Rise of the Second-Tier Bloggers, Rule 5 Edition!

When CPAC announced new attendance requirements excluding many smaller bloggers, the second-tier bloggers of the conservative internet rose up, forcing CPAC to implement new admissions restrictions...

NOW! LEAKED CPAC Videos! See for yourself! (A Frumley Brooks, Esq., Exclusive from TBL)

Exclusive to Three Beers Later
from Frumley Brooks,
Mainstream Conservative Pundit

Now, one would never reveal a source, so it would certainly be beyond all professional reason to admit who sent Three Beers Later these videos after they might hypothetically have been browbeaten out of posting them by Tabitha Hale. On the other hand, here they are, and someone somewhere owes this blog a favor for certain Rick Santorum videos....

You've probably heard the story by now, about how Eric Erickson of Redstate and Melissa Clouthier  posted some complaints about the scandalous clothing and indecorous conduct of certain attendees at CPAC, Stacy McCain noticed it and a huge kerfuffle, er, kerfuffled. The truth is, Stacy let everybody concerned off easy.  The facts are far, far worse than can be easily imagined by anyone with the slightest respect for the dignity and maturity of the conservative movement in America, as I'm afraid, these clips will attest, literally from the opening day and the arrival of the first dogmatic degenerates in the lobby:

Disgusting Public Exhibitionism at CPAC by richardmcenroe

The situation got badly out of hand, so utterly libertine and shameless, it even began to infect the formerly-professional hotel staff, as revealed in this security camera footage from Spanish-language news programming...


CPAC ruins Hotel Staff by richardmcenroe

But shameful and humiliating as it was, and what had taken place so far was reason enough and more for any good conservative to hang their head in shame, it was as nothing next to the actual scheduled event, the highlight of CPAC, which took place behind closed doors Saturday night...


Behind the Locked Doors of CPAC by richardmcenroe

Our institutional embarrassment was compounded by the presence of so many of our distinguished candidates for higher office at the conference.  One could only hope they were not exposed to the worst of these excesses; one can only pray that they would not let this scurrilous conduct warp their opinion of...

Excuse me?  Speaker Gingrich did what? With whom? Whom? And Whom? Oh, Dear God...

Wooden Ships and Wobbly Men!


Navy's first tanker shown underway for commemorative event

The U. S. S. Constitution (Old Ironsides), as a combat vessel, carried 48,600 gallons of fresh water for her crew of 475 officers and men. This was sufficient to last six months of sustained operations at sea. She carried no evaporators (i.e. fresh water distillers).

However, let it be noted that according to her ship's log, "On July 27, 1798, the U.S.S. Constitution sailed from Boston with a full complement of 475 officers and men, 48,600 gallons of fresh water, 7,400 cannon shot, 11,600 pounds of black powder and 79,400 gallons of rum."

Her mission: "To destroy and harass English shipping."

Making Jamaica on 6 October, she took on 826 pounds of flour and 68,300 gallons of rum.
Then she headed for the Azores , arriving there 12 November. She provisioned with 550 pounds of beef and 64,300 gallons of Portuguese wine.

On 18 November, she set sail for England . In the ensuing days she defeated five British men-of-war and captured and scuttled 12 English merchant ships, salvaging only the rum aboard each.

By 26 January, her powder and shot were exhausted. Nevertheless, although unarmed she made a night raid up the Firth of Clyde in Scotland . Her landing party captured a whisky distillery and transferred 40,000 gallons of single malt Scotch aboard by dawn. Then she headed home.

The U. S. S. Constitution arrived in Boston on 20 February 1799, with no cannon shot, no food, no powder, no rum, no wine, no whisky, and 38,600 gallons of water.
