Cato’s 40th anniversary party was everything you could have dreamed and more.

After 40 years of hard work promoting the destruction of the welfare state, arguing against child labor protections, and fighting the good fight against Public Enemy No. 1 (Mr. Government Overreach), who can blame the Cato Institute for blowing off some steam? Not me, that’s for sure. Koch money can buy you the country, but from the looks of it, it can’t buy you a cool party. Please enjoy this compilation of social media posts from D.C.’s libertarian elite.
