The Centennial Institute, which bills itself as Colorado Christian University’s “think tank,” is hosting a veritable who’s who of the conservative glitterati at this year’s Western Conservative Summit. In the past, the WCS has featured such luminaries as Dutch anti-Muslim politician Geert Wilders and conspiracy theorizing right wing uberpundit Glenn Beck. The WCS is reliably well to the right of the political mainstream, and that’s by design.
This year’s roster of conservative stars, from ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin right on down, is sure to make poor Ryan Call blush as well:
We hadn’t heard that Ralph Reed had been rehabilitated yet from the Jack Abramoff era, but there you go! Put all of these trash talking conservative icons in one room, and if news doesn’t come out–probably bad news for local Republicans in a general election–it’s just because nobody is paying attention.
So naturally, Democrats ought to be paying attention.
