Announcing The #BaconWhiskeyFreedom Party & free tickets for Laughing Liberally tonight in NYC

 The Bacon Whiskey Freedom Party (by Baratunde) by baratunde

I am tired of all this U.S. debt ceiling talk. Let's just default already and start a #NewAmerica somewhere else. We'll need bacon. And whisk(e)y. And freedom. I recently asked Twitter about the pros and cons of forming a #BaconWhiskeyFreedom party.

All pros. So let's start building it.

Tonight I'm performing in the final Laughing Liberally show of the summer in NYC. The first 50 people to email (and get a confirmation) will get in for free. Either way, you should come. I'll talk about bacon and whiskey and freedom. 

We can heal America guys.
