CPAC conference churning and so is my stomach
Right now as I speak, The Conservative Political Action Conference is underway.
This conference is where conservatives get together, plan, and generally complain about those "Godless liberals."
The following is basically the conference:
Blah blah blah, Jesus was a conservative, blah, blah, blah, liberals like to squeeze the Charmin and snatch tags off of matresses, blah, blah, blah, a gay man felt my ass while I was coming here.
Okay maybe I'm exaggerating a bit:
CPAC is expected to draw nearly 9,000 activists and college students from across the country, up from the record 7,000 who attended last year, when the main attractions were personal appearances by President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and the four remaining Republican presidential nomination hopefuls - former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.
To get a good view of what these folks are going to talk about, I will present links from People for The American Way's Religious Right Watch.
Religious Right Watch deserves much kudos for having the high tolerance level to stand the nonsense going on at the CPAC conference (even though it has yet to add my blog to its list of links - hint, hint, hint).
Proceed at your own risk with barf bag in hand:
CPAC: Marriage Equality Will Create a Generation of Violent Criminals
CPAC: Obama's a Communist and a Foreigner, Bush was a "Pseduo-Socialist President"
CPAC: Carlson Attempts to Defend the New York Times, Gets Booed
CPAC: Bay Buchanan Calls DC Conservatives a Bunch of Sell-Outs
And from John Aravosis at Americablog:

Ah yes. Nothing like a good traditional family values gathering - that is if your family is the Sawney Beane clan or the Bloody Benders.
