Just 20 Seats Remain for Our Granite State Debate-Night-a-Palooza

We’ve had a tremendous response to our upcoming (quadrennial!) National Review GOP debate-watch this coming Saturday night (February 6) at the Radisson Hotel in beautiful Manchester, N.H.

Originally we planned for 400 people, but given the demand expanded to 500. Right this moment, over 470 people are confirmed attending. Which means: We have a handful of seats remaining. If you have yet to reserve a seat, do so now. Right here.

The event is free, and we’re even providing some grub. Of course, as conservatives, you know that there is no such thing as a free lunch, or even free food. So we’ll be asking you and your conscience to throw a sawbuck or two in the tip jar. You don’t have to, but we’re confident that as a solid citizen who detests moochers, you will. Anyway . . . here’s what’s in store. The doors open at 5:00 p.m. At 6:00 p.m., we’ll commence with our first panel session, featuring Rich Lowry, Jim Geraghty, Charlie Cooke, and Tim Alberta, who will pontificate about the state of America’s presidential primaries. Up next, the stage will be occupied by the “GLoP Culture” trio of Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long, and John Podhoretz, who will share their Ricochet-powered wisdom and analysis. Around 8:30 p.m., on the big, fat screen we’ve rented, we’ll watch the Republican debate (being held not too far away at Saint Anselm College). When that’s over, at 10:30 p.m., the GLoP boys will reassemble to chortle, guffaw, and critique what we will have all just seen (or endured).

Comrades, we did versions of this event in 2008 and 2012, and both were utter smashes. As will be the case again on Saturday. Of course, you really can’t enjoy it unless you are actually there. (Although Ricochet will be recording and podcasting the panels.) Again the cost is free, there will be food provided, and there will even be a cash bar. You want in? Good! Sign up here. You snooze, you lose.

Biden Owes the Country More

Tuesday night was a national embarrassment, and both candidates are to blame. Donald Trump came into the evening apparently determined to dominate the discussion, and he did.
