Weekend Forecast for Newport Beach: Very, Very, Very Conservative
Andrew Breitbart: From Fox News to Newport Beach
What would you do if you found out conservatives Andrew Breitbart, Jim Lacy, Tom Fuentes, Bruce Herschesohn, Sir Eldon Griffiths, Governor Tim Pawlenty, Meg Whitman, Chuck DeVore, Jeff Miller, Ralph Reed, Dana Rohrabacher, Ed Royce, Steve Poizner, Barry Goldwater, Jr., Gary Kreep, Don Wagner, John Ziegler, John Eastman, Michelle Steel, Matt/Jubal Cunningham and Jon Fleischman were going to be in the same Newport Beach location at the same time?
While you try to find your happy place after contemplating that image, I'll inform that those folks and more just like them will be huddled for the Western Conservative Political Action Conference Friday and Saturday at the Radisson Hotel.
FlashReport.org founder and publisher Jon Fleischman coos in an email, "On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Western Conservative Political Action Conference (WCPAC), I am pleased to announce that we have just confirmed that Andrew Breitbart of Breitbart.com, Breitbart.tv, and BigGovernment.com has confirmed that he will be giving opening comments on a star-studded political technology panel that I will be hosting this Saturday."
This is huge. Breitbart writes a weekly Washington Times column and his work has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, National Review Online and Weekly Standard Online.
Panelists include Cunningham of Red County, Ed Driscoll of Pajamas Media, Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit, Tim Phillips of Americans for Prosperity, Chris Carmouche of GrassTopsUSA and, Stephen Kruiser of RFCRadio.
If you run into Breitbart, the former Drudge Report staffer who once described himself as "Matt Drudge's bitch," at the Radisson, ask about the book his agent is shopping that apparently shows conservatives "a new way to fight back at the three big pillars of liberalism: academia, media and Hollywood."
Potential publishers are reportedly being told of the riches to be lapped up from the anti-Obama market. But Breitbart's last book, 2005's Hollywood, Interrupted: Insanity Chic In Babylon--The Case Against Celebrity, which he co-wrote with Mark Ebner, is currently ranked 571,709 on Amazon.
