It’s hard to decide what the best nugget is from Max Blumenthal’s coverage of the GOP convention in Washington, DC.
- Is it Michelle Malkin’s (the author who said the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII was justified) refusal to sign a photograph of Japanese Americans in an internment camp?
Is it a Tom Tandredo supporter wearing a confederate flag button who’s covers up the button when a camera is pointed at him?
- Or is it the white guy selling “Dr. Martin Luther King was a Republican” T-Shirts?
I know you’re probably thinking that I just made up those three questions. But I didn’t. Watch the video to see for yourself.

Mike Stark is doing some great work covering the CPAC conference. Speakers include war mongers, Dick Cheney, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, and Michelle Malkin, yet strangely, there are no military recruiters on hand to welcome attending college republicans with open arms after listening to the flag waving speeches:

Oh… but there’s one notable – striking, even – absence.
There are no military recruiters here. No United States Marine Corps. No Army, no Navy, no Air Force or National Guard – hell, not even the Coast Guard is here. Thousands and thousands of College Republicans, but not a single recruiter in sight…
Well, I have a theory or two (Michelle Malkin doesn’t agree with me, but more on that later).
Let’s try this: CPAC didn’t want to be embarrassed when pictures were released that showed recruiters standing around looking lonely. Similarly, recruiters know it’s a better investment of their time to troll “the other malls” rather than to recruit these nice white college boys.
Talking the talk, but not walking the walk. No surprise.
