We’ve been working on this for a couple weeks. In the meantime others have been using the same theme at demonstrations, most notably at the Supreme Court. It’s a fitting legacy for Andrew.

Hope you can make it. We have a great time. Usually we go for dinner/snacks at the Hilton bar and watch the dinner on the bar TVs.

One year, long ago, Barbara Olson asked us to watch her table for us while she fetched her husband, Ted, and Joe Allbaugh.

We also met Jay Leno just outside the bar after the dinner when he performed.

Rats, the Valentine bros have to be in Charleston, SC for a Mandatory family event. Can’t you get the Coorespondents to move the date to the week before or the week after?
I will be wearing my BB T if it ever gets here.

To all freepers who can attend—be there or be square! It’s a good time with no worries about the lefties acting up. After all, the President with all his secret service protection will be at the dinner.

Great news! Hope that weather forecast holds. I think we've participated in two of these fun WHCA FReeps before - rain always seemed to be in the forecast.

We're about 90% sure we can be there on Saturday... looking forward to seeing many DC FReepers there... it's been awhile!

Hi nutmeg, we went last year, stayed at the Hilton with a room view of the front entrance. It was so much fun! Sat in the lobby to watch the peeps coming in and the bar afterwards to see some of the rich and stupid journalists, celebrities.
We never did find the FReeper bunch, there are so many people out on the street in front protesting or cheering.
Be sure to get a cell phone number of someone so you can find them!

“Breitbart is Here because you’re not”

Unfortunately I have a conflict that requires me to be in Charleston so I’ll “have to be there in spirit.”

It depends on who shows up with what kind of equipment. And it depends on the ever-changing weather forecast.

I had to make up my mind last night about attending the Freep. It was a hard decision, but this ankle just wouldn’t be able to take it. The old “Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” thing?

Hope someone is able to get on line and keep us posted on who you see, who you are able to FReep and what conservtives you were able to speak to.

FReep on!
