The CPAC convention gets under way on March 14th. A large group of right-wing nerds will meet in Washington DC and vow to stay on course. In other words, they learned nothing from 2012's election. True, the Republican Party has held on to the House of Representatives, thanks mainly to redistricting gimmicks, but they just don't get the changing demographics of the United States. It will be fun to watch this mind-numbing cadre of kooks as they try to pretend their open-minded, while not changing a thing. In their narrow minds, Marco Rubio is the great white hope and to this crowd, he's charismatic: that's how low the bar is in today's Republican Party. Rubio is their "hip cat", since he can quote Rap lyrics. This will come in handy during the race for the 2016 presidential nomination since it's quite obvious the Rap/Hip Hop crowd will be flocking to the Rubio campaign. Marco will be down with that.Maybe Rubio can get together with Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor and cut a Rap Tune.This crowd at CPAC is whiter than a Klan rally.
Besides not really moving on immigration reform, these kooks not only didn't invite Governor Chris Christie, but they made sure to invite Donald Trump, another guy they see as having charisma. Christie is the one guy who could maybe win back some old "Reagan Democrats", and he could be the key to bringing back moderation to this extremely right-wing party. That's why Christie is not welcomed here. Of course this crowd is still hanging on to old relic dimwits like Sarah Palin: now there's an eye towards the future. How many up and coming voters are demanding the return of Palin? Even Roger Ailes booted her moronic butt off of Fox News, along with Karl Rove and Dick Morris.
I hope to see again a relevant Republican Party because this country needs two viable political parties, and could obviously use a third. The Republican Party as it stands now, should just devolve into the Tea Party and branch out on their own. Their refusal on tax increases will cause a halt to an economy slowly but surely regaining strength. As with Obama's first term, they would rather just say no to compromise, and allow America's economy to suffer, in the name of their irrational agenda. When the economy again sputters, most of America will know whose at fault. The only good thing coming with next weeks CPAC coverage will be the endless comedic footage which will give The Daily Show and Colbert Report enough material for a weeks worth of shows. These people live in a shrinking bubble and think somehow, if they just keep pressing on with the same lame approach to a changing world, somehow people will suddenly wake up and join this legion of lemmings as they walk off a cliff, fiscal and otherwise.
