Random CPAC Pix

Friday night:


Little Miss Attila, Obi’s Sister, Fausta, and I had dinner at an Italian restaurant…

that featured this dish on the menu:

Joy ordered and was disappointed by the size of the flaccid penne:

I won’t even tell you about the issues we had with the bill – but the tug of war for my credit card between Miss Attila and the waiter would have made a great action photo.

Back at the hotel lounge:


ND and Dale Peterson

We ran into Richard Miniter in the hotel lounge. Fascinating guy:

Day 3:

The bloggers lounge was always a busy and  bustling place, and security was tight. No one is quite sure why, but an uncredentialed Maureen Dowd tried to push her way into the room on day 2, but was blocked at the door. By all accounts, she was seriously displeased at being refused entry.

Some of us were wondering, “how does one get the nickname, “Fingers”, and decided not to delve too deeply…

ND and Fingers Malloy

Before his keynote speech, Congressman Allen West visited the Bloggers Lounge. He spoke briefly and posed for pictures. Tammy Bruce was clearly delighted to see him, giving him a warm embrace when he entered the room:

My own video of West’s keynote speech – I captured the last third:

For the entire thing, go here.

My dinner companions Saturday night:

John Hawkins, Susannah and Chris Fleetwood

Stephen Gutowski from Eyeblast, and John Sexton from Verum Serum

I finally made it to the Kruiser Cabana on Saturday night. This is after were booted out by security. (Yes, we all snuck back in):

RS McCain, Susannah Fleetwood, and John Howting

Some of the revelers were deep in the closet – literally.
