The America's Future Foundation has posted audio of the panel on cross-party dating I moderated earlier this month.

  1. Who’s the hottie in red?

  2. Who’s the hottie in red?

  3. If you mean on the panel, the woman in red is Amanda Carpenter from Human Events.

  4. no ring, fair game.

    And who’s the cutie with the white scarf?

  5. Smacky awkwardly but endearingly hitting on Julian in 5…4…3…

  6. Off topic News flash! Rosa Parks, a brave American hero, has died.

  7. The American MEAT INSTITUTE? I didn’t know meat-market was that literal.

  8. Normally, I’ve been trying to stay away from romance-related subjects lately because they’re usually a source of depression for me; a guy who hasn’t had a date in eight years mainly because I’ve been two afraid of rejection to ask. Well, not today. Sunday I finally worked up the courage to ask a co-worker out for dinner and she said “yes.” Details are forthcoming, but it was a definite yes.

    No, I didn’t ask what party she belong to. If anything she seemed nice an apathetic to me. Well see where we go from there.

  9. A sad salute to Rosa Parks.

    Also, I found the sound recording witty and sometimes even insightful.

  10. Hey, Akira! Congratulations, amigo!

    If I had any advice I’d give it. Instead I’ll just say good luck and enjoy yourself.

  11. Good goin’ Akira

    My only bit of advice is to absolutely, under no circumstances, discuss politics.

  12. My only bit of advice is to absolutely, under no circumstances, discuss politics.

    …or religion, or philosophy, or pizza toppings.

  13. Akira, congratulations. Fingers crossed for ya, man.

  14. Good Luck, Akira.

    I bet you aren’t as bad looking as you claim to be. And do follow your own advice: no politics, religion, philosophy or pizza toppings talk. 🙂

    Smacky awkwardly but endearingly hitting on Julian in 5…4…3…

    mediageek,

    I don’t know where this mythology developed that I supposedly ever hit on Julian. I don’t ever recall that happening. I call “internet legend” on your comment.

  15. I’m a lifelong ‘conservatarian’ who married a liberal Democrat. It can work, though our political discussions can be uncomfortable. We try not to do that very often. But, honestly, there are so many more interesting things in life to discuss and share than politics, ferchrissakes.

  16. messing with the religious indoctrination backgrounds of the people you date is far more fun, though i imagine whispering “bush in oh-eight” in a lib dem’s ear would be funny.

    or calling her condoleeza, though that’d probably get you stabbed.

  17. …or religion, or philosophy, or pizza toppings.

    What could be a more innocuous topic than pizza toppings?

    You’re not one of those commie anchovy-haters, are you?

  18. I don’t know where this mythology developed that I supposedly ever hit on Julian. I don’t ever recall that happening. I call “internet legend” on your comment.

    Honestly, I’m not sure.

    Which leaves us all two choices:

    A) Putting it to bed permanently
    or
    B) A round of the “sittin’ in a tree” song.

  19. …or religion, or philosophy, or pizza toppings.

    …or which way the toilet roll should go: sheet over, or, as anti-American haram commie racists would have it, sheet under.

  20. Dear God, watch out for the bog roll as Sandy points out. In our house the roll is mounted vertically to avoid such problems, and I still keep my own roll under the sink within arm’s reach.

  21. What is this, the political equivalent of the donkey punch? Take Coulter from behind, scream out “Oh Hillary” and hang on for dear life?
