Your associate editor was prepared to go to this funny-sounding debate party last Friday at the D.C. headquarters of libertarian masturbation pamphlet Reason, one for which Bob Barr was invited to yell at Obama and McCain on the teevee, live. Ineffectiveness and vanity on this level is, of course, the very essence of libertarianism. So instead your editor incoherently liveblogged from home, viciously drunk (sorry!) and FAR AWAY from the old yelling octoroon. But Liz Glover went in our stead, and she brought a sidekick!
Liz’s sidekick in the first segment of this video is a gal named Christina Tkacik. You “blog people” may recognize that last name! Christina’s sister is Moe Tkacik, the roaming Gawker Media editor who now writes about, uh, robot gadgets for the porn blog, Jalopnik. In this video, Christina interviews a self-identifying Paultard, who is drunk. Not an excuse! Wonkette subscribes to the drinking theory that alcohol only makes you more honest.
Then Liz interviews Bob Barr, who, again, was yelling at the teevee all night at a secretly communist magazine’s editorial offices.
