CPAC 2003 FReeper photos ^ | 2/2/03 | abner

CPAC Photos!!!


Victim of Circumstance- "Where are all of the blimps? Someone needs to get some airships in here."


NautiNurse & Badray. Nautinurse-"McCauliffe was here?"
Badray-"No way, it had to be an impersonator."


Nautinurse, Nutmeg & Zelig checking out the FRN Booth.


Nick Danger & Interesting Times- IT is the new ambassador to the UN. At least according to Bob J & VOC on FRN radio... Nick is still deciding what his position will be.


Diotima & Registered. (I promised photos of Registered. His ear can be seen clearly to the right).


Freethehostages & ? & Doctor Raoul. If anyone knows who the middle FReeper is, please let me know.


Katherine Harris graciously signing books. There was a very, very long line to get her book signed.


Dinner at the Hamburger Hamlet- This pic is Ms.AntiFeminazi and on the right, Registered's shoulder.


VOC & Taxman making the CPAC hall- An airship zone.


Brent Bozell doing an interview for FRN Radio. The Shrew and Glaswegian did a fantastic job all weekend in interview after interview!


Angelwood, tgslTacoma, & Kristinn manning the DC Chapter Booth.

A shot of the DC Chapter booth and Kristinn. Great banner there guys!-)


Exit 148 & Diotima at the end of the conference. Whew!


Me, and Registered to my right.


Michelle Malkin & VOC- Michelle is a very gracious lady. Very nice in person, even with fans like VOC wanting their photos with her.


J.C. Watts signing books.

FReepers-

The above 5 photos- Badray, Dixie Sass, Diotima, Libertina & The Shrew.

CPAC this year was a great success for FReeperdom! We managed to get many great interviews for FRN Radio, and we got to meet loads of conservatives. A refreshing change from last year was that instead of people walking up and whispering in your ear, "Hey, I lurk. Don't tell anyone". This year, FReeRepublic.com was known by virtually everyone that stopped by the booth. People stopped whispering about their addiction, they were proud of knowing about, and being a participant in such a great forum.

It was a huge surprise to have Registered show up at an event. He is wonderful in person, and funny too!

The loss of the Columbia was a shock to everyone at CPAC. The hotel TVs were on all day with the coverage.

Great pictures! So far, Registered is an ear and a shoulder. If this keeps up, we'll get the entire picture of him someday!

Nice to meet you and other Freepers "in photo". Registered is not only the image guru, but also looks like he's the cropping guru, too.;-)

As usual, too many FReepers to remember them all! But, I'm sure if I saw you again, I would remember how pleasant it was. :-)

McCauliffe WAS there - and at the FreeRepublic Network booth too where someone took a photo. Whoever has this gem, please post it. McAwful was crashing our party (he was NOT wearing a CPAC admissions badge) and letting everyone know it by boldly (as in "being an ass") going around to EVERY booth in the display area and introducing himself shaking hands.

When he came by the DC Chapter booth, Angelwood asked him about his Global Crossing stock and we thanked him for doing such a good job for us last November. He wouldn't accept a "Member of Liberal LeftWing" membership card (signed by Hildabeast and Jane Fonda) or "Never trust a Democrat with National Security" button that were available at our table. If it weren't for the minions in his entourage, he'd have been wearing a "kick me" sign.

Abner: you asked who the Freeper in the middle is in that photo. That's my boyfriend, whom I'm trying to turn into a Freeper. P.S. That photo of me makes me look overweight! LOL -- I think you should check your camera, it could have a technical problem.

Great photos! Great meeting you!

Wonderful pics, Abner, as usual. Got any more?

I enjoyed meeting old FReeper FRiends and making new FReeper FRiends, which always happens at CPAC and every other FReeper event I go to! I am always impressed with the spirit, energy, enthusiasm and FRiendliness of the FReepers I meet at these events, and come away every year more and more convinced we can Take our Country Back!

We are winning this Culture War, and all we have to do is keep on keeping on!

