The zombie GOP

comes out to play at CPAC:
“We’re alive,” Rep. Michele Bachmann (MN), who emceed the evening session, said. “We’re not going anywhere. Remember this is ground zero for the conservative movement.”
RNC Chairman Michael Steele competes with Bachmann to see who can make the most cringe-worthy statements:
“Tonight, we tell America: we know the past, we know we did wrong. My bad. But we go forward in appreciation of the values that brought us to this point.”
As he concluded his remarks, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann — the event’s moderator — told Steele he was “da man.”
“Michael Steele! You be da man! You be da man,” she said.
although an alleged “you be da man” video is inconclusive at best…
So perhaps Steele wins this round, considering the video shows him ending his speech with “Let’s get busy… Let’s get out there and fight for those things that we believe in,” which considering the retch-inducing manner that Steele recently invoked a hip-hop costume for the ‘new GOP,’ it is quite the cringe-worthy double entendre to make…
but that was at the end of the day!
Earlier at the CPAC conference, Tucker Carlson gets booed and heckled for suggesting that conservative news organizations act like the NYT, and report facts accurately…
But the crowd was just getting warmed up…
and LOOOOOOOOUD NOISES!
