Conservative nuttiness

One Republican national figure has a 70+ approval rating, yet he wasn't invited to the nation's largest conservative gathering, the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was ignored at this year's conference apparently because he has deviated from the true faith on some issues.

I've attended CPAC a couple of times over recent years, and have seen the range of candidates, potential candidates, candidate wanna-bes, activists and hangers-on and I can personally attest that the views of those in attendance ranged over a wide area--from social conservatives to fiscal conservatives and libertarians.

Apparently, idiots now are running the conference.

They have jumped into the same circle of narrow-mindedness that dominates the political left. They would prefer 100 percent purity to what we have today--Barack Obama in the White House. CPAC needs to get off its high horse and re-enter the real world

  • To paraphrase the great heavyweight boxer Billy Conn, when he gave away the title to Joe Louis -What's the use of being Republican ( Irish) if you can't be thick (i.e. stupid)?"
