You may have noticed that your blogger has taken the summer off. That's right. After an early season visit to Chattanooga for her cousin's wedding, which conflicted with the NC GOP convention, she has been living at the beach all summer. Emerald Isle is her second home and the politics in Carteret County are fun. It's probably the "reddest" county in North Carolina.
Next weekend, however, she will return to blogging at the RightOnline Convention in Las Vegas!
RightOnline is the right's answer to the left's NetRoot's Convention. Put together by the Americans for Prosperity, the RightOnline conference follows NetRoots around the nation each year, to stop the spread of their liberal message. Americans have had enough of it and want to hear something fresh. In short, they want to hear the good news, rather that that "hopey changey stuff", of the left that Sarah Palin so aptly described.
While the left will have depressing speakers such as union leaders (ugh), Harry Reid, and Joan McCarter of the Daily Kos, RightOnline features such inspiring speakers as:
Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News
Congressman Mike Pence
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
Herman Cain, Nationally Syndicated Radio Host
Erick Erickson, RedState.com
Stephen Moore, Wall Street Journal
John Fund, Wall Street Journal
Ed Morrissey, HotAir.com
Guy Benson, Radio Host
Stephen Kruiser, Fox News Contributor
Phil Kerpen, AFP Foundation
Just reading this list is enough to make a right-wing mother-to-be go into labor!
(Note: Your blogger is not in that delicate condition, but the list does excite her!)
Hope to see lots of North Carolineans there, but if you can't make it, KCC will cover it for you. With this long list of speakers, it won't be easy to keep up with and your blogger prays that they stream it on UStream. If so, she'll run it on KCC. It's not too late to make your reservations, and we hope to see you there.
Additionally, this will be our next-to-last post here on Typepad. It's been a good platform for these long years, but Katy's Conservative Corner has long needed a change and WordPress will provide more features and flexibility and benefits. We may get started with a barebones look, but it will develop in time.
Our next post will be the final one, letting readers know that KatysConservativeCorner.com has moved, forever and ever.
Finally, our email address has changed. It is no longer [email protected] Everyone and their brother added us to their list, whether we wanted it or not. So, when a keylogger struck your blogger's laptop, we shut down the account.
God bless you all, and see you soon, over on WordPress.
