CPAC Day 3 – Gossip Sheet

CPAC 2005 Bloggers


Are Ann Coulter and Matt Drudge an item?


Appearing before a the Young Americans For Freedom, Ann Coulter responded to one randy students offer to buy her a drinks with, “I can’t I’ve got a date with Matt Drudge. Drudge was a surprise guest of Coulter’s during the question and answer session following her speech Saturday. The reports of other CPAC bloggers confirm that Drudge was in town with Coulter the entire weekend – they were spotted out and about together Friday.

When RedState blogger Adam Doverspike returned to his seat at Bloggers Corner he was surprised to see that The Wall Street Journal’s John Fund hijacked his laptop. He was even more shocked when he tried to reclaim his seat to using his own laptop, when Fund shooed him away, with, “I’ll only be a minute.” Twenty minutes later, with Fund still firmly in control of his laptop, Doverspike left to go get a drink. Kevin McCullough caught the incident on film.

Bloggers were puzzled as to how Wonkette could be covering CPAC Saturday when she wasn’t even in attendance. Ana Marie Cox did make an appearance Saturday afternoon – sans laptop – yet the Wonkette site continued to be updated. Wonkette is actually written by dozens of Indian call center geek who are looking to earn a little extra cash. Maybe the Libertarian Girl Guy’s plan to get a female face for is blog wasn’t such a bad idea after all..

Michelle Malkin is a trooper. Family in tow, Malkin honored her commitment to appear at a book signing and the Young Americans For Freedom reception even though she was suffering from a severe cold. Other CPAC speakers begged off due to illness, but not Michelle.
