Meet Rick Barber (R-CAND, AL-02). [Bumped.]

    [UPDATE]: I’m bumping this because I’ve been told that it was Rick’s birthday yesterday. Campaign site here: he’s running for Bobby Bright’s seat. That’s the last CPAC election video that I had today: I have a full slate scheduled for tomorrow, God help me. Crossposted to Moe Lane.

    Meet Patricia Sullivan (R CAND, FL-08).

    I am almost done with the candidate interviews (I also spoke to a few other sitting politicians and activists) from CPAC: this is Patricia Sullivan, who is running for the privilege of removing Alan Grayson from Congress. Her website is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.

    “Come to Jesus” at CPAC 2010

    It happened this weekend at CPAC.  It was the first time I’d ever attended a conservative convention and all the way up to 6:00 pm on Saturday, I thought that I had figured out what this convention would mean to me and how it would affect my outlook on the 2010 elections, the Republican Party, Libertarians and so on.  I could not have been more | Read More »

    Great CPAC Coverage – Thanks!

    Erick and the folks at Red State did a great job providing timely and in-depth coverage of CPAC. Thanks for all you do!

    A quick CPAC sitdown with Michael Williams.

    He’s running for the Senate seat that Senator Hutchinson is going to vacate (assuming that she ever does), and I was able to touch base with him in between his speaking appearances at CPAC. Michael’s site is here: for those of you unaware of the odd nature of Texan nomenclature, a “Texas Railroad Commissioner” doesn’t actually have oversight over railroads. The position instead involves oversight | Read More »

    The Top Ten Reasons to attend CPAC

    I had the privilege of attending CPAC 2010, not only as an attendee; but as a member of the Blogger’s Lounge. Therefore I had a chance to see, hear, meet and greet and be a part of  many “behind the scenes” stories and events. There were also a couple of “events” which have stuck in my memory I stumbled on by happenstance. So in particular | Read More »

    The Leader

    Many, many reporters have asked me who the leader of the conservative movement is right now or who the leader of the tea party movement is. They rarely report the answer, though they should be paying attention to it. In the CPAC straw poll, one name dominated the pack. With the highest favorable ratings (73%) and lowest unfavorable ratings (8%), Senator Jim DeMint of South | Read More »

    The Good, The Bad, The Discordant, and the Uncomfortable

    “Conservatism is on the ascendency. But it will ascend within the GOP, not via a third party.” Now that I’ve had twelve hours of sleep after four days of three hour nights, I can settle in and focus on the CPAC that was and was not. There was no dominant theme at CPAC this year, which was surprising. The Ron Paul kids were out in | Read More »

    Meet Tim Burns (R CAND, PA-12).

    Meet Les Phillip (R CAND, AL-05).

    There are still quite a few ones to process from CPAC, so here’s Les Phillip. His website is here. Crossposted to RedState.

    Scenes from CPAC: me and DemonSheep on Stage Right Show Friday night.

    Below the fold is Friday night’s Stage Right Show: I’m on, starting at about 31:10. And I’m promptly upstaged by the very next interviewee, too. Yes, I was followed by – and shown up by – DemonSheep (and Leon Wolf). I had a lot of fun doing it anyway. Larry O’Connor, by the way, is the guy who the next day eviscerated Max Blumenthal after | Read More »

    You stay classy, Romney fans

    When I heard the results of the CPAC voting I was rather surprised (as probably most everyone was), and then I saw a video of them announcing Paul as the winner and there were boos, and it seemed a bit odd.  But a while ago I saw a longer version of the video, that doesn’t just show them announcing the winner, but announcing all the results.  | Read More »

    The CPAC Chuck DeVore interview.

    Not a very interesting title, but I am very, very tired. Part 2 Chuck DeVore website here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
