Your fearless, would-be leaders

More proof of the cowardly, obsequious nature of the so-called “conservative” commentariat, in case you needed it:

One of the points of CPAC is the opportunity it gives college students to meet other young conservatives and learn from our leaders. Unlike on their campuses—where they often feel alone—at CPAC they know they are part of a vibrant political movement. What example is set when one highlight of the conference is finding out what shocking phrase will emerge from Ann Coulter’s mouth? How can we teach young conservatives to fight for their principles with civility and respect when Ann Coulter is allowed to address the conference? Coulter’s invective is a sign of weak thinking and unprincipled politicking.

CPAC sponsors, the Age of Ann has passed. We, the undersigned, request that CPAC speaking invitations no longer be extended to Ann Coulter. Her words and attitude simply do too much damage.

Lawsy, I nearly swooned when I heard Miss Coulter use that dreadful F-word! No, not that F-word, the other one. Needless to say, I won’t be joining this attempt to drum one of the few genuine conservatives left out of the conservative movement. Although now perhaps you understand why I am so content to remain completely outside both the conservative movement and the conservative commentariat; a more spineless group of useless, self-negating pussies have been seldom seen outside of France.

I wonder if Me So Michelle will dare to sign the letter. You know she’s just dying to, but she’s afraid it might sink her with Ann Coulter’s many fans.
