Rich Davis, one of the most pro-troops bloggers you will ever read from American Sheepdogs is the subject of our next CPAC Interview.

Q: How do we know DaScienceGuy really is into science?

Take a look at the money quote from this post about traveling

I have one word. VIDEO CONFERENCING! Has to be cheaper than this……But I guess there is something to being in the same room as some folks for a meeting.

By an odd coincidence in a later post he has this to say about former Vice President Al Gore:

Ok now to my main point of this rant. I heard on the news that Al Gore is getting an honorary degree from University of Tennessee…

Normally who cares, he is an alumni, a famous one and if it makes them feel better have fun with it.

I think the timing is interesting. Its in some kind of climate science (I don’t remember how they are phrasing it but you get the point). Given the current debate not only on the news but what I am sure is about to be in the open scientific literature given the news is this a good thing?

The posts seem unrelated but I think not.

One of the things that really get me about the Global Warming debate and the people that beat their breasts about it is how they manage to schedule conferences at the best hotels in the finest locations with the largest entourages with the best food and wines available all at public expense.

If these people actually believed that Global warming was an issue they could video conference for a fraction of the price, in fact the equipment once purchased would be permanently available (minus the cost of maintenance) for a double economy.

Why don’t you see this? As I’ve said before because it is a gravy train for NGO’s civil servants and the people who are buying into this nonsense. It’s all about the party and the dollars, it has nothing to do with the planet.

You want to give an honorary degree to someone, I nominate DaScienceGuy!

Townhall sent quite a few bloggers to CPAC and I interviewed several of them. Jillian Bandes was one of them:

Stacy McCain on the road again…perhaps

What the next best thing to having a Sicilian American Blogger with Fedora and cannoli covering your story for a Mere $1000 a week plus expenses? Having the Robert Stacy McCain road show visit your town:

if you’re one of the people who hit the tip jar to help fund my travels during 2009, thank you very, very much. I’m now actually considering a sort of “Victory Lap” road trip in a few weeks to celebrate the past year’s successes, meet up with some friends and do some campaign coverage. Our good friend Barbara Espinosa lives in Arizona (where a certain crazy cousin of mine thinks he’s too young for retirement), and I’m thinking I might stop in Kansas City to see my buddy Nathan Cossey en route.

This expedition could even go all the way to California, where JSF at Valley of the Shadow has been soliciting my interest lately. The itinerary is sketchy at this point, but once I pay back the rental-car company for that deer I hit in Tupper Lake while covering the Hoffman campaign . . .

Sounds like a worthy cause to me.
