Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dave Westlake coming to 4/21 Drinking Liberally

Gather round, my lefty folk, come hear the tale of the tea partier who ventured into Milwaukee realm. The one who came, Westlake was his name, and into the land of beer and progressives he roamed. Over taxes and healthcare he groaned, under entitlement and non-discrimination he moaned, when really, there was no threat he’d be disowned. For it’s nothing like what he’d been shown(ed).

(Rest assured we don’t speak in verse at Drinking Liberally. Or anything remotely like it. And it may be telling that this meesage was composed *without* the aid of beer…)

Let me shove aside my rare (rare?) case of bad writing and give you the details:

Drinking Liberally
Wed. April 21, 7-9PM
@ Sugar Maple, 441 E. Lincoln Ave., Milwaukee

Special guest Dave Westlake, G.O.P./Tea Party candidate for U.S. Senate, who’s hoping to challenge U.S. Senator Russ Feingold in November.

WARNING: A Republican-Tea Party candidate need to be treated gently. Pregnant women, the elderly, and children under 10 should avoid prolonged exposure to them. Do not taunt the candidate. If the candidate begins to emit smoke, get away immediately. Seek shelter and cover head. Failure to do so relieves the organizer of Drinking Liberally Milwaukee, and its parent group, Living Liberally, of any and all liability.

Fine print aside, let’s give Dave Westlake a warm welcome. I think this will be a good conversation for all of us. Look at his info at, and bring your questions. This will be good!

Also, I have learned that our host bar Sugar Maple will be having a novelist reading his book live over the PA until 8:15 PM, so we will need to gather in extra-close and respectfully whisper to one another, as if we were holding a service for our saviors Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. After 8:15, we can let ‘im have it.
