So the problem with Kossacks is that we're just not opinionated enough, you know? You get a whole group of us together and we don't know what to talk about.

Ha.

I can't speak for the rest, but I had a great time. With a wide ranging discussion of local and state politics (our primary is just a few weeks away), old movies, new movies, firemen wearing thongs (for some reason that part of the conversation really sticks in my mind), um . . . where was I? Oh yeah, having some beers with my new non-pixelated friends.

We'll start out with what I saw on my way to the get-together, the Seattle contingent of the RNC (he seemed pretty lonely):

P1010001

Ok, I'm still a little fuzzy on handles, real names, etc. And some folks wished not to be identified, so I'll just leave it to the others to out themselves if they wish.

But first, here's IsraelHand's secret security badge from Saturday's rally in Tacoma. We were all very jealous, and he had some terrific Kerry stories that I hope he'll eventually share here.

P1010002

And without further ado, the Seattle dKos contingent that had time in their schedules to come. fblau also took some shots, and he's a real photographer, so hopefully you'll get to see those, too, in the comments to this diary.

P1010005

P1010006

P1010007

We decided that next time we'll all go south. There are supposedly some great airline pilot bars down around Sea-Tac.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
