It’s nice to be noticed

Drinking Liberally got a shout out in the Strib’s Hot Dish Politics today for the video of Mayor R.T. Rybak’s appearance at our meeting at the 331 Club on December 3rd:

Gov Gutshot by Avidor Rybak, who is running for governor, was asked at a Dec. 3 gathering of the local chapter of Drinking Liberally if, as governor, he would take the time to track a deer he shot during the opener.

Hunters criticized Pawlenty for wounding a deer during the opener in November and then leaving for an Iowa fundraiser before the animal could be found. Other members of the governor’s hunting party tracked the deer without success.

“The deer incident I wouldn’t go after him on, but I think there’s a pretty long … um… example of things he shot in the butt and hasn’t finished off,” said Rybak, setting off a round of laughter and applause.

If you haven’t seen the video, you should watch it here.
