What happens when you mix devoted Liberal and Conservative activists in the same city for two different political conferences, and then add alcohol? I dunno, but we’re fixin’ to find out — Epolitics.com is an official co-sponsor of the Netroots/RightOnline Right Meets Left and Left Meets Right Happy Hour in Minneapolis in just three short weeks. It’s being organized by the legendary (and lovely) Julie Germany, now of DCI Group but formerly director of the Institute for Politics, Democracy and the Internet, and will be co-sponsored on the conservative side by Right Wing News.
Mmmm, mmm, I do love me a good party, and this one’s shaping up to be a hoot and a half, plus an anthropological moment of the highest order…will heads explode when hardcore activists realize that they CAN actually have an intelligent discussion with someone with whom they disagree on just about everything? Or, will the whole event degenerate into a zombie-apocalypse-style bloodbath? Only one way to find out — and that’s to show up. Hope y’all can make it.
