(From New York Times Opinion online)Rush Limbaugh headlined the last day of the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington on Saturday, delivering an eighty-minute stemwinder that was broadcast live by Fox News, C-SPAN and CNN and enthusiastically received by those in attendance.

In his Washington Times column today, Andrew Breitbart set the scene:

Hundreds of revelers packed the Regency Ballroom and hundreds more filled overflow rooms, hallways and stairways to watch on wide-screen TVs. It was a rare and much-anticipated public appearance of the man so powerful that President Obama singled him out for destruction in his administration’s first days.

Conservative pundits, party leaders and movement bigwigs took special care to position themselves close by so they could hang on every word of the only person who actually could accomplish what the three-day conference was all about — jump-starting the flagging conservative cause.

Breitbart also reported that "spokespeople for CPAC said it was the best-received speech in the conference’s 36 years. And that included Ronald Reagan."

At TownHall, Hugh Hewitt called it "a speech . . . that will be talked about for years and even decades."
