I would bet that a real count of single (not double or triple), legal, American citizen votes, etc. would show he trounced Maria Ne’erdowell.

    Gat a life.

    Slade is obsolete. At one time conservatives fought against rights for Native Americans. Now we have people like Jack Abramoff who rip ‘em off instead.

    I hear Gorton gets down and kinky when he’s wearing his yellow fishin’ slicker and sporting a seltzer bottle full of Mazzola.

    Tommy DeLay won’t be able to make it tonight. He’s practicing learning how to down VERY large round and pointy objects just in case.
