Palin to speak at CPAC

posted at 8:01 am on February 12, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

If you’ve been dithering about whether to attend this year’s CPAC, Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle has news that ups the ante significantly. Sarah Palin will again speak at the annual conservative-activist gathering taking place at National Harbor next month:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Breitbart News has learned exclusively. CPAC is an annual gathering of thousands of conservative activists hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU).

“We are pleased to again welcome Governor Sarah Palin to CPAC in March,” ACU Chairman Al Cardenas said in a release provided to Breitbart News. “Governor Palin electrified the crowd in 2013, and we are thrilled to welcome her back this year.”

Palin served as the governor of Alaska from late 2006 until 2009, and was the 2008 Vice Presidential nominee for the Republican Party. In the years since the 2008 election, Palin has been an unstoppable force, organizing conservatives and preparing them for battle against both the Democrats and the GOP establishment in Washington. She is a Fox News contributor and frequent thorn in the side of any career politician pushing big government policies. …

The ACU also notes that Palin is a “three time New York Times best selling Author” and “has a new show ‘Amazing America’ debuting on the Sportsman Channel on April 3rd.”

I missed last year’s CPAC, as I was covering the papal conclave — but we had Erika on the job, as well as Guy and Katie and the rest of the Townhall crew. I’ll be there this year, and am looking forward to Palin’s appearance. She’ll bring the house down as she usually does, with sardonic jabs at a few preferred targets. One has to wonder whether any Republicans might be among them this year.

Palin will provide an interesting contrast to the previously-announced headliner, Chris Christie, who wants to build some credibility with grassroots on the Right. He’s taking a beating in New Jersey thanks to Bridgegate, but the media obsession with an abuse of power over a bridge closing while ignoring much worse abuses in Washington has some conservatives defending Christie … albeit grudgingly, at least for now.

We still have no word on the keynote speaker, but the conference doesn’t start until March 6, and that usually gets announced just shy of ticket-closing time. This announcement brings up an intriguing question: who would make a bigger splash than Palin as a keynote? Matthew lists the speakers already confirmed:

Other confirmed speakers for CPAC include Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rand Paul (R-KY), and Ted Cruz (R-TX), House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), Govs. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) and Chris Christie (R-NJ), former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA), businessman Donald Trump, and Dr. Ben Carson.

We’ll see who the ACU chooses to close out the conference, and maybe see you there, too.

Addendum: Just for full disclosure, Townhall is one of the sponsors for CPAC 2014.

CPAC is one of the worst events in the country.

Sarah Palin is not a leader. Stop saying that she represents anyone except herself…

Great, she made a soda joke about Bloomberg. So, let her do standup. We need actual people on the right who understand issues, can speak with resolve and determination, and aren’t cartoon characters.

What the hell is the fat man doing speaking at CPAC? What could the bastard who endorsed Obama possibly say that would build credibilty with grassroots conservatives? Does Christie know what the acronym CPAC stands for?

Um….. You do realize that the only reason why death panels came to the public attention was Palin, right? You dismiss Sarah Palin as a political lightweight at your own peril. She’s far more attuned to the issues than the media narrative you’re spouting.

And BTW, I can see CPAC from my backyard (literally).

I for one am suprised that open registration didn’t bring a lot of paid RINO/establishment shill accounts with it.

I expected a lot of RINO accounts posting shilling for the establishment and RINOs while attacking the tea party and conservatives after open registration but there were only a few of them posting in the debt ceiling threads for example.

crankyoldlady on February 12, 2014 at 8:28 AM

That was nearly 5 years ago. I credit her with her activism in the Tea Party and her public criticism of both the Obama Administration and her own party. And yes, she was right about death panels although that’s almost irrelevant at this point with the entire Obamacare law self-destructing.

But here’s where Palin’s act(and yes, a lot of it is an act) has lost me over the last few years. There’s a limit to how influential you can be when you limit yourself to Facebook posts, tweets, and the occasional speech and FoxNews appearance. I’m not saying the woman needs to hold elected office to make a difference(although imagine how much she could do as a member of the Senate), but what she’s doing right now feels more like showbiz than politics.

Who are you going to bet on? The Barracuda or the Washington establishment? That establishment has never let up on Palin (see her dad’s six IRS audits since she was nominated, the first six of his life). As Rush says they will tell you who they fear. Meanwhile, I’d say, as to the score of this game or war, she is ahead.

He’s not new and he is one of our saner liberals.

Cindy Munford on February 12, 2014 at 9:03 AM

She does not have the attributes of a leader.
She has a WEAK command of the English language….can’t articulate her thoughts properly and couldn’t even complete her term as governor.

liberalrules on February 12, 2014 at 8:59 AM

Agreed. Listen to the Snowbilly here, it’s pathetic.

