Conservatives Boot American Atheists From Booth At Conference →

CPAC aren’t interested in a big tent after all.

We don’t have leadership coming out of Washington, we have reality television.

Rand Paul at CPAC about foreign aid to Egypt: ‘Not one penny more to countries that are burning our flag!’

That’s right, buddy. No more Social Security checks for you and your American friends.

So, it’s the country of Egypt that burns the American flag? It’s not individuals in the country? Rand Paul holds all of Egypt responsible for the things any Egyptians do? Because if I had to be responsible for things other Americans do, I’d like to get off right now.

Look! It’s another group of White people who think they’re the victims of racism. Let’s all laugh at them!

Ann Coulter’s “I think there should be more jailed journalists” comment reminded me that Coulter, like Tucker Carlson, is a pathetic left-over, struggling to hold on to the bottom rung, the lowest tier of conservative commentators. She and Carlson aren’t like Hannity or Limbaugh, those two are successful. Coulter is just a poor impression of a successful conservative windbag.

Her desperation to shock reminds me of this Onion article:

Marilyn Manson Now Going Door-To-Door Trying To Shock People

OVERLAND PARK, KS–Stung by flagging album sales and Eminem’s supplanting him as Middle America’s worst nightmare, shock rocker Marilyn Manson has embarked on a door-to-door tour of suburbia in a desperate, last-ditch effort to shock and offend average Americans.

Accompanied by bandmates Twiggy Ramirez, Madonna Wayne Gacy, and Zim Zum, Manson kicked off his 50-city “Boo” tour Jan. 26 in Overland Park, a conservative, middle-class suburb of Kansas City.

"When we first laid eyes on Overland Park, with its neat little frame houses, immaculately landscaped lawns, and SUVs in the driveways, we couldn’t wait to swoop down on it like the Black Death," said Manson, born Brian Warner in Canton, OH. "We were like, ‘Welcome to our nightmare, you bloated, pustulent pigs.’"

Last Friday at 4 p.m., Mark Wesley, 46, a resident of Overland Park’s exclusive Maple Bluff subdivision, heard the sound of “animal-like shrieking” coming from the vicinity of his front lawn. Upon opening his front door, he was greeted by the sight of a pale and shirtless Manson carving a pentagram into his chest with a razor blade.

"Look at me, suburban dung," Manson told Wesley. "Does this shock you?"

When Wesley replied no, he said Manson became “petulant.” Recalled Wesley: “He started stamping his feet and shaking his fists, saying, ‘What do you mean no? Aren’t your uptight, puritanical sensibilities offended? Don’t you want to censor me so you don’t have to confront the ugly truth I represent?’ So I say, ‘Well, not particularly.’ Then, after a long pause, he says, ‘Well, screw you, jerk!’ and walks off sulking.”
