The CPAC 2011 Experience
I am happy to announce I will be attending the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington DC in February. I’m doubly fortunate to have garnered sponsorship with the talented Bank of Kev bloggers and press credentials from Freedomworks. Check the new badge MidnightBlue is sporting on the right side.
Boycotts, libertarian dust ups and teh Gay issue are setting the stage for high drama at CPAC or are some groups simply mistaking their importance to CPAC? I’m looking forward to seeing how this plays out during the conference.
Somethings, however, don’t change at CPAC. The following will happen at CPAC this year:
Andrew Breitbart will have a very public shouting match with (choose your favorite liberal) ; within an hour videos of the ‘debate’ will be viral.
Code Pink will try to crash the CPAC party.
Bottom dwelling journolisters* will find or fabricate evidence of mortal divisions between social conservatives and libertarians or invent curious ways to detect racism. I’m interested in observing which camp is feeding the bottom dwellers fresh meat. *Bottom Dwelling Jouno-listers include but not limited to: Tommy Christopher, Mike (Breitbart Fan Boy) Madden, and Max “Booger” Blumenthal.
Silver sequin heels will make an appearance.
Pamela Gellar and Robert Spencer will present ongoing and uncomfortable issues of Islam. This year she is presenting the movie – The Ground Zero Mosque: The Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks.
Stay tuned for more updates as the conference approaches.
UPDATE: Sean Hackbarth writes the definitive open letter regarding the divisive tactics directed towards conservative ideals of CPAC. The following bit of Sean’s most excellent letter, sums up my position since the November blame game started:
The fusion of economic, national security, and social conservatism has proven successful.
