He told me that there was a slight problem: the Tea Party group, which co-sponsored this People’s Choice Blog Award, didn’t want to allow me to receive it at CPAC next week unless I promised not to criticize Grover Norquist and Suhail Khan as I accepted the award.
I told the organizer that I couldn’t agree to that. He asked me if I had planned to talk about Grover and Suhail. I said no, I hadn’t, but I had to now.
So that’s that. The People’s Choice Blog Award is now the Grover’s Choice Blog Award.
I will not be going to CPAC and will not be receiving this award.
CPAC is an annual booze- and snatch-fest for careerist “conservative” hacks.
Why do you still put your faith and trust in “groups,” whatever name they give themselves?
