To those of you wondering where I was. I just took a small break from blogging (one day). I was out late last night (by my standards 1o:30 PM is late.. ya I am old codger now) ;). So I slept in late and am now up and nothing like blogging with a hot cuppa chai tea!
I was at our local chapter of drinking liberally. A lot of progressive folks don't know about this, so here is a bit from their site.
So our Delaware chapter had it's 3rd event (my first.. so I was a drinking liberally virgin as were a couple of other folks). I got to meet a bunch of fine, funny, intelligent and politically aware folks.
An informal, inclusive progressive social group. Raise your spirits while you raise your glass, and share ideas while you share a pitcher. Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place to talk politics. You don't need to be a policy expert and this isn't a book club - just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, vent frustration and hang out in an environment where it's not taboo to talk politics.
There were about 25-30 people at the iron hill brewery. It included people running for office, and folks working on their campaigns as well as some of the DE bloggers who I got to meet personally like Delawareliberal, donviti and tommywonk.
It was fun and I hope to be a regular at future events.
If any of you are wondering, it's easy to find a chapter in your neighborhood or even start your own.
Thanks to Jason and the anonymous Mark for the pitchers of beer and unnamed folks for the finger food!
Donviti's take on the event here.
Uses For Endangered GOP Congressmen...
You know those endangered republican congressmen in a rush to distance themselves from 'W'. There is some use for them. With credit to Joe Snitty at whose site I found it..
10. They’re naturally full of manure, so you can bury one in your garden for better tomato(e)s.
9. Tight buttocks can be used as vice grips in home improvement projects. (Warning: Could come loose unexpectedly in the presence of congressional pages.)8. They’re spineless, so if you’re strong enough you can crack one like a bullwhip.
7. Strap them to Humvees as supplemental armor.
6. Their brain pans are too small to use at a skull keg party, but they do make great shot glasses.5. If you pose as a military contractor or oil lobbyist, they’ll perform fellatio on demand.
4. Cover one with papier-mache and take it to a gathering of Young Republicans as a Bill Clinton pinata. It’s a hoot when they realize there’s no candy inside.
3. Make great male escorts at nursing homes, since they love screwing the elderly.
2. They’ll watch your teenage son for free while you’re out of town.1. If you put one’s freshly-extracted heart in a cooler, it’ll keep your beer cold for almost a week.
