Opening Act: CPAC

The Conservative Political Action Conference will tractor-beam all movement politics into its orbit for the next three days. It's divided up in a reporter-friendly way, with former GOP presidential candidates speaking today, current candidates tomorrow, and a few stars (like somebody named "Sarah Palin" -- this name rings bells) saved for Saturday.
