Wingnuttery at the Conservative Political Action Conference in DC

Over the last couple of days there has been a gathering of prime grade wingnuts in DC to pat each other on the back for the last election and to plan out the agenda for the next cycle. The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) calls itself “the oldest and largest annual gathering of grassroots conservatives.”

What’s hysterical is that Kos has a mole in the conference and here is what they reported on yesterday’s activities…

Today, while teaching an Internet Activist Seminar, Mike Krempasky told his conservative youngens, “Daily Kos is a site built by the hard-left. There is no doubt, they are effective – they are freighteningly effective…It’s probably bigger than the Washington Times right now.”

He was less sparing about Atrios:

“Atrios is a raging left-wing blogger. He actually hates America. He hates apple pie, he even hates his own mother.”

What a magnificent, f*cking badge of honor!

Check out who’s there:
