CNN and National Journal’s Politics on Tap with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

Politics on Tap Invite-SEPT-v3ACNN and National Journal are back with their second installment of its Politics on Tap series, with this time, a focus on the upcoming midterm elections and the top issues facing candidates.

To start, CNN’s Dana Bash will sit down – brew in hand – with National Journal’s Congressional leadership reporter Tim Alberta and Washington editor Ben Pershing on the fight for control of the Senate as well as which races to watch. CNN’s Jake Tapper and NJ’s Ron Fournier will then join Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to discuss the top issues of the cycle. Will he announce his candidacy for president (see this Washington Post article)? Who knows! Is an open bar event the perfect venue for him to do so? Definitely!

The invite has yet to go out, but we’ve posted it after the jump, RSVP dets omitted (sorry). It should go out later today or tomorrow, but should you not receive, try sucking up to your CNN and NJ friends to be added to the list. Read more

CNN and National Journal to Host ‘Politics on Tap’ with Sen. John McCain

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 15.41.52Look out BuzzFeed Brews. There’s a new beer drinking news platform in town.

CNN and National Journal are joining forces to explore the midterm elections the best way possible…with a cold one in hand.

Dubbed “Politics on Tap,” the program will feature an interview by CNN’s Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper and NJ’s Ron Fournier of Sen. John McCain followed by a panel discussion with CNN’s Peter Hamby NJ’s Michelle Cottle, and CNN’s Brianna Keilar on the growing divide in the Republican Party and how the changing face of the GOP and Congressional leadership may impact this November’s midterm elections.

Slated for next Thursday at Sixth Engine, the invite (which hasn’t gone out yet) is a steal in that a-the topic is definitely interesting and b-who doesn’t want to drink with this crowd. Only thing that could make it better is if Rep. Aaron Schock were involved.

We’ll be there, and hope to see you there, too!

See the invite – sans RSVP dets (sorry) – after the jump. Cheers! Read more

Morning Chatter

“THIS time????? Lordie Lord Lord.”National Journal‘s Ron Fournier‘s dramatic response to New York mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner saying in his concession speech, “Sadly we did not win this time.”

“#YOLO”BuzzFeed‘s Matt Zeitlin‘s response to colleague Ruby Cramer‘s news that a “reporter with NBC Ch4, Shimon Prokupecz, says Weiner gave him the finger from car as he drove away.”

Inappropriate cuisine metaphor?

“Later in the day, @NRO’s NY office would smell like barbecue. All those lives lost …” — National Review Online‘s Kathryn Lopez.

Journo looks back…

“In our DC bureau blocks from the WH as the city emptied out & the Humvees rolled in. Bldg mgmt tried to evacuate us: ‘No way.’ #wherewereyou” — WSJ‘s Neil King, reflecting on where he was on 9-11-01.

A lawmaker’s probing question…

“So a lawmaker finished an interview by asking me if I was Syrian.” — National Journal writer-at-large Marin Cogan.

Confessional.

“It felt so wrong tonight when I ate sugar free jello for the first time.” — Chairman of Accuracy in Media Don Irvine.

Important Q we must all ponder: “Why do I have a sad feeling that Weiner’s trusty camera phone is definitely plugged in the charger tonight, powering up.” — GOP political consultant Mike Murphy.

Weiner Aftermath: The Deflation Begins

“Sitcom idea: Spitzer, Weiner both thrown out by their wives, move in together, start wacky political consulting firm.” – Commentary‘s John Podhoretz.

“Anthony Weiner is about to concede so that he can begin his campaign to be the 5th host of Crossfire.” — The Atlantic‘s Andrew Golis.

“BREAKING: Carlos Danger concession speech within the hour #NYC2013.” — Andres Duque, who writes the Blabbeando blog.

“TV folks tempted to give Anthony Weiner a talk show. Do another thing and don’t give Anthony Weiner a talk show.” — Politico‘s Ben White.

“Weiner’s concession speech is live channel 2 in NYC now. The guy looks like he’s actually having fun. What a nut.” — CNN’s Ari Fleischer.

“Prediction: Huma Abedin files for divorce within 60 days. Right?” — WUSA-9 reporter Debra Alfarone.

The Observer

“So Weiner thanked his flak but not his wife in his concession speech?” — Politico‘s Blake Hounshell.

Oops, a little late for this!

“Don’t you dare with the jokes Twitter THIS IS OVER NOW” — Politico‘s Leigh Munsil.

Poetic irony is….

“Prez Obama keeps bust of MLK in his office which means he stares each workday at a man who met hatred & evil with non-violence. Worth noting.” — NPR’s Michele Norris.

NYT‘s Brian Stelter gets Marty’d at 11:03 Tuesday night

“@brianstelter Will you be Hosting CNN’s ‘Reliable Sources’ again in the future? Did you happen to see Howard Kurtz’s ‘Media Bites’ Show-Fox?” — Marty Rudolf. (Pssst…Marty, Howie’s show is “Media Buzz.”)

 And Funniest Tweet of the Night award goes to…

“Well placed source emails me: ‘Today is the worst 24 hour period in U.S. Foreign Policy history. Dear god.’” — Breitbart.com‘s illustrious Matthew Boyle.
