    What is the Misfits Ball? Glenn announced on radio this morning that he plans to have a ball on Inauguration Day full of people who are no longer welcome in Obama’s Washington D.C. (editor’s note: We aren’t sure if the “That Guy” rule applies to digital, which is why we will occasionally mention the President by name until Glenn stops us). The event will be black tie, take place in the Dallas Studios, and Glenn is open to suggestions for the invite list. Some of the names thrown out there so far: Chik-Fil-A (not a person, Glenn), Hobby Lobby (again,...

    According to TSO who was at the “Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball”, this newly sworn-in President for the first time in 56 years blew off the ball (that’s 14 Inaugurations). TSO is one of the Mil-bloggers at "This Ain't Hell". A tradition for over a half century until "The Loser" with his nose in the air snubbed the Medal of Honor winners.

    Excerpt - When I want to relax and unwind, there’s nothing I enjoy more than picking up my bass guitar and rocking with my band “Capitol Offense.” We’ve played at a presidential inaugural ball and opened for the likes of Willie Nelson and Dionne Warwick. Of all the great gigs I’ve played, I have to say some of my most memorable music sessions were when I had the privilege of jamming with Arkansas Blues Legend John Weston. Whether on the corner over at Bubba’s Blues Corner in Helena, my hometown of Hope, or in Little Rock, it was always a...

    Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee likes to rock. And he’s bringing his bass guitar to Washington, plus some strong political ambitions. Huckabee’s eight-member group, Capitol Offense, is the only band with a sitting governor as leader. It will play at an inaugural ball hosted by the Web site Free Republic. In 2001, the band played for a party at George W. Bush’s first inauguration. Last summer, they jammed at a Republican National Convention party. “We play the tunes baby boomers danced to during high school and college,” says Huckabee, 49. “We try to bring back good memories and make new ones.”...

Tickets to all official inaugural events, two additional tickets to an "exclusive" lunch with Mr. Bush and Vice President Cheney, plus an all-access pass to any inaugural ball: $250,000. Telling your friends, "As I explained to the president just the other day... .": priceless.

    Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and his rock 'n' roll band, Capitol Offense, will headline the Jan. 20 inaugural ball hosted by Free Republic, a grass-roots conservative news, analysis and activism forum, in Washington. It's a repeat performance for the 49-year-old Mr. Huckabee, whose gubernatorial term expires in 2007. Because of the high-spirited show put on by his band at the 2001 Free Republic Inaugural Ball and Count the White House Silverware Party, guests left other inaugural balls in favor of the governor's less-formal gig, which, this year, honors the U.S. armed forces.
