RS at CPAC: Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04 PRI).

    We’ve spoken before: Mia is the mayor of Saratoga Springs in the new UT-04 district, and if she wins the primary she hopes to beat Jim Matheson in the general.  We spoke for a few minutes at CPAC: Mia’s site is here.  I don’t often say this, but if I lived in this district I’d be voting for her.  Which is no reflection on the | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: EJ Otero (R CAND, FL-11 PRI).

    Florida is volatile, this cycle: the combination of redistricting, the adding of two seats, and the status of Florida as a battleground state has caused for a lot of jockeying for positioning and seats.  It was pretty much a relief to speak to Col. E.J. Otero, USAF (Ret.), who simply wants to toss out the liberal Kathy Castor from the 11th district. As usual, we | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: Richard Mourdock (R CAND, IN-SEN PRI).

    This particular interview with Richard – we’ve talked with him before about the race – is of interest for another reason: Dave Weigel of Slate happened to reference it in his day-in-the-life article about Richard Mourdock at CPAC.  I don’t have any actual beef with Weigel’s reporting of anything that I was involved with – I did ask those questions, more or less, and I | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: Dan Bongino (R CAND, MD-SEN PRI).

    One of the interesting things about CPAC is, of course, that you can meet a whole lot of different candidates.  Below was my conversation with Dan Bongino, who is a former US Secret Service agent now running for Senate in Maryland against Ben Cardin – and if you don’t remember who Ben Cardin is, don’t worry.  Cardin’s an amazingly generic Senator who, on his good | Read More »

    Occupiers lose Battle of Wardman Park

    The basic premise of the Occupations, including Occupy DC, is that they, the “99%”, are not being heard in elections, so they must impose themselves on spaces where they are not welcome in order to force their message out. It’s a strategy reminiscent of George Lincoln Rockwell’s Phase One for the American Nazi Party, and I expect it to be just as ineffective at achieving | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: Jim DeMint Q & A.

    Right to work issues, mostly. Moe Lane (crosspost)

    CPAC Protester Brain Freeze Over Simple Question

    Today, outside CPAC’s annual meeting at Washington’s Marriott Wardman Park, union supporters and Occupy DC activists gathered to protest. One lady wearing an Occupy DC lapel pin proudly displayed a sign stating “Walmart for President.” Although given multiple opportunities to explain what her sign meant, she stumbled aimlessly for the right words, eventually stating, “I’m going to have to think about that.”

    A Severe Conservative Speaks at CPAC

    Mitt Romney got a warm reception at CPAC, standing ovations . . . the works. He did nothing to calm fears that he is not one of us. In fact, he might have made it worse today. He ad-libbed one particular portion of his speech that just may give away the game for him with the CPAC crowd. He threw in this line: “I fought | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: see the Occupiers! (Open thread)

    And tremble at their might! They have tents, you see. Tents which they carry with them, everywhere that they go. For JUSTICE! Moe Lane (crosspost) PS: Open thread. These goofballs aren’t even worth a full post.
