Democrats and suds – again

Last week one of my blog items got progressive Democrats accused of bribing young folks with beer to doorbell for Tacoma City Council candidate Marilyn Strickland.

That brought assurances that only responsible, post-doorbelling beer-drinking would be allowed and IDs would be scrupulously checked to protect the innocence of minors. But here’s more evidence that Democrats – some, anyway – like to mix politics and beer.

Turns out Drinking Liberally, a national organization “promoting democracy one pint at a time,” has a Tacoma chapter. The group’s next meeting is Oct. 17 at Meconi’s Pub, 709 Pacific Ave. Contact info here.

I doubt you’d want to show up wearing your “Mitt in ’08” button. If there’s a Drinking Conservatively group around, let me know.
