The 2011 Conservative Political Action Cnference (CPAC), held last week, was in some respects like the previous year’s: For example, everyone loved that the place was full of young people, until the kids gave libertarian Ron Paul their straw poll vote.

There were some changes, though. Perhaps hoping to convince people in

preparation for a 2012 Obama challenge they weren’t all uptight white

guys, CPAC threw a little multiculturalism into its mix, with gays and

Muslims gaining a sliver of representation.

You can guess what followed — some of the brethren accused CPAC of selling them out to the gay/Muslim enemy.
