2008 Life of the Party
posted by October 31 at 15:42 PMon
We’re getting ready for election night here at Slog. Our intrepid intern Aaron Pickus is calling the campaigns, pinpointing the Republicans’ election night parties, and heeding warnings that we “may not be very welcome there because your coverage hasn’t been very nice.” Okay, so we revealed that Rob McKenna’s a trannie—what’s the big deal? Our drunken scribes will be dispatched to those conservative carnivals, and if things go really well, one of us will get kicked out of another victory wake.
But we’ll also be at the campaign parties for things we support. And now, in an effort to reach out to local Republicans, we’d like to prove we can be mean to everybody. The election-night party for Initiative 1000—the initiative that would, if approved, legalize physician-assisted suicide (a.k.a. “death with dignity”) in Washington state—is holding its party at, of all possible venues, Rock Bottom. Gee, there’s a bar whose name is all death and no dignity. Will they be serving mind erasers and pouring Dead Guy Ale?
So if you’re near a computer on Tuesday night, check in for constant updates on all the big races, little races, and the dead parties.
UPDATE: In comments, Hey Wait asks, “Will there be WiFi at the Stranger Showbox party so that I can read Slog updates from the other parties?” Yes!
