Calling All Political Junkies! Come join us on this Tuesday for the first annual (and sometimes more frequently) Super Tuesday Viewing Party. What is that you say? Besides a good excuse to drink, we figured we’d get together and watch the primary results for the 22 states participating in the extravaganza! Over 2500 delegates are up for grabs, and we actually may have the nominee determined for at least one of the parties that night. If you don’t get into politics..come on out anyway..we promise not to bore you too much. I might even dance at the end of the night. Maybe.

Need an incentive? Drink specials: Buy one get one free!! Pretty much says it all I think.

When: This Tuesday February 5th (6:30p-???)
Where: Premium Lounge 4199 Manchester Rd in the Grove.(314.652.8585)
Why: Politics or Die!

Let’s talk about the news media coverage of the primary process. I think overall it’s been very good to outstanding. The three major cable news outlets really hit their stride when they can talk non-stop politics. CNN and Fox News have been impressive with their ability to go beyond the round table of pundits arguing who’s up and who’s down for hours. Fox in particular with their “Focus Group Guy” segment where pollster Frank Luntz samples real time audience reaction to a debate or candidate interaction has been a real highlight this season. CNN has done a good job of not only showing, but explaining exit polls and how they make a direct correlation to the end game. They show short and long term trends and you can follow up with that data via their .com site. Impressive stuff really. Having said all of that, MSNBC wins the top award for best overall coverage. Not because they are doing the innovative stuff like the other two networks listed, but because their lineup of commentators, pundits, experts etc, absolutely blows everyone else out of the water. They are all very seasoned and understand the people and process enough that they provide education just by giving an opinion. Chris Matthews, Tim Russert and Howard Fineman should all win Emmy’s this year. I’ll talk about some of the better political Blogs out there in the next few weeks.
