Prose-Peddling Pols Swarm CPAC

The annual Conservative Political Action Conference is once again upon us, bringing together hundreds if not thousands of right-wing activists determined to crack the code to winning back over the government.

A number of prominent House and Senate Republicans are scheduled to rally the faithful during the weekend long strategy session.

Some are even bringing along some product to push.

In addition to the donation-driven receptions and private meet-and-greets sprinkled about National Harbor, several past, present and would-be politicos are expected to hunker down for book signings of their personal texts.

The nightstand stocking opportunities include:
