Living and working in Jennifer Rubin's head must be a violent daily hell. There are all those factions, and not only the demonic ones against whom she must battle, but simply keep straight--the tea partiers, the Young Turks, the neoconservatives, the milquetoast moderates, the Puritans, the libertarians, the racists, the misogynists, the homophobes, the Brookses, the Burkeans, the Romneyites and the wicked anti-Romneyites, the Guelphs and the Ghibellines.
And then there are the true conservatives, among whom Rubin is one. Perhaps the only one.
Among the demonic forces of pseudoconservatism, however, Ms. Rubin has added CPAC, CPACism, and CPACers. I quote:
CPAC has now jumped the shark by inviting the pro-choice billionaire buffoon Donald Trump. Any gathering that says Sarah Palin and Donald Trump are "deserving" of inclusion while GOProud and Gov.Chris Christie aren’t really isn’t worth attending, unless you’re looking for laughs. For this latest bizarre move, conservatives of all stripes are slaying CPAC on Twitter. At least the vast majority of conservatives can agree on something.
Whoa, whoa there, Jennifer. Wasn't it Donald Trump (whom, we note, Rubin chose to adjectivally deride as "pro-choice"; please add to above, introductory list) who just recently led your party's eventual presidential nominee in partisan popularity? Yes, yes it was.
Seems as though conservatives agreed on something then, too--that they're pretty much fucking nuts, which is indeed the largest school of thought in modern conservatism.
