CPAC's conference was fittingly introduced today by a man named Mr. Frazee.
Is anyone listening? What can we learn, if anything, about young republicans, the tea party group and their enthusiasm about wanting to "take our country back"? Liz Cheney spoke (12:30) Oh noes. Followed by Dick Cheney. Then Erick Erickson (redstate.com) who was not all that well received.
The vile Dick Armey speaking now (C-Span):
You, Mr. President, are an idealogue. Shallow, self-indulgent. You have no ability you only have talent. (etc.)
You want cap-and-trade to get control of the oil distribution.
It's about control.
for the government to be in control and re-distribute income. They are willing to (sabotage the economy to do so.)

CPAC: Take a "Whack" at Pelosi, Reid by mcjoan, 'CPAC: Take a "Whack" at Pelosi, Reid,' Feb 17, 2010, 01:57PM EST
Joshua Mandel, a young OH Rep from Cleveland who says he knocked on 19,000 doors to get elected at a young age in a district next to Dennis Kucinich's with, he says, two to one Democratic constituents.
He says, "Stand on principle" and don't "blindly follow" your leaders. Don't be "outworked."
Before him Stephen Baldwin and some guy he has a radio program with were on. Nothing too outrageous there.
Jason Mattera, Young Americans for Freedom spokesperson.
Upcoming book: Obama's Zombies: How the liberal machine brainwashed my generation, March 30th.
"We speak in complete sentences and we don't smoke cocaine.
Which is one thing that separates us from Barack Obama."
Obama has given us the opportunity to capture the youth vote since the unemployment among youth is 20%.
The line from Mattera, a Malkin stoodge, that gets the most applause.
"Hey Jackass, get your government off my freedom."
Can we defeat the Obama zombies? He answers, in a sickening mock-black church-y sing-song voice: "Can we do it? Yes we can." Warm applause.
Followed by loud rock music.
OMG, had to add this. Said by Dana Loesch, radio talk show host:
What I love about conservatives is that we're so polite.
But you can throw manners out the window when we are trying to save Liberty.
We have an Acorn problem in St. Louis.
We have a lot of purple shirts in St. Louis.
We have lots of bars that are infested by liberals. Go there and talk about how you love the Constitution and RR.
Yes, Dana, that is so polite.
ps: I wanted to transcribe some of Cheney's remarks but find I do not have the stomach for it. It seems I've reached my personal tipping point. The bile indicator is reading 'OVERLOAD.'
UPDATE IV: DICK CHENEY, or it appears, god himself. Mr. Charm.
(And I thought) almost nothing would make me run for office. But I'm not gonna do it.
Erick Erickson up now at 1 pm.
pps: I am leaving now. Sorry, can't stand this stuff anymore. Will not do it again. Carry on at your own risk.
