There weren't quite as many death threats on Barack Obama from the audience.
Kudos to Rob Kall for going into the "belly of the Beast". That was very, very courageous (unless he had a good disguise). But so many people weren't there to engorge themselves with all things right(eous) I thought I'd write about what I imagined it to be. So...
When people cheer a demagogue like Rush Limbow-wow, it's time to be afraid ...for people's lives.
And people were cheering, clapping, hooting not only at Limbow-wow but at the other speakers like Mike Huckabee, the man who insisted that we change the Constitution to reflect God's laws.
What I'm talking about is the Conservative Political Action Congress which has for years spewed out as much hatred and invective to liberals as any one of Ann Coulter(geist)'s books.
Look at it from a more intuitive level: the roster of "movers and shakers" reminded me of one of those little cars at the circus that stop and belch out a seemingly endless number of clowns.
Events included were:
Breakfast with Phyllis Schlafly: "Doing the Impossible" (which for Schlafly, was getting up for the breakfast)
Sarah Palin Unplugged on the Media Video Interview
Diplomat Ballroom (I'm not kidding - the irony strikes me as well)
New Challenges in the Culture War - Beverly LaHaye
Targets of the Fairness Doctrine - Tucker Carlson
Al Franken and ACORN: How Liberals are Destroying the American Election System - The Heritage Foundation
PRESIDENTIAL BANQUET Regency Ballroom
Master of Ceremonies: Rep. Michelle Bachmann (MN) (Get set for some rapier-like Christofascist wit)
And, of course, there were book signings:
Books for every persuasion - as long as it's Limbaugh's
John Bolton - Surrender Is Not An Option
