Bachmann: Blogging is a “miracle”
"Are you having just too much fun?" Rep. Michele Bachmann gleefully asked a packed room of screaming fans at CPAC Friday morning. "That's the great thing about CPAC, it is the best party of the year!"
After a rough year featuring an aborted presidential run and a too-close-for-comfort congressional race, Bachmann's star may have dimmed on Capitol Hill, but not here, where there was standing room only in a space with seating for over 250. TheTeaParty.Net's Todd Cefaratti's introduction was so effusive that Bachmann joked, "I think that Todd has just nominated me for sainthood, right after the pope!"
But Bachmann was here for another reason than to soak up the praise: She had the honor of handing out the "Blogger of the Year" award, sponsored by a consortium of Tea Party groups and conservative media outlets. "Bloggers are where it's at!" she said.
"Through the miracle of bloggers, we're telling the story" of how conservative values are winning out over liberals, she declared.
