Chris Christie is not invited to C-Pac ... good for him

Christie’s Honeymoon With Conservatives Is Over
http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/27/christies-honeymoon-with-conservatives-is-over/?hp

Roughly 18 months later, the attitude toward Mr. Christie has changed. Mr. Christie has not been invited to the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, which will gather next month. Mr. Christie’s failure to be invited is not a mere oversight; virtually every other prominent Republican who might be a plausible nominee in 2016 has been asked to participate.


and in other news ... A political party known as the "Republican Party" continues to self destruct .. Viewers are advised to take a pee(k) at specimens before the species goes extinct.

1. CPAC is an annual train wreck, and we're at least two years out from when it would

matter who appeared there anyway.

Just look at their all-star lineup for this session.

5. Agreed - He's No Dummy....

isn't he up for re-election? Given that and the support he's gotten from Dems in his state - he's not taking any chances that he screws that up. So I wouldn't be surprised if he told CPAC don't invite him or that he turned down their invite.

I have a friend that has another theory - he says that Christie will be the next Dem candidate for President in 2016. He thinks that Hillary will not run and that Christie will switch parties. I just laughed - but stranger things have happened.

6. And he's a hard-core conservative

so that tells you something about C-Pac, or as I heard it described last night, the bar scene from Star Wars.
