National Review Online had a tenth anniversary party last night:
Who would have thought ten years ago that the stately National Review, of all opinion journals, would come to “own’ internet journalism? Not me. But that’s how it turned out, thanks to the efforts of Jonah Goldberg, Kathryn Lopez, and Rich Lowry who (in his telling) suffered this to happen. For me, NRO is the indispensable web site for conservatives, and I visit its flagship blog, The Corner, more frequently than I visit Power Line.
NRO held a party for its tenth anniversary this evening. Mitt Romney, Kathryn’s choice for 2008 was there, but he was only one of many stars in attendance.
There was no mention of K-Lo trying to explain the mistletoe in October to the dreamy Mr. Mitt, but she did file this report:
For the Record [Kathryn Jean Lopez]
At around 8 pm or so last night, the DJ played, by my request:
Down on the Corner by CCR
New Moon on Monday by Duran Duran
The originial Star Trek theme song
Referring back to the Powerline post, you’ll note that it is time-stamped 9:11PM meaning Paul was able to finish his Zima, hail a cab, and get back to his hotel in land speed record time.
She couldn’t have cleared the room any faster if she had proposed Naked Electric Slide.
