Relive the best night of the 21st Century!

Last night Drunk of the Week photographer Kelly O, former Party Crasher Ari Spool and I stopped by all the Seattle and Eastside political parties, snagging interviews as the polling numbers came in. The highlight? We convinced Stranger cult-hero Hugh Foskett to ditch the Republicans’ dapper soiree and come roll with us for an hour. Turns out the famous photo of our favorite frat boy vomiting in the sombrero was not due to alcohol consumption — that’s right, he’s vomiting milk in that snapshot and is completely sober! Does that make it even more embarrassing?

Check out that steamy footage and other short videos from the night!

Exclusive (red hot!) interview with Hugh Foskett and the Hugh Foskett Fan Club at the Eastside Republican Party in the Bellevue Hyatt.

New State Senator Rodney Tom discussing his campaign, his volunteers and (repeatedly) education, transportation and health care.

Christine Gregoire at the Dem’s ($7 beer) Bash at the Sheraton discussing the most successful legislative session in history (in! history!) and the Message From America.

Former Stranger staffer Sandeep Kaushik of the NO ON I-920 campaign talks about blowouts, The Children and a hypothetical mega-party at the Frank Blethen estate.

Karen Deal of the NO ON I-933 campaign talks about coalitions, farmers, coalitions, soundbites and coalitions.

Rep. Jay Inslee on “If you want to go to Heaven, vote for I-937” and other parts of the “optimistic” renewable energy campaign.

Rodney Tom still looks creepily like Jimmy Cooper from The O.C.

Hugh Fosket's gay, right?

Nice to see that Foskett is such a good sport.

P.S. Where's the centerfold?

Is that Savage in the Fan Club t-shirt? I had no idea he was so nipply!

"who'da thunk it?" "tendentious"?! kaushik's dreamy.

Hugh Foskett is a great sport, I applaud his efforts and for keeping it light hearted.

Posted by Monique | November 8, 2006 1:06 PM

For the record, those are not my nipples. I am nipply, but those aren't mine.

"I'm doing everything I can in the hot springs..."

Great clip with Hugh Foskett. I'm glad that he saw the whole Stranger fascination with him for what it was-- just fun. Good for him for playing along. Humor goes a long way; maybe he will have a future in politics.

Yes, Foskett.

Holy crap, Hugh is a hottie! (despite being a Republican)
