At Least I Have Something to Ask Him Now…

At Least I Have Something to Ask Him Now…

Only Glenn Reynolds (who is somewhere at CPAC, though I’ve not seen him yet), can begin a blog post with the words “I’m a Moby Grape fan…” and not hemorrhage readers like the back seat passenger in a Quentin Tarantino movie. I now have a post tag category for Moby Grape now, in case you […]

CPAC Day 3 – The Coulter Club

CPAC Day 3 – The Coulter Club

| February 28, 2009 | 6 Replies

Ann Coulter is a for-real rock star, especially among young conservatives, many of whom have been standing on line behind me for the past hour just to get her autograph. That doesn’t include the people who were lining up at 11:45 for her 12:30 speech. Yes, fully-fledged members of Generation ADHD were standing patiently for […]

CPAC Day 3 – The Recovering

Yesterday was a light posting day for me for a couple reasons. First, I was a lot less mobile around the convention because I walked my legs off on Thursday (Icy Hot is your friend). Second, I had met most of the people I really wanted to meet so I wasn’t pressed to go dashing […]

CPAC Day 2 – The Newt!

I had the opportunity to sit in on an informal talk given by Newt Gingrich, Saul Anuzis, and Rick Berman of American Solutions (Saul is a very useful guy who gets around quite a lot) on Newt’s “12 American Solutions”. They’re doing interesting stuff, working off of a premise that seems obvious but apparently isn’t. […]

CPAC Day 1b – Rule 5 Blogging

In keeping with Stacy’s Rule 5, I want to toss up a couple hastily-edited photographs from today’s festivities (at least the ones I have ready so far). You’ve already heard a bit about Skye. Well, here she is, partially-eclipsed by a large and happy man: Then, thanks to Stacy, here’s Michelle Muccio. More Rule Five […]

CPAC Episode Ia: Is That Who I think It Is?

| February 26, 2009 | 1 Reply

It is impossible to go more than 30 steps around here without meeting someone you “know” and it is really easy to turn a 20-minute walkabout into a 45 minute expedition. I learned this first-hand as I briefly parted from Skye to make my way outside for a cigarette, walked around the corner and… …Holy […]

CPAC Episode I: The Blogger Menace

So I’ve been at CPAC since the morning and I can safely say that I am very nearly overwhelmed. There is way too much for any one man to cover, so I’ve decided that I will wander about until I find something or someone interesting. That strategy paid off after not even 20 minutes. I […]

Surprise: Yet Another Obama Nominee Played Fast and Loose with the Law

I guess that the third time is the charm for President Obama. He’s nominated former Washington Governor Gary Locke to be his Commerce Secretary. Locke has gained a name for himself as an expert on China due to his work in a law firm that’s done quite a lot of work there. I don’t know […]

Man, the stuff you read on Twitter. This beaut is from @cajunmaverick, who runs Conservative Grassroots: Denny’s offering a new breakfast called the “Octo-Mommy”: 14 eggs, no sausage, and the guy sitting next to you pays the bill. That’s funnier than anything Jon Stewart and Bill Maher have done in a month, and you got […]
