The Crooks at CPAC
WASHINGTON D.C. — You have to hand it to the conservatives here at CPAC. They’re a forgiving lot. They believe in second chances, even for felons. Why, just this morning, I heard a speech by a guy who sold missiles to a government that sponsored terrorism, lied about it, got convicted, and then dove like a scalded rat through a loophole. I watched a panel including a guy who, while working as police commissioner in New York, entangled himself in such baroque corruption that he ended up in the federal sneezer for 36 months. And, this afternoon, on a panel entitled “After Obama,” we will be treated to the views of a guy who helped out a covert CIA agent, lied about it, got convicted, and then got pardoned.
There is no crime on the Right that cannot be forgiven — except, maybe, supporting something this particular president proposes.
