Live from YAF Conference!

I’m at the Young America’s Foundation National Conservative Student Conference, where Monica Crowley speaks tonight.

Will update with photos after dessert, but first I’ve got to tell you some weird news: No fewer than three students here have already told me they read the blog. One of them is Patrick Cassil, whose older sister is Alisa Cassil (a Facebook friend); another is actually Joseph Farah’s daughter, Alyssa; and the third is Eva Lorraine Molina, a Sarah Palin fan at Amherst College who’s actually been following the Hiroshima/Nagasaki thing that Dan and I have been doing this week.

Also, Eva is a fan of Ace of Spades HG — the next generation of Morons! Read my American Spectator article about the YAF Conference here.

Will update with photos and speech excerpts after I get my dessert and coffee.

UPDATE I: First two photos:

Monica Crowley and Jason Mattera.

Hannah Giles, Jason Mattera, Alyssa Farah. (Y’know, I think somebody’s trying to make somebody jealous.)

UPDATE II: Monica Crowley speaking about Obama: “This guy is even more dangerous than Bill Clinton ever was. . . . He is a radical through and through.”

Crowley on the town halls: “I love it that our Democratic elected representatives are afraid of us. . . . And they should be!”

Ah, some more photos of the attendees:

Alisa Cassil and her brother Patrick Cassil.

My tablemates and fellow Georgians, sisters Naomi and Lydia Brown.

Lydia Brown with Stephen Hodgson of the Young Briton’s Foundation.

Will update with more photos and quotes . . .

UPDATE III: More photos:

Brittany Bezick, Katelyn Alfano and Elizabeth Davidson.

Kelsey Budd, on the left, actually helped me with some of the IDs of earlier photos, and at right is Eva Lorraine Molina, the AOSHQ fan.

More photos to come . . .

UPDATE IV: In the Q&A, Naomi Brown asked a question and Crowley responded by saying she’d vote to elect Brown president. Also, Crowley called cap-and-trade “tantamount to the largest tax increase in the history of the world” and said the Waxman-Markey bill, if enacted would be “the death knell of the U.S. economy.”

A couple more photos:

Adam Destremps and Travis Korson.

Ruth Malhotra and YAF’s Patrick Coyle.

Well, they’re shutting down here. Be back tomorrow for Ann Coulter!
