This post is Palin-free.

Oh…. Well… fuck.

Anyway, as you may remember from back in the days when Michael Jackson still roamed the earth, the guys at RedState decided to plan a get-together in Atlanta in August because it’s close by to where Erick Erickson lives August in Atlanta is so awesome. With a fistful of  non-refundable $15 deposits in hand, a conference room was booked, double-occupancy hotel rooms were reserved (hilarious hijinks and misunderstandings galore to follow), and guest speakers were lined up, although we expect that the speakers roster will probably contain 100% less Sanford than originally planned.

To keep the anticipation at a fevered pitch (will there be celebrities? an all-u-can-eat-bacon-bar? one of those inflatable jumpy-things?) SuperSmart Grand Commandante Extreme XXL Erick Erickson has been teasing out bits and pieces of information just like an M. Night Shyamalan movie that you know is just going to suck at the end but you shell out $12  again because you’re just kind of stupid that way.

9:45 – 10:45 Right Online

Mmmmmm. Smell the excitement.

Or maybe that’s the all-u-can-eat-bacon-bar.  It’s kind of hard to tell…

(Update): Here’s today’s (7/7) big announcement:

9:10 – 9:35: Congressman Tom Price (R-GA), Chairman of the Republican Study Committee

9:45 – 10:45 Right Online

10:45 – 11:15 Hon. Karen Handel, Georgia’s Secretary of State

11:15 – 11:30 BREAK

Because after 30 minutes of Karen Handel, that 15 minute break will come in handy.
