CPAC Warmongering Etc.
The Conservative Political Action Conference in DC wrapped up today. I tromped down there Friday and got a few photos.
There were heaps of books on Sarah Palin and several organizations touting her political future. Joe the Plumber was there, along with lots of people who retain faith in all the nation’s recent wars and are confident that the next war will finally produce perpetual peace.
Ron Paul’s Campaign for Liberty was there. Paul’s activists were a breath of fresh air amidst the True Believers. A few other antiwar organizations or publications (like the American Conservative magazine) also had booths at the conference and were doing their best to wake folks up.
Here are a few snaps from the scene: [full-size versions of the photos are available at my Flickr site here]
