Update #2

We Did It (and the Right-Wing Attacked Us!)

Comment

Hi Folks -

Thank you!

The 77 of you have together achieved the goal of this Kickstarter campaign: $5,000 to help cover tour costs. Having been to 10 cities so far, I can tell you this is an exciting way to see the country, connect with local liberals, support Drinking Liberally chapters and promote the ideas in the book. I'll send you more info about where I'll be headed -- and hope to see many of you on the road.

Today, coincidentally, is also the day of our biggest media hit yet: a piece in the conservative Weekly Standard mocking the book. If the right-wing media considers the book important enough to become a frontpage story, we're in good shape!

Check in out: http://weeklystandard.com/articles/living-liberal

It's a piece of mockery of course, but actually sort of fun -- he tries to follow my 538 Ways...and you know what, he even attended a DL chapter and enjoyed it!

So thank you for making this happen! More updates soon -- about your rewards, the tour, the book and more.

Cheers,
- justin
