When Democrats karaoke











Just to show you the lengths we go to bring you the news, that's me with Drew Pritt at the Democratic Party's karaoke get-together at Sticky Fingerz last night.

It was a good turnout, with several office-holders (newly-elected House Majority Leader Steve Harrelson and Pulaski County Clerk Pat O'Brien) and candidates (attorney general hopeful Paul Suskie and Dist. 37 House candidate Jesse Gibson) in attendance.

Some of the conversation was predictably awkward, especially considering Pritt's action yesterday challenging Bill Halter's eligibility to run for lieutenant governor.

Songs ranged from Democratic Party chairman Jason Willett's rendition of "Suspicious Minds" (pretty good, actually) to Pritt's full-throated version of "When You're Good to Mama" from the musical "Chicago" (um, check please).

Everyone was in good spirits, though, and after sleeping off their hangovers I'm sure they'll be back to bashing each other's heads in through the May 23 primary.

UPDATE: The event raised $2,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
