re: #260 Slumbering Behemoth

If Rudy Giuliani can tell a Saudi prince to fuck off with his $10M check, then CPAC can sure as hell tell the JBS to fuck off with their piddly little check.

There’s no excuse for taking money and giving a cosponsor space to a conspiracy mongering, antisemitic organization.

Guiliani didn’t tell the prince to shove his check until he said “America was asking for it.”

And we’re all better off with the Birchers spending their money on worthless PR like CPAC than on more successful recruiting tactics.

And I repeat: the Birchers are nuts, but so far have never been DANGEROUS nuts. They’re not scary, they’re laughable.

What do you have against laughter?

Of course, that could change in the future, so we better keep an eye on them. And what better way to keep an eye on them than allowing them to hang out on the fringe, instead of going full-blown underground?

OK, making them pay for the privilege of hanging out on the fringe. That’s even better.

If I was going to CPAC, my main reason would be to visit the Birchers. To take their free swag. And laugh at them.

If I went to Nutroots Nation, I’d make sure I had all my shots first. And my insurance card handy. And possibly a bodyguard.

Fortunately, I’m going to neither…
