CPAC: Day 1

18 02 2010

I was going to do a pre-CPAC post, but then I realized it was largely going to be an excuse for me to make a “CPACking” pun about how I was busy getting ready and decided I’d spare you that nasty surprise.

Anyway, the car ride was about 8.5 hours, and, barring a blizzard in the mountains (large rocky hills?) of Pennsylvania, wonderfully clear.  Not a lot of cars on the road, but thousands and thousands of trucks.  If anything speaks to the fundamental strength of the American economy, it’s that even during a massive economic downturn, we keep on truckin’.

Now I’m here in D.C., sitting in the plush, luxuriant lobby of the Omni Shoreham.  I’m waiting for everyone to get here so I can cross the street to the conference itself and get registered.

At some point in the next 12 hours, I need to find a digital camera cord so I can upload the pictures I’ve yet to start taking, but now, I’m off to get some food (or at least coffee), register, and save a seat for the Marco Rubio event at 10:00.

Hi Graham,
Glad you and your crew made it safe and sound. Hey, were you at the bowling alley with Mitt Romney and Scott Brown?

I personally really like the “CPACking” pun 🙂
