Live from Bloggers Row at CPAC (sponsored by Pajamas Media)
Again, nothing much happening here today — one of the bright lights of the mainstream conservative movement went on air and gushed that everyone who matters to conservatism is here at CPAC (thank God I decided to crash this bitch; I don’t think my psyche could have withstood further marginalization) before going on to interview an Obama bolster with whom he had a good chuckle over how dumb and hypocritical many rank and file conservatives who don’t have radio shows are — but beyond that, it’s more of the same, really: the specter of Jesus is everywhere, and the occasional Patterico reader marches by with a big sign reading “NOT IN MY NAME,” a kind of surreal sight, given that they’re all wearing smoking jackets and top hats and wagging their fingers indiscriminately at anyone who looks like s/he might listen to Rush Limbaugh without the requisite sense of sophisticated coastal irony.
Later, I understand Ann Coulter is scheduled to give a combination lecture /pole dance. But in all honesty, I’ll probably shed my tie and flag lapel pin by then, see if I can’t find a local bar, and get myself totally shitfaced on bloody marys.
I’m pretty sure drinking to excess is encouraged under the new stimulus package. I’m just gonna have to remember to have the bartender send my tab to Congress.
