DPW New Media event @ Sprechers Pub

Wisconsin leftist bloggers, unite!

Yesterday, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin hosted a New Media Event at their State Convention. Though the scene was lit darkly at the newly constructed Sprecher’s Pub in Middleton, conversation itself was light, almost festive, despite the deep political concerns of the writers that were in attendance that evening.

Drinks were delivered – beer was free! – and a delicious spread was served for the writers of progressive blogs from around the state. Familiar names were placed with unfamiliar faces, with many of the writers meeting one another for the first time. Witty and oftentimes light-hearted sarcastic remarks mixed with questions towards candidates who came to mingle with these new media writers – candidate for Attorney General Scott Hassett, 5th Congressional District Candidate Todd Kolosso, and current U.S. Senator Russ Feingold.

What a way to welcome bloggers to the state convention – bringing in one of the most beloved liberal legislators not only in the county, not only in the state, but beloved by bloggers and lefty writers across the nation!

So thank you, Democratic Party of Wisconsin, for granting the humble writers on the left this great opportunity to speak with and meet with Sen. Russ Feingold, as well as other candidates in the 2010 election.
