Welcome new visitors, and thanks to Michelle and John for the links. You can find more coverage of the conference, with photos and scintillating commentary at the following links:
Part 2 (old man Lowry)
Part 3 (audio of Steyn's already-legendary speech introducing Mitt Romney)
Part 4 (mostly babbling, also the link to Romney's speech)
Part 5 (some nice photos, mostly forgettable commentary)
Part 6 (some really decent photos, though irrelevant)
Part 7 (with video of Jonah Goldberg, Mark Steyn and Rob Long) - not to be missed.
Part 8 (audio of the women's panel discussion and John Bolton)
The fine folks at National Review are hosting this amazing get together in DC this weekend and I am lucky enough to have the chance to tag along. Unfortunately, whoever is in charge of the programming is a few steps out of touch with reality because the early morning sessions feature some of the best content (Newt Gingrich tomorrow and the immigration debate Sunday).
This means I have to go to bed REALLY early, like before 4:00 am, which means no time for editorial comment tonight. So here are some pictures.
First person I met was on the elevator, trying to find the floor for the conference. Turns out it was none other than Pamela of the great blog Atlas Shrugs.
I did not get the chance to ask whether she fully understands the iconic power of that Superman outift, for boys who grew up in the 1960s.
Remember, I do this so you don't have to.
The reception featured one John Bolton, about whom some asked "are there any exploratory committees in the works, sir?"
The evening session was a femme-fest. Consequently, I don't feel guilty sticking with visual reporting.
Left to right: Kate O'Beirne, Mona Charon, Kathleen Lopez (K-Lo of NRO), Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham.
Laura Ingraham lit up the place, in my opinion. No surprise there, as she is the talker-by-trade; but she is awfully good at it. On the question of what is wrong with the Republican Party, the woman sparkled. Transcriptions should be available here next week.
And now some random shots:
Mona Charon and Kathleen Lopez
Here are the audio recordings of the panel discussion and John Bolton.
