What Kind Of Moron Pays $200 To Drink At CPAC?

CPAC opens with a bang on Thursday with a party known as Blog Bash.

For the first time ever, they’re letting in “allies,” paid bloggers and other lost souls who don’t have access to a sponsor ticket.

Partygoers may purchase two kinds of tickets: 1. A Blog Bash “Ally” ticket for $106.49 or 2. The VIP version for $211.99.

Both have their downfalls, so read up: If you fall under category 1, you are a communication staffer, paid blogger, journalist or other ally who don’t have access to a Blog Bash 2015 ticket. There is a catch: The host committee writes, “The Host Committee and Registration Team reserve the right to deny any persons prior or at the event.” If you’re in category 2, you get in earlier to mingle with the “VIP’s.” But there’s a catch here, too: “Psst, there may or may not also be an open bar during this period.;)”

So let’s get this straight. If you pay $100 plus a fee of $6.49, you may be turned away at the door. If you pay double that, plus an $11.99 fee, you may or may not have an open bar situation. At this point, you’ll be so miserable you’ll be begging for a drink. Who cares how much that’ll cost you?

Serious question: What kind of fool falls for a costly soirée?

Event details on Facebook are as follows:


For the first time ever, Blog Bash is allowing in allies who do not meet the qualifications to enter as unpaid bloggers and/or do not have access to a sponsor ticket.
