    Karl Rove sought to turn the tables Sunday on Sarah Palin, jabbing her for stepping down early as Alaska governor, a day after she blistered the GOP consultant in a speech at CPAC. Palin launched a broadside against the GOP establishment on Saturday at the gathering of conservatives, but directed her sharpest aim at Rove, reports Huffington Post. “If these experts who keep losing elections and keep getting rehired and getting millions — if they feel that strong about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck-up or stay in the truck,” Palin told CPAC Saturday, according...

    Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) knew he wouldn’t have trouble filling up a 20-minute speech, but he brought the transcript of his epic 13-hour filibuster along, just in case. In the prop-comedy battle between leading GOP presidential contenders, it’s a tough call between Paul’s filibuster book and Senator Marco Rubio’s water glasses. Paul definitely had better intro music, though. Paul’s speech used his filibuster as a launch pad to run smoothly from one big idea about liberty to another, where Rubio’s approach was more about machine-gunning those ideas as bright bursts of ideological energy, in between warm personal anecdotes. They really...

    Oxon Hill, Maryland (CNN) - Sarah Palin, igniting a crowd of conservatives, says it's time to stop "preaching to the choir" and instead evangelize a grass-roots, anti-Washington message to all Americans, even those who disagree with the right. "They're not our enemies. They're our sisters and our brothers. They're our neighbors, they're our friends. It's imperative to reach out and to share that conservative message of liberty and less government and lower taxes," the former Alaska governor said, urging growth of the movement. Saturday marked Palin's second time to address the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. With the gathering serving...

    Former congressman Allen West (R-Fla.), who lost his seat in November’s election but remains an icon in the conservative movement, said people like him scare liberals more than anything. “I’m speaking from experience when I tell you that there is nothing on this green earth that a liberal progressive fears more than a black American who wants a better life and a smaller government,” West said.

    Ask Siri: “What is CPAC 2013? There is an app in the iTunes store called CPAC 2013. You must know something about this event!” Siri is a smart woman. She responds: “CPAC 2013 is the largest annual gathering of conservative activists in the country and is celebrating its 40th anniversary in Washington, D.C., March 14-16, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. CPAC’s organizers expect to meet or exceed last year’s attendance record—meaning over 10,000 activists. This is a big feat considering that this is a year after an election where conservatives suffered some major losses. This indicates that...
  • CPAC Unwise to Snub Christie, Gays

    What can you do with a man like Chris Christie? The answer, according to many with the conservative movement: Throw him overboard. And while we're at it, let's toss the gays over the side too. The popular governor of New Jersey has certainly angered many conservatives, including this humble scribe. During the crucial final days of the presidential election, Christie didn't merely embrace President Obama, he all but endorsed him. Then, during the congressional fight over the disaster-relief bill for victims of superstorm Sandy -- a bill with more pork in it than a Jimmy Dean factory -- Christie denounced...
