This year's Conservative Political Action Conference gets underway next week in Washington, and it's shaping up to be quite an event this time around.It's not like there aren't problems within the Democratic party, but at least we aren't in a major debate over whether gays are people or not.
CPAC is the Detroit Auto Show, no, even better, the Cannes Film Festival of movement conservatism. Has been for years. But this year the participation of the gay Republican group GOPProud is prompting a boycott from some key movement figures: the Heritage Foundation, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) are all taking a pass on the event (although only Heritage is fessin' up as to the real reason, after initially denying it).
No word on if this year's CPAC will have another installment of XXXX CPAC XXXXX:
I still can't get over that picture in the bottom right of James O'Keefe. It's unclear if he will attend this year's conference after getting a bit too XXXXPAC XXXXXTREME last year when he attempted to tap the phone lines of a US Senator and tried to lure female reporters onto his rape boat.
