    • AOC, Ilhan Omar and Tlaib Endorse Sanders
      I find it interesting that  many centrists are angered and surprised. They though these, arguably the most progressive members of the House caucus, would endorse Warren.

Cocktail Party At The Scratching Post: Just Do it!

Hi guys, you guys are probably wondering what we’re up to.  I just have to say how impressed I’ve been with the presentations we’ve had today.  Darragh Murphy is going to have a segment of Meet Me in Denver with Darragh Murphy and Friends to discuss some of the details.  Get your cocktail and join us.  Tonight’s Causmos are $10.00 to PUMAPac to help us to defray the costs of the PUMA  outreach sites in Denver.  Two other worthy causes are two exemplary congresswomen who stuck with Hillary come think or thin, Sheila Jackson Lee and Stephanie Tubbs Jones.  They have been under a lot of pressure for listening to their consciences and going against the flow.  Please, if you have a yuppie food stamp, please send them to these two women and tell them how much their support means to you.  Stay tuned….

There’s plenty of Sam Adams, Corona, Belgian White and Chardonnay.  Gary and Mawm just made a run to the ABC store.  We’re waiting to see their haul.  I am sitting in Taggles bathtub listening to Darragh Murphy.  This cocktail hour is loose and breezy and laissez faire.
