You can Find Brian’s work at Big Government and at Conservative compendium:

You can find the rest of the field guide here.

Susanna Fleetwood has a great collection of photos from CPAC. Here is my collection of Fedoras from CPAC:

Warner Todd Huston and Victoria Jackson

Ok that hat isn’t mine but its better than any I own
(more…)

Ok Technically Andrew wasn’t a candidate for the Republican nomination in Maine when this was shot, but he is now:

Don’t discount da bloggers when it comes to running. Maine is a lot smaller than California and anything can happen between now and then.

Pam’s site has the most comprehensive coverage here and here and here and here but I took a few films myself:

City Counselor Daniel Halloran

Nelly Braginsky.

Sally Regenhard

I have some stills as well:

Ilario Pantano

Ilario Pantano didn’t speak long but her got a roaring reception

Eileen Walsh

Eileen Walsh lost a son

Nelly Braginskaya

I would have very much liked to have known Nelly Braginskaya before she lost her son, she struck me as a person who was full love life.

Sally Regenhard

Sally also lost a son.

It always seem to be the women who persists when other falter

Rosaleen at the podium

Rosaleen spoke first and I think her presentation was the strongest

Also speaking was Rosa Leonetti of Smart Girl Politics. I don’t have film or photos but she raised important points such as:
“The Ground Zero mosque is not a political football.”
“Two Imans were replaced but they persist and so will we”
She also noted that people of the left have no problem trying to trace tea party funding but they don’t try to find where the money for the ground zero mosque is coming from.

One of the things that really shocked me was the statement that city counselors apparently said they opposed the Mosque privately but couldn’t support the 9/11 families publicly. I asked about this during the Q & A:

This event was scheduled at the same time as a Ron Paul event directly across of it. I don’t think this was a coincidence. Pamela fearlessness in speaking openly about things that others would like to forget makes some uncomfortable (just as Reagan’s calling the soviets an evil empire annoyed many) as she reports Salon.com being salon painted things a tad differently. I think it is significant that Pam embedded Elliott’s film and linked to it yet Salon didn’t deem it worthwhile to link to the video of Pam’s event so readers could see for themselves.

For the life of me I can’t understand Mayor Bloomberg support for these guys. As a man as comfortable as he is I don’t see what there is to gain.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Pam Geller is a national treasure I was proud to have her on my show and I’d be happy to have her back again. Like many others who have sounded warnings in times of crisis we ignore her at her peril, Luke 4:24 could be written about her.
