“CPAC is known as the place where the future of conservatism always starts,” former Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin told this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference audience. However, the former Alaskan Governor should think twice before raising the roof to Timbuk3.
Former GOP presidential hopeful and Libya strategist Herman Cain has come to the realization that the Republican Party may have an issue with race. It wasn’t the series of voting restrictions targeting minorities or the recent tweet from the RNC that declared racism over that bothered Cain, it was the omission of his name on a flier for potential 2016 presidential candidates.
Earlier this year, Republican strategist Steve Schmidt referred to the CPAC convention as “the Star Wars bar scene of the conservative movement.” If CPAC is the Star Wars cantina, this weekend’s Values Voter Summit may just be the Death Star.
The Republican Party finally accomplished something! Sure, it may not have been the passing of a new jobs bill or funding for our nation’s crumbling infrastructure, but not every Republican-controlled House can say they shut down the government!
Christmas came early this year for Alex Jones, Rush Limbaugh and Michele Bachmann when it was announced that the IRS had applied extra scrutiny on Tea Party and conservative organizations that requested non-profit status.
History seems to be repeating itself in Washington, whether it is the debt ceiling, the fiscal cliff or now, the subject of sequestration. I am predicting another last minute (poor) deal or extension to avoid drastic spending cuts from going into effect, but the real question is: why does this keep happening?
This past weekend, Country music star Hank Williams Jr. performed at the Iowa State Fair. You may recall last year that Williams’ theme song was dropped by ESPN’s Monday Night Football for making outrageous comments against President Obama on Fox News (where else?).
Regardless of Williams’ past, it did not prevent him from saying something incredibly stupid last Friday night.
Over recent years we have not only witnessed the Republican Party distance itself from proven science, but at times create its own fabricated version. In March, Republicans in the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a bill requiring doctors to tell women that abortion causes breast cancer. Of course, this is simply not true.
