The one and only Michelle Malkin stole the show at CPAC on Friday — going over her time limit and even blasting the conference itself for only designating one 20 minute panel to discussing immigration.

Malkin called out neocons, the establishment on both sides, and even the ghost of John McCain — earning her an enthusiastic standing ovation.
“I have been accused of being a ‘grifter’… but it’s the GOP sellouts, not just the radical open borders left, that is in bed with immigration saboteurs. Like the ones who hijacked the tea party movement to shill for amnesty. Those are the real grifters,” Malkin said. “Cashing in and practicing deceit at the expense of their base and the expense of our country.”
The courageous journalist took aim specifically at “retired Paul Ryan,” Mitch McConnell, and the Bush family, before adding “and yes I’m looking at you — the ghost of John McCain!”
The line caused many of the excited conference attendees to leap to their feet for an extended standing ovation.
