Seeing Something You’re Not Used To?

We’re expanding a bit here at Metroblogging DC, and you’re going to see something you’re not used to here: some national politics. It’s inescapable in DC, and that makes our effort to squelch it an attempt to ignore the elephant in the room. We were invited to send bloggers to this year’s CPAC convention and we’re sending two: Wayan Vota and me. You’ll see dispatches from this event throughout the next three days. Don’t accuse us of being Republican Shills or a bunch of Neocons, though, the choice of conference is an accident of fate and little more. We hope to cover more large events in the coming months, if you’re interested in contributing a media pass our way, we’d be glad to come write. The dispatches here will be less political coverage, more of what happens when several thousands conservatives descend upon the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Northwest.

    And there’s already a pool on how fast I’ll be tossed from the show. Folks are doubling down that I’ll not even make it past security in my Rainbow Rebel.

    Wayan you are so NOT going to get kicked out. There are a bunch of people you’ll like here. Heck, the ACLU is even an exhibitor!
