Drinking Liberally Shot of Truth

On January 26th, Steve Timmer, one of the hosts of Drinking Liberally Minneapolis (and St. Paul) presented Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak with a DL T-shirt to recognize R.T.'s friendship with our chapter over the years. He has spoken to the group several times, and he helped us welcome visitors to Netroots Nation last summer with a special NN edition of Drinking Liberally that also featured Lizz Winstead and Thom Hartmann as guests.
R.T. is currently the Vice Chair of the Democratic National Committee, and in that capacity made an appearance at the Sioux City Drinking Liberally chapter for a Republican debate watch before the Iowa caucuses.
Share with us your stories of how your Liberally chapter has helped your community, or what you love about being a member of Living Liberally.

Another brutal primary with more shadowy money,
We hear the same plans to help corporations & the 1%,
Another plea from Rick Santorum to be anyone's VP.
The GOP makes every day feel like Groundhog Day,
Until Newt sees his shadow and runs back to his hole,

The GOP rivals play proud patriotic eagles
Big Media conglomerates claim to fight piracy
Pipeline proponents claim they'd pump up prosperity,
Though they talk proud, look pleasant, smile pretty
Debrief the debates, predict the primaries

Is the GOP Possessed or Just Occupied?
Newt Gingrich, longtime crusader for Big Business,
Rick Santorum, who represented corporate interests,
Ron Paul, supposedly an extreme free marketeer,
These fighting words sound more at home
Share your disbelief, your dreams & a drink or two

Mitt spent far more than any other candidate
GOP voters dislike Romney so much that they voted
Perry's out, then back in; Bachmann's in, then backed out
Mitt "wins," Rick grins, Newt sins
Share your reactions and your predictions

By Iowa, you'd think the race would take shape,
The libertarian's popular except when he's libertarian,
You have "top tier" picks disqualified in other states,
So, Iowans: I-o-who? I-o-how? I-o-what the heck?!
And in five days, your life can go back to normal.
Share stories of 2011, predictions for 2012,
