Tune in TONIGHT for Political Comedy

Tue, Oct 14, 2014, 6:36 am  //  Riley Sweeney

Like the Daily Show but with way less talent

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 Jason Overstreet retired, the title to Pete Kremen’s unpublished memoirs and much much more.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.

I like Riley’s contributions and this may be his first video but he is good and bound to get better.  A good news synopsis of candidates.
