The World According to CPAC

At this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) gathering, we learned five things the Liberal Media will never tell us.  Did you know:

The Catholic Church has been infiltrated by — infested with — Marxists, homosexuals and New Age devil worshipers.  This dire warning was brought to us by Cliff Kincaid, founder of America’s Survival.  Just one chilling example:  Catholic bishops “made a deal with the devil to get Obamacare passed.”

Gay marriage is even more hazardous to America than you ever suspected.  The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Prosperity warned CPAC attendees of the “10 Reasons Why Homosexual ‘Marriage’ is Harmful and Must be Opposed.”  Just ten???  Now hold on — the Ruth Institute has a brochure stating the “77 Non-Religious Reasons to Support Man/Woman Marriage.”

Thanks to the American Jobs Alliance, we now know that the United Nations is planning to impose Sharia Law on America, and “a quarter of the entire U.S. land area will fall under UN court jurisdiction.”

ProEnglish — gee, I wonder what their mission could be — is warning us that Puerto Rico’s statehood referendum was rigged.  It’s part of a diabolical plot to dilute English — the cornerstone of American culture — with that swarthy Hispanic language.

And finally:  George Soros controls EVERYTHING!!!  Oh come on, we already knew that.

Bill Maher talked about the fact that such a tiny number of rightwing wackjobs can wield such a disproportional amount of power over the Republican Party and the national dialogue.  He called it “shit-kicker inflation, which is the problem of all things conservative being portrayed as way bigger than they really are.”

For example — Bill Donahoe’s Catholic League.  “It’s just one guy with a fax machine.”

Same with One Million Moms.  I don’t know how many “moms” this group has, but they have fewer than 3,000 followers on Twitter.

The linked article describes CPAC as “where the looniest and most far-flung reaches of the far right are given a microphone and a chance to court the next generation of Republicans.”

Or as Bill Maher put it:  “They’re just so loud, they haven’t noticed America has moved on without them.”

CPAC. The name sounds more like a marine shipping company...and their message is kind of fishy and a little rotten.

I hope Netroots here in San Jose, gets half the coverage this whackaloon thing has gotten. So many idiots in the same place at the same time, I am surprised the world wasn't sucked into a black hole.

“a quarter of the entire U.S. land area will fall under UN court jurisdiction.” What the hell? What's wrong with the other three-quarters? Why not go for the whole "enchillada"...whoops and OMG...I've been sucked in by that swarthy, smarmy Hispanola conspiracy. Hijos de putas!

I can't believe George Soros continues to let the GOP control the House.

More unwed mothers living in poverty,more people on food stamps,more African American males not graduating High School?

The best that can be said for the CPAC convention is that it keeps some of the country's nutcases off the streets for a few days.

I wonder what they are cutting their foot here. Even though the far right are generally intolerant Protestants - they always needed the Catholic Conservatives to back them up in issues like Gay Marriage and Abortion.

Showing their true colors I guess

Sorry but I'm kind of finished watching the clown circus known as the republican party. They will continue to eat their own until there's nothing left. Spending $10 million to put lipstick on this pig isn't going to cut it either. That's their next plan to win back the minority vote. Sorry guys manure in a pretty bag is still manure.

Jerry: You're right, that name does sound like a shipping firm. Too bad it hasn't sunk.

Jess: LOL. With that many idiots in the same room, there is indeed the danger of some sort of scary cosmic reaction -- whatever you'd call the opposite of the harmonic convergence.

jadedj: Uh oh, you've been corrupted. Quick: tune your TV to Fox News and your radio to Rush Limbaugh, simultaneously. The two antidotes together might be able to save you.

Jim: I can't believe it either. And all these Republican governors and legislatures. George needs to fix this ASAP. What's he waiting for?

SW: And that's a valuable service CPAC is performing. God only knows how many flies' wings didn't get pulled off during CPAC, when hundreds of rightwing cretins actually had something to do.

Erik: Some things are even more important than winning elections. For rightwing True Believers, it's Intolerance Uber Alles.

Randal: But if they're too old and doddering, they might call Him by the wrong name.

Demeur: $10 million worth of lipstick is nowhere near enough. It'll take at least $50 million. Money is no object.

CPAC = Conservative People Are Certifiable.

They would need to be spending even more than $50M, I think. And I think what the Democrats ought to be doing is finding out which areas the GOP intends to target, spend just as much money, and GET THERE FIRST, and the standard line ought to be something like:

"There are some people who are going to come around here soon, to talk to you about the next election... and they will try to convince you to vote in favor of repressive economic policies that are not in your best interests, or in the best interests of America. Here's why."

Most people being targeted will not be fool enough to fall for the snake oil, but those people's votes should also not be taken for granted. We are ahead in the demographics war, and we need to keep it that way! 8-)

Snave: I agree we need to "get there first" to the people being targeted by the GOP. We can't afford to get complacent just because of the demographic changes and the fact that we won the 2012 election. There have been some scary articles about how the Republicans could win the Senate in 2014, and we can't let that happen.
