Ann Coulter, Nick Gillespie Debating Whether Cons and Libertarians Can Get Along, Feb. 16

|

Screw the Republican candidate debates (yes, there's another one tonight, meaning that the series is about to challenge The Fantastiks for the longest-running, most boring stage show of all time).

On Thursday, February 16, I will debate Ann Coulter on the question: Can fiscal & social conservatives pull together in 2012?

It's happening at the Independence Institute's 27th Annual Founders' Night Dinner, in Glendale, Colorado.

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. I am amazed that people will shell out that kind of money to watch people say talking points at each other.

    1. thus coulter who can proper foam-up a crowd to extract das patriotic marks fur de vaderland.

    2. It is damn good broccoli.

    3. +1,000,000

    4. the longest-running, most boring stage show of all time

      Honorable mention: Debate chat room party

  2. Watch out Nick- I hear she’ll spout nonsequiturs all day long… that, and bite the head off of the male she’s just tricked into mating.

  3. Will there be a book signing after?

  4. 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

    Cruella De Vil, Cruella De Vil
    If she doesn’t scare you no
    evil thing will

  5. You money grubbers, is this not going to be available for online viewing? You’re the editor-in-chief for reason.com and reason.tv, for Gaia’s sake.

  6. Ann Coulter???? WTMFH!?!?

    Why don’t you just debate a crazy bag lady. I think her talking points make more sense than the Ice Bitch’s.

    1. +111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111

  7. So what if there are eleven, twelve or more people who want to pay ten large for dinner? Out of luck?

  8. Cons and libertarians can make the odd tactical alliance, but as long as cons are enthusiastic fans of the warfare state, the welfare state, and the regulatory state, it can never be more than that.

    You can substitute liberals and progressives for cons in that sentence, BTW.

    1. I agree. I have a friend who enjoys bashing liberals on Facebook, and we both enjoy bashing one liberal in particular. I was almost shocked when I saw him posting bashings of Ron Paul. He thinks libertarians are crazy. I’ve tried to reason with him, but his mind is closed.

    2. Re: RC Dean,

      Tell me about it. A little perousing through the comments section of Townhall.com gives you a quick education on how neo-cons can be irrational and jingoistic about foreign policy and authoritarian about personal liberties.

      Liberals are no better – they’re just as eleutherophobic as so-called “conservatives” except when it comes to those few liberties they feel passionate about. They never stop to consider that all liberties are important, they simply show their contempt for human freedom as their brethren on the right.

  9. For the love of Rand Nick. You simply MUST use the phrase:
    Ann you skanky cunt.

    1. I think ignorant slut would be far more effective.

    2. Whore for Christ — shame she isn’t Catholic, nick could call her ‘Jezebel of the rosary.’

      1. And if Nick could work in this line: ‘in Coulter’s defense, Jesus said nothing about the cocaine.’ it would make that cover price worth it.

    3. “Ann? Maybe you should just shut your whore mouth.”

      1. I bet she gives great head.

        1. Nothing sexy about sticking your dick in a bone garbage disposal.

          1. Close your eyes.

        2. With that huge bump in her neck, absolutely.

  10. The Jacket in flyover country? Nick, are you doing any other events that non-royalty might be able to attend?

    Also, you should appear on the Mike Rosen show while you’re here.

  11. Ann Coulter, Nick Gillespie Debating Whether Cons and Libertarians Can Get Along, Feb. 16

    Carefull, Nick, or she’ll flash you those two drinking straws she has for legs…

  12. On Thursday, February 16, I will debate Ann Coulter on the question: Can fiscal & social conservatives pull together in 2012?

    Will there be a third person there representing the views of conservatives?

  13. By the way, that’s not a very flattering cartoon. Looks like Ann on a date with Dr. Cornelius

    1. It’s like something out of a Nineteenth century newspaper slandering the Irish. Anyone who has ever seen Nick knows those jowls fluff out like a chipmunks and don’t sloop like an ape. I bet Payne can’t even draw a chipmunk!

      1. Ever seen a chipmunk in the shape of a penis?

        Wait, is it Payne who does the dildo-esque drawings, or it it Bok?

        1. I don’t really keep up with the political cartoonist, I’m more of a fan of Jack Kirby and Jennell Jaquays.

  14. The big question here is… What will Nick wear to such a swanky event? Will he tow the line or will he cave?

    1. Better yet, a suit and tie made of snake skin.

  15. The Jacket meets the ‘Do, huh? Both of you can say “As I explain in my new book, …” It’ll be fun.

    1. What’s a ‘do?

  16. Is Nick Gillespie secretly Steven Tyler’s love child?

  17. Why did the artist make Ann Coulter look so much fatter than she really is?

    And why did he make Nick look like a fucking chimpanzee?

    1. And I assume Coulter is drinking blood instead of wine. And Nick is imbibing some kind of whiskey.

  18. I am betting Ann has a bigger dick than Nick.

    Anyway, can you get this shit on CSPAN eventually?

  19. Please, Old Mexican, bring forth the specific comments on Townhall from NeoCons that are begging for the Federal Govt. to force people to do (anything).

    We both know you got nothing.

    But hey, anything to prop up the smugness, right?

    Conservatives in favor of more regulations and the welfare state? Show me the money….

    1. Please, Old Mexican, bring forth the specific comments on Townhall from NeoCons that are begging for the Federal Govt. to force people to do (anything).

      if begging for a war in Iran doesn’t count, then maybe they’re enthusiasm for the drug war, praying people out of the gay, etc should suffice.

  20. Oh, as for Jingoistic.

    What the fuck do you nitwits call your spouting semen all over Ron Paul’s face then? ‘Cause that’s all your defense of him ever amounts to.

  21. Needs more labels.

  22. I like the cartoon, because the first thing I think of when I see Ann Coulter is “CHRISTIAN!”
