Tune in TONIGHT for Political ComedyPermalink +
Tue, Oct 14, 2014, 6:36 am // Riley Sweeney
Whatcom County has been an innovator in the realm of unintentional political comedy, tonight, I am aiming to do it on purpose for once.
Tonight at 6pm at votejoy.varvid.com, the Political Junkie will take to the airwaves with a live video broadcast. I will be doing political comedy as well as interviewing Joy Monjure about her race for state representative.
Tune in to find out the real reason why Rep. Jason Overstreet retired, the title to Pete Kremen’s unpublished memoirs and much much more.
See you tonight at 6pm at votejoy.varvid.com.
