Success By Who's Criteria?

It's always puzzling when Fox"News" pulls out the "mainstream media" talking point. After all, don't they realize what "mainstream" means? If you have a larger audience share than anyone, YOU'RE the mainstream.

That aside, we get expert analysis from alleged "comedian and filmmaker" Steven Crowder. I guess the criteria for being a comedian AND a filmmaker is pretty low too.

Oh, so it's a success only from a "student" or "young-peoples" standpoint, even though most of the speakers were career politicians and Ron Paul ( who got the straw poll votes of the "young, student" demographic ) and this Crowder character claims they will lead the movement forward.

Turns out that even a prominent voice at Fox"News" didn't care so much for this event either.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee blasted the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Saturday as outdated, nearly corrupt and unrepresentative of the conservative movement.

Huckabee, a 2008 Republican presidential contender and potential 2012 candidate who had spoken at the conference for years, said the reason he blew it off this year was that the meeting has become dominated by libertarian activists.

While some within the conservative movement will largely ignore Huckabee's statements, we shouldn't forget that he's a frequent guest on O'Reilly and Hannity's program, so it's not like his opinions aren't valued by the villagers.

But it's Crowder's statement that people like "culture warriors" Ann Coulter, Beck, and the ever blubbery Breitbart are the "leaders" of the movement. If that's really the case, I'm not to terribly worried about anyone that attended or spoke at CPAC10.
