CPAC Highlights

CPAC's starting to wind down. I'll be updating here with reports and video throughout the day. First thing to note, via Midnight Blue, is that young attendees booed Ryan Sorba's denunciation of GOProud, the Republican gay rights group:

But the issue sounds a bit more complicated in Brianna Keilar's report, "Gay Republicans Draw Support, Concern at CPAC."

Also, the John Birch Society was a sponsor of the event, which has caused some controversy as well. See, Powerline, "Return of the John Birch Society?." And at ABC News, "Far-Right John Birch Society 2010" (via Memeorandum).

More on the topsy-turvy event at Los Angeles Times, "Republicans Revel, and Clash, at CPAC Conference."
