Ed Morrissey / Captain's Quarters:
Coulter Said What?  (Bumped)  —  Ann Coulter is speaking at the moment, and drawing a huge crowd — with longer lines than those for the Rudy Giuliani.  She's definitely one of the stars here at CPAC, and I listened to the audio stream for a bit while she opened her speech.
Bryan / Hot Air:
Thanks, Ann; Update: Audio added; Update: Video added  —  Ann Coulter is speaking at CPAC as I write.  As is typical, she gave a brief speech full of her usual witticisms, including a few brilliant attacks on Al Gore's green hypocrisy.  All was good.  Untill the last few seconds, when she launched into a joke about John Edwards.

Romney and Giuliani Make Pitch to Conservatives  —  Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and Rudolph W. Giuliani of New York are both Republican presidential candidates who have been voted into office by largely Democratic electorates.  They both have a history of taking liberal positions on social issues.
Matt Browner Hamlin / The Huffington Post:
CPAC: Romney Wants Extremist Love  —  I've been highly critical of Romney's campaign for the last four months.  I find it tremendously hard to believe that a candidate who was fundraising and voting for Democrats fifteen years ago and arguing that he was to the left of Ted Kennedy would ever …
