The CPAC Idea-Shortage
by

I’ve been wandering around CPAC today, and I have to say I find a lot of it rather depressing. There’s a whole lot of talk about strategy and getting the message out (especially through Twitter and Facebook), but surprisingly little about what the message ought to be. It hasn’t always been like this; in past years there have been heated policy debates at CPAC over issues that divide the right, like drugs and immigration. There’s a foreign policy panel later today that promises some friction, but that’s about it. The right needs to be hashing out its policy ideas if its going to be politically relevant again in the post-Bush era. I would have thought this would be obvious, but apparently it isn’t.
