Want Your Relatives in Red States to See You Toasting Obama’s Victory Tonight?

posted by on November 4 at 12:41 PM

Then come on down to our election night party at the Showbox…


An ABC News correspondent will be reporting live from the Showbox tonight as results roll in. Ours is one of a handful of election night parties across the country at which ABC News has embedded a reporter—that’s their reporter, setting up right now. So do you have GOP-leaning family back in Bumfuck, Idaho, or Fuckwit, Indiana? Let ‘em see you partying your ass off tonight at the Showbox!

Omigod Dan I can't believe you posted something with that jinxy of a header.

And if Obama looses you can watch all the hipsters in Seattle kill themselves.

I'll probably be there around 6 or 7, hopefully there will still be people there around then since it might very well be decided by that point.

I love you Daniel, but PLEASE, everyone, give Indiana a break. Fuckwit, WA, exists...

Why are you smacking a state whose legislature voted down a proposed marriage ban and whose citizens may go Dem for the first time in 44 years?

just got back from the polls (long story to be expected - name not on list, wrong boxes checked, three nice people catering to my Aspergers leaning attempt)

but idea came in the midst:

first... ugh, what's the use?

Homer Simpson is gay! he grabbed ass cheek on the halloween special! Groening ala Harry Potter series outs Homer! Bumfuck Idaho declares bathroom stall 'Homer used this log to suck toetap!'

what's the use. Simpsons are on Faux channel. Aristotle Spool woulda been a proud amurrican.

We native-born Fuckwittians are a proud folk. Don't rile us.

I hope my gay Republican brother sees me celebrating!

And who doesn't? I mean, doesn't Seattle's urban core (Capital Hill, Belltown, etc.) consist primarily of transplants from red states, people who just couldn't take it anymore and left for the bluest of blue places they could find?

If you've got rightwing relatives out there that you've been avoiding talking about politics to, please, reach out to them. They're probably as depressed today as you are jubilant, so be considerate and respectful, but reach out to them to let them know that you don't think they're personally the enemy, and you're not the enemy either; the real enemy wants to segregate our country into red and blue -- and the more of us leave them out to dry by fleeing and never looking back, the redder those red states are going to get. Talk to your folks about conservatism, before it's too late.

I'll be staying in tonight, hiding from the mobs of enraged republicans and celebrating very quietly. It's what red state democrats do. Somebody there party for me, will ya?

Is it free to go? I'll bring my camera! :)

I think there are going to way more people there than the Showbox can hold. Better arrive early.
