“Because there’s no hockey right now…”
Campus Progress is a new outfit dedicated to providing financial, logistical and strategic support to liberal groups on college and university campuses across the United States. I say “dedicated” because it’s relatively new and hugely outswamped by conservative counterparts doing the same.
Well, it turns out those sneaky Petes sent someone to the Conservative Political Action Conference to listen and learn. Wouldn’t you know it, but that mole just heard the darndest things! My personal favorite quotes from the conference:
“People in Canada are so supportive of gay rights because there’s no hockey right now and guys are just sitting around and talking about their feelings.” — Heard in Conversation
“When we get to Sen. Specter’s office, there won’t be any hippy stuff.” — Heard in Conversation
â€œLiberals like to scream and howl about McCarthyism, I say letâ€™s give them some. Theyâ€™ve have intellectual terror on campus for years….itâ€™s time for a new McCarthyism.â€ — Speech by Ann Coulter
“We continue to discover biological and chemical weapons and facilities to make them inside Iraq.” – Speech by Rep. Chris Cox (also referred to in Michelle Goldberg’s piece on CPAC)
