The conference, in its 39th year, provides a sampling of American conservatism. The attendees included businessmen in the Platinum and Diamond sections, and young activists in a "Conservative Dating" class ("What's your definition of attractive?" the leader asked a young man in the front row. Healthy-looking hair, he answered.).

Despite lightheartedness at CPAC gathering, tension within movement can be felt

For Rep. Steve King (Iowa), the right metaphor for the country's troubles wasn't a cliff or a book. It was a low-flow toilet.

King, a tea party favorite, described his efforts to avoid government mandates designed to save energy or water. He bought old-style light bulbs to replace curly compact flourescents that made his office too dim. He tore out a water-saving showerhead, which had extended his showers from three to 12 minutes with its low flow. And he raged at his toilet, outfitted to save water with smaller flushes.

King compared the regulators who imposed these orders to the East German secret police, the Stasi. "I want my liberty back," he said.

These messages were all a kind of warning that conservatives must unite, or watch Obama win and make things worse. "Now, the trick is to stick together," said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.).

For some in the crowd, unity mattered more than any particular candidate. When asked whom he is supporting, Guy Siebold of Fairfax County said "ABO": Anybody but Obama.

"Think of a thermometer outside - 92 degrees, 94 degrees, 97 degrees, 86 degrees - those are your Republican candidates," he said. "Minus-12 - that's Obama. ... The flaws of the individual [GOP] candidates are insignificant in comparison."

But the divisions between the candidates still bubbled up. Onstage, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, a Gingrich supporter, seemed to attack Romney without naming him.

"We need to stop pretending that the main goal of Republican governance is to do the same thing as Democrats, but just don't spend as much money," Perry said. "We can't tinker our way to victory."

At least one attendee, Jen Dicus, 21, of Medford, Ore., said she thought the flaw that Perry was harping on - Romney's past moderate views - might be an asset.

"I think that with the political climate, with Democrats [controlling] the Senate ... I think it might be helpful to have someone that is a little bit more appealing to both sides," Dicus said. "I think that might kind of promote more peace between the two parties."

Thursday was the day for presidential also-rans: Perry and Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.) spoke, along with former pizza executive Herman Cain, who told the crowd he learned that "we outnumber the stupid people. Trust me."

On Friday, three remaining contenders will have their chance: Romney, Gingrich and Santorum will speak.

With the party's message split between those three - and Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) - the conservative movement did not seem to be heeding the main rule preached by professional dating coach Wayne Elise.

Be specific about what you want, he said during the Conservative Dating session.

"When you're very specific and you tell people what you want, it'll be very memorable," Elise said.

Romantically speaking, he said, that might mean specifying what kind of person you're attracted to. Or, when you're on a date, saying, "I'm going to bring some Chapstick - in case there's some making out."

He added: "When people know what you want, they're more likely to help you reach it."


I will be randomly giggling all day as I picture the "Conservative Dating" class.

I also note the Lieberal lame stream drive by government controlled media failed to mention the White Nationalist scheduled to appear.

mrshowrules: Finally, I can talk about toilets and pooping and isn't a thread jack.

Most Australia and European toilets have two buttons on top. A half flush (#1) and full flush (#2). Why is America losing the toilet race?


I just installed 3 of these in my bathrooms 3 months ago and have seen a 30% decrease in my water bill.

Also if you have to flush twice with a low flow toilet it is likely not the toilets fault, you just need to eat more fiber instead of giving birth to turd babies the size of an egg plant with the consistency of silly putty because you eat nothing but red meat and french fries you fat fark.

See how a liberal thinks through things? If the low flow toilet doesn't work - change your diet, because the toilet clearly isn't at fault. Your old toilet worked just fine, and the new one is different and doesn't work, so it's YOUR fault.

It amazes me many people think America is the greatest country in the world and yet it's very existence is threatened by a handful of slightly left of center policies that have worked exeedingly well in the rest of the world.

What does a "destroyed" America actually look like? Are there really people who think that the results of the 2012 election may well send the US spiraling down into a state of Somalia like existence within weeks? Because a country that fragile doesn't sound like it's the greatest in the world....

Because while American conservatives thrive on telling other people how to live their lives, nothing works them up into an hysterical frenzy more than the notion that they cannot do or say anything they please, anytime, anywhere, with no consequences to them whatsoever. Which is how something as trivial as a low-flush toilet can actually become a major controversy and point of contention in this country, while people elsewhere don't even notice it.
