I just witnessed Ann Coulter… Ryan Sager has all the details, but essentially I watched as a popular conservative commentator called Muslims “ragheads”.
And now the line for her book signing is stretching hundreds of feet throughout the conference hall, with young and impressionable minds thick amongst their number, and the crowd is so thick in her session that when they stand to applaud they shake the camera stand and overwhelm the gain on the microphones.
And this is who’s invited to CPAC. And who we’ll remember, despite the hundreds of other speeches.
Sad, isn’t it? That those talking in sensible tones will be forgotten for the loudmouths with braggadocio. What happened to the impassioned and dedicated work of smart and talented men and women on behalf of the duty of a grateful nation? Is it lost upon the masses in favor of the reptilian revenge driven brain? The five second soundbyte generation?
I think I’m going to go be ill.
