The date and time are fast approaching for the DeKalb LP's election night gathering, better known as "The Third Party Throwdown" at the Famous Pub in Toco Hills. The back room is ready with radio mic on stand for our scheduled speakers, the Wall-O-Flatsceens will be tuned to local TV, CNN, MSNBC, GPB, Fox and any other cable outfit covering the nights election returns. Think of it as a Libertarian Situation room with beer on tap.
Our speakers for evening are Dr. Don Printz chairman of the DeKalb LP, our candidate for PSC District 3 Brad Ploeger and Doug Harmon the chair of the Georgia LP.
There will also be a "Rush" t-shirt contest in honor of Mr. Wheatley over at Creative Loafing, but alas, no karaoke . We are also going to run an election night pool on long it takes local media to realize that Brad Ploeger is going to cause a run-off in the District 3 PSC race. We're pretty sure it's gonna happen and we're also pretty sure they haven't got a clue.
Additionally, if you had hoped to see Libertarian David Staples at the Third Party Throwdown, you won't. Candidate Staples has elected to attend the Douglas County LP's event at Oz Pizza in Douglasville on the 6th.
It's a pretty full schedule but it is a long evening. If you tire of the dreariness of local democrat gatherings or just can't take any more pompous republican posturing, then jump in the car and head over to Toco Hills and the Famous Pub. Plenty of free, free, free parking, oodles of good bar grub and bottomless vats of draft beer stand ready to assist in your participation in the "Third Party Throwdown".
