Penii For The Fjords

The lineup for the August 2013 National Review Cruise in Norway has just been announced, and it's even more of a sausage fest than usual.  Every one of the "guest speakers" on the cruise, from Jonah Goldberg to Dick Morris to John Podhoretz, is a genetic male.  Not a single lady, or Maggie Gallagher, among them.  I suppose this makes sense if your target customers are elderly widows and confirmed bachelors of a certain age.  

Though National Review has already reduced the price at least once, "convservative cruisers" will still enjoy all of the following:
Scintillating seminars with NR editors and guest speakers, along with plenty of passenger Q&A.
Plenty of chances to meet, schmooze and enjoy personal interaction with our special guest speakers.
Exclusive Parties and Dining with our special guest speakers. You will dine with your fellow National Review attendees, so that you have the chance to meet many of your fellow conservative cruisers.
Intimate dining on two evenings with a guest speaker or editor.
Three revelrous cocktail receptions.
One late-night "smoker" featuring world-class H. Upmann cigars.
And should the thinkable, but nevertheless tragic, happen, cruisers will get to see Paul Johnson or John O'Sullivan sent to his eternal reward atop an authentic Norse funeral pyre.

Wow. Not only do you get to schmooze with the special guest speakers but enjoy personal interaction as well. I'm guessing that K-Lo wrote the copy.

I'm guessing this will be a Carnival Cruise, given their experience with disasters.

Uh, what kind of "revelrous" cocktail receptions could an all-male "family values" assemblage possibly have?

That depends entirely upon whether or not the Log Cabin Republicans crash the party.

Just think of the scintillating conversation, though! Jonah the Fail holding forth on, well, almost any topic would be hilarious.

Wonder if there will be any female crew members. How tragic any women trapped aboard with these luminaries and their marks.

Just announced: New lower pricing.

Just announced: Allen West to join Norway cruise.

Sounds like things are going great around the old NR.

I see they're stopping in Flam. Hope they also visit Flim in honor of Paul Ryan.

An all male 'cruise' stopping in Amsterdam? Which means there boat has to stop in Central Amsterdam, or Holland's version of the gay ghetto. The Red Light district intermingles with the gay leather bars, so ya know...

Hey, I just heard they added Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann and Pam Geller to the roster. I hope you feel better now.

Nope. Still no Vagina-Americans on the speaker list!

I feel even better that I'm not on the cruise.

Unquestionably imagine that which you said. Your favourite justification appeared to
be on the internet the simplest thing to remember of. I say to you, I
definitely get irked whilst folks consider concerns that they just do not recognize about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
the whole thing without having side effect , people can take
a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
