If you’ve never been to CPAC this sums it up.
The event also has a blistering, hectic pace to it that can catch you by surprise if you’re not used to it. You miss meetings, lose track of people and by the third day, half the crowd is up a couple of hours later than it should be and most of the people who aren’t, look bleary eyed. This is the time when some people’s voices start to go and you start to hear talk about the “CPAC crud,” which is the name for the disease spread by the constant contact that goes on at CPAC.
I’ve never gotten the crud, thank goodness, but I did lose my voice and missed plenty of events. That’s just what happens. Believe it or not, I even missed some parties!
