Because of the federal budget sequester, our meetings will be 5% shorter through August 2013. Please adjust your drinking accordingly.
Jon Stewart explains how the tea party and its aficionados will use the IRS kerfuffle to defend the patently absurd tax status of 501(c)4 organizations. And did you know that simply apologizing to the IRS can settle things? I did not know that.
39% of the people who think that "Benghazi is the biggest scandal in American history" don't know where Benghazi is. Hint: it's just north of Western Dawud.
Here's an interesting map of hate speech in the U.S. derived from twitter traffic. Los Angeles looks relatively hate free! But what is up with Lake Tahoe?

Join us tonight for fun, laughter, and the occasional political discussion.
Warning -- a apolitical link: Kids trying new foods in super slow motion. That's pretty much how I reacted to my first sip of Budweiser all those many beers ago.

See you tonight and check your guns at the door.

Did anybody catch Obama's press conference today? If only being rational and logical were enough to lead a country. (sigh)
Okay, this isn't political, but if you haven't seen Nicholas Nixon's portraits of his wife and her sisters, you should.
Raise your hands if you would quit Drinking Liberally if it was purchased by the Koch brothers. The L.A. Times staff might be facing this decision.
The majority of poor Americans who will benefit from Obamacare don't even realize that it is a law. On the other hand, the national media is doing a terrific job of keeping us abreast of the Kardashian pregnancy.
Is anybody interested in managing our Facebook page? Please respond to this email or talk to me on Wednesday.

As I have seen many episodes of Law & Order, I was getting a bit miffed at the refusal of the authorities to read the Miranda Rights to the Boston Bomber. Ken White at Popehat has a nice roundup of the reactions. See also his analysis of the Tsarnaev complaint.
See you tonight.
