Every blogger at one time in their lives should visit the Krusier cabana.

It is very hard to manage the trade-off between gathering info and posting it. Doing it will make you a better blogger.

The greatest pleasure of Blogcon is to see people whose company I enjoy and get to know some of them better.

The scariest thing is to realize how many of them are young enough to be my children.

The most classic moment of Blogcon was watching Cynthia Yockey give her business card to an elderly conservative volunteer for Freedomworks saying : “Obama has created a lot of conservatives”

I ended up spending several hours with Cynthia on the 11th, what a pleasant person to spend time with.

And Nice Deb is the ultimate in truth in advertising

My trips to Washington have convinced me that we would have better government if the congress and the taxi drivers of the country switched places for a week.

Steven Crowder is a deep and quiet young man.

The official fedora count is -1 but I know where they are.

To anyone I’ve shot for short interviews they will all be on YouTube today but I won’t give “official” note of them until they are on the blog.

The worst part of Blogcon was not catching more people to say goodbye.

I interrupted his dinner at a Washington Restaurant two nights ago to interview him on camera about the tea party.

Unfortunately something must have happened with my card since I can’t find any trace of it on my media, (although the photo I took is there). That is totally my bad.

His site has video of his appearances in costume but the most important thing on his site is the parable of the closed steakhouse:

ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA A CHEF BUILT A FINE STEAKHOUSE. CUSTOMERS CAME FROM FAR AND NEAR FOR HIS SPECIAL NEW YORK STRIP WITH TWO SIDES FOR $12.95. ONE DAY A GOVERNMENT MAN CAME IN, FLASHED A BADGE, AND SAID, “THE NET COST OF THAT FOOD IN THAT PLATE IS ONLY $5.00 AND YOU CAN’T SELL IT FOR MORE THAN $6.25….

…the rest is on his site. His talk about ratios and expenses is business 101. Would that more people in the White House had his sense.

If there is one person that every one needs to listen to it’s Clara Csiong!

Her family fled two different communist regimes, she knows from socialism and communism lets see the media tell her that she’s wrong.

Val Prieto needs to meet this lady STAT!

Lisa Di Pasquale talks a little CPAC with me at Blogcon

It must be nice for her to be at a conference that someone else has to work about.
