CPAC: the "conservative" convention wrapped up today. Thank God! It turns out that this is a place wher a bunch of millionaires hang out and a few speakers show up and try and get noticed by outcrazying the speaker before them.
Here are some
highlights, I mean lowlights:
First off, lets start with the funny guy. Marco Rubio made an Obama joke about teleprompters, while using teleprompters. With a great joke like that to start the festivities, what is next?
More comedy of course. Ann Coulter, who is famous for something, then had the crowd rolling with zingers like this:
“He’d(President Obama) probably make a lovely next-door neighbor,” she added. “As long as you’re not Chinese. Then he’d be constantly borrowing stuff.”
Coulter served up a steady diet of racism, sexism, slander and ridiculousness, she just forgot to mix in some actual humor. There is always next year.
Then they brought in brilliant orator Andrew Breitbart, who was obviously unhinged and off his meds, mumbled something incoherently about wanting to watch videos of President Obama in college. Adding to his obsession with liberal men. Breitbart’s gilligan, James O” Keefe, was even less popular.
Then it gets even crazier….
Well with what the gentleman was saying about the Justice Department, I went to the briefing, the hate crimes summit, and I went there and it was all Muslim officials speaking and they had all these pictures of some mosque somewhere, and it was usually in the South I’m proud to say where a guy would drive a pickup truck right into the mosque.
Sometimes republican presidential candidate frontrunner Newt Gingrich, said unemployment benefits violate the Declaration of Independence.
NRA’s anti-intellectual Wayne LaPierre, told the audience a second term by President Obama will "finally destroy the second amendment".
O yeah, let’s not forget that they also featured a White Supremacist as a speaker.
Let’s sum things up here. This is THE republican convention of the year where all of the right wing celebrities show up, exchange ideas, socialize, etc… & this is their line-up? racism, hatred and bigotry? Ladies & Gentlemen, This is your republican party 2012!
You might want to rethink your votes in November!
PS: In case your wondering, Paul Ryan was there and proud to call these people friends.
Makes me think the only sane person this weekend, compared to this crazy convention is Nicki Minaj!!!
EDit Note: What happens when a bunch of racists, sexist party faithful and selfish billionaires get together to have a convention and Scott Walker shows up? Scott Walker gets a hero's welcome of course!
Gov. Scott Walker got a hero’s reception Friday night at a banquet for conservative activists from around the country, where he declared that his defeat in a recall election this summer would be a lasting blow against political risk-taking.
“Lord help us if we fail,” he said. “I’m not planning on it, but if we were to fail, I think this sets aside any courageous act in American politics for at least a decade if not a generation.”
