The registration procedure at CPAC has been streamlined this year. Those of us who had preregistered were sent an email with a QR code. All I had to do was display that email on my iPhone to the camera on an iPad at the registration desk, my credentials were printed, and they were issued to me along with a swag bag with a few freebies.
So far I’ve run into Pete Ingemi (DaTechGuy), Jim Geraghty (NRO), Mickey White (@biasedgirl), Jeff Dunetz (Yid with Lid), and Grizzly Joe (@OccupyBawlStree). I’ll have more to report astroturfing the weekend goes on.
UPDATE—Before supper, I spent some time with a group of bloggers in the lobby bar of the convention center, including Kurt Schlichter, who received the good news that his client Ben Shaprio was awarded attorney’s fees in the Clock Boy defamation lawsuit today. Supper was over at the Public House where the RINOCON party was held.
