Some Notes and Funny Pictures from CPAC
It's always fun when CPAC comes to town. And once again, for the second year in a row, Texas Congressman Ron Paul won the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll for President, marking his annual "This is as close as I'll ever get to the GOP Nomination" moment.
I would like to thank Talking Points Memo and Jeff Malet for their usual fine coverage and ability to sit through CPAC without gouging out their own eardrums with their felt-tipped pens.
Now, some funny, funny commentary on some of the pictures Mr. Malet took for TPM.
Of course, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was a crowd favorite!
Bright, young GOP "Star of the Future" Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD) served as proof that the Palin/Bachmann/O'Donnell "Pretty, Conservative and Dumb" clone machines are up and operating ahead of schedule.
Utah Senator Orin Hatch spoke to the CPAC crowd, blissfully unaware of a large — something — in his left nostril.
Wyoming Senator John Barasso made sure that he suffered from no such defect. Look. You can almost see his brain!
Former Minnesota Governor and Presidential Wannabe Tim Pawlenty wanted you to see HIS brain, TOO! Maybe it's just me... I can't see a THING!
...except for what seems to be a suspect foreign object in HIS left nostril. An illegal alien, perhaps? Let's go in for a closeup.
AHA! I THOUGHT SO! (Someone give the Governor a hanky...)
Although Pawlenty DID win the night's award for "Dental Excellence and Thoroughness in Flossing."Continued on the next page
