CPAC is shaping up … Did you know that Conservatives are not part of the right left argument?
They are part of the American Patriot movement. Watch and see if you can tell who are the GOP progressives, the sellouts?
On the eve of the annual conservative bash known as CPAC, the titans of the movement are gathering Wednesday night to determine who the best lawmakers, journalists, activists and staffers are in the business.
Maybe the hardest choice for those attending the Weyrich Awards sponsored by Coalitions for America: who is the top Washington lawmaker, Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. Darrell Issa or Sen. Marco Rubio?
The annual event is adding something new this year. It has renamed the award for congressional staffer of the year for Michael Schwartz, the former chief of staff to Sen. Tom Coburn who succumbed to A.L.S. on February 2.
“Mike Schwartz was a dear and valued friend to the conservative movement and he worked tirelessly to further the conservative cause in every aspect of his life,” said Colin Hanna, President of Let Freedom Ring.
“Mike was an extraordinary servant and faithful leader,” added Coburn. “He showed everyone–by his life, his deeds and words–that things that are unseen are the things that matter.”
The award are represent a chance for bragging rights among three Washington Examiner columnists. Tim Carney, David Freddoso and Byron York are up for the “media person of the year.”
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz will be the keynote speaker at the dinner being held at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington, D.C.
The awards are named after the late Paul Weyrich, a conservative leader and commentator.
