posted at 1:34 pm on February 28, 2013 by

All right — now CPAC is officially a party:

WASHINGTON, DC – Continuing their partnership for a second year, TownHall is the latest sponsor to return to Blog Bash for the 2013 event on March 14 during the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor, Maryland.

“The Townhall and HotAir team is pleased to partner with Blog Bash again this year. Townhall.com and HotAir.com are two of the leading online destinations for conservatives and, as a part of the movement, it is important the media and bloggers come together rather than compete.”  -Linlee Dubard, Marketing Director for TownHall.com, HotAir and TownHall Magazine.

TownHall maintains close ties with BlogBash and has featured many of the past winners and featured guests in their daily news coverage, including Michelle Malkin, Katie Pavlich, Ed Morrissey of HotAir.com and 2013 nominee, Scottie Hughes.

“TownHall understands the importance of investing in the right-of-center blogosphere,” said Ali Akbar, co-host of the event. “We appreciate their commitment in making sure these bloggers are recognized and are able to network with other bloggers, as well as industry professionals at BlogBash.”

TownHall joins with other organizations such as the American Conservative Union, Heritage Foundation, Tea Party Patriots, Americans for Prosperity and Breitbart.com in supporting the Blog Bash celebration. Nominees for the 2013 Awards include Dana Loesch for Best Activism Post of 2012; the popular film, Hating Breitbart for Movie of the Year; and Steven Crowder for Best in Show: Video, over his recent brawl with union members in Michigan.

Bah, I’ll drink that squishy RINO lightweight under the table.

Ace says this is all about getting laid and cheating on your spouses.

Blake on February 28, 2013 at 2:26 PM

It would be great if people other than credentialed bloggers could go to this. Because this is largely useless information to us fans since none of us can actually go to it. I mean, I’m attending CPAC 2013. I’d love to go to this, but it doesn’t seem I can.

I could answer those questions, but first I’d have to kill you 🙂

Not a chance we’d get to see him in the flesh, huh?

Hmm, how does one get tickets – this might almost be worth the trip.

Midas on February 28, 2013 at 9:01 PM

But bloggers aren’t real journalists.

Step 1 – Be a blogger.
Step 2 – Be a halfway-decent blogger for a while.
Step 3 – Get a hold of Ali Ackbar after completing steps 1 and 2.
Step 4 – Enjoy.

Sunday morning talking heads

Jazz Shaw Jun 25, 2017 8:01 AM

Health care and tweeting and Russia, oh my!

Will they stay or will they go?

I can’t imagine what I was thinking when I said that

Rocking the boat majorly

Big government never contracts. It only grows more powerful

It’s only a “ban” until it becomes inconvenient

The decline and fall of Obamacare and the AHCA

This was all over before it began

Fixing crime in America is a complicated issue

Cops alone won’t solve it.

Victim’s father was President Maduro’s supervisor back when he was a bus driver.

Democrats forgot all about the “era of good feelings”

“Bernie and Jane Sanders have lawyered up.”

“the Judiciary Committee is examining the circumstances surrounding the removal of James Comey.”

Won’t be much left.

Your list of demands is a publicity stunt

“what happened that day was emblematic of a deeply troubling trend among progressives…”

“The jobs are still leaving. Nothing has stopped.”

Bad vendor. Bad! No cookie!

“The Corps is just starting to grapple with the issues the court has identified.”

“So you want me to sing my praises, is that what you’re saying?”

Why would we possibly want that?

“I mean he sold our country to The Russians.”

I could think of someone else you might want to ask about…

“You can ask a hundred people what hate speech is and you get a thousand different answers”
