CPAC LIVE! | RikaStrom, the Shrew, LurkernoMore, Exit148, IronJack, FREEPERS

Posted on 02/01/2002 6:52:32 AM PST by RikaStrom

Hello Everyone. We are live from CPAC. The Shrew and Iron Jack are doing an interview right now, so I have the honor of starting the thread.

We've got a full day today with interviews. they are going to interview Art Linkletter and several execellent conservative activists. I will list everyone as soon as I get all the names.

Today we still have Abner and her husband's helium balloon. It is terrific. I want a ride in it! :-)

LurkerNoMore is taking pictures of the days events and Exit 148 and Angelwood are manning the Free Republc Network booth and we are introducing new people to FR as fast as we are able.

I just heard from Iron Jack that we are also interviewing Grover Norquist and Matt Robinson, so post your questions for them here.

Make sure to tune into FR Radio to here the news.

We'll post the excitment as it happens!

I'll make sure that the FReepers that are here post their accounts. So far this morning I've seen Interesting Times, Ms. Antifemanazi, Exit 148, Angelwood, Iron Jack, The Shrew, One_Particular_Harbour, Sourpod, ReaganGirl, Dubyaismypresident. They'll all check in later I'm sure.

RikaStrom signing off for the moment

We need a picture of xsmommy riding that remote control balloon.

See, Hobbes1 and Argh don't think she'll be okay manipulating that battery-powered electronics rubber toy all by herself .....

But I think she'll do just fine. Good manual dexterity and all that from debriefing and handling lawyers and engineers all this time, ya know.

Well, heck, I'm second. I kind of come in that way.

It sounds so wonderful, Miss Rika. Isn't Miss Antifeminazzi a great lady? She's absolutely gorgeous, too.

Heck, I have her named spelled incorrectly and can't ping her to this. Dang.

Miss Rika, we need you back here soon. You have fun now, but some discipline is going to have to be dished out when you get back. This is an unruly crowd since you've been gone.

The room was packed. During Dr. Rice's speech, I was towards the back of the hall. And all the tables were backed, I would say there were 1000 to 1300 people in the room, and more were outside.

During Racico's speech it was the same amount of people.

Frank Graffney was just interviewed by The Shrew.

ok ok tell me when Ann Coulter is interviewed? LOL

and make sure she sees this thread

Ann Coulter, another weekly columnist for WND, doesn't appear bothered by the rightwingcrazies.com label. "I'm delighted Democrats are reading my column!" she said. "I just hope their lips don't get tired." But not everyone is thrilled about the relabeled hyperlinks. WorldNetDaily's Editor and CEO Joseph Farah feels it's a clear violation of Internet etiquette and thinks it will make many people angry.

Hey you rotten little nark, include me out, I've barely arrived in class and haven't committed one act of mayhem yet! :^)

Hey, Regular Teach, I think Miss Slip needs some chastisement, for ratting me out for stuff for which I wasn't even there and then for giving me 2 F-quads, probably the only mark she can spell! Because she's had so many of them!! :^)

Hi Slip18. LBGA finally let me post. lol. She is doing a GREAT job getting good pics for us.

Okay, victim of circumstance (Mr. abner) is mocking me. Some guy came by here yesterday and liked the FR booth. He had his picture taken at our booth and told me he would be back today. He came back today and I asked him about something he had shown interest in and he said he would be back in a few and handed me something to hang onto until he returns (trust factor here - lol). He said he was late for an interview he had promised to do. I never got his name and now Mr. abner is razzing me because he said the guy must be somebody if someone wants to interview him. lololol. I guess I'm in true form today. lol. LBGA just found out that the guy does consulting for the White House. ROFL.

Well, now I'm a bit rattled. I'll try to remember what I was going to post before.

LBGA just got a pic of the guy. She'll post it later today.

FRLurker, it was so great to meet you.

Rockinfreepapotumus/RFP (butcher the name) stopped by with one of his friends from West Virginia, Jay Wolfe. Jay Wolfe is running against Jay Rockefeller in W. VA. I also met GOPCapitalist earlier too. I just met Pyro7480 - very nice.

Gotta run - the White House consultant guy is headed this way. lol. Maybe he'll have a card.

Hi from CPAC! It's the last day. This has been a great weekend. I want to take a minute to thank those who have worked their poor dawgs off at the booth.

LBGA and RikaStrom have done an outstanding job collecting great photos and keeping the thread bumped and watching the booth. I have enjoyed your company thoroughly!

pjb819 thank you so much for covering for me and the others so we could grab some food and take care of other business. Just having you here was a huge help.

Angelwood came with all her beautiful buttons. Angelwood is appropriately named - she is a true angel and her generosity can't be matched.

Dixie Sass impresses everyone with her southern charm and educates the masses with each word. :)

Exit148 is the calm in the storm. Thank you Exit148 for being so faithful and helpful. I can't wait until our paths cross again. :)

Glaswegian is a real sweetheart. I cannot tell you what a great guy he is. Glaswegian, you must post the story you told me about the impact 911 had on you. Your story will touch others universally I'm sure. I don't care what you say, I'm not a liberal! (not even as a token - ahem) lol.

Thank you to everyone here who helped out at the booth. Free Republic is represented well by each of you.

Ms. AntiFeminazi
