DAT also still has the original Haruko design, which we launched during the 4th of July celebrations in Bangkok -- the "Bangkok for Barack" design -- and you can also get those from us. This design is on a white t-shirt, with the www.democratsabroad.org URL on the back in red.
For both t-shirts, we have all different sizes -- from XXL down to kids' sizes.
Wear your politics for all your friends to see this important election -- and let's get Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the White House, and increase our Democratic majorities in the Senate and House!
On to victory, 2008 -- and looking cool all the way there...
Chair, DA Thailand
The Presidential Debates are just around the corner – where are you going to watch them? Why not join a friendly crowd of Democrats Abroad to cheer on Barack Obama? DA Thailand will be organizing debate parties for each of the coming Presidential debates, as well as the Vice-Presidential debate (when the McCain handlers have to finally let Sarah Palin speak for herself!).
DA Thailand is organizing a no-host social night to watch the first debate on the evening of Saturday, September 27 at the Roadhouse Barbecue (www.roadhousebarbecue.com – there is a map on the site), starting at 6:30 p.m. Come on by to support Barack Obama, see friends, share political chatter and views, and of course, enjoy the Roadhouse’s great ribs and other food, and ice-cold beers. DAT will have our Obama English/Thai language t-shirts on offer (they are the coolest t-shirts – the talk of the town!), as well as Obama bumper stickers and buttons for those who want them.
Please RSVP (if you plan to attend) to democratsabroad "at" gmail.com
Here is the schedule for the upcoming debates. Each of the debates starts at 9 p.m. in the US and runs for 90 minutes. Given the time difference between the US and Thailand, which means that all these debates will be live in the early morning BKK time, DA Thailand will be taping the debate and then (in Bangkok) showing each on the following evening (nights of September 27, October 3, October 8, and October 16). Other DAT Chapters in the North, Mekong/Northeast, and Pattaya/Eastern Seaboard will also likely be organizing events and we will be relaying news of those events to you separately. Here is the schedule:
First presidential debate:
Friday, September 26 (BKK party Saturday evening)
University of Mississippi, Oxford, MS
Vice presidential debate:
Thursday, October 2 (BKK party Friday evening)
Washington University in St. Louis, MO
Second presidential debate:
Tuesday, October 7 (BKK party Wednesday evening)
Belmont University, Nashville, TN
Third presidential debate:
Wednesday, October 15 (BKK party Thursday evening)
Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY
Look forward to seeing you with us at the debates!

Democrats Abroad Social Night – Getting out the Vote! 6:30 p.m. -- Saturday, 6 September -- Reun Tong Restaurant
members and friends!
Come out and join friends in DAT for some of the best Thai food in
Many will remember that Ruen Thong is the same restaurant where DAT held an event in early February to support our efforts to organize the Democrats Abroad Global primary. The mouth-watering food was commented favorably on by all, and the atmosphere enjoyed by the two dozen Americans who came by was fun and exciting! Photos from that February event are down below this posting -- so you can see all the fun we had then, which we will repeat on this Saturday!
Please join us – all funds raised go directly to support the efforts of DAT to encourage the Americans among us to register and vote in this pivotal election in November! The Ruen Thong restaurant is located across the street from the original Tawan Daeng brewery on Naradhiwas Rajanagarin Soi 30, right next to a 7-11. The phone number at the restaurant is (02) 681-1284 or (02) 681-1285. We will be on the second floor in the private function room.
