Cain-Gingrich Debate Prices Get a Mean Side-Eye

GOP presidential candidates Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich have been toying with my emotions lately.

The two men are participating in a debate matchup on Saturday, November 5 in The Woodlands, Texas. This is a fundraiser for The Woodlands Tea Party PAC. Tickets start at $200 each and range up to $1,000.

Student tickets are “only” $150, but they are sold out according to the event website.

Yes. This is the same Newton Leroy Gingrich and Herman Cain that have earned your side-eyes from the 1,834 debates that have aired in the past two months. Cain’s star has been rising, but Gingrich is still stuck firmly on the political D-list in this campaign.

So, please tell me why any debate with these two would be charging a $200 base price for entry? Is the resurrected Michael Jackson performing at intermission?

The event hosts will only be serving apple pie, coffee, and tea, according to the website. Hell, I was expecting an additional filet mignon and a rock lobster tail for those prices.

One positive about the matchup is that Cain and Gingrich will use the Lincoln-Douglas debate style to dig deeper into some of the issues of the day. The format will allow them to talk at length more. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) will serve as the moderator.

No broadcast network has yet agreed to air the shenanigans.
