Suspicion, fear, and exclusion as a priority

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is where pro-corporate libertarian political conservatives and their social moralists meet each year to encourage (snipe at) each other and plan their political and culture war attacks. Of course, each year part of the unofficial program is the determination of who is and who isn't conservative enough.

Last year, GOPround, a conservative gay group, crashed the party, causing all kinds of conniptions. This year GOProud is back. Various Fundie groups are crying foul and declared they will boycott the event.

There are parts of the GOP coalition who put suspicion, fear, and exclusion at the top of their list of priorities. Other parts of the coalition see that as no way to lead. The battle might be worthy of the popcorn to watch.
