America’s dumbest Senator is making a statement:

Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) is the latest Republican who has chosen to skip this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) over its inclusion of a pro-gay group.

“With leading conservatives organizations not participating this year, Senator DeMint will not be attending,” Wesley Denton, a spokesman for the senator, told CNN. “He hopes to attend a unified CPAC next year.”

Yes, unified against gays, because he’s an unreconstructed bigot…

For once, I agree with Dan Blatt at Gay Patriot:

Leading conservative organizations? Well, Heritage isn’t participating. That’s about the only leading conservative organization I can think of that’s passing on the event. Seems some of those supposedly leading groups are up in arms that GOProud is participating organization.

Heh. I agree that groups like CWA and FRC need to, you know, get a hold on their delusions of grandeur and realize that they represent a demographic that’s rapidly, um, dying off. In fifteen or twenty years, the FRC will be lucky to get a kiosk in the lobby.
