They skipped 2010, but came back ON the Board this year. (link to their Booth in 2009 is here>> and even more here>>
There was this wonderful display:
But, there were also “The Paulites”, helping to influence the anti-Israel sentiments. This bearded fellow had a Ron Paul button and made it clear he was not a fan of Israel
AND the Go Proud contingent (see video of them being BOOED from 2010 here>>)
But they were back and they too now sit on the Board and with the Muslims…
Interestingly, I came upon this cartoon…
and this booth on another aisle
There was a Sarah Palin look alike (my bet is a few of those kids thought it was Sarah)
and Jimmy (the rent is too damn high)McMillan was there….with a SHOE in gloved hand…definitely enjoying all of the attention.
Attended a session on Important of Faith and Religious Liberty (headed up my Suhail Khan…of all people). It was a TEDIOUS event. Marshall Breger lead off and he was BORING. Followed by Jennifer Bryson.
None of them really speaking to the topic…skating around it with false narratives about Catholics and Christians and all the usual straw dogs,if they ever got to Islam, the crowd had to be asleep. I left for the World Premiere of “The Ground Zero Mosque: The Second Wave of the 9/11 Attacks”
CPAC 2011, other than the fabulous World Premiere of The Ground Zero Mosque Film (by Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer) wasn’t as interesting as it had been in previous years. This year’s Premiere and the 9/11 panel was riveting. Go Here for Day One and Day Two .>>.
Otherwise, didn’t see much to write home about…except…the Exhibit Hall. I always enjoy the booths. Video that follows has much more….
and slide show of a few more pictures
