The mood was upbeat despite the darkness that has taken over DC and the country at large. The panelists and speakers were great today and I enjoyed a quick run through of the exhibit hall which I hope to have more time to peruse later (although I did manage to pick up every free non-food items that wasn't nailed down). Here are some quick pics I took in the exhibition hall:
Joe the Plumber was there! He has a book - yay capitalism! He exposed Obama's socialism, but the American people either didn't care or didn't believe it. Now we all suffer, sigh...
This guy was walking around to advertise the movie U.N. Me. I got to see the movie at a special screening at the CVC last week. It's shaping up to be a great piece. The Right's answer to Michael Moore's "documentaries." It also shows how unconscionably corrupt and deadly (literally) the U.N. has been. I spoke to the director and star who said the final version should be released over the summer.
A lot of activism going on at CPAC! Here, FreedomWorks has a big petition for attendees to sign saying, "NO MORE BAILOUTS!" Friday is the tea party protest.
I also got a pic with Rep. Michele Bachmann but it came out really blurry so I'm not posting it. She rocks!
Tomorrow I will try to take more fun pictures to give an idea of the look and feel of #CPAC09. Also, follow my twitter stream: @AlexaShrugged
