CPAC Blogging

Well, we’re here at the Omni Shoreham for CPAC 2007. If you’re at the conference, stop our booth (#101) or maybe you’ll find us on bloggers’ row. Right now I’m sitting between James Joyner of Outside the Beltay and our own Michelle.

I have to say, hanging out with Michelle at the nexus of all things conservative is a little like running with a rock star. We walk five feet, hear “Hey Michelle, I don’t want to bother you but I’m a big fan,” five more steps, “Hey Michelle,” repeat. Digital cameras come out, crowds gather, etc. It’s nice to see the boss appreciated. “Appreciated” being the understatement of the day.

CPAC is packed. I don’t know what the nose count is, but attendance has to be on a par with last year if not more. All the usual suspects are here, the presidential candidates are out in force with supporters, straw poll promotion, and even a walking stuffed dolphin. He’s not a Romney fan, in case you want to know.

Erick Stakelbeck and I interviewed CPACers on the exhibit floor, and hopefully we’ll have that on tap for Vent tomorrow.

By the way, I’ll be on Fox’s Red Eye tomorrow morning at 2 am. Set the VCRs to help their ratings, and then burn your tapes so you won’t have to sit through several minutes of me.

More later, or as Drudge would say, developing…

Update (AP): Lou Ferrigno’s a Republican? How many Mister Universes do we have?

Update (Ian): I got to CPAC about an hour ago and things are swinging.
