More Salt for Mark Thompson’s Wounds

Hey, remember how CPAC snubbed Chris Christie, based on the logic that having someone who had asked for disaster relief might send a message that post-election movement conservatism was a joke?  

What a relief it is to see that they still managed to find a way to schedule both Donald Trump and the dead ferret he staples to his head.  Better still was Trump’s amazingly awesome solution to the GOP’s Latino problem: letting in a disproportionate number of white immigrants to get the country back on a pigment-ly homogenous track again.  No, really.  (Have conservatives already forgotten that anything remotely European is inherently liberal and what’s wrong with America?)

Oh, and they also asked Dick Morris to speak.

Please do be so kind as to share this post.

  1. Wow.
    Just: Wow.

    I can’t imagine anyone asking Dick Morris to speak.

    I can’t imagine the man’s own mother being that kind to him.

    I feel a vortex of some sort.

  2. Asking Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, and Dick Morris to speak indicates how unserious an intellectually bankrupt CPAC is. Not that it comes as a big surprise.

  3. Will Dick Morris ever shut up? The only reason the Clintons ever tolerated that little toe-sucker was because he was a sounding board, the rattles on the bottom of the Snare Drum of Stupid.

    Even Fox News is sick of Dick Morris and has given him the heave-ho. It’s a bit late to say “We Were Wrong” — after you lose the election. Though everyone remembers Karl Rove’s incredulity in the face of the Obama win, for those of us who were watching Fox at the time, Dick Morris leading the second line, confidently predicting a Romney victory.

    The only cure for Dick Morris is to boil his head for half an hour. Render off about twenty pounds of ugly fat.

  4. Tell me which is weirder:

    -Donald Trump being treated like a serious person in any capacity at all, even with regard to business sense. Things he actually has more than name to do with tend to collapse, & it’s not like he’s self-made or anything.
    -Donald Trump (despite having donated to Dems & previously endorsing single-payer) being treated as a more serious “conservative Republican” than Christie because Christie didn’t tell Obama to Fish Off over disaster relief. Is being a Real Conservative as simple as being a rich white guy open to race-baiting? Even if Christie hates Obama’s guts, he has stuff to actually do.

  5. He’s not even trying to hide his racism any more, is he?

    Though this isn’t exactly salt in my wounds – instead, it’s almost the perfect encapsulation of my point: the movement conservatism that has dominated the Right for at least the last 30 years, and which has been incoherent for about the last decade, has rendered itself completely irrelevant.

    Something is going to have to replace it – politics abhors a vacuum.

    • Something is going to have to replace it – politics abhors a vacuum.

      I mentioned this in the other thread but here’s the list of speakers from CPAC 2001 and 2002: Brent Bozell, Wayne LaPierre, Ann Coulter, Charlton Heston, Sean Hannity, David Horowitz, Allen Keyes, Grover Norquist. That was when talk of a permanent majority was considered serious, do you see a big difference between CPAC now and then? I just don’t think it’s a very good indicator of the party’s direction.
