CPAC was a blast. Although I had a hard time getting there, it was worth it.

I was amazed at some of the people I was able to get close to and photograph just by walking around the event. Have a look below.

Here’s Ed Morrissey of Hot Air and Erick Erickson of Red State. They were part of a panel on GOP prospects for 2016.

Here are Katie Pavlich and Guy Benson of Townhall. Same panel as the one mentioned above.

This was a booth in the exhibit hall. I forget which organization it was, I just liked the sign.

Oh look, it’s Newt Gingrich!

Here’s another exhibit hall booth where you could be photographed standing with Rand.

This is a little blurry but yes, that’s Donald Trump.

Say, isn’t that Grover Norquist?

Here’s Stacy McCain, corrupting the minds of some students from the University of Maryland.

Friday night I went to an event sponsored by National Review where I ran into Jonah Goldberg and Charles C.W. Cooke.

I also met Jimmy Bise and Hot Air’s Jazz Shaw.

I’ve saved the best picture for last. By pure chance, I walked right into Scott Walker’s entourage and after asking his security detail very nicely, I took this photo.

I think it’s safe to say a good time was had by all.
