Attn, Colorado Reasonoids: Nick Gillespie to Debate Ann Coulter at Independence Institute's Feb. 16 Dinner

|

I'm happy to announce that I'll be appearing with Ann Coulter at the Independence Institute's 27th Annual Founders' Night Dinner, in Glendale, Colorado on Thursday, February 16.

We'll be live-debating the question: Can fiscal & social conservatives pull together in 2012?

Based on the drawing to the right (by Reason regular, the great Henry Payne no less!), I suspect the answer will be no.

Here's the full info breakdown from the II folks:

In 2010, I was honored to speak at the Independence Insitute's annual Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms bash (video and writeup here). It's a great group of people when it comes to limiting the size and scope of government and they sure know how to throw a party.

I've mixed it up with Ann Coulter as well, too. Here's a Red Eye show from last April in which the Demonic author and I, along with Greg Gutfeld, Bill Schulz, TV's Andy Levy, and Cougar Town scribe Michael McDonald yakked for an hour:

  1. What level allows you to have a free grope of Coulter’s bony ass?

    1. An 8 ball?

      1. Can fiscal & social conservatives pull together in 2012?

        Really?
        That’s the actual title of the “question” you’ll be “live-debating”?
        Whether y’all can “pull together”?

        Sheesh.

  2. I’m confused by the comic. How does Robert Blake figure in this?

    1. He will leave Coulter in the limo after he forgets his phone at the dinner allowing her to be shot while he is gone.

      1. I totally forgot about that. Good recall.

    2. Funny every time!

  3. Why did Payne make Nick look like a horny chimpanzee? That wasn’t very nice.

    1. Essence of truth… essence!

    2. Stereotypical caricacture of an Irishman.

    3. He kind of looks like the product of Dr. Zaius raping the Fonz.

      1. I can see that.

  4. Ann Coulter walks into a bar . . .

    1. Ann Coulter, Nick Gillespie and a Rabbi walk into a bar. Get it right.

      1. . . . and the bartender sez, “why the long face.”

  5. If you’re going to buy a bag of weed clearly labeled “WEED,” take a minute and scratch the label off.

    1. It’s Colorado. Nobody cares.

      1. Fuck those guys.

    2. Same with the Atlas Shrugged book.

    3. It’s oregano

  6. Weed, booze, cigs, Atlas Shrugged, and a knobby neck tranny. Stereotypes, indeed.

    1. Yeah, Payne did leave out her Adam’s Apple; it’s pretty prominent.

  7. That New Yorker style cartoon is flippin’ awesome.

    You know you’ve arrived when…

  8. Hmm. Too rich for my blood, and I’d be to afraid that Coulter would finally go all The Thing and burst out of her skin and eat half the audience before we all sealed ourselves in and burned the place to the ground to prevent her escape into the general populace.

    But if you have time to do a happy hour while you’re in town, that wouldn’t suck.

    1. Wilford Brimley: “C’mon Nick. I’m okay now. I’m all right. Lemme outta here.”

      Nick Gillespie: “Can’t do that.”

      Wilford Brimley: “Watch Coulter.”

      Nick Gillespie: “What?”

      Wilford Brimley: “I said, watch Coulter.”

    2. “I dunno what the hell’s in there with Nick, but it’s weird and pissed off, whatever it is.”

  9. Nick, If you were an African American that cartoon would be racist.

    1. See how politically correct I am?

  10. Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil
    If she doesn’t scare you no
    evil thing will
    To see her is to take a
    sudden chill
    Cruella, Cruella

  11. Any non-Colorado libertarians feel like sponsoring somebody for this dinner? Or any locals have a couple extra seats at your table?

  12. Coulter’s gone all in for Romney, so…what side is she representing again?

    1. At first you think Cruells
      is a devil
      But after time has worn
      away the shock
      You come to
      realize you’ve
      seen her kind of eyes
      Watching you from
      underneath a rock

  13. I don’t know how well fiscal & social “conservatives” can or will pull together in 2012, but like it or not, it’s an effort that needs to be maintained for the present and near future. Turns out the social “liberals” are no more libertarian on avg. than the social “conservatives” (traditionalists) these days, so it’s not like you gain anything for liberty by moving along that axis anyway.

  14. My money’s on The Jacket.

  15. Someone should warn “the Jacket” that once he has impregnated her, she bites off his head and scuttles off to fill her egg sac with the product of that unholy union.

    1. Jackets don’t have heads to bite off. Just as long as Nick doesn’t go anywhere near her, everything will be fine.

    2. Awesome. +1 internet.

  16. I like Coulter. I think she’s one of the funnier conservative writers and is pretty easy on the eyes as well.

      1. Come on, don’t let politics warp your judgment. I bet if she were a libertarian you’d think she was hot. And she is very funny.

        1. she is very tries to be funny

  17. I may see you there Nick. If not I can get us free drinks and entrance to Shotgun’s…this is not a joke.

    1. I hung out with Welch last time when he was here (at Governors Park Grill) and I didn’t bite too much.

    2. Yeah, I wonder if the social con side of this equation will chafe against having the dinner tantalizingly close to Shotgun Willies.

      1. Shotgun Willie’s is the ONLY reason to EVER go to Glendale…

  18. Comic caption:

    “Have you a liceeeeeenze for your minkey?”

  19. Gillespie isn’t very bright if he labels his weed that conspicuously.

    1. You’re right. In CO the strain would be labled. Jack Herer FTW!

  20. “…the great Henry Payne…”

    Can’t tell if serious or just toeing the line…

  22. A faint smell of olive oil on the verge of going rancid, mixed with week old garlic clung to the scruffy leather jacket. Gillespie’s ethnic features struck a disconcerting chord audience in the mostly WASP filled dining room. Nick tried to pull his hairy, simian-like hands into the arms of his jacket as he reflexively squeezed them into fists, a small bead of oily sweat oozed down his forehead.

    Coulter squeezed her thighs together involuntarily as she eyed her dark opponent, strangely attracted to his fur covered masculinity. Her thong panties wedged further into the crack of her ass as she wriggled a bit on her chair.

Gillespie’s ethnic features struck a disconcerting chord audience in the mostly WASP filled dining room. Nick tried to pull his hairy, simian-like hands into the arms of his jacket as he reflexively squeezed them into fists, a small bead of oily sweat oozed down his forehead. Nick, a low land variety, was feeling a little woozy in the thin, mile-high air.

    Coulter squeezed her thighs together involuntarily as she eyed her dark opponent, strangely attracted to his fur covered masculinity. Her thong panties wedged further into the crack of her ass as she wriggled a bit on her chair, her hemorhoid throbbed in anticipation.

  24. My advise to anyone who has to be in the same room with Ann Coulter: BRING A BARF BAG!!!

  26. Oh, Nick, this is going to be so much fun. And just wait until I get you drunk and seduce you in the limo after the debate. And no, that isn’t a banana in my pocket.

  27. I’m happy to announce that I’ll be appearing with Ann Coulter…

    Bullshit.
