Palin, Trump Get Longer Speaking Slots at CPAC
The National Review ^ | March 11, 2013 | Katrina Trinko

Posted on 03/11/2013 2:13:31 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Time to address conservatives from across the country at CPAC is a prime commodity, especially for politicians eyeing a 2016 run — and it’s not being distributed equally.

According to an internal draft of the minute-by-minute schedule at CPAC, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal, and Scott Walker are each slated to give 13-minute remarks on the main stage. Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan, however, get eleven minutes to deliver their comments. Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum is scheduled for a mere seven minutes.

The biggest winners in the time lottery are Sarah Palin (16 minutes) and Donald Trump (14 minutes). Palin and Trump are expected to be crowd-pleasers at CPAC: News of their respective appearances caused ticket sales to spike, according to a source.

However, these differences aren’t large, and, of course, speakers may well go over or under their allotted time. Nor is the speech on the main stage the only chance politicians necessarily have with attendees...

It’ll be sort of “boy/girl/boy/girl” from what I can see. Do you know how many people there are here who whine about Tub-O-Lard not getting invited?

Why is a celebrity who surrounds himself with human cartoon characters being given the right to speak at CPAC? This is the kind of decision that makes conservatives the target of well deserved mockery. We ridicule the Dems for the likes of Fluke and Sharpton but Trump is a celebrity whore and to give him a podium at the most important conservative gathering of the year is just plain stupid.

I don’t see a criticism of Governor Palin in his post.

I don’t run CPAC. I have no idea. From his donations he’s either a Democrat or a Lindsay/Rockefeller Republican.

I am well aware of humblegunner’s sincerity.

I did not mean to be critical. Just poking fun is all.

Don’t get your pantie’s in a wad. Its only a minute or two. I am more interested in what they have to say— Heck, I wouldn’t mind if Glen Beck was speaking for 40 minutes. I do like/admire Trump and I wish Sarah would comeback and serve in Congress. The GOP needs to change—and needs to change today. Listen well to what these worthies have to say. The old ways will not work in Obama’s America.

Ditto. He also forced barry to produce a 2nd fraudulent “birth certificate”.

Did that do any harm to the “one”?......not yet.

I’ll also add that Rick has only 7 minutes to speak and nobody will care. Palin is not too busy being a mother “raising all of those kids”, Rick, so you better watch out.
