Here is the latest installment of our Drinking Liberally podcast. Will, Carl and I are kind of quiet on this one since Goldy from Horse’s Ass had a bone to pick with The Stranger’s Cienna Madrid. Then, halfway through poor Lee from Blog Reload was booted and we were joined by The Seattle P-I’s Joel Connely. On the table along with the drinks this week were, how political reporting affects politics, the third anniversary of the Iraq War, whether or not Barak Obama is the next big thing, John Edwards’ ability to talk to the working class, Al Gore’s reluctance to be a candidate and the burning question, how bad is too bad in regards to Maria Cantwell. All in all an interesting discussion and as always, I had a great time, even if my smart-ass comments were kept to a minimum this time.
