Judging from what viewers saw and heard from the recent CPAC conference in D.C., are right-wingers exhibiting a "split-personality" regarding most of today's issues?
Rachael Maddow posed an interesting question about the CPAC (Conservative Political Action Committee) gathering in Washington ... While the CPAC straw poll picked Libertarian Ron Paul as their favorite candidate to run against President Obama in 2012, several other wannabes - i.e. Newt Gingrich, Donald Trump, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Donald Rumsfeld - presented down right "authoritarian" proposals - i.e. banning same-sex marriage; giving tax $ to church schools; censoring books, movies, and music; repealing parts of the 14th Amendment; denying reproductive choices to women; pushing a more aggressive foreign policy of nation-building ... In their eagerness to please both their Tea Party "base" as well as their high-rolling corporate financial backers, is the so-called conservative "movement" suffering from what can only be described as an identity crisis of mammoth proportions?
