Actually this is a Democratic/Progressive Holiday Party Open thread.

Wait, stop the presses… Party, you got a partay that I could come to?

If so list it in the comments.

If invited I promise not to…or repeat doing

  • Sing Jingle Bells drunk
  • Spike the eggnog with moonshine
  • Dance nude with just a Santa hat & bells (so 1983)
  • Fall into the Christmas tree (Kennedy’s house -Tenafly 1983)
  • Change the names on presents
  • Swear I’ve really seen a reindeer
  • Be drunk & don’t know what’s going on (ok been there-Dublin 2011)
  • Cuss out the snowman
  • Pass out making angels in the snow
  • Get arrested for throwing snowballs with rocks in them
Fulton Democrats, Atlanta Stonewall Democrats and Metro Democrats will be hosting a Holiday get together on Thursday!

Holiday Party Thursday!

Join Dems from Fulton and Metro to celebrate the gifts of the season.

Help support our friends and neighbors facing tough times this year by bringing a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots. Toys for older children are especially needed. We’ll be joined by a Marine from Toys for Tots to accept donations.

Fulton County Dems, note that we will have a VERY brief business meeting promptly at 7:00pm. Be sure to bring a holiday dish or treat to share.

    A Commentary by Marc Pitzke

    “The US Republican race is dominated by ignorance, lies and scandals. The current crop of candidates have shown such a basic lack of knowledge that they make George W. Bush look like Einstein. The Grand Old Party is ruining the entire country’s reputation.”

    Fruitcakes? We’ve always had them in abundance. JMP

    Um no they don’t. They are one of the most impervious substances known to man. And that close to the water treatment plant? Not advisable.

    In other late news: The Fierce Urgency of Now, 70 Years ago: How we learned about the Pearl Harbor attack on Dec. 7, 1941: Bike messengers sent from the WH:

    Or Radio news, which was pretty spotty too:

    In 1941, Washington was a sleeping little southern town in style & substance. WWII would change all that. Fewer folks had phones, cars were still a luxury for some, and the Pentagon had yet to be built. The news? Came from the WH and then the War Department. Fewer euphemisms in bureaucracy then too perhaps. JMP
