Conservatives at CPAC care mostly about one thing: getting the policy right. Saying the right words is of paramount importance. And what you say today is more important than what you said yesterday (provided you didn’t make a sport of poking conservatives in the eye). And so while we all got a chuckle out of “Flip Romney,” CPAC rewards the candidate whose words (today at least) most closely match the clearly defined worldview of its audience. Much the same is true of the predominantly economic and national security conservatives in the blogosphere and on talk radio.
Just say the right words, and us CPAC fools will take off our panties.
Tax cuts – “MOAN.”
McCain-Feingold- “OH, BABY.”
End Illegal Immigration- “DO ME BABY!!!”
The Democrats want to surrender- “OH MY, YOU ARE SO BIG!”
Will these people ever stop embarrassing themselves?
