Grassroots Shorewood Celebrates Pasch Campaign in Style

The Shorewood chapter of Grassroots Northshore pumped up Rep. Sandy Pasch campaign volunteers with a night of poetry, music and comedy at Sen. Alberta Darling's expense.

Around 100 packed in Shorewood Monday night for a unique evening of activities to motivate grassroots volunteers for the Democratic Senate candidate Rep. Sandy Pasch's campaign.

The night started with a group of supporters holding signs at the intersection of East Capitol Drive and North Oakland Drive, soliciting car horn honks. The group moved to Three Lions Pub, where they recited original limericks, poetry, music about 8th Senate recall election incumbent Sen. Alberta Darling (R-River Hills). Comedians performed jokes about Darling.

Did anyone record portions of this event and post them on YouTube, perchance? I'd love to see some examples of the rapier wit that Sandy yucked it up to last night.

Should have also recorded getting the bird

Once again, what passes for intelligent dialogue on this site leaves me unimpressed.

Here's something that might be a little easier for you to comprehend, Jane. http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20514554,00.html Plus if you want to post more unfounded gossip, I'm sure they're more tolerant of it there. You're welcome.

I like the elderly poet lady dressed like a sk8er boi who looks like she's about to perform some unspeakable act on the microphone.

I heard Sandy was booed loudly at the MF 4th of July parade! Cheers for Darling.
Steve August 02, 2011 at 11:59 PM
She was booed very loudly it was fun. Sandy and her group saw me pointing out my "Scott Walker is my Hero" shirt. They all were washed out lib types at the back of the parade.

Booing beats thinking any day of the week

Dave that red blazer and those pumps become you.

Depends on which part of the parade route you’re referring to. In WFB there were some very anti-Darling groups and, no doubt, ditto for Pasch. Shorewood’s parade was most certainly not a friendly Darling event. I suspect that it’s possible to cherry pick moments from all over the place. Point is, this contest is very close and, who would have guessed, dirty tricks are now being deployed in a last ditch effort to swing a few voters this way or that. I hope Sandy Pasch wins, but if she doesn’t, I hope Darling takes this as a wakeup call to think about public policy outside of her cozy country club crowd world view.

Good point, Nate. I apologize to all the real sk8ers out there. Most of you don't look like a crazy old hippie.

Hey Andrwe, look at all the " nom de plume" and first name only participants on Patch tonite. Looks like Patch did NOT meet your demands last nite to exclude anyone who doesn't meet your standard (using a full name). You called all the! "nom de plums" some not so nice names last nite . Does like like your brand of censorship is too popular out here.

someone's been adding cool aide to the water in shorewood...no doubt some union official pulled some strings or had his goon squad persuade the water dept. employee.
Craig August 04, 2011 at 01:51 AM
Funny....I honked and flipped them the #1 sign. They were all smiles.....Kinda creeped me out knowing they may have been aroused by that.
Bob McBride August 04, 2011 at 02:11 AM
You confused them. They weren't sure whether they should tally it on the "HONKS" list or "BIRDS" list.
Mark S August 04, 2011 at 02:26 AM
That event looked like it was crazy fun, do I actually see a couple of them sleeping? The blank stares explain alot though.....
