Republican strategist Steve Schmidt just called the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) the “Star Wars bar scene of the conservative movement.” What a perfect image!
He made the comment in reference to CPAC’s not inviting NJ Gov. Chris Christie to speak this year. Schmidt called Christie “the most effective conservative governor in the country” and “somebody that could potentially change the electoral map.”
Schmidt went on to say: “But I want to set the record straight on something, CPAC is not the Republican Party.”
Well, Steve, CPAC may not be the party, but it certainly has the GOP by the balls.
