Yup, Senator Edwards speaks. SoreLoserman II begins tonight, but I'm not waiting!

Congratulations President Bush!!

It's all over but the crying for the SoreLosermen!!

And now it's time for us to start planning the Free Republic George W. Bush Inaugural Ball II!

I've had Kristinn checking venues and prices and we're in the process of getting a proposal from the Wyndham City Center Hotel in Washington, DC (the other Wyndham that we used last time is already booked).

The costs have more than doubled from our first ball, so we're estimating the price per person will have to be in the neighborhood of $175 per person. We'll also have to move fast on this. We'll need to make a quick decision as soon after the elections results are official as we possibly can and then we'll need to quickly raise the funds to put up the required deposit.

So, here's the question: Are you ready for an Inaugural Ball?

If so, please post here if you plan to attend and how many will be in your party.

Thank you all very much and hope to see you in DC on January 20th!!


By the way, everyone told us last time that the Free Republic Ball was the best one in town and it was half the price or less than all the others. I suspect that this Ball will also be the best in town and at $175 will still be priced less than any other!

Please let us know as soon as you can if you plan to attend. We need to get a headcount as soon as possible so we can firm up the details and make the commitment to the hotel.

Thanks again,

Jim

Ohio ain't gonna fly.

Lawyers whisper in the big ego'd spineless one's ear so they can get their 1000's of hours billing in.

It's called -- Free Republic calls it if no one else will.

It's 2:56 am on the east coast now, and I'm still waiting for the President to come out to announce his victory.

Yes, I'm ready for the party!!!!

Make sure Ann Coulter is the Queen of the Ball. Also, a Michael Moore Pinata would be a hoot. I can't attend, but I'm always full of planning material.

Jim - I would love to come. I have never been to DC so this would be a great trip. I can't know for sure for a wee bit but will there be more thorough listings of total cost (hotels and such)?

Kerry doesn't have any inaugural balls. Well, his comrades in arms knew that all along.

Yup. I believe some of the chapters are going to have regional balls. We're calling it Balls Across America!

I hope that info on the regional Balls Across America can get posted as well as this exciting info. Freepers could well decide to travel to a more regional location if DC isn't possible, but not if they are unaware of it.

This sounds like fun in DC. I will check with hubby.

I'm in.

And I will make it official right here: if there's a Bush-supporting Swift Boat Vet that would like to come but thinks the ticket price is too high, he can have a free ticket on me! It's the least I can do.
