CPAC ended with Sarah Palin's rendition of 'Green Eggs and Ham'

The annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) ended on Sunday and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul won the straw poll as the favorite to represent his party as their presidential candidate.

After three days of speeches by leaders in the Republican Party, the finale on Sunday was the darling of the Tea Party Sarah Palin. It is customary at conferences to refer to the last speaker at the conference as, "The Keynote Speaker." It is in that vein that Sarah Palin's words and actions are prominent in the news following the conference.

A better name for the conference would have been, "The Bash Obama Conference." Each speaker despite the fact that many of them had either run for president or hope to run for president, demeaned the current occupant of the office to the point that hatred for Obama was the theme of each speech.

It got so bad until many casual observers wondered if someone was going to mount the podium and blame Obama for the missing aircraft with 239 passengers on it. They might as well have blamed him since he has been blamed for decisions made in Russia in regard to Putin's invasion in Ukraine.

Michele Bachmann kicked off Sunday's festivities at CPAC by explaining that the Tea Party is "at its core an intellectual movement." That brings the finale of Sarah Palin into question as to who selects the speakers for these gatherings.

Matthew Dowd who served as chief strategist for George W. Bush was concerned after the 2013 CPAC when Chris Christie was snubbed and Sarah Palin was given a prominent role.

Dowd stated in 2013:

“CPAC, to me, has totally diminished its credibility as an organization,” Dowd agreed. “And you invite Sarah Palin, who wasn’t competent enough to keep a Fox News contract? But she’s invited to CPAC meeting?”

This synopsis of the "Dog and Pony Show" commonly called CPAC will not allow me to get into the religious hypocrisy portrayed by the likes of Paul Ryan and Mike Huckabee, but to suggest that the Constitution of the United States of America is based on the Bible can only make a person wonder what Bible and what Constitution they are reading.

After years of referring to Barack Obama as a Muslin, you would have to wonder what religion they claim to "Hold these trues to be self evident?" If the hatred that spread out of the Gaylord Hotel in Washington, DC this past weekend was rooted in some religion only a brain-washed ideologue would have anything to do with it.
