The Department of Unintended Consequences

CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, selected Ron Paul in their presidential straw poll.

Now, before I LMAO at the silliness of the whole thing, let me wallow in schadenfruede for a moment. See, FOX news has always gone batshit over this CPAC thing and whoever won the straw poll usually became the FOX news darling/whore for the next year. Unfortunately for them, Ron Paul doesn't really fall in with their agenda and they are a little upset.
Huckabee, now a paid Fox News contributor, joined other conservatives in kicking sand on Paul's victory, telling one of his coworkers that he abstained from CPAC because it had been taken over by libertarian activists.
My how times have changed. Last year, it was huge, the year before, it was huge. This year, according to FOX news, not so much.

Heh Heh Heh.

Now, for the part that makes me LMAO: Ron Paul is not what the conservative party wants on any level. He's far too radical for them. Which just shows once again how silly politics really is.
