Time for the paranoid, the hateful, the dishonest and the just plain crazy to convene for their annual idiocy-fest!
Party like it's 1799!
If you wanted a glimpse into the alternate universe in which the righties live, this is the place for you! Here, for example is someone who ought to be a reasonable, responsible person, Mitch McConnell:
"You all know the liberal playbook. Here's how it works: Pick a target, freeze it, personalize it and then polarize it. But rarely have we seen those kind of tactics employed with the kind of zeal that we see today. The White House and it's lieutenants have made an art form out of the orchestrated attack. ... You know the drill. Expose the folks to public view, release the liberal thugs on them, and then hope the public pressure or the unwanted attention scares them from supporting similar causes down the road."
Liberal thugs. Isn't that an oxymoron? Aren't liberals supposed to be white-wine-sipping, Volvo-driving, Tree-hugging vegans?
And picking a target, personalizing it and polarizing? That's the Andrew Breitbart playbook.
And then there are guest speakers like Peter Brimelow, who writes for a website named "V-Dare." He writes lovely articles like:

Rep. Steve King Defends White Nationalist On Conservative Panel
Washington, D.C. -- Iowa congressman Steve King is unconcerned about the implications of his appearance during a CPAC panel on "The Failure of Multiculturalism" featuring a white nationalist author, Peter Brimelow.
"I don't know anything about that," King, who came to the event to talk about his English Language Unity Act, told BuzzFeed -- though he'd earlier told Brimelow that "I've read all your books!"
And CPAC is just getting started. Way more horrible ugly insanity to come!
