CPAC Day 1
Day one of CPAC went very well. Towards the end I was able to meet Tony Blankley, and speak more to Congressman Hayworth. Old Virginia Senate candidate Oliver North was also there making a speech and selling books. While Congressman Tancredo got the crowd the most excited, the best speaker by far was Congressman Sam Johnson-a veteran who spoke about the war in Iraq. Two other VA bloggers were present: Stephen Braunlich, who called TC the "moderate" blog, and blogs on Save The GOP. and Spank the Donkey from Staunton. I also saw our RPV Chairwoman Kate Obenshain Griffin, who was signing calendars at the Claire Booth Luce Policy Institute Botth. Tomorrow is more packed than today with Senator Brownback, Ann Coulter, Senator Frist, Ken Mehlman and others. Come...buy a book from Steve Sisson, and meet Jim Parmelee...who I am told will be wearing something from LL Bean tomorrow.
