Between the sniffles and giggles lining the beer-soaked floor of our last presidential election soiree in 2008, there was a life-affirming splash of elevated optimism that we’ll never forget. Outside, sunroofs popped open to reveal arms and tits and noses attached to heady heads all bopping around in a chorus of car horns and bass thumps. Everybody agreed! Barack Obama was going to save us all! Fast forward to four years later, and we’re all a little more subdued by the calluses of economic doubt – but that doesn’t mean we won’t be angry and happy and loud in each other’s faces come election night. Whether you’re buying the tense-faced Everyman-isms and vagaries of Republican Mitt Romney (Red Rumble Romney shots for you!) or the professorial deconstructions and juiced-up practicalities of Democrat Barack Obama (Obama Mama shots for you!), you’d be wise to join us for the point when they all blur together at Bullitt Bar. The last one standing wins! – Billy Manes
