Inside the marvelous life of a first amendment celebrity.
By the time Shaun McCutcheon arrives at the main event, all the good seats are taken. Its day two of the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC)the annual pilgrimage that right-wing die-hards make to Washington each winterand 51,000 square feet of ballroom are bustling with would-be presidential candidates and conservative activists: old men in tricornered hats, soldiers in uniform, and women in big government sucks buttons. McCutcheon takes the only empty chair he can find, way in the back behind a college-age woman texting a picture of Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal.
While Jindal and, before him, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker hammer Democrats (on terrorism, on health care, on education), McCutcheon listens quietly. When Sarah Palin marches to the podium, however, he lets loose. Here we go! he says, rising to his feet, bursting into laughter and applause. Celebrity-style politics!
Its McCutcheons fifth or sixth Palin sighting, but theres something about her today that captivates him.
Are those Louboutin shoes? he asks me.
I havent the slightest idea.
Look at those shoesare those Louboutins? he repeats 20 minutes later as the speech wraps. Thatd be a good question, wouldnt it be? Theyre four-inch heels.(continued)

This guy’s weird fixation with Sarah Palin’s shoes is unnatural ....
Agree, but the article is actually doing a number on him and makes him something of a strange weirdo, a rich fanboy type.
Very interesting article. Seems like a great guy. Definitely a friend to the establishment outsiders. He also is getting used and abused for his money, based on this article, and he appears to be a sucker for celebrity. Between the Paris Hilton thing, Palin and willing to put money into Trump for ‘as long as it lasts’ because it’s going to be a good time is not the best use of his time.
The article also shines a little light into the issues with the ‘Tea Party’ PACs that seem to do more to enrich pockets than advance candidates. Definitely a real problem, as evidenced by the lack of any real presence by many in the pivotal 2012 election year.