Thanks to all FReepers who stopped by the National Retail Sales Tax Alliance booth to say hello and listen to my pitch for the NRST. If any of you are a member of the Club for Growth, be sure to thank Steve or David for letting us use their booth.

I enjoyed being with the many committed Conservatives and am delighted that the FRee Republic Network and the Washington DC Chapter booths were so popular, and that so many of our visitors knew of the FRee Republic.

I believe the consensus was that it was an outFReepingstanding event, and I hope those of you who missed it will plan to attend next year.

BTW, it was phun before the partying started, and it only got better from there!

MCM: (and all others who are wondering) It is possible (probably permitted -- I did not see anyone checking passes at any of the exhibit area doors) to wander through the the exhibit area without having a CPAC pass. A pass is needed, however, to hear speakers in the main auditorium and to attend special events.

So, all of you in the local Northern Virginia area should plan to attend at least one day next year! You will have a most memorable time. Second day (always a FRiday) is best, because at the end of the day, we have been known to party until after the bar closes and the cleaning crew arrives!

VoC, Abner, Doc -- I'm glad you were able to come down for CPAC and camp out at my FReeper crash pad Friday night. It was great, as usual, to see and FReep with you again. VoC -- thanks for the "blimp" time!

I'm sorry… I didn't make myself clear. What I meant was, it is nice to see Freeper faces to associate with Freeper names. Wish I could have been there in person, but the pics on this thread are the next best thing.

By the way, who is that tall, dishonest-looking guy between Diotima and Libertina in post 15?;-)

I was not forced to publicly humilitate McAwful -- he ignored my booth after I turned my back on him when he left the booth on my right. LOL!

He left that booth and went across the aisle to the DC Chapter booth, much to his sorrow, I should think, because he was forthwith brilliantly FReeped! Someone needs to post the details of the mega-FReep done to McAwful by the DC FReepers. It is a scream!

BTW, the scumbag has no shame! Smiling, laughing, big coterie of photographers, front men, security, etc. Wish I had had a cream pie when he pranced by my booth. I'd have first disrespected him by turning my back to him, picked up the pie and let him have it! Right in his smirking kisser!

Was McAwful the only (identified) Liberal/Socialist/Marxist Bastard to come through the exhibit area this year? In previous years, CPAC has been infiltrated and DU has posted some hysterical stuff written by these LSMB dingbats.

HA! That airship was forced to heel, but it was not a pretty show! Ultimately, old age and deception won out. In short, I cheated!

VoC wanted to leave the envelope (we took the gondola off) at the hotel, but somehow the plot to release it in the main lobby was foiled. We are plotting a different strategy for next year, which will succeed! LOL!

Actually, I think it's cool that he showed up and shook our hands. I don't think it should prevent us from asking the Global Crossing questions. But I don't think he did it to taunt. He probably did it just to shake hands with the enemy.

Carville extended his hand to me at the White House Media Correspondents dinner, and I shook it. LOL -- got it BIG trouble from Sauropod, who was all the scarier in his girl's clothing -- but I've got no problems shaking hands with the GOD-FORSAKEN BASTARD. Don't get why it bothers some.

LOL -- you're right, the thing to do is Freep him. Glad to hear our DC Chapter friends were right on it. Free Republic booth was good too!: that photo of him with Diotima is priceless, and they *nearly* got him to autograph a Register-doctored photo of him and Clinton dressed as pimps. Hee hee. Nearly. Now, that's good Freeping too.

Kudos all around. Let him come if he wants to. It's plain we all know how to Freep him.

LOL. OK, DID ANYONE ELSE WHO WAS ACTUALLY THERE VIEW THAT THING ACTUALLY HEELING? Don't lie to us Taxman! Why, late Saturday I saw one of your ships stuck up near the middle of the ceiling. I mean, unless someone else had an airship balloon too. ;)

It was a great fun. I'm sure you did your best with it. But that's why you were in the Navy, not the Air Force.

(I'm in big trouble here, aren't I?)
