Top 10 Reasons to Come On Nr’S “Post-Election” Cruise

Number 9: PAT TOOMEY.

Oh, soooooo close. So very very close. You could smell the sweet victory; you could taste it: a long-shot stalwart conservative besting liberal GOP borker Arlen Specter. Against all odds, closing fast down the stretch, the incumbent panicking, a photo finish . . . alas, it was not meant to be. But as a campaigner – and more so as a Congressman – Pat Toomey has proven himself to be terrifically inspiring. What a fighter! And a true believer too!

And speaking of beliefs, believe this my friends: bigger and better things await this man. And the first of them is his participation in the National Review 2004 Post-Election Caribbean Cruise.

I am truly looking forward to the Keystone State solon talking to our seafaring contingent (over 200 have already signed up!) about his primary slugfest, yes, but more so about the state of the GOP on Capitol Hill (truth be told, I’m afraid I’ll be crying after I hear the down-and-dirty about the behind-the-scenes). Friends, Pat Toomey is the real thing, and someone you must meet and listen too and speak with. And I know you will, because I’m confident you’re going to sign up for our bon voyage (which, by the way, is super affordable – our ultra-low prices start at just $1,549 a person!).

And why wouldn’t you want to spend a week (November 13-20 to be precise) on the high seas, on a luxury cruise (on Holland America Line’s glorious Zuiderdam), enjoying sharp/witty discussions of politics and policy, and revelrous socializing (pool-side cocktail parties and “smokers,” and intimate dining with our speakers) with the Honorable Mr. Toomey – and with Dick Morris, Michelle Malkin, Victor Davis Hanson, Bernard Lewis, Ed Gillespie, Stephen Moore, Dinesh D’Souza, John Hillen, John Derbyshire, Rich Lowry, Ramesh Ponnuru, and Jay Nordlinger? Face it: you’ve got but one choice, and that is to reserve your sumptuous cabin (even the smallest ones are huge compared to those on other cruise lines). Do it now at www.nationalreviewcruise-carib.com (complete information about our trip, the ship, and a secure reservation form can all be found there).

Reparations would grant African Americans government benefits not paid to other Americans to rectify the awful sin of slavery and the "peculiar institution's" residual harm.

Wajahat Ali, Ctd.

I gather he didn’t like my comment on his New York Times op-ed on the folly of reaching out to Trump supporters. He snipes, “I await The National Review’s piece on reaching out to Biden voters and reading about their ‘elegy’ and understanding their ‘economic anxiety.’” After the 2016 election, ... Read More
