CPAC Christie, in other words, bears no meaningful resemblance to New Jersey Christie.[source]
It's primary season for Republicans--and silly season for every sensible American Person--as the Republicans rush to the right in their attempt to prove to the big money that they are more conservative than the next guy. It's sad that they can't just be themselves, but the need to bow down to the big money conservative fat cats outweighs any ethical considerations in their rush to get elected. CPAC has just concluded with most contenders for the Republican vote showed up and bowed down to the rich conservative contributors. It would be funny if it weren't so impactful on our governing process. The influence of money on our political process is shameful. Politicians are more influenced by political contributions than anything else and the people who blindly follow large contributors while driving themselves into poverty are sad.
