Baron Hill to visit this Thursday’s meeting of Drinking Liberally at the Public House.

I have learned that Democratic congressional hopeful Baron Hill will make an appearance during the weekly meeting of Drinking Liberally (New Albany & Southern Indiana) this Thursday evening at 7:00 p.m. at Rich O’s Public House.

Hill’s bid to recapture his seat in a third epic electoral slugging match with Mike Sodrel is being watched throughout the country as a key indicator in the mid-term election.

In expectation of a larger than usual turnout for Drinking Liberally, we’ll be moving the meeting to the Prost special events room. DL organizer Lacy Davis has given me the okay to spread the word, and all readers are cordially invited.

As a counterweight, albeit small, to the prevailing crackpot sentiments of theocratic fascism washing over Indiana's (and the nation’s shores), I’m delighted to host the group and the candidate, and to serve Progressive Pints to those in attendance.

As a reminder, Drinking Liberally is:

An informal, inclusive Democratic drinking club. 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.

Bars are democratic spaces - you talk to strangers, you share booths, you feel the bond of common ground. Bring democratic discourse to your local democratic space - build Democracy one drink at a time.

Once, while married to my last wife, my wife and I went to Rich O's and a DL visiting group happend to be @ Rich O's that night. She was not enterested but since I am a member of DL of Indianapolis, Cinncinnati, Saint Louis, Orlando and Anchorage. Oh yeah, Louisville, I was so excited to watch the fun I had trouble staying in my seat. Maybe if I meet the Southern Indiana group I will want to attend local meetings often. On a political note, I received a flyer address to current resident that said Barron endorses crime, violence, sex and drugs exploited through video games. It was an ugly example of my friend Millionaire Mike stooping to wasted manure slinging. I feel the voters awoke from their superstitions since 2004. We as baby boomers are accustom to drugs sex and rock and roll. I would not want my young kids to see the promotion, it was disgusting. I am sick of hearing the republicans telling me Gods gonna send me to hell if I do not hate the same people republicans hate. I am convinced Mr. Hill will get my vote but I want to hear him say his positive upbeat campaign speech. No matter what the outcome, Barron is a winner.
