A Postcard From CPAC

CPAC stands for the Conservative Political Action Conference. I have been watching the videos of the major speakers there and had to lie down and take three aspirin, too.

I want you to feel equally bad so here is Rush Limbaugh:

For those who can't watch the video (either for technical or self-defense reasons), this is the summary: Welfare makes women breed more children and the government is the dad! Fathers are no longer needed!

Note that in Rush's world fathers are only needed for making money. That's why there should be no welfare whatsoever. Neither does it matter what would happen to those children in the absence of welfare payments.

It all sounds so very 1990s. Don't they have any new ideas?
