The Conservative Political Action Cabal (CPAC) gathers for its annual convention this week without several of its prominent members. Concerned Women for America, Family Research Council, Liberty Council, National Organization for Marriage, and other group have objected that one of the conference's sponsors is GOProud, the far-right, but still quite gay, Republican group.
Now it turns out that it's not just an anti-gay thing, however.
Who would believe that organizer Grover Norquist (of "drown the federal government in a bathtub" fame) has ties to Muslim Brotherhood? Who would believe that a panel on freedom of religion is being co-sponsored by (shudder!) an Islamic group? That's too much for many in the conservative - libertarian - tea partisan - Southern Baptistocracy alliance to bear, and even more are streaming to the exits.
How's that Biggy Tenty thing workin' out for ya?
