Good Morning Stupor Tuesday! DC Area Reasonoids, Watch the Results at Reason's DC HQ, 7PM—?

|

Good morning on this Stupor Tuesday, when the odds are high that we'll find out  just who and what will be representing the Democrats and Republicans in the presidential sweepstakes later this year. Watch this blog and reason.tv for constant taped and live video updates on the twists and turns of the day's events. And look for running commentary from reason's far-flung staff of journalists and analysts.

And if you're in DC, stop by our HQ to bet on the winners and eat and drink to the losers (or vice versa). Details below:

Come out on Tuesday, February 5, and join the staff of reason as celebrate what we like to think of as "Stupor Tuesday," the concentrated gaggle of laughter-and-tear-inducing presidential primaries that is consuming more oxygen than all the greenhouse gas emissions in the world. 

The doors to our offices at 1747 Connecticut Avenue NW (just a few blocks north of Dupont Circle) open wide at 7PM and we'll have light snacks and hard and soft drinks on hand to dull the pain as the inevitably disappointing results (because someone will win) are broadcast  in appallingly clear detail on our massive and multiple flat-screen TV displays.

For added fun, reason staffers and other journalists will be broadcasting live on reason.tv and blogging live at reason online. And we'll be hosting a probably legal but surely fun betting pool on the day's outcomes.

We'll also be celebrating the publication of our March issue, which features a cover story on the coming nanotechnology boom, a riveting interview with the Institute for Justice's Chip Mellor, a look at how Americans learned to love drug testing, and much, much more.

Hope to see you on Stupor Tuesday!

Where: Reason HQ, 1747 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC

  1. Vote or die, fatties.

  2. Sorry, that just doesn’t work for me. I can’t watch presidential primaries unless my hands have something to do. Like cleaning guns or reloading ammo.

  3. You call it Stupor Tuesday. We call it Mardi Gras.

  4. Will you be serving cosmopolitans? I think that should be the official Reason drink–not that I’d mind.

  5. I wonder if Mitt’s favorite ginger ale will be served.

    Vernor’s is the best in the world.

  6. How about having Ron Paul’s old associates re-enact a lynching?

  7. If politics is show business for ugly people, what is blogging?

  8. If I had one, I’d hop on my private jet and fly in for this event.

  9. How about having Ron Paul’s old associates re-enact a lynching?

    Maybe you, Dondero and the editorial staffs of the New Republic and Reason could re-enact Paul’s lynching…

  10. A few of the things I’ll be watching for…

    Will Edwards premature pull-out help Obama?

    Will Ann Coulter’s recent confession of being the closet liberal many of us already thought she was help or hurt Clinton? For that matter, will it help or hurt McCain? Obama?

    Will Bill’s continued campaigning on his wife’s behalf further skeeve out an increasing number of formerly-leaning-to-Hillary fence-sitters by reminding them of just how much fun it will be to have Willy’s Willy back in the White House?

    Sorry, that just doesn’t work for me. I can’t watch presidential primaries unless my hands have something to do. Like cleaning guns or reloading ammo.

    I’m with Larry.

  12. Just in case anyone cares, Capital letters MK is not the same person as I.

  13. I care.

    And so should you, if give a damn about:

    (1) Forming a reputation of your own.

    (2) Other people, and not confusing them.

  14. Hey New Caps MK, to distinguish yourself from Long-Time Poster Who Was Here First Lowercase mk, maybe you could alter your handle and call yourself:

    – MK2?

    – MK II?

    – M2K2?

    Just a suggestion.

  15. “(1) Forming a reputation of your own.”

    – so sayeth master Skywalker

    “(2) Other people, and not confusing them.”

    Isn’t Luke Skywalker fictional? I don’t know what’s real anymore {interrobang}

  16. How about having Ron Paul’s old associates re-enact a lynching?

    I suspect they’re busy at a Robert Byrd fundraiser.

    If politics is show business for ugly people, what is blogging?

    Journalism for smart people?

  17. Should I come and try to get Reason to endorse Obama for president?

    Survey says: maybe

  18. Let the advance auction of stolen goods begin!

  19. Voted Reagan, Bush, Bush, Dole, Bush, Bush, and will now be voting for Obama.

  20. My girlfriend and I just casted our vote for Ron Paul here in NYC. Suck it!! HAHA! Ron Paul FTW!

  21. drink to the losers (or vice versa)

    Vice versa being… lose to the drinkers?

  22. Zogby thinks that Ron Paul is still in the race because he plans to use this as a launching pad for a 3rd party run. If this is true and Hillary and McCain are the nominees, who would Ron Paul take the most votes away from? Perhaps lots of anti-war Democrats would vote for Paul?

  23. bookworm – some of the independents voting for McBain are under the delusion that he is somehow anti-war (see Matt Welch). Paul as 3d party candidate would also take away some of those voters, if the MSM ever pointed out how pro-war McBain is. Paul would also take away the vote of some conservatives who favor actual conservatism, and not just the war.

  24. If this is true and Hillary and McCain are the nominees, who would Ron Paul take the most votes away from?

    I think a lib 3rd party will almost inevitably cannibalize predominantly Republican votes.

  25. “I think a lib 3rd party will almost inevitably cannibalize predominantly Republican votes.”

    In that case, I hope Hillary isn’t the nominee or that Ron Paul doesn’t run on a 3rd party ticket.

    Has anybody read Matt Welch’s book about McCain? I couldn’t tell very much about the book from reading the Amazon reviews.

  26. So, can we long-time lurkers come along tonight? Heck, I work just a block from there (at a think tank, no less).

  27. Hey so any returns yet? who are the winners who is it going to be?

    Exit pollers get to it.

  28. NRO is stating that the Paul delegate in WV will determine the winner there. It’s in the second or third round and between Romney and Huckabee.

    Whom will they choose?

  29. Ah, so that answers it. Other libertarians DO cry and laugh during the elections. That clears a lot up.
