Con Con comes to town

Yes, it's that time of year again. The annual CPAC confab, or as I like to call it the Cirque du Crackpots, has come to DC. Or rather to some outpost in Maryland that is sort of in the greater DC area. Can't get that interested in it myself. Every year it gets a little less amusing, like an aging comedian who keeps repeating the same stale jokes.

The most interesting thing that's happened so far is the reception they gave Mittens. Politico boldly announced this morning, Mitt Romney gets B-list treatment at CPAC, claiming the crowd was indifferent to his arrival. He gave his speech this afternoon and the twitters proclaimed he got the best ovation of the show. Crowd loved him. I leave you to draw your own conclusions about what that says about the state of our insider media.

And the Beltway media's obsession with the event continues to astound. Here, via Chris Geidner is what the media pen looked like yesterday.

Assume a lot of them are crackpot bloggers but mixed in that crowd is every major media org inside the Beltway. You can't buy that kind of coverage for a lefty event. Yet the myth of the liberal media will never die.
