From Bloggers' Row at CPAC

Well, not me actually, but ...

Fausta's got pictures from the convention.

Robert Stacy McCain's finally
back online after partying all night.

Andrea Shea King's got a photo, with Rick Moran at right.

Ed Morrissey's got
an interview with the beautiful Megan Ortagus of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy (and man I'm going to start planning for next year!). The Captain's also got an interview with Paul Jacob, a grassroots conservative, columnist at Townhall and founder of Citizens in Charge.

Jimmy at Sundries Shack
hung out with Newt Gingrich, who reportedly spoke about his "12 American Solutions for Jobs and Prosperity."

RightwingSparkle is there and she's having
a great time!

Pamela Geller's got it going with Jerome Corsi and Robert Spencer, "
tonight at 6 pm, The Blue Room at the OMNI!" (Video here.)

Tigerhawk offers some perspective on the event:

On the one hand, I can see how attending the Conservative Political Action Committee annual meeting would be a lot of fun. It is stressful being conservative in a college town in the northeast, and always relaxing to spend a little time with like minds. You can let your hair down. Or you could if it were long, which of course it would not be. But you see what I mean.

On the other hand, CPAC always seems to generate bad press for conservatives ...

Patterico's got more on that.

For a big-picture political analysis of all of this, see David Weigel, "Conservatives Confident Their Day Is Coming," via Mememorandum. See also, the Politico on Joe Wurzelbacher, "Plumber is King for a Day at CPAC."
