Good news: They let us in! Bad News: They let us in. The Marriott Wardman Hotel & Conference Centre is much like a mall where you can’t find anything except the big anchor store, which is Mitch McConnell. But alas, after stepping over a few mass graves, we checked into CPAC for Jesus, even Cindy McCain knows there are two T’s.

Now we are going to cover conservatives or maybe get drunk alone at the bar, STAY TUNED.

Oh, here’s the red carpet to the Conservative Dating thingie. The hallway reeks of no-sex.

Now we’re listening to Andrew Breitbart rant about the Ocupados: “I hate these bastards,” he says. “I really hate these bastards.” He has a movie coming out about them! The trailer looked so-so.

    It can't be any worse than that Amway convention I accidentally stumbled into up in Portland all those years ago. Or maybe it can.

    • The halftime entertainment at CPAC is Nickelback.

    • Dashboard Buddha

      Years ago, I used to host a monthly indoor model airplane event. Yes…we were geeks. However, during one session a group of Amway-ers stumbled in during the last hour of our time at the armory…asking us to move since they had to set up for their "convention" the next day. We explained that we had the place 'til 9 and we would leave at that time. Pushy fuckers. We graciously said they they could use the stage as long as they didn't bug us. With a hurrumph, they set about "decorating" the stage with aluminum foil…actual aluminum foil…and it wasn't even Reynolds Wrap either, it was a store brand that was thin enough to be nearly translucent. Things came to a head when one of their people wandered out into the arena proper and tried to swat a model that startled her.

      This has nothing to do with the what we're talking about other than I had an Amway story.

      I have more.

      dumb fuckers.

      This is the kind of stuff we would fly;

      • Nothingisamiss

        I had a nice time with that little story. Refreshing.

        Back to the snark.

        • Dashboard Buddha

          It was fun…but I don't fly anymore because the folks I hung out with all lost their minds when a black man was running for and eventually won the presidency. It's was pretty scary. One minute we were all, "Nice flight, George" and the next it was like that Star Trek episode where all the beautiful women turned out to be hideous salt sucking fiends. "Who the fuck are you and what have you done with my friends!?"

          • Nothingisamiss

            I remember in astonishment one day saying to my friend, "You think Anita Hill was lying?!"

            Where the fuck did this come from?!

      • Fare la Volpe

        What? Why? Why aluminum foil? To keep out the mind control rays of those Mary Kay bitches?

        • Dashboard Buddha

          Maybe the Amwayouts thought that Mary Kay wanted to test their products on them?

  • MissTaken

    I'm going to the CPA12 conference this year, too! I'm extra giddy about the "Fair Value Measurements Workshop". See you there!

    If you run into the Reverend Billy Graham, goose him for a laugh.

  • SorosBot

    I believe conservative dating consists of the man giving the woman whore diamonds in exchange for missionary position sex in which only the man gets to orgasm.

    • Fare la Volpe

      Or as Newt Gingrich spells it, "marriage."

    • Chichikovovich

      That used to be true. Conservative sex lives were revolutionized with the introduction of the first mistress-on-mogul blowjob, given by Marian Davies to William Randolph Hearst, in exchange for the home that is now the Santa Monica Annenberg Community Beach House.

      She was a true pathfinder, unjustly neglected by historians. Except one.

    • Crank_Tango

      You say that like there is some other kind of sex…

      • Really! I ought to sue CPAC for stalking me on a Friday.

    • BigDumbRedDog

      I thought conservative dating consisted of the lady getting left alone at the table while her date gives anonymous blowjobs in the men's room.

      • SorosBot

        That's conservative marriage.

  • elviouslyqueer

    Wait. Where's the Lemon Party booth?

    • If you find it please do us all a favor and paint it blah.

      Where's the John Wilkes booth?

  • Harry_S_Truman

    Hey, Jim, while you're there, can you pick me up some cool CPAC swag and a jar of Santorum?

  • In some of those fancier type Hotels you can get what is called a, "Continental" breakfast. They just give food away for free! The good ones even have waffles and hard boiled eggs! You have to get there really early before all of the other people get there and touch all of the foods.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      "The good ones even have waffles and hard boiled eggs!"

      Hampton Inn for the win!

  • Jim, I want photos of you hanging out with a red faced bloated drunk Bitpart… basically a stock photo of Bitpart.

  • ThundercatHo

    Jim, who's your (left) wing-man?

  • bureaucrap

    Jim, they were doing you a favor, so you could hide your liberal bona fides behind the ostensible spelling error. If anyone asks, just say "Won-ke-Tay dot com" (the correct pronunciation) is a Chinese venture capital firm and you are their US representative.

  • MissTaken


    Is the person wearing the acid wash jeans with no ass a man or a woman?

    • Dashboard Buddha

      That has to be a woman. But either way, I wouldn't mind stapling a few teabags to that caboose if you get mah meaning, if you catch mah drift.

      Don't forget the Groupon for the Abortionplex!

    • Crank_Tango

      Isn't it illegal to abort a fetus for gingerness?

    • Chichikovovich

      [Insert obligatory "Rape is not funny" disclaimer here. And it certainly isn't. But as Cindy McCain observed, everything is funny on Wonkette.]

      Conservative women are allowed to have abortions, as long as afterwards they tell Jesus they feel bad about it, and he forgives them. In fact, the course of action Baldar recommends would secure a comfortable wingnut-welfare income, giving 100 speeches a year at $20,000 a pop, describing in extensive detail how crushing it is to know "I have murdered my baby" because of Planned Parenthood and Hollywood.

      • LesBontemps

        Yeah but everyone knows teh Wonkete is all about assfucking, so no discount abortion necessary.

    • Dashboard Buddha

      Remember, it's not rape if you use wine coolers.

    Benen said there were 5,500 registered..whatever the fuck these people are, and 1,000 press. So that's 1 press person for every 5 assholes. Have fun! (Netroots is covered like this as well).

      I'm sure if someone was to poll the Occupy protesters, the feeling would be mutual.

    Carry a copy of the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" with you at all times. If you run into, say, Breitbart, ask him to autograph it. Then sell it on e-Bay. Then sell the story of how you did it to a magazine. You can thank me later, Jim.

    • Dashboard Buddha

      As is bishops would use condoms.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Condom? Not likely. When you spend your time fucking little boys, you really don't need to worry about getting them pregnant. And if you give him a disease, the archbishop will just move you to another diocese.

      • Dashboard Buddha

        Wait…the Tea Party is using the same font at heathen rappers AND the NYT?

        I smell a conspiracy. I bet that display is a false flag tea party setup.

    Dude, you are so getting laid this afternoon!

  • BaldarTFlagass

    From the opening remarks at CPAC this morning (via Think Progress):

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has an interesting new recruiting strategy for conservatives. “Conservatives are simply more fun than liberals, and there is a reason for that,” he told the audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference this morning. “We’re always right.”

    This just flat-out fucking beggars belief.

    • MissTaken

      • CapnFatback

      • Oblios_Cap

        If only Yertyl would publish a collection of these pithy quotes in say, maybe, a little red book. Think of the money he could make at CPAC.

        You should suggest it to him, Jim.
