The Campaign Spot

Election-driven news and views . . . by Jim Geraghty.

Coming Soon to a Convention Center Near You . . .


CPAC 2012 gets its own theatrical-style trailer. Among the Republican presidential candidates who appear in it: Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, in that order. CPAC begins on February 9; it’s quite possible that one or more of those candidates will no longer be in the race at that point.

(The montage also includes a pair of Floridians, Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Allen West, as well as Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, etc..)

It also features two quotes from William F. Buckley, along with Reagan, Friedman, Kirk, and Chambers.
