CPAC Recap

I spent the weekend at CPAC (Conservative Political Action Committee) with my girlfriends Darcy Van Orden and Sarah Nitta. We had more fun. I can't even begin to describe the level of stress release it offered. Amazing.

Highlights in no particular order: Seeing an old friend, having our car towed, running into Rep. Allen West and having my picture taken, meeting Jason Mattera, Andrew Brietbart, Benjamin Smith (Brietbart Security), Getting nearly plowed over by Donald Trump's entourage, Dinner with Russ Walker and Max Pappas, Meeting with Sen. Lee, Seeing campaign friends in their new role and cool diggs at Senator Lee's office, Meeting with Sen. Hatch, ridiculous meeting with Matheson Staff, visiting historical sites with DJ Schanz, and Jerry Salcido, Reaganpalooza with Peter Schiff, meeting Gov. Gary Johnson and staff, meeting Dale Peterson, the over 50 contacts I walked away with...just amazing.

We had more fun and than I ever expected.

The talks were great. My favorite....hummmm... Senator Mike Lee, Ann Coulter, and I wish I had made it into the panel with Michele Bachman, Darcy's 2 minute activism panel group and I have to say Ron Paul's talk was full of excitement. Minus the two old grumpy Neo Con's trying to argue with the criminal defense attorney I was sitting with, bad call on their part.

The rest quite frankly I didn't get to hear and I am listening to them online! So if you didn't attend you can watch them here.

I was exhausted and couldn't take one more day of it, I would have ended up hospitalized! I highly recommend attending. Mark your calendars for next year.
