This should end well.

And by speak, we mean she will be running the concessions booth.

Isn't this like Sean telling his gf that they will go somewhere new and then heading back to the Winchester?
 
2013-02-18 02:16:02 PM  
Please proceed, Republicans.

Subby, is that tag for the invitation or the speaker?

I almost forgot the yearly derpfest of CPAC is coming up.  Let's see if the republicans have learned their lesson... or maybe they'll just invite white nationalists again.  Whatever.
 
2013-02-18 02:21:39 PM  
I was excited because I heard that the Scissor Sisters were coming to DC, but then I realized it was Sarah Palin and Phylis Schlafly  act at CPAC  : (
 
2013-02-18 02:21:56 PM  
I can only imagine how much anger and hate will be on display at CPAC this year.
 
2013-02-18 02:23:10 PM  
Why bother? She'll just walk off the stage halfway through her speech.

Yep.  It really is a perfect metaphor for Ms. Palin.

Forget new blood or new ideas, let's go with the same shait that doesn't work. I also saw the word 'former' in there a lot. Something something definition of insanity.

It's beginning to look like they are incapable of learning from past mistakes.

She can sell foam-rubber "We're #1!" hands with her speech written on them.
 
2013-02-18 02:30:29 PM  
How's that makeover thingy goin for ya, Republicans?

FTFA: "Palin joins a growing list of GOP favorites set to address the high-profile event, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), 2012 vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), former Florida governor Jeb Bush, former Pennsylvania senator and presidential candidate Rick Santorum, and NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre."

So... two losing VP candidates, brother of the disowned-by-the-party former President, wackaloon loser of the primaries, the CEO of an organization whose support negatively impacts the candidates it supports, and Marco Rubio. That's quite a lineup for the "new, improved, introspective" GOP.

"Learning from past mistakes" sort of requires you to believe that you've actually made mistakes in the past.

This move will definitely cause more women to vote for Republicans!

This is bad news . . . For Obama!

Honestly, I'd settle for even a token effort these days.

In their defense, I think they are trying to learn from their mistakes. The only problem is, they think their only mistake was one of poor phrasing or word choice.

I think they are just trapped by the fringe elements and have no idea how to marginalize them.

just wait until they find out the NRA is actually a CIA front group used to gather names and addresses of gun owners for fartbama. hmmmm... think i'll go post that on facebook

Yep.  They're still trying to polish the turd, rather than try to sell a more appealing product.

Though in fairness, if all your factory can produce is a turd, you'll put as much polish as you can on it.

The only way this ends up helping the GOP is if they immolate all of those people to scare the crazy wing of the party into toeing the line. Anything else is just confirming that they are exactly as awful as everyone thinks they are.

They tried to with all the shenanigans involved in getting RMoney the nomination, and damn if it almost didn't work.

They may be truly screwed at this point

That's actually a good way to see who's capable of learning from past mistakes. Have the podium for the speaker immolate whoever comes up to speak. If they can learn, they won't speak, and if they can't, they won't be speaking for very long. It's a win-win.

Is it time for another Crapsack......I mean CPAC already?

The main subjects this year will be "Why didn't the moochers embrace our hatred at them last November?"

Dear 'Real Conservatives'.

www.csmonitor.com

Stop trying to disassociate yourself from the Looney Libertarians and One Trick Tax Ponies. It wasn't just a big tent, it was a harem. And you're still shacking up together.

cloudfront.mediamatters.org

This is your 'reaching out', 2013 style. Exactly the same as previous years. It's a sham as long as these people get to define the label you want for yourself. And will continue to be the case unless you grow a pair and define the word 'conservative' as something other than ...this.
