St. Francis to Host “Tea Party” Debate

On Thursday, October 28, St. Francis College will present a discussion of the “Tea Party” phenomenon that has affected American politics this election year, including New York with Carl Paladino’s capture of the Republican nomination for governor.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle: With Tea Party victories across the country during recent primaries, St. Francis College and the Manhattan Institute come together for a special event on Thursday, Oct. 28 at 6 p.m. for a debate between Steve Malanga of the Manhattan Institute and Jacob Weisberg, editor-in-chief of the Slate Group, on the topic: “Are The Tea Parties Good For New York?”

Malanga, a senior fellow of the conservative Manhattan Institute and editor of the City Journal, will presumably argue for the affirmative of this proposition while Weisberg, editor-in-chief of Slate, the on-line magazine founded by Microsoft and now a unit of the Washington Post, will take the negative side. The event is free. St. Francis is located at 180 Remsen Street, between Clinton and Court.

    This sounds like an interesting debate and I definitely will try to attend. Recently I have been thinking/writing quite a bit aboutthe Tea Party (probably too much). In fact, last month on the Largest Minority Radio Show which I cohost, we had a great conversation on this topic.

    The Tea Party discussion starts with a thoughtful essay around 8-9 minutes into the show.
