Super Tuesday Drinking Liberally Seattle

Please join us on this Super Tuesday for an evening of electoral politics under the influence at 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 tonight some of us will be there earlier to watch the election returns.

I’ll be live blogging at HA from the Ale House.

Can’t make it to Seattle? There is also a Super Tuesday meeting tonight of the Tri-Cities chapter. And on Thursday, Drinking Liberally Bremerton meets.

With 231 chapters of Living Liberally, including twelve in Washington state and six more in Oregon, chances are excellent there’s one near you.

    Just waiting for the first reports, which should show Virginia for Romney (everyone else of consequence didn’t make the ballot); Georgia for Gingrich (it’s his home state). We will have to wait a bit longer for the other states (Ohio, Tennesse, etc.) becuase all or parts of them are on Central Time.

    The media will make it all about Ohio, because it’s too close to call there between Romney and Santorum.

    It’s about time to put the popcorn on.

    Roger Rabbit’s Tuesday News Roundup

    Item #1: Guns Don’t Kill People Dep’t

    A teacher fired by a private school went back to the school with an AK-47 and shot the headmaster then himself. But hey, Wisconsin Republicans still think anyone should be able to get a military assault rifle without a background check and carry it anywhere without a permit.

    Item #2: Cheap Labor Dep’t

    The Indianapolis Colts fired Peyton Manning today and replaced him with a 17-year-old hamburger flipper recruited from McDonald’s. The kid doesn’t throw as good, but he works for $7 an hour. Okay, I made part of this up, but I didn’t make up the fact this is about wages.


    Item #3: We’re Not Davy Crockett’s America Anymore Dep’t

    A woman was arrested for painting her nails on an airplane because the flight attendants objected to the nail polish smell.


    Roger Rabbit Commentary: If a flight attendant tells you to stay in your seat and pee in your pants, just shut up and do it, because arguing with a flight attendant will get you thrown in jail. There are third world dictators who envy the power we’ve given to flight attendants.

    Item #4: A Young Wife Weeps

    A Green Beret recently home from Afghanistan was killed today in a vain attempt to save his two young daughters from a house fire.

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: He was one of our finest and our nation will miss him. I say give him the Soldier’s Medal.

    Item #5: If It’s Legal, You Can Do It

    A 66-year-old Newport Beach, California, man who still has the 1929 Model A he drove to high school also has a 100-year-old sailing ship in his backyard. Apparently there’s no zoning law against it, so his whining neighbors should just shut up, because being an American means having freedom to do as you please. Especially on your own property.

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: I wouldn’t be surprised if Newport Beach changes its zoning laws soon.

    Item #6: In Memoriam

    Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ) has died.

    Item #7: Shove This Job Dep’t

    Now that hiring is picking up, employers who squeezed workers during the recession by making them work harder for less pay are going to give the extra profits (and then some) back in the form of higher recruitment and training costs.

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: You should have exactly as much loyalty to your employer as he has to you, no more or less.

    Well, that didn’t take long. Huffington Post is declaring Romney the winner in Virginia (where he was the only major candidate), and Gingrich the winner in Georgia (his home state). Of course, those were no-brainers. You gotta think that Gingrich is still kicking himself for not making sure that there were enough signatures on his petition to make the Virginia ballot.

    I’m assuming Massachusetts will go for Romney as well, since he was governor there. It would be awfully embarrasing if Romney didn’t win Massachussetts.

    But the only race the TV will care about will be Ohio.

    Roger Rabbit had surgery yesterday and couldn’t attend DL tonight. It appears RR survived the surgery, so any trolls hoping for Roger Rabbit’s demise are fucked.
