Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas II

02 July 2010 @ 18:25

On 23-25 July, the Americans For Prosperity Foundation will be holding their third annual RightOnline Conference in Las Vegas. 

As has happened the last two times, the Rightosphere’s top gonzo reporter, Stacy McCain, hasn’t been invited, but not receiving an invitation means nothing to a true gonzo.  He wants to go, but he needs out help:

[Erik] Telford probably thought I’d forget his promise to put me on the agenda for this year’s Right Online conference at the posh Venetian Resort Hotel (where they’re offering rooms at the discount rate of $169 a night.)

“It’s Vegas,” Telford thought to himself. “Surely that redneck loser can’t make it all the way to Vegas.”

Telford obviously didn’t believe that, for the second year in a row, I’d be able to rattle the tip-jar and scare up enough cash for this trip.

Let’s prove this Conservative Beautiful Person wrong and send Stacy to Crapsville.

America could use a little gonzo right about now.

‘I sat there for a long time, and thought about a lot of things. Foremost among them was the suspicion that my strange and ungovernable instincts might do me in before I had a chance to get rich. No matter how much I wanted those things that I needed money to buy, there was some devilish current pushing me off in another direction- toward anarchy poverty and craziness. That maddening delusion that a man can lead a decent life without hiring himself out as a Judas goat.’

    I hope Stacy can get there. As for myself, I will be be haunting said halls. The War Planner and I are trying to form a “west coast cabal” to lay siege to the place…

      Godspeed.

      SIDENOTE: I was just about to leave you a comment because I hadn’t heard from you in a bit. I hope everything is okay.

        I’ve been tied down a bit over the long weekend (please Bob, resist the BDSM references?).

        I’ll be back to my usual chicanery tomorrow.
