CPAC Musings: Atlas’s Perch

Hating leaving CPAC yesterday but real life insists. As for the CPAC experience there is nothing like being in a well established hotel, bar right, with thousands of like minded souls. The conservative movement is very much in sync. The palpable excitement and headiness of the convergence were quickly dashed when Romney exited stage right. […]READ MORE

I thought Ann was great

Watch her video here. But she’s wrong. We can’t vote for Obama (and it’s going to be Obama). We’ve got to vote for the Republican. That’s a fact. We are still mopping up after  Dhimmi Carter – actually it’s worse now because the fruit from his poison tree is in full flower. Four bad Presidential […]READ MORE

CPAC: Morning with Cheney

Before I comment on Cheney’s remarks let me say what I found most notable was his silence on the Presidential election. Not one word. Spoke volumes. No mention borders either.

CPAC BOUND

Enroute to DC. Hanging at the airport with (/not!) Cyntohis Mckinney Sheila Jackson Lee (forgive me , it was the braids and the politics that threw me – thanks Geoff!) who is yelling on her phone about universal healthcare. I kid you not. You can’t make this stuff up. CPAC! Romney! McCain! Bush! Cheney! Bolton! […]READ MORE
