Back in the Saddle Again: News from the East Coast

by Little Miss Attila on February 11, 2012

Yes, I’m back at CPAC, thanks to all the beautiful people out there who answered my bleg in my hour of woe.

There’s too much happening to cover any of it adequately until I start my annual campout with the family of Friend David in Baltimore. And at that point I might borrow his camera cable, since I didn’t bring mine—and download all the pix I’ve taken. (Instead, I have the cable to an ancient iPod that I lost two years ago. I’m really not good at packing for these trips, even my seventh time. One of the other bloggers has suggested that every month I pack for a trip to the East Coast, and then wheel my suitcase around the block (to see if it’s too heavy) and go on home. Because heading out here once or twice a year is not making me any better at this.)

Anyway, here are the things you need to know about right now; oddly enough, with one exception they focus on movies you need to see.

• The Occupiers did show up here; I didn’t personally encounter them, since I was on the other side of the building. But Peter I Da TechGuy got some good video of them.

• The movie Runaway Slave, which premiered on January 13th in Los Angeles, screened here on Thursday evening to a standing-room-only, packed-to-the-gills audience. The formal D.C. premier of the film will be on the 22nd of this month, at the E Street Cinema. This movie is the coming-out party for free-market, values-oriented African-Americans.

{Cocktail or business attire, please}

=> 6:00 p.m., meet and greet

=> 7:00 sharp–premier of film

• The people at Citizens United have several exciting new films coming out, and the hottest one may be Occupy Unmasked, for which they brought in Lee Stranahan and Andrew Breitbart. This one is still finishing production, and should be done around summertime. We expect it to be fairly disturbing.

• Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer are working to wrap up their new film about fracking, for which they are offering production credits to contributors. Ann will be speaking today at CPAC at 2:30, by the way, about how, in energy terms, America is “starving at a banquet.” These are the two who brought us Not Evil, Just Wrong, and Mine Your Own Business. They know the cost of environmental extremism, and they are determined to see that everyone else knows.

Now sit up straight, and support your local documentary.