I hate quitters. Imagine quitting your elected term partway through.

Side issue: San Diego has a new Mayor – a republican.

jake-the-goose on February 12, 2014 at 8:57 AM

Kewl. I guess it’s expensive to live there. I lived in the LA area but for some reason never got to San Diego. I always wanted to trave but have never left the country. I’ve been in Detroit but never went to Canada and never went to Mexico.

David Brooks, is that you?

Hey Ed, seriously, there’s got to be better vetting of new members when enrollment is opened.

WordsMatter on February 12, 2014 at 8:57 AM

Vera is one of the old, moldy trolls.

Steve Eggleston on February 12, 2014 at 9:04 AM

Lot of hate here today, can’t we all just get along.

Bishop on February 12, 2014 at 8:58 AM

No, Reg :-P

Bishop on February 12, 2014 at 9:03 AM

You’re right. That is a mark against her.

crankyoldlady on February 12, 2014 at 9:05 AM

I’d love to see Ashton Kutcher. It’s time he came out of the (conservative) closet. And he’s good talking to the youths.

monalisa on February 12, 2014 at 9:07 AM

crankyoldlady on February 12, 2014 at 9:03 AM

When compared to LA or Orange County – or up North – San Diego is cheap, at least in sections – not La Jolla for instance.

jake-the-goose on February 12, 2014 at 9:07 AM

She was the governor of Alaska and apparently a good one. Why does nobody give her credit for that?

crankyoldlady on February 12, 2014 at 8:28 AM

I think it’s because Alaska is the ultimate in flyover country.

The credit she doesn’t get that I think she richly deserves is how she took on her own party and busted up a lot of corruption. She also divested the state from owning a dairy farm and changed the rules on oil leases to make the oil companies start producing or give up their leases.

I believe these are the reasons she had to resign. When she got back to Alaska, she found she had no friends on the left or the right and it was open season on her with the bogus ethics complaints.

She actually governed using conservative values and we just can’t have that, no, no, no.

Can’t fault for her quitting. I do however fault her for supporting McAmnesty

Holy cow!

Cindy Munford on February 12, 2014 at 9:11 AM

Leaders don’t quit on their people half way.

liberalrules on February 12, 2014 at 9:03 AM

President McGolferston was too busy picking his basketball bracket to reply, meanwhile governance in the republic is in a complete meltdown as he assumes the mantle of emperor changing law on a whim.

But yeah, Palin. 2008 called, they said to move on.

Difficultas_Est_Imperium on February 12, 2014 at 9:12 AM

Good. And let the reprobates commence confession.

Cindy Munford on February 12, 2014 at 9:11 AM

You guys do understand that in comparison to the rest of today’s California, San Diego and nearby Orange County are far right wing, right?

It’s really not too surprising considering the corruption cases that the San Diego’s mayoral office has had in recent years.

Difficultas_Est_Imperium on February 12, 2014 at 9:16 AM

Holy cow!

Cindy Munford on February 12, 2014 at 9:11 AM

Kevin Faulconer defeated a Hispanic Democrats by 10 points !!!!

Fallon on February 12, 2014 at 9:18 AM

She has a WEAK command of the English language….can’t articulate her thoughts properly

liberalrules on February 12, 2014 at 8:59 AM

Her grammatical gaffes bother me, too. However, Obama is very articulate (when there’s a teleprompter in the room) and he has been a lousy president. Bush was much better and he had the occasional grammar problem. Therefore, I’ve stopped considering good grammar and articulation as a requirement in a presidential candidate.

Occams Stubble on February 12, 2014 at 9:18 AM

Palin to speak at CPAC

I should hope so. No one on the Conservative side fires up the crowd in quite the same way. Maybe she can tandem with Cruz again. That was one of the best!

eaders don’t quit on their people half way.

Offered to pay her legal biils due to the Cancer
that infected her State did you?
Yeah, i can see where that would leave a sour taste in
your mouth…

ToddPA on February 12, 2014 at 9:19 AM

Sarah Palin is not a leader. Stop saying that she represents anyone except herself…

Washington Fancy on February 12, 2014 at 8:09 AM

Okay.
Do you prefer some professional hack who is out to enrich #1?

She may not be finely honed, or experienced (like Barky?), but she speaks truth and is consistently conservative and defends our country and constitution. Better than many others.

She may not be the one, but I’d rather one like her instead of a Beltway insider.

freedomfirst on February 12, 2014 at 9:19 AM

I suggest you find a new person to “represent” you.

liberalrules on February 12, 2014 at 8:59 AM

I don’t need a person to rally around. But it sure is nice to hear from someone who actually fought corruption inside government. We need more of that.
