CPAC - Friday Morning

Here I am back in the Bloggers' Lounge bright and early and Herman Cain is speaking. He's good. He's a businessman from Pennsylvania and a Fox business news contributor. Too bad there are so few people in the room. I'd never heard of this guy before. Wish they'd given him a different slot because he could have pumped up an audience.

Where is everybody? I was in the lounge drinking along with everybody else and I'm here. I went to bed a little after midnight, but maybe they didn't. I didn't start until late because I had to "appear" on a radio talk show in Florida at 9:00 PM with Andrea Shea King, whom I met last year here. She's a sketch and I wanted to float around to the various bloggers' receptions she always hears about.

Met so many great people from all over the country and we're all here for the same reason - we're conservatives. There were as many in the lounge alone as there are in all of Maine.
I attended an awards ceremony at Accuracy in Media (AIM) where Marc Morano got an award for his wonderful work on Climategate. Andrew Breitbart was getting one too for his expose of ACORN and it was a small venue. He's a pit bull with liberals. Love to watch him whenever I can. Both guys gave great presentations. AIM has picked up my pieces a few times in their "guest columns" section and I'm proud to be associated with them in a small way.
Got to get ready for Pam Geller's thing at 10:00. Don't want to miss that! More later.

It is a good thing that you are there and it must be gratifying to be among like-minded people...but are the speakers preaching only to the choir? If only they could be heard loudly and persistently enough to counteract some of the liberal twaddle that appearselsewhere in the media.

Do you attend meetings of the 'opposition'? Just curious.

This thing is a big like-minded circle jerk. Kind of like a KKK rally. Normal people who are not part of the Radical Fringe Wacko Right have no desire to listen to this deceitful, hateful, ranted propaganda.

I'm enjoying your reports. Will keep checking in to read your updates. Looking forward to read about Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer's special reception about the Jihad.

Like-minded? I think Closed-minded would be more fitting.

If you have an illustrated dictionary you can see a picture of Tom!

You are right Jim, there are not any racists, bigots, or homophobes without a closed mind.

I like Rush Limbaugh's definition of "bigot": Someone who wins an argument with a liberal.

Wow, Rush doesn't think there are ANY bigots in the world?!?
